Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

Three Imaginary Girls, The Stranger, Pabst Blue Ribbon and Neumo’s are proud to present Hootenanny! — our very own SXSW sendoff party for 2010 — with Visqueen, Hey Marseilles, Mash Hall (formerly known as They Live!), and Fences on Friday, March 5th at Neumo’s.

It’s that time of year again, kids — where we all steel ourselves for some couchsurfing, and start making our wishlists for the bands we can’t miss — yes, it’s time to head down to Austin for SXSW 2010! And to celebrate, we’d love for you to join our sendoff party at Neumo’s on Friday, March 5th. Come join us as we wish our favorite ladies and gents well before they hit the road… tickets for this 21+ show are only $10 in advance and $12 at the door.

Expect a downright rager of a night, with local big-guitar all-stars Visqueen headlining the bill, and Hey Marseilles bringing their lush, alt.indie.orchestral songwriting skills to the stage. On top of that magic, Mash Hall and everyone’s favorite Fences will be rounding out the opening support — doors are at 8pm and you won’t want to miss a minute of this lineup. So make sure you’re on the hill nice and early!

(Did we hear somebody say “woo”? I’m quite sure we did.)
