New entertainment series will kick off May 10 at Angle Lake Light Rail Station


A new summer-long entertainment series will kick off at the Sound Transit Angle Lake Light Rail Station Plaza, premiering Wednesday, May 10, with the first of five performances to be held on the second Wednesday of each month through September.

The acts will perform on the Sound Transit Angle Lake Light Rail Station Plaza beginning at 5:30 p.m. The plaza is located at South 200th, one block west of International Boulevard.

The acts include a diverse mix of music, magic and comedy, and marks the first phase of what will become regular community activities on the new plaza. The public space was created as an important piece of the overall station design to give the community another venue for events and programs. The performance on the 10th will be by the Seattle Steel Pan Project which is dedicated to providing opportunities for women and girls in music through arts education.

Lawrence Ellis, the City’s Community Programs and Services Director commented that: “This entertainment series adds another feature to the City’s current slate of community activities and entertainment, including Music in the Park, the Fourth of July Celebration and the Shakespeare series.” He added: “We are pleased to work with Sound Transit to make the plaza a great new amenity for the region.”

King County Councilmember and Sound Transit Boardmember Dave Upthegrove also commented that: “We’re happy that the collaboration between Sound Transit and the City of SeaTac has created a community gathering place for this series and many other activities that bring the new station area to life.”

    I Hope they have the public restrooms open that the Citizens, Council, and staff worked so hard to get and that have never opened and remain shuttered at the station.
