Hey Marseilles

When: Tue., March 24 2015

Columbia City — south of downtown Seattle — is home to gypsy-style folk band Hey Marseilles that has commandeered a century-old house as sanctuary. The six-piece outfit expanded in popularity enough to perform at festivals like Bumbershoot and to tour nationally, and to buy said house. Renovations later, they're actually able to record inside it, if not nearby. (Seeking unique acoustic opportunities, they have also recorded in a church sanctuary, a tunnel and a mostly empty office building.) Hear their efforts tonight at 8 when they'll play Ivywild School (1604 S. Cascade Ave., tinyurl.com/l4fn6gy), perhaps our own burgeoning Columbia City. Tickets run $12-$15. — Jess Agius
