Slow Skate celebrates new album at CCT

This Friday, April 8 at 9pm.

We're honored to be hosting the album release party for Slow Skate, one of Seattle's finest. Get your tickets.

Slow Skate is the project of Seattle married couple Caitlin Sherman and Jason Goessl. Reverb soaked vocals, vintage keyboards, antique zithers, swooning guitar lines and retro drum machines illustrate a sort of musical noir. Their performances have an intense dynamic range of whispers and growls with Sherman's dark, dreamy songs as a centerpiece. This is Slow Skate's third full-length album.
