Racer Sessions

Sundays, 8-10pm at Cafe Racer in Seattle, WA

This Sunday: Kickball at Cowen Park & A Cornucopia of Opening Performers

Along with the new season come winds of change at the Racer Sessions. The weekly Sunday sessions will assume a more multidisciplinary scope, regularly showcasing the work and creative process of artists working in other fields such as dance, poetry, and visual arts. While experimental and spontaneous music is still the focus of the sessions, we hope that a more diverse array of performers and artists will further inspire and sustain the growth of our creative community.

Kicking Things Off


To, uhh, kick things off this Sunday, we're having a pre-session kickball game at nearby Cowen Park. We'll start around 4:00pm!

This Sunday's session will feature short opening performances from Christian Pincock, Neil Welch, Chris Icasiano, and the group Sir Christopher Wren (who you may have seen at last week's Median Show).
