Seaprog will be happening on first weekend of June, 2017. As usual, it will kick off with a night at the Royal Room – Friday, June 2. Then we'll have two full days of music at the Columbia City Theater, Saturday June 3 and Sunday June 4. The festival will feature the established formula of nationally and internationally known artists and local Northwest performers.
As more information, like artists and times, becomes available, it will be announced here and on Facebook. We're looking forward to another successful event!
Conceived as a destination event rather than just another gig, Seaprog invites music lovers to spend a weekend enjoying stimulating and intelligent music and visiting the many fine restaurants, bars, and shops in Columbia City.
One great thing about the Columbia City Theater is that it has a front room that not only serves food and drink, but can host musical performances as well. We'll be taking advantage of this fact by presenting some solo/duo acts there between sets on the mainstage. Wouldn't want you to get bored! In 2013, we presented sets from Amy Denio, Bill Horist, and Austenitic. 2014 brought us The Pornadoes, Jim Bartz, and more.
We seem to have survived another weekend packed with amazing music and great friends both new and old. Seaprog 2017 is right up there with the best Seaprogs ever. So many wonderful performances!
The Central Committee offers heartfelt thanks to all of the musicians, volunteers, attendees, and the staff and management of the Columbia City Theater and the Royal Room. Our official photographer is hard at work processing all of the images, and when they're ready we'll put up a gallery of the best ones.

The time is upon us. After lots of work, scrambling to deal with changing circumstances, and miles traveled, Seaprog 2017 is starting tonight. Join us at the Royal Room for four great bands: Moon Letters, Pinto Wagonfire, Omni, and Paraesthesia. You can even have a good meal while you're there.
Then tomorrow we kick off two days of excellent music at the Columbia City Theater, featuring more artists than ever before. We've filled every available hour both on the main stage and in the front room. Just look at the schedule page — just for a moment, then make arrangements to be there.

The Central Committee has been busy getting ducks into rows and appropriate dots and crosses on letters. We've asked the wonderful Nat Damm to design our poster this year, and we're pretty happy with the results.
And check out the schedule page, where all the set times are now posted. We've still got a few things to come for the front room, so don't think this is all there is. As if it wasn't already an amazing lineup.
