‘Burien Man’ arts fest SeaCompression coming to Burien this Saturday night


From our sister site The B-Town Blog:

SeaCompression – an arts-centric fundraiser festival sometimes called ‘Burien Man’ – is returning to Burien this Saturday, Oct. 14, from 4 p.m. – Midnight.

This year’s event will be FREE, all ages/kid-friendly (yet with a 21+ area), and will be held on SW 151st Street between 6th and 8th Ave SW (map below).

This great arts fest had previously been held at the Burien Interim Art Space (B/IAS), in the lot where The Maverick apartments are now located on SW 150th and 5th Ave SW, so in a way it’s returning to its home. The last iteration of this event in Burien was in 2012 (read our previous coverage here).

Those wacky Kids behind B/IAS and Night of 1000 Pumpkins – Kathy Justin and Dane Johnson, along with Co-Producers Cameron Sherman, Kirsten Mohan and Ben Tramposh and a whole troupe of volunteers – are bringing back Ignition Northwest’s annual fundraiser SeaCompression.

This year it’ll be FREE to the public and kid friendly (well mostly kid friendly), and will include a Giant Monkey bus, a Submarine and a shoe that belches, along with plenty of fire, plenty of interactive art and live performances.

The event will also feature a ticketed 21 and over area with dancing, live bands, beer garden and plenty of art, artists and all the shenanigans you expect from the INW Crew.

Here’s a new map:
