Good Friday Service @ Grace Seattle

On Good Friday, the church in somber remembrance celebrates the trial, crucifixion, and death of Jesus on the cross. For followers of Jesus, Good Friday isn’t just a commemoration of a historical event. Rather, it is remembrance, even a reveling in Jesus’ sacrificial life and death on our behalf. In it, we remember that our King gave himself for our benefit; we remember that the scorn, mockery, pain, suffering, and grotesque death that we deserved because of our sins was taken upon the life of King Jesus instead.

All are invited to celebrate this special service with us. Kids activities will be available for children 6 months to 3 years.

First look: the new Neumos and The Runaway

Some 25 years after its birth as Moe’s Mo’Roc’N Café in an old Salvation Army at the corner of 10th and Pike, Neumos showed off the results of its 2017 overhaul with a party Wednesday night.

There is an upgraded sound system and new lighting to keep the club rocking. There is a new life for the old Moe Bar next door. And there are smaller changes — yes, the bathrooms have been redone — and new details like a plaque to honor longtime friend of the club, Jon “Gash” Sanders, who died in 2016 and is remembered as the “Pope of Capitol Hill.”

“Our new sound system will blow you away and possibly is the best in the city,” Neumos talent buyer Steven Severin said in a message to friends about the reopening. Continue reading

Diplo, Run the Jewels, and 21 years on E Pike: Capitol Hill Block Party announces 2017 lineup

Neumos, the Pike/Pine club behind the annual music Capitol Hill Block Party, is already celebrating this week with a Wednesday grand re-opening marking its new sound, new lights, and new bar. Tuesday morning, owner Jason Lajeunesse once again returned to Seattle’s KEXP to announce the lineup for the 2017 edition of CHBP, the event’s 21st year as a major music festival.

Slated for the weekend of July 21st to 23rd this year, here are the headliners for 2017, Lajeunesse’s 11th year with the event: Continue reading

The quiet start to 2017 is over for Neumos and the live music venue at the corner of 10th and Pike is ready to unveil the results of its overhaul — and a new form for its next door lounge.

Let’s start with the music. Neumos and its underground sibling Barboza now have a new sound and light system and a system of “seven closed circuit TV monitors of the Neumos stage for live performances in the mezzanine and other areas of the venue.”

Additional upgrades include:
· New mezzanine layout, completely opening up the balcony to the showroom.
· Fully renovated bathrooms in mezzanine and main floor.
· New stage and production areas.
· New layout in the showroom, include removing the small bar near the stage and adding a new bar in the back of the showroom.
· Complete heat and AC system installation.
· Displayed poster archives from the last decade.
· Exterior building mural honoring the musicians and bands that have graced the stage over the last 20 years, designed and painted by local artist Wierdo.

Meanwhile, the old Moe Bar is gone. In its place, meet the Joan Jett-inspired, Paseo sandwich-powered The Runaway: Continue reading

Dino’s Tomato Pie baking plan for new music venue below E Olive Way

Dino’s Tomato Pie is kind of like a Denny at E Olive Way time machine. Its next stop is a small start in reversing the neighborhood’s trend of restaurant concepts and developments pushing out the last vestiges of the Capitol Hill music scene.

“One, I like the idea of anti-gentrification, where small music venues are closing, we can actually add something,” Brandon Pettit tells CHS about a project he hopes will eventually create a new music and events venue at Dino’s.

Two, Pettit has a Dino’s-sized underground level to work with below the bustling pizza joint. Continue reading
