Back in 1994, a new club hit Capitol Hill called Moe’s Mo’Roc’N Café. It re-opened in 2004 as Neumos Crystal Ball Reading Room (pronounced "new-Moe's," get it?). And for the next week of 2014, Seattle celebrates the 10th and 20th year anniversaries of these venues with eight-rockin'-days of local music, this Thursday, January 9th through Thursday, January 16th.Principal owner Jerry Everard told the Seattle Times that Moe's was previously a thrift shop that he and his partners transformed into the celebrated venue. "When it opened, the club was in the middle of nowhere," he explained. "Now it’s at the epicenter of that district. But only because it played a significant role in creating an epicenter.”

Come celebrate this Seattle institution all week long with over a dozen local bands on stage. Tickets are on sale now for $15 a show, or two shows for $20, here.

Thursday 1/9: Telekinesis w/ Wild Ones • Friday 1/10: The Posies playing Frosting on the Beater and more with the original lineup! w/ Alcohol Funnycar, Rusty Willoughby, Popsickle • Saturday 1/11: Goodness w/ These Streets (with Selene Vigil from 7 Year Bitch), Lucky Me • Sunday 1/12: Truly w/ Bali Girls, Sage, Hyperlung• Monday 1/13: Hey Marseilles w/ Cataldo• Wednesday 1/15: The Thermals• Thursday 1/16: Brent Amaker and the Rodeo
