The 10th annual Layne Staley tribute will be held this August in Seattle.
The five-day tribute will pay homage to the music of ALICE IN CHAINS and MAD SEASON, plus the entire Seattle grunge scene of the '90s will be honored.
There will be a memorial gathering by the historic Space Needle on August 22, for Layne Staley's birthday. There will be a candlelight vigil and quiet time, then acoustic performances by any musicians are welcome.
Friday, August 24, the Backstage Bar & Grill will be hosting an evening of Seattle grunge featuring JAR OF FLIES (ALICE IN CHAINS and MAD SEASON tribute) and OUTSHINED (SOUNDGARDEN and TEMPLE OF THE DOG tribute).
Saturday, August 25 at the Crocodile, live music from VITALOGY (PEARL JAM tribute,) followed by OUTSHINED (SOUNDGARDEN and TEMPLE OF THE DOG tribute) with JAR OF FLIES (ALICE IN CHAINS and MAD SEASON tribute) headlining.
The fifth and final show will be held Sunday, August 26 at the Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Seattle. This will be a very special end to the week with an entirely acoustic performance by all three tribute acts.
Fans can contribute to the Layne Staley Memorial Fund, and help others in need of recovery.
