Tonight In Seattle (9/09): The Tallest Man On Earth, Chelsea Wolfe, Crypts and morePosted by Mark Naborczyk
It’s Sunday. Fight back against that alarm clock call of Monday morning with any of these great shows that are taking over tonight in Seattle.
Music is a hushed, intricate landscape for Kristian Matsson, known on stage and record as The Tallest Man On Earth. He’ll envelop you in calm with his musical styling that has been compared to Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie. Few musicians are able to make large venues seem like a living room show and that’s precisely what’s going to happen to the Moore this evening.
Chelsea Wolfe, with her hauntingly lush and brooding compositions, is headlining a stellar night of dark tones at Barboza tonight. Celebrating their album release, Crypts will bring their abrasive, apocalyptic industrial dance-rock and the always entertaining saxophone punk of Stickers will open up the night.
There’s a great preview of this show on our blog here.
The Racer Sessions at Café Racer are an almost holy experience for those who go religiously every Sunday. You have some of the best musicians both from Seattle and abroad using this night as a blank canvas. It’s largely improvisational and you’ll witness some of the best, mind-bending jazz this city has seen.
