Iconic local chillwave group, Beat Connection, will be headlining a line up at Neumos this Friday that promises sparkly Balearic sounds just in time for the sunshine. While the group may have started as a duo, their roster has changed quite a bit over the last few years. What started with the live addition of musicians who had lent their talents on record, has swiftly morphed into a shrinking roster, with the current line up including only three members. One individual missing from the stage stands out more than others. Founding member, Jordan Koplowitz, has left the group for greener pastures. Beat Connection co-founder, Reed Juenger, explains: “(Jordan) just wasn’t feeling it. Trying to make a band work is a ton of fun, but it’s also a lot of hard work, it’s not for everyone. We had some set backs, and I guess he just wanted to pursue other things in life.”
Fans can expect Beat Connection to branch into some new musical territory, but Reed assures us that the sound will stick closely to the foundational roots the group began with. “We aren’t gonna make an ambient screamo record or anything,” he says. The Neumos show will be the perfect opportunity to check out what the new Beat Connection has to offer. The venue is exactly the right size for this band, and has even become one of their favorites to play. “We are always on a feedback loop,” Reed says, “so our favorite shows are ones where the crowd is just going for it, (it) helps us get into it. This tends to happen most in like 300-600 person rooms. The last time we were at Neumos was maybe one of my favorite shows ever, the sound and the lights were amazing and I’m really looking forward to making a return.”
Supporting Beat Connection on the bill will be similarly chill acts, Painted Palms and Onuinu. Doors open at 8PM on Friday, May 17th, with advanced tickets going for $15 a pop. The show is all ages, so every one’s invited! Bring a friend and bliss out to some brilliant beats and beaming melodies.Tweet

VOX MOD is Seattle’s most extreme positive viberzzz. I got a chance to see them this past Saturday at Lo-fi and was blown away by their sheer starburst-like energy. They are sure to radically transform Barboza on May 19th with a lightning bolt rush of spazz-matic ear candy with one goal…FUN. The trinity includes Scot Porter, drummer Trent Moorman accompanied by Ben Van Citters on visuals. Dance Party!
It’s getting to be that time of the month! Art Ache is upon us once more, this time with a special Cinco de Mayo installment of the popular pop-up art market. Featuring a bevy of local shops and artists slinging their gear to the beat of a live DJ (this month features music by DJ Ruben Mendez), budget-conscious shoppers can sip $3 mimosas (or pound $5 whiskey shots, if you cray) while scouring the racks for affordable vintage, fine art, collectibles, and crafts. As per usual, the party kicks off at 1PM at Chop Suey on Capitol Hill, and is, as always, free to get in. As yet another amazing event presented by No Sleep, expect to have a great time surround by fabulous taste.
