The Experience Music Project will celebrate its first anniversary with a June 19-23 concert series in the interactive Seattle museum's intimate Sky Church theatre. Dubbed "A Musical Odyssey," the event will present artists from each of the past five decades of popular music.

The line-up will feature Little Richard and Little Bill & the Blue Notes (June 19); Iron Butterfly, Big Brother & the Holding Company, Quicksilver Messenger Service, and the Doors' Ray Manzarek (June 20); Television and Joel RL Phelps & the Downer Trio (June 21); Joan Jett & the Blackhearts and the Donnas (June 22); and Public Enemy and Source of Labor (June 23). Tickets for all shows -- priced at $12 for EMP members and $22 for the general public -- are on sale at the EMP box office (877-I-LISTEN).

Since opening to the public on June 23, 2000, the EMP has presented more than 200 live concerts, programs centering on artists and musical genres, as well as an exhibit on the legendary Memphis label Sun Records, and the recently launched reggae exhibit, "Island Revolution."
