The Sunset Tavern is turning 10 this year and celebrating with a weekend-long party. For four nights next month (June 24-27), the Sunset will host shows featuring performances by Jason Dodson of the Maldives, Tomo Nakayama of Grand Hallway, Kinski, and probably most excitingly, a reunited Cops. Says the Sunset:
The Sunset has been a mainstay for live music nearly every night since June of 2000, offering shows of rock n' roll, alt-country, punk rock, metal, hip-hop, electronica, singer-songwriters, comedy, Kung Fu movies, and pretty much anything else you can imagine... All while having the cleanest bathrooms in rock n' roll.
The anniversary shindig will also be part food drive, part fundraiser:
The Benevolent Fez & Mask Society will be on site to spearhead our food drive and fundraising efforts. We have chosen our neighbors the Ryther Child Center and the Ballard Food Bank as the recipients. There is an increasing need in our community to help put food on people's tables. The Ballard Food Bank serves 4000 individuals a month. They provide food, clothes, hygiene items or emergency financial help each week to households in Ballard, Magnolia, and Queen Anne. They have seen a tremendous increase in the need for the services that they provide in 2010. Ballard Food Bank will begin operating from its new location 5130 Leary Ave this summer. We want to welcome them to their new digs as we celebrate our 10th year.
