Event description

Description

Come celebrate the start of the crowdfunding campaign for wild experimental horror film Skagit by jamming to the sounds of Salt Lick, Velvet Q, and Cop Talk! All event proceeds go towards funding the completion of this locally-made low-budget feature film. You'll also have the first opportunity to see a trailer for the film, featuring Seattle artist Whitney Ballen's cover of a song by Mount Eerie.

Skagit is an experimental horror film about four friends who leave Seattle for a weekend in a remote, rain-soaked corner of the rustic Skagit Valley. The foreboding October landscape begins to warp their minds, plunging each of them into alternate realities where they must grapple with personal demons, sexual tensions, and a sinister natural world as they claw their way back to sanity.

ONLY 50 ADVANCE TICKETS AVAILABLE. Get yours now below by making a donation to Skagit (includes 1 free drink ticket!). Pending availability, tickets will also be available at the door.

At the event, you'll have the opportunity to to contribute directly to Skagit's Indiegogo campaign and claim Skagit-specific rewards that differ by donor level.

Stop by, hear crazy stories of the production from the cast and crew, meet new friends and mingle with local artists, and partake in some fabulous homemade hors d'oeuvres and Skagit-themed cocktails.

EXACT LOCATION FOR FRIDAY AND VERY IMPORTANT PARKING INFO:

The concert will be held at a house on Edmunds St and Martin Luther King Way, right next to the Columbia City Light Rail Station in South Seattle. Turn west on Edmunds (right if you are facing south) from MLK and go up the dead-end hill (the street becomes the driveway) and it is the first house on the right.

We highly recommend you take public transportation as it's extremely convenient and we don't want anyone driving under the influence. There is NO PARKING ON THAT SIDE OF THE STREET ON MLK OR EDMUNDS – you will have to park on Edmunds or surrounding streets on the other side of MLK. Do not attempt to drive up the driveway, you will have to awkwardly turn around. If you do drive, it's easy to park in the neighborhood on the other side of MLK and cross the street to walk up the driveway.

The exact address will be sent in a message to those attending. You can also message us if need be for the exact address or with any questions.

Skagit is written & directed by Nick Thompson and produced by Leah Trangen, Hailey Williams, Tracey Breese, and Rachel Price. The film was shot during three cold, muddy weeks in November 2018 at over 20 locations around the Skagit Valley and Western WA. The vast majority of the shooting budget went to paying the small all-local cast and crew and now we need the funds to pay other talented folks to bring the film to the finish line.

With the funds raised through your generous support, we will be able to pay for sound mixing and color correction – processes essential to completing the movie.

Beyond completing our film, we want to ensure you and all sorts of audiences get to see it! Any additional funds will be dedicated to film festival fees and expenses. We made Skagit with the intention of highlighting this unique region and community and your support will help us get it out there to the locals who helped make it possible. We can't do it without you!
