No genre is holding a monopoly over this week’s calendar, which contains some rock, rap, and pop all in the mix. The local music scene is looking pretty vibrant these days, with viable bands playing something for everyone, no matter your preference.
Friday, 11/23: Hungry Pines (Rock) @ Wild Rose 9p & $5
Two guys and two girls — sound like the formula for ABBA? Quite the opposite; these four Seattlites will rock you more Led Zeppelin style than Swedish Pop. Catch them tonight at the infamous Capitol Hill lesbian bar Wild Rose with Panda and Angel.
Saturday, 11/24: Das Llamas (Rock/Indie) @ Neumo’s 8p & $5
Tonight is basically a pinnacle of great Seattle music. Besides Das Llamas, who will most likely amaze you, Feral Children are also on this bill, who are definitely one of THE best live shows you can catch in town. Rounding out the KEXP-sponsored bill are Wierdlords and The Pharmacy.
Sunday, 11/25: Cancer Rising (Rap/Hip-hop) @ Chop Suey 8p & $8
It is going to be nothing but a party at Chop Suey tonight, with the celebration of Cancer Rising’s CD release. Their second full length is sure to explode! If you haven’t heard the new album, it’s nine tracks that will help you “Get Down, Get Into It.” Hurry over to the club early, as the first 100 will receive a FREE copy. This show will be a great representation of great Seattle hip-hop and rock, with openers The Girls, Dyme Def, and The Valley. Forget it’s a Sunday night, and come dance your ass off like it’s Saturday.
Wednesday, 11/28: The Elephants (Indie-Pop) @ The Crocodile 9p & $6
Everyday they bring you music news and reviews at their site, every month or so they present a line-up of bands they’re excited about and hope you’ll be too. Three Imaginary Girls present Tacoma band The Elephants, a fun pop band whose happy quirks are bound to bring a smile to your face.
Thursday, 11/29: These Arms Are Snakes (Rock) @ Neumos 8p & Free
There are two things in the world I can’t argue with when given to me for free: food and These Arms are Snakes. For the second time in barely two months, those local boys are giving us yet another free show. For all the nay-sayers out there who grumble that no one moves in Seattle, a TAAS show has never failed to prove that some local bands do have fans who rock out as hard as they can. They opened for ISIS two weeks ago, catch them tonight taking the main spot with Portugal.The Man and Russian Circles opening.
