RX FEST 'Featured Artists'



RX FEST 'Featured Artists' is a two hour program dedicated to the Bands & Artists of this years RX Fest 2023.  RX FEST 'Featured Artists' will premier on Racketeer Radio KFQX Saturday March 18th at 3pm Pacific Standard Time and run each weekend until Sun, April 9TH leading up to RX Fest which takes place the weekend of April 14th, April 15th and April 16th live at Nii Modo 1402 3rd Ave. in the heart of Downtown Seattle and the home of the Punk Rock Flea Market Seattle.


Seattle has changed a lot over the years. Recently, several bars who provided a platform for smaller local artists have closed permanantly due to either land purchases and plans to bulldoze, or they just didnt pull through the pandemic. Developers have also torn down most of the houses that would draw a solid 200 person crowd for acts such as Rose Windows (who would later sign to Subpop), the band Tacocat, and even members from grammy award winning band Portugal the Man, were active in bands playing house venues in basements and garages across the city. Regardless of housing prices, before the big tech booms, or superbowl wins or coffee,bSeattle has been a music haven-especially for the undergound.

Rx Fest wants to revive the feeling of finding your new favorite band while you're shoulder to shoulder with strangers, whom quickly become like family. Over the course of the third weekend in April, the Punk Rock Flea Market and north Seattle's Animal House will showcase some of the most active (and best! duh!) punk(-ish) artists from across the region. Join us in livening up third ave and giving the blade a run for its money.

This is a crowdsourced project, run by the artists and volunteers. All donations, sponsorships, and ticket sales will go back to the volunteers, bands, and to the venue, so we all can continue to provide a safe space, welcome to humans of any age. Although, we love dogs-please no pups other than licensed service animals (even then, maybe not?).


Animal House Seattle: Animal House started in 2022 as an all-ages house venue in North Seattle, and has now been shaped into something much larger than that. After amassing a substantial following and hosting shows for almost the entirety of 2022, Animal House has since decided to expand its creative directions by working with other venues, organizations and more. Animal House has always strived to provide a safe space for LGBTQ+ people and their allies alike. As an organization they always work towards providing the best experience for the artists and audience as well. Additionally, In 2023, they hope to take their ideas to the next level by hosting more shows, sponsoring more events and providing many opportunities for young creatives to have a space in Seattle where they can enjoy the culture and feel safe and welcomed in any given space that we are a part of.

Punk Rock Flea Market Seattle: From humble beginnings in a burnt-out Belltown basement, Seattle's Punk Rock Flea Market has grown into a living breathing organism with ideas of its own. Several times each year hundreds of vendors from around the region converge at a temporary location to sell an enormous and unpredictable variety of treasures. Like a combination police auction and neighborhood swap meet in Andy Warhol's garage. PRFM Seattle is proud to be a co-sponsor of RX Fest.
