By Ian Bremner, a like-minded Seattle cultural webzine focusing on Seattle music & artists for nearly 25 years is throwing “#Nadafest,'” but don’t dare call it a music festival. It is mearly a gathering of local acts from the website’s list of “41 We’re Watching” over the last two years.

Nadafest will take place October 21-23 at Seattle’s Substation. Substation booker, Tim Basaraba sums it best: “since it’s almost October and everyone is so sick of festivals that they just want to puke, we thought this was the perfect time to not have one.”

Leave the festival garb at home. The only lines will be for at the bar, and it’s an actual bar, not a tent with $9 beers lined up carnival style. No gimmicks, no cash grabs. 100% of door sales will be split evenly between bands. The “fest” is $10 a day with music going all night.
