Three Imaginary Girls

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

I really hate being the one who mentions band breakups here, but alas I must post another one. This is for a band that is near and dear to my heart for more than decade: Harvey Danger.

The band said in a statement on their website last week:

After 15 years, three albums, hundreds of shows, and far more twists and turns than we ever imagined possible, we've decided to put Harvey Danger to rest. The decision is totally mutual and utterly amicable. Everyone is very proud of the work we've done together, but we've also come to feel that our collaboration has–in a very positive way–run its course. We're all eager to try our hands at other projects, musical and otherwise. Chances are we'll all work together in one form or another; if we've learned anything, it's that you never know what will happen. Of course, putting an end to something we've been working on since our early 20s can't help being accompanied by a soupcon of melancholy. Nonetheless, as the Chambers Brothers remind us, time has come today. Rock bands have life spans, and Harvey Danger's has been longer, and more eventful, than even we would have predicted.

Over a few consecutive New Years Eve's, the band was playing their "Annual Last Show Ever", but officially the last show ever will be August 29 at the Crocodile (and an all ages show at Vera the night before). I'll post more details of these shows as they are forthcoming.

I am hoping to get to hear this song one final time at the Croc ("Meetings with Remarkable Men"):
