The Stranger's music blog, Line Out, has caused quite a stir this week with the whole Atlas Clothing all-ages venue controversy, but this afternoon they've amused and delighted me with their some of their recent blog posts: Eddie Argos nekkid, the Pogues in Seattle, and BOAT love. Three cheers!
We are proud and deliriously happy for BOAT who's new album, Let's Drag Our Feet, has inspired Pitchfork to take notice (and in a subliminal, very hopeful way, we think it is the indie demigod's way of celebrating our birthday with us).
To get ready for the shows, our treat of the day today is a new Imaginary Indie Tunes podcast. This podcast includes two songs from each of the six artists performing at our shows: BOAT, The Shaky Hands, Dolour, the Western States Motel, Eux Autres, and Patience Please!
This podcasts highlights bands who will be playing at our two TIG 5th Birthday Party shows on July 6-7th, 2007, including BOAT, the Shaky Hands, Dolour, Patience Please, Eux Autres, and the Western States Motel.
In honor of the 23rd day pre-event, today's we highlight this special treat: Seattle lo-fi superheroes BOAT playing "Clogged Castle" at the Sunset
