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
