I gotta say, I'm seriously impressed with the line-up that Kwab Copeland pulled together for the first REVERB Local Music Showcase. Bumbershoot and the Block Party have their place in terms of big, national headliners and mainstream appeal, but this city has been sorely in need of a festival that puts the spotlight entirely on both established and up-and-coming local artists who are doing innovative or enduring work.

Conceived in the same spirit as our monthly Easy Street Records Outsider performances (the next of which is with the Cave Singers), the idea behind REVERB was to focus purely on local bands. There's a slight emphasis on relative newcomers like the Pleasureboaters (pictured above), the Maldives, Das Llamas, TacoCat, Throw Me the Statue, Fleet Foxes, "Awesome", Macklemore and Siberian, plus a sprinkling of old school stalwarts like Girl Trouble, Mark Pickerell, and the Dusty 45s. There are also plenty of stellar DJs set to throw down over at Hazlewood, including the Death of the Party/Sing Sing crew (Pretty Titty and FourcolorZack) and my KEXP colleague and human-encyclopedia-of-musical-knowledge, DJ El Toro.

All this will take place October 6 on 9 different stages in venues around Ballard, 3 of which will be all-ages. Tickets go on sale on our website on Wednesday, September 19 and are just $8 ($10 day-of-show).

Between the fact that he's in the process of taking over booking for Jules Maes and Last Chance Chili, I'm really stoked he was able to put together such an awesome schedule. Thanks Kwab! Full line-up is after the jump.
