He Who Honk Fest, Honk Best

Speaking of Orkestar Zirconium, this weekend brings the second annual Honk Fest West to the streets of Ballard and Georgetown. Honk Fest is a celebration of the music of street bands from around the world. This year, some 15 bands from around the continent are coming to party in the streets of Seattle, including the above mentioned Orkestar, the renowned Leland Stanford Junior University "Scatter Band", and the much beloved March Fourth Marching Band from Portland. Honk Fest begins on Friday April 10th in Ballard, travels to Georgetown on Saturday evening, hosts an open-to-the-public brunch at Gasworks Park on Sunday afternoon, and culminates on Sunday night in an all-star line up at The Vera Project in Seattle Center. A full list of bands, line-up and venue information can be found here.
