For a free night out enriched with music, head out to Hidmo. The Central Area restaurant is hosting a free summer concert series, called “Live @ Hidmo,” with such Seattle artists as Laura “Piece” Kelley, Orbitron and J. Pinder. “We want to make local talent accessible to the local community,” said Rahwa Habte, Hidmo’s managing owner. All sorts of music will be represented every Friday — soul, spoken-word, funk, pop, rock and hip-hop. And shows are all-ages. The setting is an intimate family atmosphere, where the Who’s Who of the local arts community go to relax and sit back as audience members.
Seattle’s THEE Satisfaction is being filmed this evening by MTV for a segment called $5 Cover, a reality show starring young Seattle bands directed by Lynn Shelton(!). If you want to come out to Hidmo in the Central District today for the filming, they need extras. But in order to be an extra on the set, you need to email firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP and he’ll get you on the list. You’ve got to be available from 4 p.m.–10 p.m.
