The Bushwick Book Club Seattle delivers literature, music, and songwriting to the Seattle community while building the next generation of musicians and readers!
This group of musicians is dedicated to sharing their combined passion for both music and reading with the Seattle community and beyond. With each performance, a book is chosen which is read by our talented Bushwick artists who then write original music inspired by the book they just read. The audience is encouraged to read the featured book and participate in the events as well. By producing these unique, one of a kind musical literary events, BBCS hopes to increase awareness in literature and song writing, while at the same time remind people (young and old) that reading can and should be a regular part of their daily lives.

"As an organization centered around filtering art though experience, we must honor and witness the real pain and trauma in our midst. The recent killings of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and George Floyd highlight the need for systemic change to address racial injustice. Black Lives Matter, and Bushwick Northwest stands committed to being an anti-racist body that features a diversity of voices and confronts institutional racism."
