Seattle station KNDD has been staging its Deck the Hall Ball for more than 20 years as a well-stocked concert marathon for faithful listeners. This year’s holiday-themed concert also provided bands with a chance to thank the station, as well as fans, for their support.

Seattle’s annual citywide electronic-music event will celebrate its 10th anniversary next week as it packs 11 local venues with more than 130 artists and DJs from all over the world over the course of five days.
