We don’t know how it happened, but the end of the year is upon us. Have you started making your Best of 2006 mix and casting your vote {See KEXP, Three Imaginary Girls among others}?

While we await what the smarty pants critics at Pitchfork and the Village Voice come up with, let’s all take a moment to jump for joy over the recent announcement of the PopMatters best indie-pop of the year (and the fact that Pacific Northwest bands make up 20% of their best of list)! We couldn’t agree more that the Math and Physics Club album (#1) is a gift from heaven. And the Casiotone for the Painfully Alone album (#4) is sweet bliss. Could it be that Seattle is on its way to becoming the new Sweden? Take that Gothenburg and your unusually high concentration of quality indie-pop!

Now, once you submit your votes, mark your calendar for a couple fine events happening this week…

Friday 12/15 – Thursday, 12/21: Danielson: A Family Movie {Northwest Film Forum}
Our friends at the NWFF are premiering this new documentary that follows eccentric musician and visual artist Daniel Smith as he leads his siblings and friends along an unusual path to indie-rock stardom as the Danielson Famile. A devout Christian from rural South Jersey, Smith started out gathering his brothers and sisters to help him perform his senior art thesis. Who would have known Daniel would soon be dressing up is family in homemade nurse uniforms, channeling the Holy Spirit, and becoming an indie icon? Our hope is that this will give us some good ideas on how to interact with family at this year’s holiday meal (Let’s dress up and sing art rock, Mom!).

Saturday 12/16: Tennis Pro/Hot One/School Of Rock {High Dive}
Seeing Tennis Pro play is less like watching a live show and more like going to a party. Staying true to their name, they come out on their trophy-adorned stage dressed in their Wimbledon whites ready to entertain as well as make some noise. The lyrics never disappoint, (make sure to listen closely for the Three Imaginary Girls theme song) their stage banter is always side-splitting, and their shtick is… well… fantashtick.

Mistletoe anyone?

High Rotation:
Kimya Dawson
Drew Victor {at the Tractor on 12/21}
Young Sportsmen {at the Comet on 12/28}
