Death and Music KEXP in Seattle, Damien Jurado, Ian Moore, Star Anna, Tomo Nakayama

Tonight’s (11/8) Death and Music event is SOLD OUT, but a very limited amount of tickets will be available at the door. This year’s event will include performances from Damien Jurado, Ian Moore, Sean Nelson, Tomo Nakayama, Star Anna, and Daniel Blue of Motopony.

KEXP will open the Gathering Space for the fourth annual Death & Music. It’s a special event, hosted by The Morning Show DJ John Richards, that really goes beyond a traditional concert experience. It’s a time to reflect on grief, on the people we’ve lost, and heal with our community. Alongside performances from local artists, people will be stepping up to share their own stories, and “an exploration of the intersection of these two distinct veins of life and how they feed into one another.” Ahead of what’s sure to be a beautiful and emotional evening, we asked a few of the artists to share a song that’s helped them in their life as they’ve coped with grief. These are their stories.

Death & Music starts tonight at 6PM. The KEXP Gathering Space is located at the KEXP studios at 472 1st Ave N in Seattle.
