    9pm show | 8pm doors | 21+ | $8 presale tickets available via Ticketweb, through the artists, in the Hard Rock Cafe Seattle Rock Shop, or at the door for $12 CASH ONLY. Both Below Blackstar and Post Adolescence will be release new albums. Double Release Party!!! Below Blackstar the group offers up its own blend of hard rock, ambient shoegazing, and acoustic music - sometimes within the confines of the same song. the combination of this myriad of sonic landscapes with provocative lyrical themes is designed to reach into the very heart of the listener, evoking an honest introspection, and ultimately creating a sense of harmony within the dissonance of the spirit. http://www.reverbnation.com/belowblackstar Post Adolescence : Drawing from 80s post-punk sounds of the Buzzcocks, Placebo, and Manic Street Preachers, Post Adolescence and their album “My Nothing” demonstrate a British Post-Punk-Glam sound that belongs only to them. These pure pop sounds find the “young and angry” pleasure center for which all of us lust. In the truest sense, they are at the leading edge of the next wave of the post-modern rock movement. http://www.postadolescence.com/ Trip Like Animals - https://www.facebook.com/TripLikeAnimals This is a live music venue, there is extremely minimal seating available on a first come first served basis. Please direct questions to seattle_live@hardrock.com
