Table & Chairs is excited to celebrate the Racer Sessions’ third birthday with a festival at Café Racer. The festival will run from Friday, January 18th through Sunday, January 20th. There will be multiple Table & Chairs artists performing throughout the weekend, as well as many other Seattle-area artists. Cry & Roar will be an accumulation of the talent seen at Café Racer so often over the past few years.

This year, the festival is not simply dubbed “The Racer Sessions Festival” once again, in order to honor a fallen member of the Racer Sessions family. Andrew Carrico passed away recently, and had only begun attending the Racer Sessions a few months before he left us, though he left a lasting impression on so many. He once described his sound on the baritone saxophone as “somewhere between a cry and a roar” — a more than apt description.

The weekend of the 18th, we remember our friends, appreciate our loved ones, and celebrate music.
