Hello Dear Readers,
Last night I went into the studio to record some Meyercord tacks. It went well, but I was done with music for the day when it was done. Here are the shows that look good to me:
Bar Bar is having a show with Pancake Breakfast and Porches. Bunk Bar has been having some good shows lately. I have not been to any of them because most of them start at 10 which is a little late for my preferences. Pancake Breakfast is to my preferences. There are a lot of them and they are a lot of fun to see. They get down. They will make you get down. I think you have to understand. Porches play gorgeous experimental folk. There are a lot of strings and a lot of group vocals mixed with leader Alan Smith's breathy vocals. I really like it. The show is FREE and starts at 10 PM.
Ella Street is having a show with The We Spilled Milk and Spillway (Seattle). The We Spilled Milk is a band that I want to see. Their music is of the rock variety but what I notice and like immediately is the vocals. They are dramatic in a way that you either love or hate. Since I am writing about it, you know which camp I am in. Spill way is a band that I ma not familiar with, but it seems to be indie rock with interesting dynamic shifts and a yelping front man somewhere between les savvy fav and modest mouse. This show is FREE and starts at 9 PM.
Laughing Horse Books is having a show with Zoo Girl, Your Rival, Grandfather (Chico), and Hail the Sun. Zoo Girl play music that I have a very soft spot for. I am not going to say emo. But I know that it reminds me of being in college and listening to early cursive or something like that. Just saying. Your Rival seems like a pop band. Grandfather is a post-hardcore progressive band and therefore have a lot of cool musical parts. It gets kinda nutty. Hail the Sun call themselves a "post-progrock group" in their bio. I can see that. They also have a lot of cool stuff happening. It gets weird. The ALL AGES show is $5 and starts at 8 PM.
If you see me at either of these shows please say, "Hi".
Zoo Girl plays at Laughing Horse Books tonight.
