About the Show
Set in the thriving contemporary music scene of Seattle, this musical series invites viewers to tag along with the hottest up-and-coming bands for a wild weekend as they work, sweat, perform, and party in Seattle’s clubs, bars, after hours speak easies and crash pads.
Both a long-form rock musical and 12-part series, $5 Cover Seattle captures the color, flavor and texture of Seattle's real nightlife — as well as the hairy-tongued mornings after. With all the musicians playing themselves in stories drawn from their actual lives, the show emphasizes the authentic intimacy of a living, breathing musical community, as well as a sweet, deadpan sense of humor.
Season 2, Seattle is directed by Lynn Shelton, the award-winning filmmaker, who's a longtime fixture of the Northwest-Pacific film and music scene and the director of the 2009 indie comedy, "Humpday" which premiered to critical acclaim at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival. "The idea is that it’s a way to experience a particular city through the city’s music that’s happening now. That’s what’s so cool about it," she recently said.
Focusing on an eclectic group of musicians, $5 Cover centers on 13 bands in the second season. The disparate group of musicians includes the electro-rapping duo THEESatisfaction, the punk band Whiskey Tango, discordant indie rock trio The Lights, the boogie rock and woodsy psychedelia of The Moondoggies, ambient experimental instrumental combo Corespondents, the outré electronic hip-hop group Champagne, Champagne, singer-songwriter Sean Nelson, formerly of the Seattle groups Harvey Danger and The Long Winters, the frantic pop duo of the Tea Cozies and many, many more. Seattle might have been known for grunge in the '90s, but the scene has exploded with several different musical flavors, all of which are covered in the Seattle edition.
