The Factory...

The Seattle City Arts Festival 2011 kicked off tonight and features a weekend chalked full of various types of music including hip-hop, rock, folk, and R&B. There are definitely a couple that caught my eye...and my cash. The most intriguing will be Friday night. Members Only has put together an interesting show at Fred's Wildlife Refuge on Capitol Hill. Dubbed "The Factory", the show is a collaborative effort between many of the upcoming artists in the Northwest. Check out what they had to say: 
We set out to create a one-of-a-kind event showcasing the talent in Seattle’s hiphop scene by connecting artists in ways that have yet to be established. After gathering our friends and family, who were excited to participate in the event, we dropped their names in a hat and came out with a list of super groups that will each create an original song to be performed October 21st, and perhaps never again. 
Sounds dope right? That's what I thought too. I mean check out the groups that came out of all this...
