Built To Spill, Murder City Devils To Play EMP Shows

Built To Spill, the Supersuckers, and Murder City Devils are among the artists that will be getting "experienced" over the next few weekends as part of the Northwest Passage Concert Series being offered by the recently-opened Experience Music Project.

Former Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan and Goodness singer Carrie Akre will also participate in the weekend series of live gigs at the Seattle-based music museum, with Lanegan set to launch the shows on October 13.

The Northwest Passage Concert Series will then continue for the next five weeks. Local folkster Willis will then play the EMP's Sky Church on October 20, followed by Akre on November 4, Built To Spill on November 11, and the Supersuckers on November 18. The Murder City Devils will close out the series on November 25.

Opening acts for the shows will be selected by each of the headliners, and as the title of the concert series suggests, will focus on rising artists from the Seattle area and

the Northwest region.

In June, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Eminem, and Matchbox 20 were among the acts that helped celebrate the opening of the EMP, which was launched under the auspice of Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. The EMP was originally intended to be a museum dedicated to guitarist and Seattle native Jimi Hendrix (see Metallica, Dre, Kid Rock, No Doubt To Play EMP Opening").
