Fremont Abbey Arts Center remains one of the city's biggest champions of local talent. In their own words, "Abbey Arts focuses on local music, contemporary dance, visual art, spoken word and storytelling," and show formats include multi-arts collaborative performances like The Round, a monthly showcase during which three songwriters share the stage with other musicians, a slam poet and a live painter. Other performances that come to the Abbey's intimate space--a stunning 100-year-old brick church building, originally St Paul's Lutheran Church--include close-up concerts, new dance performances set to live music, community gatherings like The Moth storytelling event (a must-see in our humble opinion), dance classes, plus a variety of workshops and "artistic life celebrations."
- Live Music: "Grab a meal before the show (or a drink after) at one of the neighborhoods many gems, like Roux (which boasts Cajun flair) or RockCreek (seafood and spirits)."
- Best for Live Music Because: At Fremont Abbey Arts Center, local talents take the stage in an intimate space with beautiful acoustics.
