Local Music Only

urbanXchange once again proves they are about way more than cool clothes by announcing the release of a Local Music Only compilation CD and an end of summer event Friday, Sept. 7. The idea for the CD came to store owner Julie Bennett mid-summer while talking about the local music scene. She put the idea out to employee Brandon Hughes, who produces a lot of local music, and let him run with it. Bands including Papa Loves Momma and Friskey and others from Dear Records and Team Unicorn brought in recordings of their songs and then selections were made.

Most of the young adults involved seem to link directly back to Tacoma School of the Arts, which is turning out highly-driven creative types left and right. Bennett’s intention with the CD is to create more of a music scene by showcasing bands that are actively writing and playing. She sees the compilation as a fun, iconic way to draw attention to the talent of what she calls “the very underground music scene.”

Bands featured on the CD will play live in the store Friday, Sept. 7 at 8 p.m. As always, the event is all-ages. Expect a Dance Party Dress Up contest, too. â€" Jennifer Johnson
