Almost every night of the week, Seattle’s stages offer a roster of regional indie-folk artists, do-it-yourself punk bands and homegrown comedians, as well as nationally touring pop stars. To that end, choosing something for your night out can be a daunting task. This weekly guide can help by filtering for recommended shows, select dates and your favorite genres.
This week’s highlights
Kalimba: The Spirit of Earth Wind and Fire — An EWF Experience, 8 p.m. Saturday, May 25, at Triple Door. Fans of the iconic funk and soul band Earth, Wind & Fire looking to experience their music live are in for a treat. This nationally touring tribute band was created in 2011 by lead vocalist Thomas “Chazz” Smith. As their name suggests, the goal of the band is to keep the spirit of Earth, Wind & Fire and the work of the band’s late founder alive.
Sego, 9 p.m. Friday, May 27, at Sunset Tavern. This Los Angeles-based band is touring their second LP “Sego Sucks” throughout the summer. In addition, the band will be hitting up a few music festivals along the way including Bonnaroo and Bellwether Fest. Sego’s music is a good match for lovers of staticky guitars, grooving bass and thought-provoking lyrics.
