From the official announcement:

We are very happy to be bringing Zero Times Everything to Seattle. TThe NYC-based trio - featuring Seattle native Tony Geballe, Pietro Russino, and Richard Sylvarnes - brings a new dimension to Seaprog by creating an immersive audio-visual experience. California will be represented by the amazing Jack o’ the Clock, a Bay Area band with a unique sound that has been garnering praise for several years, with their latest album gracing many Best of 2016 lists.

But once again, our focus remains on highlighting the talent available in the Northwest, with bands representing Seattle (Omni, Paraeasthesia, Pinto Wagonfire, Moon Letters), Portland (Human Ottoman), and Bellingham (Ibex).

Additional extremely appetizing acts are currently in negotiation and will be announced in due time. Look for periodic artist profiles to come on our Facebook page.
