Sad that the Seattle Jazz Showcase is winding down?

Too broke for Earshot?

How about checking out the Columbia City Beatwalk? The BeatWalk is a monthly, community music event, which takes place on the first Friday of each month in the Columbia City neighborhood. For one low cover price of $5.00, you can stroll around and hear/see live music in 7 different venues! That’s a lot of musical bang for your buck. Venues include a book store, a health club, an art gallery and several bars and restaurants. There is a variety of programming and there are always at least a couple of jazz acts. This Friday, the Garfield Jazz Quintet will be playing at Bookworm Exchange. This is one swinging, little group, and these teenage musicians already have some fierce chops going on. If gypsy jazz is more your thing, the Djangomatics are playing at Lottie’s Lounge. The BeatWalk takes place this coming Friday, November 2 from 7-10pm.
