The Evergreen Speech & Hearing Clinic will host a concert May 17 designed to be both “fun, but also safe,” at the Kirkland Teen Union Building.

The night will bring bands Portugal The Man, Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground, and Man Down Medic to a “turned down” venue.

“On average a concert reaches 110-130 decibels,” said Evergreen Doctor of Audiology Tom Norwood. “At this level you might as well be blasting the tunes of a chain saw or small firecrackers into your ear.”

The sound level at the concert will be kept at 100 decibels or lower. Concert attendees will also be given earplugs at the door that will further reduce the sound level by 20 decibels.

All proceeds from the door and raffles will go toward the purchase of a limiter and new sound equipment for the Kirkland Teen Union Building venue. The goal is safer-listening concerts.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Tickets, $8, are available at the door. Visit www.everhear.com/bhsm to learn more.
