Tonight in Seattle (9/08): F***ed Up, Pierced Arrows, Future Islands, Eternal Summers, The Redwood Plan, and morePosted by Mark Naborczyk
Tonight in Seattle: Saturday September 8th
If everybody’s working for the weekend then be glad you worked so hard this past week because tonight, Seattle is packed with aural rewards.
This show will be the closest thing to controlled chaos you’re going to experience. F***ed Up, Lightning Bolt and Ceremony all have a reputation for their wild and highly energetic stage shows. You’re going to get rocked. You’re going to drown in noise. Judging by previous F***ed Up shows you may even leave with a few battle wounds. If you like being eaten alive by rock – at ten bucks it’s kind of hard to pass up such an adrenaline drenched evening.
Do Pierced Arrows really need an introduction in this town? Rising up from the ashes of Dead Moon comes one of the Northwest’s greatest definitions of raw garage rock. They’re veterans of the scene and put on one of the best rock performances I’ve seen. Opening are The Dt’s, this Washington band draws heavily on 70’s hard rock, mixing in just enough soul swagger to keep you groovin’.
Future Islands are taking over Neumos with their heart broken yawps, surging bass lines and enough synth to shake you all night long. Gardens & Villa will leave you entranced with their intricate flute laced electro-pop and Seattle’s own Vox Mod will start the night off making sure everyone’s synched in and dancing to the same beat.
Long live girl fronted lo-fi fuzz rock! Let Eternal Summers and Bleeding Rainbow wash over you with their loud, dreamily noisy rhythms.
Come get your dance on at Wild Rose’s monthly, “Brush Off”! Tonight it’s featuring the seductive high energy dance sounds of The Redwood Plan and Clutch Douglass!
Are you done with this heat? Do you wish it was autumn already? The Croc is hosting a very solid roots-tinged show tonight to help usher in the changing of seasons with Seattle’s own The Horde and the Harem and Western Haunts (formerly silOHs) who are also celebrating their EP release tonight.
