Free First Thursdays at EMP|SFM offers free admission and music from 5-8 p.m. on the first Thursday of the month during winter hours. Due to capacity issues, Battlestar Galactica: The Exhibition will be closed during these evenings.
December’s Free First Thursday:
Performances by surf rock masters King of Hawaii at 5:30 pm and lounge pop provocateurs Lushy at 6:30 pm in Sky Church.
Lushy concocts a refreshing pop style that blends bossa beats with elements of lounge, surf, new wave, ska and sixties pop to create their own distinctive intercontinental sound…think Jetsons on Vespas with swizzle sticks and distortion pedals. Lounge-y and danceable holiday fun with special guest Lynval Golding of The Specials! Listen to them here.
Formed in 1996, King of Hawaii is an all-instrumental five-piece band that hails from Seattle. With all-original compositions, the band is inspired by a range of music that includes 1960’s surf music, Spanish flamenco guitar and the works of guitarist Johnny Marr. Listen to King of Hawaii here.
