Parting is always such sweet sorrow, but saying goodbye is always easier when it involves two incredible going-away rock shows. So it’s with great anticipation and heavy imaginary hearts that we say goodbye to a long-time favorite Seattle band, The Divorce:

Sat, 6/30
The Divorce {final show}/Sirens Sister/Crosstide, Crocodile {late}
The Divorce/With Friends Like These/Crosstide, Crocodile {5pm}

Usually the end of June isn’t so bad. With 4th of July around the corner, the final days of June bring excitement of the impending celebratory explosives and deviled eggs. This year June 30th is going to bring some tears thanks to the Divorce who have claimed the night will be their final two shows of all time. The good news is that before they call it quits they will knock the Crocodile upside down with TWO INCREDIBLE shows. The band, who have grown from a trio to a quartet of striking young men over the course of their bandhood, have dashing rockstar personas that has given Seattle photographers as much great material as music fans. Our hope is that they will play “The Academy” and “Red Coats” ten times over the course of the night.

We also hope that they take a tip from other notable Seattle bands who find having multiple ‘final shows’ a common practice (*ahem*, Posies).

And a little reminder that in just ONE WEEK we imaginary ones are also hosting two shows to celebrate our fifth birthdays:

  • A 21+ show on Friday night July 6th at the Crocodile, and…
    An all-ages show on Saturday night July 7th at Vera.

Both nights will celebrate the release of the new BOAT CD as well as Portland’s The Shaky Hands. Get the full lineup and show details, and we hope to see you all there!

rock on with your bad selves,
three imaginary girls
