Bands: VIPER CREEK CLUB and THE REDWOOD PLAN
Gorilla members have put together a benefit show to raise funds for the club featuring local bands VIPER CREEK CLUB and THE REDWOOD PLAN and Gorilla DJs Alligator Sweater and Gin & Tonic! This is an early show on a Friday night, 7pm doors – done by 10:30. Ticket proceeds go directly to GFC, so we can continue giving back to the community and supporting our Sounders. For tickets and band info, please visit our website
Wanna help us sell tickets for the event?Contact GFC. Anyone who sells the goal of 5 tickets to the GFC Benefit show, gets entered in a drawing to win a free GFC Zipup Hoodie that we are making for the special benefit.
Every year, GFC members run for Sounders FC Alliance Council.
The council works hard to represent supporters and fans in meeting with the Sounders front office to discuss issues of importance to us all as Sounders fans. There are numerous issues that directly affect Gorilla FC, so it’s important we use our votes to get GFC on council.
It takes 25 votes from other Sounders season ticket holders to get on council. You can vote at: https://eballot4.votenet.com/seattlesoccer/login.cfm by entering your email and account number on any computer or device (like Civ’s Ipad). You can get your account number from your Sounders ticket rep if needed.
The current Gorilla FC candidates are Cameron Collins and Jeff Randel. Please vote for one of them.
If your last name begins with A-M, please vote for Cameron Collins. Cameron needs 15 more votes.
If your last name begins with N-Z, please vote for Jeff Randel. He needs 21 more.
They are now just around the corner and Sept 15 will be here sooner than later. The last bus was sold out, so get booked on them now via the Gorilla FC online store.

Rain City Pariah
For the first time ever, Gorilla FC has announced an addition our family. Rain City Pariah Football Collective (RCP) is a Seattle Sounders FC Supporters Collective and Gorilla FC subgroup dedicated to the Arts. The mission of Rain City Pariah is twofold. First, it is to celebrate the rich history of the Arts in Seattle by creating a subgroup of GFC that both follows the credo and code of GFC and incorporates those from the Arts communities (or fans of the Arts communities) into GFC. Second, RCP will seek to support the local Arts Organizations, especially those that provide arts opportunities for children.
