HVRST House Showcase

latin funk afro soul

That soothing yet profound fire in your Soul. The feeling of elevation, but with a deep-rooted Culture. Now imagine mixing that with a strong hit of Funk, chopping up a little Jazz, a steady (HEAVY) shake of Afro-Beat, and served in a Cuban Cigar smoked glass. This cocktail of flavors is what we call T E Q U I L A F U N K.


We are a family of Musicians and Artists that can vary from a 6-15 person ensemble and you never know what surprise guest will be joining us. You are guaranteed a unique experience every time.

dreamy indie rock

La Fonda is an indie rock band from Seattle fronted by Filipino-American sisters, Valerie and Veronica Topacio.


Centering their songs around themes of sisterhood and navigating the chaos of adolescence, addiction, xenophobia, and gentrification––to name a few––La Fonda creates sonically atmospheric, shoegaze-inspired tracks falling somewhere between dream-pop and alt-rock.

gunk pop

Hailing from the birthplace of grunge, Black, queer-fronted trio Black Ends belong to a subgenre of their own creation. Not quite psych-rock and definitely not indie, they established their elusive, sprawling sound on the 2019 EP Stay Evil, proving themselves to be completely unlike any band in the contemporary Pacific Northwest DIY scene.

Opener: Princess Pulpit

July 14th

The Whags grew out of a group of longtime musical friends who began collaborating in the summer of 2017 when an impromptu show crossed their paths. The resulting songs would become the foundation for an ever-growing repertoire, incorporating sounds of groove-driven psychedelic funk, harmony-laden sunshine americana, and the swirly, soulful improvisation of another era..

SuperSones play the sublime music known as Son - the acoustic dance music of the Cuban countryside that inspired modern Salsa. Son is a unique blend of Spanish guitars and harmony, Afro-Cuban percussion and swing, call-and-response singing, and trumpet improvisation.
