Honkfest Fundraiser

Honkfest West, the annual convergence of dozens of brass bands from around the world, hits the streets of Seattle in mid April. This weekend, the festival's local organizers are throwing a benefit party to raise funds for the necessary permits, venue rentals and hefty travel expenses. Even on a small scale Honkfest boasts an impressive line-up of musicians, with scheduled appearances from Orkestar Zirkonium, Titanium Sporkestra, Tubaluba and the Yellow Hat Band.

Admission is pay-what-you can, with a suggested donation of $10-20. Show runs from 8 p.m. until 2 a.m. on Saturday Jan. 30 at the Underground Events Center. More info here.
