Widowspeak played a set during our live broadcast series with KEXP during CMJ at Ace Hotel New York, and Matt Jay caught them after their show and pre-feast at The John Dory, who graciously supplied these unspeakably good Lobster Rolls and Bloody Marys. They’re now also offering reservations at the Chef’s Table for an unprecedented view into the workings of a very celebrated kitchen. See the menu here and reserve here.

Hear Widowspeak’s set at Ace on KEXP — search for the 7:30am show on 10/20.

Dum Dum Girls broadcasted a live set from the lobby at Ace New York today and sat down in the John Dory to have lunch and talk about their tour, their show-related rituals and their show tonight at The Mercury Lounge.

Catch the last day of broadcasts tomorrow in our lobby - WATERS, EMA, Cavemen and Atlas Sound play live sets and we’ll go out with a bang with DJ sets from two of our favorite independent record labels, Group Tightener and Domino.

Also, don’t forgot to pick up your very own free copy of Art Chantry’s custom, limited edition, hand-screened poster for the Ace x KEXP broadcasts — they’re in the gallery space along with an archival collection of his iconic posters for Seattle rock bands.

Thanks to the John Dory Oyster Bar for lunch and letting us hang out.

Brittney Bollay shot people and things at Ace Hotel New York during our live KEXP broadcasts. But everything turned out okay! Probably because she used our magical film.
