There is a parking garage literally RIGHT next to the venue. I don't recall the cost sadly (average for the area I think), but I will say it was very well guarded and if you do us it, remember to take your ticket with you as it is your key for elevator use! Also Parking technically begins on the 3rd level.

Baka Beyond was high energy, great music and fun to watch. They had people literally dancing in the aisles.

Description

Since the release of the groundbreaking Spirit of the Forest in 1993 Baka Beyond has evolved into a dynamic, multi-cultural live show which has played all over the world. From Brazil to Alaska, Norway to Spain, audiences have been enthralled by haunting Celtic harmony singing, drawn into the Cameroon rainforest by traditional forest singing (Yelli), and danced their socks off to irresistible African rhythms.

Based in UK, Baka Beyond will bring the Spirit of the Forest to Seattle. Martin Cradick, Su Hart and Clyde Kramer have all spent time living and playing music with the Baka Pygmies in their rainforest home, while Ayodele Scott brings the rhythms and colour of Sierra Leone into the mix. Breton fiddler, Paddy Le Mercier’s was due to be playing, but he has unfortunately damaged his bowing arm in an accident and cannot play for the time being so we are very pleased that top US fiddler, Jeremy Kittle has stepped in to fill his shoes.

Baka Beyond has headlined many festivals such as Edmonton in Canada to 20,000 people, but they still love the intimacy of playing theatres and Art Centres. They have played one of the world’s biggest music festivals, Glastonbury, a total of 16 times! Every gig has a sense of fun that turns a concert into an uplifting, inclusive party.

Baka Beyond was founded by Martin Cradick (co-founder of Outback) in 1990 after a 3 month visit to Cameroon with singer wife Su Hart. There they began a lifelong musical friendship with a group of Baka Pygmy hunter-gatherers deep in the rain forest. The trip inspired the award winning debut album Spirit of the Forest" in 1993, which helped to define the term “world music” and pushed Baka Beyond into worldwide recognition.
