How about an OVERflowing week of local goodies? Seattle music fans, Christmas has come early…
Friday Nov 30: The Cave Singers @ The Crocodile $10 & 9p
After creating enormous buzz here in their hometown, The Cave Singers took like nomads and trekked their folk sounds across the states for in-store appearances. Tonight they’ve returned, for a KEXP endorsed show at the Crocodile. Fleet Foxes and Port O’Brien are opening for this hell of a show.
Also Friday: Ghost Gallery Presents: Photography by Kazutaka Nomura @ Solo Bar FREE & 8p
Before heading to the Crocodile, why not head up the street to lower Queen Anne to peruse the latest showing featured by Ghost Gallery, photography by Kazutaka Nomura. You’ll probably recognize him more as the musician PWRFL Power, but he’s trying his hand as an artist. If you’ve seen Kaz around town, you’ll have probably noticed his camera in hand, meaning the resulting portfolio may include anything or anyone!
Saturday Dec 1st: The Thermals @ Neumo’s $12 & 8p & All-Ages
Portland post punkers The Thermals are back to entertain their northern neighbors. Come have fun singing along with the cute
three-piece. Besides, the show gets even better with Arthur and Yu and The Coconut Coolouts topping it off. For the latter, put on your banana suit and rock with your peel out.
Also Saturday: The Last Slice of Butter @ see band website Free (donation suggested) & 8p & All-Ages
Hungry for some underground punk instead? Look for this show in its hidden locale for Seattle duo the Last Slice of Butter, “crushing souls” with a bass and drum kit. They have had quite the busy year, with a new album and West coast tour. DIY favorites Talbot Tagora open.
Tuesday Dec 4th: Math and Physics Club @ Neumo’s $12 & 8p & All-Ages
You caught them live on-air a few weeks back here at KEXP, now see them live with Voxtrot and Tullycraft. Fulfill your indie pop sweet tooth with this show like sucrose for your ears.
Wednesday Dec 5th: U.S.E. @ Neumo’s FREE & 8p
U.S.E. practices the old adage, “Distance makes the heart grow fonder,” treating their fans to very few and far between shows these days. Their other projects have taken precedence, but they haven’t forgotten the parties they catalyze. And tonight’s at Neumo’s is free as well. Siberian and Kay Kay & His Weathered Underground will be opening; make it out early to not only beat the line, to also catch a local jam-packed night.
Thursday Dec 6th: Dolour @ the Crocodile $6 & 9p
Tonight, expanding from the typical visual displays hosted, Ghost Gallery will be mixing music and images together to celebrate the 1st anniversary of the art curator’s efforts. Dolour, Palmer AK, and the Ghost of Kyle Bradford, all local bands, will be bringing the art to your ears while for your eyes Seattle photography outlet Blush Photo showcase projected wintry photography behind them.
