NYC 1, Seattle 0

If you live in Seattle and have a vague interest in "music", it's likely you've met Ian Judd.  He's that breezy guy you saw at the last show, affable and well versed in many topics, most especially music...

Cairo has been fortunate enough to call Ian our booker for the last 3 years.  If you are reading this, you already know that he's done an amazing job exposing Seattle to new sounds, and doing what has always been Cairo's mission, by providing a great spot for touring bands to not only play, but make connections to our scene, and bands we love and represent here in Seattle.

We could say a lot of things about Ian (that hair! that Sade shirt!!), but really it comes down to this: For the last three years, Ian has helped us achieve and surpass Cairo's goal of creating a place for artists to gather, collaborate, coalesce, and be given a PROPER platform from which to present.  We've been honored to work with him, and also be apart of his growth as an artist and friend.  We're gonna miss this dude, but we can't wait to see what he does next.

Come down to the show tonight and wish him well, as he moves to New York November 1st!

What's next for Cairo Booking you ask?  We've got some great shows coming up, and "a crew" of new  music bookers.  More on that SOON!


Joel, Aimee, and the entire Cairo gang

Summer BLUEZZZ brings FALL reign

TIS WITH HEAVY HEART that we must announce the closure of our silkscreening studio to the public.  For the past 3 years we've been teaching folks of all ages the in's and out's of one of the simplest/accessible art forms known to humans...

This announcement comes after some careful consideration and much discussion, but ultimately the cost of running an open studio (replacing equipment due to constant use), when coupled with our own need of the space to satisfy our GROWING wholesale business, left us with no choice.

Individuals looking to use an open studio should look no further than the Vera Project, who were doing it long before us, and will be doing it long past the rest of em ... More info HERE.

In addition, this transition allows us to take on projects for hire, something we've been getting contacted about with greater and greater frequency.  For pricing and more information about getting high quality tees printed for you band, store, restaurant, chess club, prison camp, rodeo, or taco shack, please email us directly at
