Sun July 18th ~ The Round @ Zoo Tunes

The Round 62 featuring Star Anna, Damien Jurado and many more –

Sunday July 18, 5pm at the Woodland Park Zoo


Fremont Abbey Arts Center’s highly popular multi-arts event, The Round, steps outside up the hill from 43rd avenue in Fremont Village to perform at ZooTunes.

In its 62nd incarnation, this multi-arts collaborative show featuring live music, poets, painters, and an improv band will spotlight local favorite Star Anna. Born and raised in Ellensburg, WA, Star Anna is known for her alt country/folk sound and fiercely evocative vocal styling. Former Guns n’ Roses bassist and Seattle Weekly music writer Duff McKagan says of Star Anna, “She will be a talent that we can all say that ‘We saw her when . . .’ Guaranteed.” Also featuring local performer Damien Jurado.


SINGERS:  STAR ANNA, DAMIEN JURADO, MARK PICKEREL, GABE ARCHER, CARRIE AKRE
IMPROV BAND: EMILY ANN PETERSON (CELLO), STEVE NORMAN (PEDAL STEEL), SCOTT TESKE (BASS), LACEY BROWN (PERCUSSION)

+ CELLIST PAUL RUCKER backing the poets & more

SLAM POETS:  MATT GANO, ELAINA ELLIS, YOUTH SPEAKS POET

LIVE PAINTERS:  GLENN CASE (EASY STREET MURALS), NATHAN DEAN (ZOO EMPLOYEE), ANGELA LARSEN + YOUTH PAINTER FROM URBAN ARTWORKS

Yes, The Round is going to the Zoo this year!  The show goes outside each summer (Nathan’s, Greenlake, Rodstal Lane Farm past two years)… but this is definitely the biggest show ever.  A rare local lineup and very low ticket for a Zoo Tunes show ($15!). We are very honored to be invited to support the Zoo with this benefit show, especially since we’ll be near the Meerkats and Snow Leopards.
