Popaganda Episode: Seattle is a Queer Music Boomtown

Popaganda Logo

Bold new bands fronted by LGBT folks are busting open Seattle's music scene, which has long had a reputation as the epicenter of a sound dominated by plaid-wearing indie rock dudes. We talk with the organizers of Seattle's 'Mo-Wave queer music and arts fest, get music picks from queer music podcast Homoground, and talk with show-stopping Seattle band Glitterbang. This episode pairs well with our recent QueerShake mixtape, which features bands like THEESatisfaction and Magic Mouth.  


The song that plays throughout this show is “Seaside” by Night Cadet. Make sure to check out 'Mo-Wave in Seattle during the week of April 11th, they have a lot of great shows planned!
