Death Cab for Cutie and ODESZA, two bands comprised of Western alumni, are co-headlining a special benefit concert at Civic Stadium in Bellingham on May 18.

The concert, called Double Major, will also feature artists chong the nomad, Robotaki, and LipStitch. Tickets go on pre-sale Tuesday, March 5 at 10 a.m., and additional tickets will go on sale March 8.

Proceeds from the show will go to Western’s Alumni Association Scholarship Endowment, according to the Double Major website.

“Bellingham has always held a special place for both of us. We met at WWU and started ODESZA there. We are super excited to come back to the place where it all started and do a special benefit show with our friends and fellow alumni!” ODESZA tweeted, which Death Cab for Cutie later retweeted.

The football goal posts at Civic Stadium will be moved to make room for a stage for the concert, according to ODESZA’s twitter.

Both bands have expressed their excitement for the event, and the Bellingham community shares that excitement, according to the Double Major facebook event. As of March 1, about 1,100 people said they were going to the concert and about 7,900 people said they were interested, according to the Facebook event page.

“Bellingham and WWU is where it all began. We have so many memories of house shows, The Showoff Gallery, The 3B, Red Square and KUGS, all places we met friends and found our community. All places vital to the start of our band,” Death Cab for Cutie tweeted.

The band went on to say how they connected with the members of ODESZA over their similar humble beginnings in Bellingham, according to their twitter.

“It was only natural that we thought ‘let’s play a show together and celebrate our starts,’” Death Cab for Cutie tweeted.
