West Seattle's premier music venue.

We book a variety of indie rock, pop, electronica, americana, folk, punk, hard rock, metal, experimental, jazz, triphop and more – usually three acts per show Thursday through Sunday. We also feature weekly karaoke, monthly bellydance, and occasional burlesque and drag events. You can rent our space for music video shoots, film shoots, or private events.
