Seattle Soundbite 2009: It’s only rock and roll, but you’ll like it

Put this date on your calendar: Thursday, March 19. Place? the Showbox SoDo. Time: 6 p.m. Reason: Seattle Soundbite 2009 — your chance to rock and roll (with six Seattle bands), eat “street-style” food (from 13 Seattle restaurants) and watch local musicians prove that restaurants really are hotbeds for creative-types.

Sub Pop soundmeisters The Helio Sequence will headline the show, and the local talent — whose audition tapes bought them a shot at Soundbite — features bands with at least one member working in Seattle’s food-service industry. Among them: Bird Show of North America, Sue Quigley, Doctor Doctor, Puget Sound System and Truce, with DJ Reflex keeping the joint jumping between sets.

Performers with “day jobs” in the resto-industry include musicians from Anthony’s Restaurants, Caffe Vita, Elliott’s Oyster Bar, Il Fornaio, Le Pichet, Palomino, Serafina, Tom Douglas Restaurants and (the late) Union Square Grill. You can sample their audio fare right here.

$15 buys a (21-and-over-only) ticket to the show, available at Ticketmaster (Caffe Vita outlets are offering Soundbite postcards with a $3 ticket-discount). You’ll pay $3 a “bite” while checking out the sounds. Bites come courtesy of Barrio, Cantinetta, Cremant, Oddfellows Cafe, Palace Kitchen, Pike Street Fish Fry, Purple Cafe & Wine Bar, Quinn’s, Ray’s Cafe, Red Door, Serafina, Tango and Via Tribunali.

Proceeds benefit The Vera Project, ProStart and the Seattle Chapter of the Washington Restaurant Association.
