This Sunday is going to be so much fun we can hardly stand it.
At Neumos is ROCK LOTTERY and if you haven't been, it's a beautiful exersize in musical creativity as armies of Seattle music luminaries meet up for a one-day song writing session with an end of the night review of their day's work.
ChrisB wrote all about it this week for Three Imaginary Girls on the KEXP blog… and explains it much better there.
But that's not all! This Sunday finds Mike McGonigal hosting a Yeti launch party at 6pm at the Anne Bonny on Capitol Hill. It's free and there will be music and food and copies of the limited press book for sale. Here's the full skinny:
The Portland-based arts journal YETI celebrates the release of YETI #5 with mirth and music and food and copies of the new issue which is only $11.95 this time (lowered the price a buck, thanks to the recession). We'll also have copies on hand of the books we've published in the last year by Tara Jane O'Neil, Luc Sante and Jana Martin.
Of course, YETI was started in Seattle by editor Mike McGonigal around 2000 or so. And there's a lot of content on the CD and in the book coming from Sublime Frequencies founders Hisham Mayet and Alan Bishop – notably Hisham's "tour diary" of his travels through Mauritania and surrounding regions. After the party, we're all headed to Neumo's for Rock Lottery, yay!
YETI #5 is packed-to-the gills: An 80-minute CD with 25 rare tracks
and 228 perfect-bound pages plus a gorgeous metallic 4-color cover by
Saul Chernick (dig the pink bulldog).
