After two years of programming live music in the Olympia Ballroom, Olympia music MVP Daniel Landin is bringing a live concert series downstairs to the Urban Onion Lounge.

Beginning tonight, weekly Wednesday night music acts will perform in the lounge, which serves as an all-ages gathering space until 11 p.m. Shows will begin at 8 p.m. and entry is a $5 suggested donation.

"The Urban Onion is a great room that will provide opportunities for more intimate shows, as well as larger crowds to dance and have a great time," said Landin. "I have started this series to give local bands an opportunity to perform and engage Olympia audiences, as well as giving great touring acts an opportunity to introduce themselves to Olympia."

First on the roster is The Funk Agency, followed by local bluegrass legends the Oly Mountain Boys Oct 9, local acoustic rocker Mudcat Oct 16, Sean Gaskell plays the kora, a West African harp, Oct 23,and the month rounds off with a gypsy jazz guitar ensemble led by Ariel Calabria Oct 30.

"I am hoping to connect Olympia with high quality performers on a regular basis here," said Landin. "Just as we get into the wet season, a warm place to have a good time with loved ones is always welcome - in this case with really great music."

WEDNESDAY NIGHT CONCERT SERIES, w/Funk Agency, 8 p.m., all-ages until 11 p.m., Urban Onion Lounge, 116 Legion Way SE, Olympia, $5, 360.943.9242
