7:30pm – show
All ages, mostly seated, bar w/ ID (local beer, wine, cider to support charity).
CATHEDRALS concerts are a unique open floor concert experience, quiet picnics welcome. Available seating includes chairs, benches, and some floor space around the stage area. We recommend bringing cushions and even blankets if you’d like. Audience can sit or lay down anywhere around the stage.
Saint Mark’s is ADA. Wheelchair seating area is to the left of stage near the front. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Please refrain from talking or texting during the show. No cameras with audible shutters or audible sounds allowed.
To create a “giant living room” effect we offer an unusual concert experience with informal seating on the floor up front surrounding the stage and lots of pews, benches, and chairs around the space.
We highly recommend you bring blankets and cushions to create a more comfortable experience whether sitting on the floor or seats. Quiet and non-messy snacks/picnics are allowed. No outside alcohol please.
For best sound, arrive early for center floor area and any area on stage not marked with signage. You can also sit all around the back of the stage if you like but sound will be a bit limited there.
We are unable to provide a separate soundproof room for viewing this event. These shows are very very pin drop quiet so please consider that when deciding what ages are appropriate. No cry room available at this venue and even voices in the lobby will be heard in the concert space.
Lemolo is the Seattle dream pop project of songwriter Meagan Grandall. While the band has garnered comparisons to Cat Power, Feist, Beach House, and Warpaint, Lemolo’s growing buzz comes from a fresh and distinct tone that is truly their own. Led by Grandall on vocals, keys, and electric guitar, and accompanied by a talented host of Seattle musicians, the band is known for their energy, edge, and ethereal beauty.
“Heavenly harmonies” – The Seattle Times
“Impressive dreamy soundscapes… and [majestic] songwriting” – KEXP 90.3 FM

About Galen Disston / Pickwick!
“Listen to LoveJoys, the sophomore release from Seattle, WA’s Pickwick, and you’ll hear a band that has pushed aside external pressures and expectations, overcome internal demons, and plugged
directly into their own creative center. Slinky, sinewy, and articulate, the record pulses with a palpable confidence. Hypnotically intricate, just-right sonic ornamentation shimmers around a thick, undulating
bed of propulsive rhythm. Submit willfully, give yourself over to Pickwick’s practiced ministrations, and you’ll find yourself exhausted and deeply satisfied, slick with a sheen of glitter and sweat.” – Artist Bio
About Brenda Xu
“Without ever falling into the trap of drama or tragedy, the composer writes her odes as others would note poems in a diary, with the ambition to change things through the purity of words and harmonies… Overflow is a conversation with Brenda Xu, between light and shadow, between look at oneself and admiration of the other.” – Stay Curious Over
