Round Pegs
Thursday, August 31. Bar Redux. 9PM-11PM. FREE. Booking
Founded in 2008, by P.H. Fred (its always his circus), The Round Pegs are the gigging version of Mister Fred's Round Pegs and Bass Peeps. The Bass Peeps version of the Round Pegs has members of such upright quality and noteworthiness, they are incapable of appearing on the same stage. Should that happen, a vortex of musical clashes and chaos would open and all of New Orleans swallowed. In fact, we are surprised this doesn't happen any time any member of The Round Pegs sets foot on stage.

Sleeping Lessons is the latest Seattle indie-rock band on the block made up of Charlie Deane, Paul Kowalczyk, Dan Moretti, and Terence Bonsey. The collective resume of Deane, Kowalczyk, Moretti, and Bonsey precedes them, having played in a variety of projects ranging from international b-boy sensation Don’t Talk To The Cops, Seattle surf staples The Echo Echo Echoes, and backing the indie-folk prodigy Sophia Duccini. While Bonsey was championing basslines to breakdancing competitions around the world; Deane, Moretti and Kowalczyk were busy sharing bills with artists such as Car Seat Headrest, Washed Out, Deep Sea Diver, Diet Cig, STRFKR and even Odesza . In less than a year since their debut on Seattle’s famed Big BLDG Bash Festival main stage, Sleeping Lessons have started to create some serious momentum for themselves across the world with their self-produced debut album Red Sprites. Already the band has had support from influential radio stations worldwide such as Seattle’s KEXP, Boston’s WEMF, and RKC in Paris. Even rock and roll hall of fame DJ Marco Collins is a fan, calling Red Sprites “one of the best debut records I've heard come out of the NW in a long time!” Things keep going from strength to strength for the young Seattle band, who returning from their second west coast tour have just been added to a slew of the Pacific Northwest’s most exclusive bills including Fisherman’s Village Music Festival, Mercer x Summit Block Party, and most recently Capitol Hill Block Party.
