A Long Winters reason to celebrate

Happy May 10, 2013!  Ten years ago today, The Long Winters performed three shows in three Sonic Boom Record shops in a single day.  It was a mini-tour to celebrate the release of their brilliant record, When I Pretend To Fall… and it was just as amazingly fun as we dreamed it would be.

For their fifth full-length album, Moms, Portland’s Menomena underwent a significant lineup change: front man and multi-instrumentalist Brent Knopf left the group in January of 2011 to focus on his own project, Ramona Falls.

Our favorite indie rock Seattle tour guide: John Roderick

We kinda don’t know where to begin on this one as it combines so many things we love, our hearts are on the cusp of exploding. A couple more watches and we could be toast (albeit tasty brioche french toast like served at Odd Fellows). Our dearest man about town and Long Winter, John Roderick, […]

By now, you’re heard the reports on Ben Gibbard’s show at the Crocodile on Wednesday night: it was pretty much an epic event. The set list killed. The room was packed.

Odds are, if you’re here at Three Imaginary Girls poking around, you’ve heard of Ben Gibbard.
