Concerts at the Mural Preview: Wayfinders, Absolute Monarchs, & Love Battery tonight!

Join us tonight for the third free show in the 2012 Concert at the Mural series, presented by KEXP and Seattle Center, featuring three local groups known for their distinctly familiar sounds.

Opening the show is the legendary 90’s Seattle grunge group Love Battery. Along with an expansive history of incredibly influential musicians, including Dan Peters of Mudhoney and Jason Finn of The Presidents Of The United States Of America, Love Battery is the embodiment of the classic sound that propelled Seattle into the forefront of the national music scene twenty years ago, returning to the grungy underbelly of distorted guitars and pounding rhythms. Check out their song “Out of Focus” below:

Joining them on stage is the up-and-coming and KEXP favorite Absolute Monarchs. Combining an abrasively raw sound with deceptively intricate songwriting, Absolute Monarchs are a good reminder why we loved bands like The Pixies and Jesus Lizard and that meaty guitars and strained vocals have a definite place in this decade as well. Check out Absolute Monarchs live at Capitol Hill Block Party below:

Headlining tomorrow’s performance is Wayfinders, a self-described hippie four piece from Seattle whose shows are a “heavy dude scene where the girls always find their way right up front to dance.” These retro rockers do their part to bring timeless jams to the modern day with a familiar sound that’s too fresh to sound used or tired. Check out tracks from their self-titled album below:
