Seattle Soundbite, a benefit all about food and music, happens tomorrow night (Thursday, March 19) at the Showbox SoDo at 6pm, for $15 a head.
Think a mini indoor Bite of Seattle, in which 13 restaurants will serve up “street-style” (read: small and portable) versions of their fare, for $3 a pop.
Which restaurants? Barrio, serving wild salmon ceviche with coconut milk, cucumber, and mint. Cremant, with French-style mini tuna baguettes. Palace Kitchen with roast pork, Purple Café and Wine Bar with gorgonzola-stuffed dates, Quinn’s Pub with—drumroll please—wild boar sloppy joes. And that’s not even telling you what Ray’s Café, Serafina, Tango, or Via Tribunali will serve.
Yes, there will be music. Six Seattle bands. Only rock bands with at least one member working in the food service industry were invited to submit audition tapes. Those selected include Bird Show of North America, Sue Quigley, Doctor Doctor, Puget Sound System, and Truce. Helio Sequence will headline; DJ Reflex will keep it going between sets.
Benefit for whom, you ask? The Vera Project (the all-ages music center—interesting since the Soundbite event itself is 21+), ProStart (super cool program bringing restaurant professionals into high school classrooms), and the Washington Restaurant Association.
Tickets are obtainable through Ticketmaster or at the door.
Now go get hungry.
