The Alkis
The Alkis

For songwriter Carly Calbero and drummer Nika Wascher, The Alkis was an inevitability. After years of incorporating Wascher’s unique drumming and harmonies, the switch to a band just made sense. Their chemistry is undeniable onstage and their rhythmic, high-energy songs are a welcomed change from the typical girls-playing-music. In June they will be debuting their first EP – Bright Eyed Kids. You can expect some great things from this new Seattle band.

The Coffee Break Concert

So, you’ve done the yard work, walked the dog, washed the car, updated your Facebook profile, and now you just want to set with an iced coffee… maybe have someone else make you a nice sandwich… and listen to a few songs you’ve never heard before, played live by some local artists in an intimate setting. Well guess what. The music is free, and so is the ambiance and the air conditioning.

Join us every Sunday afternoon at 2:00 for “The Coffee Break Concert”, hosted by Lamar, with guest artists who have been invited to perform for your listening enjoyment.

Poetry Open Mic

SoulFood Poetry Night is curated by Michael Dylan Welch, and has been running since July of 2006. We ask one featured reader to select someone else to read with them. This process echoes the sense of community and connection that is central to SoulFood Books, brings in new voices, and helps to create harmony or contrast in our reading series. Featured readers start shortly after 7:00 p.m. After we have a break to enjoy the bookstore, its art gallery, and especially its café, we have an open-mic reading where we invite you to share your poetry. Our featured readers are mostly from the greater Seattle area, but we welcome poets from farther afield as well. More info:

SoulFood CoffeeHouse Presents Jessica Lynne

SoulFood CoffeeHouse is pleased to welcome Jessica Lynne to our stage for the first time. If you’ve been watching the local music scene these last few years, you’ve no doubt witnessed Jessica’s meteoric rise in popularity in the region. This is a “Don’t Miss!” show on the East Side!

About Jessica:

Sometimes authentic country music artists do not grow up in what we would consider hotbeds of country music. Sometimes they grow up in Haslev, Denmark, the native town of current Seattle resident, Jessica Lynne, a sensational and rising country star and one of London Tone Music’s most successful artists.

Since signing to London Tone Music, Jessica’s life has been a whirlwind of activity and it’s definitely not stopping anytime soon, as she shares, “I was able to continue on with my music career on a full time basis. I have opened for amazing artists like Keith Anderson, opened the Watershed Festival with headliners like Lady Antebellum and Tim McGraw. I have assembled an amazing team and we are planning for a full album release through London Tone Music and an extensive promotional tour to support it! We are all very excited about it!”

Tickets Available Now: Brown Paper Bag Tickets – Jessica Lynne

Doors at 7PM, Show Starts at 8PM
