Basement State is a Seattle-based collective, a small community, and an event series where musicians bring house show vibes to the internet and local venues.
Some Fridays we stream on Twitch with resident artists as well as friends and guests from elsewhere. Occasionally we bring the show to Seattle venues for in-person shows.
We started in 2020 as a place to jam together online, experiment and try out new music with a friendly audience. We’re welcoming to all, aim to be musically diverse and often feature live visuals. Our only real rule is that everything we do is live and there is no pressure to deliver polished sets.
Join us on Twitch Fridays from 8PM PT.
You can also find us on Instagram for show announcements.
I’ll share lineups and previous sets below.
We’re also seeking artists who’d like to play guest sets with us – please reach out if you’re interested!
Here are a few clips from previous nights featuring Leandrul, Herr Shield and myself.
Annnd, to reply to myself, here is this week’s lineup. Should be super fun!
How long does each artists get to play for (on average)?
We usually do 25min slots, but if someone has a specific idea we can plan for it
This week (tomorrow!) we have… DJ Weak Acid, @ezbot, c.m.barth and Harsh Realm (@PacificNorthWes)
And here are the sets from last week
This is amazing & I missed it until just now. Looking forward to checking out the sets tomorrow night.
I recently moved from the East to Ellensburg, WA and looked forward to meeting some synthesizer people out here. But then pandemic, etc.
I perform under “David B. Applegate” - lmk if you ever need a fill-in!
Just reach out to @markeats or myself and we can get you in the line up some Friday.
