The Astronaut, the Electric Theorbo, and the Plan that Wasn’t

When I arrived in Seattle in 2013, the Live Music Project was just a little nugget of an idea. On March 31, the LMP turned 3! I want to pinch it on the cheeks and say annoyingly, “I knew you when you were this big!”

On Tuesday, April 11, we’re throwing a party for the LMP so we can all pinch its cheeks. There will be cupcakes, door prizes, musician/composer Aaron Grad, his electric theorbo (it’s like a large lute mixed with an electric guitar)… and an ASTRONAUT named Heide.

Heide will tell stories about mishaps in space.

Aaron will improvise based on a flight of beer.

The program begins at 6:30pm at Naked City Brewery in Greenwood. Tickets are $15 online and $20 at the door (very limited availability).

Can’t make it but would still love to support us? DONATE HERE and watch the livestream!

Happy birthday, little LMP!
