KPTZ’s Party at the Fort fundraiser will feature live music by critically acclaimed Seattle funk maestros, Polyrhythmics. Local favorite Lowire will get the evening started at 7pm on Friday June 1 at Fort Worden’s USO Dance Hall.
This exciting concert is another example of KPTZ’s effort to broaden our cultural impact by offering live musical performance to complement our robust broadcasting schedule.
KPTZ has teamed up with PT Brewing Company to craft our very own special release beer, the KPTZ Fortifier APA (American Pale Ale). This new brew will also be unveiled at our June 1 event. Proceeds from every keg sale and every draft or bottle sold will contribute to KPTZ’s capital campaign for relocation and expansion of our studio and transmitter to Fort Worden over the next two years.
Rich with bold brass and hypnotic percussion, Polyrhythmics latest album, Caldera, showcases the instrumental, eight-piece, impossibly tight grooves and virtuosic musicianship as they tear through a singular blend of funk, soul, psychedelic rock, R&B, progressive jazz, and Afrobeat.
This is an age 21+ show featuring a beer and wine garden and raffle prizes. Doors open at 6:30pm. Music starts at 7pm with Lowire and features Frank DePalma, Sean Mugrage and Cameron Dalsimer.
Advance Tickets are $25 and available through Brown Paper Tickets, at Crossroads Music, Quimper Sound, and at the current KPTZ studio at Mountain View Commons. This event is proudly sponsored by the Port Townsend branch of New American Funding and the PT Brewing Company.
