Seattle is where non-conformist music and independent radio took hold, and that spirit has never been more relevant than it is today. We put down roots there with Ace Hotel Seattle, the first Ace ever, and it will always feel like home. The ashen skies, reams of flyer molting from telephone poles and transcendent coffee are indelibly engraved in the narrative tableau of the formative years of DIY culture.
We’re honored to keep the noise alive with our second year of live broadcasts with Seattle’s own KEXP during CMJ. We’re more thrilled than ever to host three days of bands and DJs from independent labels in the lobby at Ace Hotel New York, powered by Toyota’s Free Yr Radio. A stalwart of Seattle’s music history, Art Chantry, presents an archival show of Seattle rock posters, Thanks for the Memories. Art’s poster work for emerging 90’s band influenced several generations of graphic designers and exemplifies the strength and dynamism of Seattle’s music culture.
Art is also creating a poster for the Ace x KEXP broadcasts — screenprinted by DL Screenprinting in Seattle, a print shop specializing in artist print editions and show posters by poster artists like Jermaine Rogers, Emek, Brad Klausen, Justin Hampton, Rob Jones and Gregg Gordon. The limited edition poster will be available exclusively at Ace NYC during the broadcasts.
All sets will be broadcast live over the airwaves in Seattle and everywhere else online and via podcast. Keep an eye out here for real time posts, photos, videos and interviews.

There’s a game Kerry Washington likes to play when strangers approach her on the street. “I guess what they’re going to say they recognize me from,” the 34-year-old actress explains. If it’s a teenage guy? “You’re the blind girl from Fantastic Four!” A European? “It’s always The Last King of Scotland.” A lesbian? “She Hate Me!”—for its Sapphic sex scene, of course. The one performance that everyone recognizes her for is the long-suffering wife in Ray. “That’s the wild card in Uno,” she says with a laugh.
