Three Imaginary Girls are rockin the vote

As August 18th nears and the primaries grow ever closer, the Three Imaginary Girls encourage everyone to do their civic duty AND shake that booty. Make sure to mail in those primary ballots on time. Make P-Diddy proud! You know he’s watching you from afar with a giant white “Vote or Die” t-shirt… While you’re waiting for those white knuckled tight-squeeze election results, use your vote to chose one of the following recommended shows to elect your mayor of Seattle Rock City.

8/14/09: Reflection Eternal/Slum Village/Slaughterhouse/Raekwon/ Supernatural, Showbox — This is going to be an incredibly eclectic night of hip hop. Raekwon the Chef will be a lone killa bee on the swarm, but that’s not to say he won’t bring the sting! A member of Wu Tang Clan STILL ain’t nothin to f#$k with!

8/15/09: Warning: Danger, Jaguar Paw, Duvallstar, Funhouse – Warning: Danger is what would have happened if Black Flag were from the Pacific Northwest. The result is wild. The lead singer has performed shows in the past wearing protective gear for beekeepers. If this isn’t enough to entertain you on a Saturday night, there’s no hope for you!

8/17/09: Michael Roe, The Crocodile — Touring on the breathtaking We All Gonna Face the Rising Sun, Roe’s solo efforts will rock the Crock. He brings acoustic rock and old gospel together to create a toe tappin, handclappin, masterpiece.

8/18/09: The Cave Singers, Easy Street in-store {7pm, Queen Anne} — Easy Street is offering you the chance to see indie royalty up close and personal. You can pick up that Falco CD you’ve been eyeballing too. No one’s watching!

8/19/09: Pete Yorn, Showbox – Touring on new album Back and Fourth, Yorn is bringing it with the indie-dreamboatness. His sound is perfect for as intimate and cozy a place as the Showbox. He’s doing 2 shows, so if you miss 8/19, or just can’t wait to see him again, he’ll be playing on 8/20 as well.

8/20/09: “Love No Love NW Compilation Release” — Your Heart Breaks/Gina Young/Carrie Cark & The Lonesome Lovers/Pufferfish/Sage Redman/Andrea Wittgens/Central Services, Triple Door- This is a benefit show for local non-profit New Beginnings. Their mission is to “provide shelter, advocacy and support for battered women and their children; and to change attitudes and social institutions that foster and perpetuate violence.” 100% of the album sales will go to support this important work.

8/21/09: The Flaming Lips, Marymoor Park — Anyone who knows anything knows this is going to be a giant party! Do you like robots, glitter, and giant bunnies? Do you like songs about science and love? If so, this is the band for you!

Go rock your vote and your socks off! In the profound words of Chris Farley in Black Sheep by way of the fast recuperating Beastie Boys “You gotta fight for your right to vote!”

See you at the polls (the Imaginary ones, since we’re mailing em in)
