Who you callin’ superfan?

We imaginary girls have long been self-professed superfans (and enthusiastically documented other music lovers’ evidence of superfan-dom. As far as we’re concerned, you just haven’t lived until you’ve worshipped at the music altar of your favorite band.

And what luck! Two of the bands we’ve been stalking… erm, we mean, super-fanning for years now are both playing shows in Seattle next week: one show for the kids (start ‘em young!) and one show for the grownups (mind yer step!).

Saturday, February 17, 11am and 1:30 pm: Saturday Family Concerts: Math & Physics Club and Friends
Town Hall’s Saturday morning concert series for children 5-10 and their parents continues with a very special concert by Seattle indie favorites, Math & Physics Club, who will be joined by members of Central Services and Bad Dream, Good Breakfast. Parents, listen up: if you don’t talk to your kids about superfan-dom, someone else will. So you’d better prepare your wee ones for the wave of gentle indie-pop delight that is Math and Physics Club. The band tells us they’ve prepared a slew of original kid-friendly songs (the “Comma Song” is particularly awesome, thank you, Saundrah!), and the event will integrate math problems and science experiments. Fun for kids (and kids at heart!).

Presented by 90.3 FM KEXP and ParentMap. Free for kids 12 and under/$5 for adults. Tickets required for all attendees. Adults not admitted without children. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets available at www.brownpapertickets.com or 800/838-3006. Each concert lasts one hour.

Wednesday, February 21: The Thermals/Helvetia/Speaker Speaker {Chop Suey}
The Thermals-strip to your underwear.jpg

If we imaginary girls have ever been super fans – and we certainly have – then The Thermals have bore the wrath of our adorations for years. We could point you to all the articles we written about them over the years, slathering them with lavish praise, but then they might reinstate our imaginary restraining order. And that, dear readers, would be a pity – as THE THERMALS ARE COMING TO SEATTLE ON WEDNESDAY!!!!!!

There are no excuses to miss this show. The Thermals pack a wallop of a power-pop trio punch live, and have been known to remove articles of clothing mid-set. With the release of their third record, The Body, The Blood, The Machine, the Thermals took their lo-fi sensibilities and powerful vocals to another level, tackling a semi-fictional religious totalitarian government with the greatest theme record since um, Styx Mister Roboto. And by that we mean, really, the best one ever. But nevermind that. Wait till you see what Liz does when Hutch proclaims, “Strip to Your Underwear!” midway through “An Ear for Baby.” There’s no telling what, except that Liz might take yet another tumble on those phantom stairs at Chop Suey. Call it the Hutch-effect {that’s what she said!}


Fuckin’ A!

    I’m all atwitter with excitement about the Thermals show on Wednesday, too. But they’re an indie-pop quartet now, right?
