Hollow Earth Radio's Magma Fest: Traveling Light Rail Show

Hollow Earth Radio’s annual, month-long Magma Festival always showcases the unique and unconventional acts of Seattle’s musical underground and beyond, but it’s probably never done so in as weird a way as with tonight’s traveling show on the city’s light rail system. The evening begins at the International District light rail station with a “summoning performance” by Prawnyxx, then continues with a “musical tour guide/overture” on a southbound train to Sea-Tac. Once there, passengers/audience will deboard and pick one of two northbound trains, “Light Rail” or “Dark Rail,” the identity and import of which won’t be known until the trains take off. Will it be entirely acoustic or will someone turn up with amplification? Will transit goons bust up the party or will indie rock ride the rails with impunity? Will you choose lightness or dark? Hop aboard and find out. With Racer Sessions, Tahoe Jackson, Toy Boats, Jordan O Jordan, Jamey Braden, Forrest Friends, Walrus Machine, Paul Hoskin, The Beaconettes, Movitas, Led to Sea. ERIC GRANDY
