The word “filthy” has multiple meanings—nasty, obscene, grimy, or even wealthy, as in FILTHY RICH. On New Year’s Eve, The Showbox and Seattle’s Ayron Jones, with Asterhouse and King Youngblood’s (KYB) help, will bring their own expression of the word by throwing what they call a “Filthy New Year’s Jam” at Showbox at the Market.

Jones will close out the year after a tour promoting his new album, Chronicles Of The Kid. In the ten years since his first studio album Dream was released, he’s opened for the likes of B.B. King, Guns N’ Roses, Janelle Monae, and The Rolling Stones, proving that Seattle’s Black rock legacy is alive. Jones mingles genres in his music, crediting rock, rhythm, and blues roots. (His new song “Blood in the Water” starts with his voice belting a ballad like an ’80s rock star, see below.) Opening for Jones is another local Black rocker, Cameron Lavi-Jones of King Youngblood, a band that brings a kind of grit that swallows you whole.
