Spacecraft lands on KEXP’s radar

From our friends at Spacecraft, who’ve been bringing a succession of interesting regional artists to Rolling Bay Hall on Bainbridge Island in recent months. (As much as I’d like to take credit for the above headline, it’s straight off their release. Full disclosure.)

“Spacecraft, the new Bainbridge Island arts non-profit, has gotten the attention of Seattle’s premiere alternative music outlet, KEXP. Two upcoming Spacecraft shows at Rolling Bay Hall have been designated as “recommended,” and will be presented by Audioasis, KEXP’s long running Northwest music program, hosted by DJ Sharlese.

1106_KSFE_BrothersThe first show is Seattle-based hip-hop trio Brothers From Another (pictured at left) on Saturday, November 7 (7:30 p.m., doors open at 7). Travis Thompson, spoken-word poet and rapper, opens. Next up in the series on Friday, November 13, is Gifted Gab (8 p.m. show, 7:30 p.m. doors). “Gabby” Kadushin has been compared to Queen Latifah, and deserves comparison to Missy Elliot as well.

Morgan Terry, Spacecraft co-founder and artistic director, said, “KEXP plays many of the artists who have performed for Spacecraft audiences. It’s an honor to have KEXP checking us out and wanting to be involved in our shows. We’re stoked to have them representing.”
Both shows are presented by Spacecraft at Rolling Bay Hall, 10598 Valley Road NE.

Advance tickets are available for $10, and $12 at the door.
