Table & Chairs is pleased to announce that Hardcoretet has joined our numbers. We’re also thrilled by the increasing diversity of our catalogue that this latest addition represents. Fans of Operation ID and Chemical Clock are sure to gravitate to their unstoppable funkiness, and those of Neil Welch or WA will resonate with Hardcoretet’s sharp-angled melodies and many-dimensioned sound palette. That said, Hardcoretet will occupy a unique space within our roster, and we’ve chosen to represent the group based on the distinctiveness of their sound. After years of watching at the sidelines, we’re proud to finally be a part of Hardcoretet’s music-making career, and for them to be a part of ours.
Expect a performance from Hardcoretet on October 26th along with Operation ID at the Royal Room. Music starts at 8:30 and there’s no cover. Hope to see you there!

Table & Chairs is excited to have Sacramento guitarist, Ross Hammond, back in Seattle from June 22nd through the 24th. He will be performing at the T&C Median show on Saturday the 23rd and curating the Racer Sessions on Sunday the 24th.
Ross Hammond is a guitarist, composer, concert planner, promoter, festival organizer, music lover, family man, coffee enthusiast, and all-around-good-human, based out of Sacramento, California. In addition to hosting a weekly experimental music series called Nebraska Mondays at Luna’s Café, Ross also organizes the In the Flow Festival, which just completed its fifth successful year!
Ross has been kind enough to have T&C artists Operation ID, Bad Luck, and Neil Welch perform at Nebraska Mondays on their respective tours, and has been a huge proponent of our music and the Seattle music scene. He came up to Seattle last year with poet NSAA and their spoken-word duo Electropoetic Coffee, performed at our T&C house show and participated as curator for the Racer Sessions (click here to listen to his last session). We are excited to have him back and can’t wait to hear him perform again!
Welcome back, Ross!
