TONIGHT: Art show at Cairo, Swahili LP release show at Chop Suey

So much exciting stuff going on tonight!

I was recently appointed as the new co-curator of visual art exhibitions with Katherine Humphreys at Cairo in Capitol Hill. Tonight our first exhibition opens from 7 to 9 pm, featuring fiber art by Colleen RJC Bratton, painting and installation by Isabel Blue, and ceramics by Brier Kaik (aka Kiln Witch). Please stop by!

After that, tonight is also the Seattle album release party for AMOVREUX, the new LP by Portland-based experimental pop quintet Swahili, which has just been released on Translinguistic Other. Swahili has been one of my favorite bands for a very long time, and we put out their 2012 debut album as well. I’m so excited to be sharing this gorgeous new record with the world. It comes with two original tarot cards and a download code! (Stream / order here.)
