U-District Jazz Walk

Over the past year, David Pierre-Lewis has managed to achieve what few club owners even attempt: He’s gotten the kids into jazz. His LUCID Jazz Lounge on the Ave. has become a regular hang for twenty-somethings drinking in the retro bohemian atmosphere and soaking up local jazz acts like Hardcoretet and organist Ron Weinstein. Thursday nights is the Hang itself—Josh Rawlings’ and Evan Flory-Barnes’ jam session, formerly at Lo-Fi. To celebrate the one-year anniversary of the space, Pierre-Lewis has organized a night of concerts up, down, and around the Ave.—everyone from the Galway Arms to A-Pizza Mart is participating, with 23 local bands on board. Guitarist Leif Totusek will get your evening started right at Curio Confections, while Rawlings and Flory-Barnes’ band will close out the night at LUCID itself. 5241 University Way NE. lucidseattle.com/jazzwalk, Event runs until 2 a.m. Free ($5 wristband pays the musicians and gets you discounts on food and drink).
