Local Live Music Television Program Celebrates 200th Episode

SEATTLE, WA  -  Friday, March 22nd brings a little bit of local music history with the 200th episode of 29 Live, a popular live broadcast music television program produced by Rob Hursh through Seattle Community Access Network (SCAN). The festivities kick-off at 8 p.m. on AT&T Cable Channel 29/77 with "29 Live: Tasty Clips" a retrospective featuring a full hour of the best performances from 29 Live. The live show follows in its regular time slot at 9 p.m. with local rockers The SuperChamps! taking the stage for this special edition of the program. Both programs will be shown in the Experience Music Project's Liquid Lounge.
29 Live has been providing a live music television showcase for local, regional and touring artists since 1995 and reaches over 500,000 households in the Seattle and Tacoma areas. The program is a do-it-yourself effort with an all-volunteer crew. More about 29 Live including a list of all the bands that have performed on the show can be found at www.whalebonepro.com.

Also on Friday night March 22nd, Experience Music Project will commemorate the local music milestone by showing both "29 Live: Tasty Clips" and the 200th episode (via tape delay) on the wide TV screens in the museum's Liquid Lounge. The programs will be played before and between sets of a live performance in the lounge by local favorite, Carrie Akre and her band.
