    Music | Poetry | Visual | Collaboration

    The Round features three songwriters sharing the stage, sometimes with a backing band. They alternate with a slam poet while one or two visual artists create live throughout the show and paintings are available for silent auction afterwards.  Audience members sit quietly a few feet away from a low stage, all together to create a unique evening of high quality & collaborative arts. Look forward to a unique finale on most shows, and often some crowd participation.  Musicians can only play the Seattle Round once a year, so it’s always a unique mix.  The Round has featured major acts like Damien Jurado, Nikkita Oliver, Mary Lambert, David Bazan, Haley Heynderickx, Buddy Wakefield, and many more.  www.TheRound.org

    WHAT IS CHOIR?

    Daveed Goldman and Nobu Adilman (AKA “DaBu”) started Choir! Choir!Choir! as a weekly drop-in singing event in February 2011. Equal parts singing, comedy, and community-building, the night unfolds like a dream: you get a lyric sheet at the door, DaBu teaches you the vocal arrangement, and a video is recorded. Everyone has a ball and goes home feeling great!

    A unique open floor concert experience, quiet picnics welcome. Seating available, including chairs, benches, and floor space.  See ticketing page for event details regarding quiet, cameras, etc.
