Three Imaginary Girls

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

crafting with Carissa's Wierd and The Femurs

Join us Sunday, June 27 from 1p-3p at Neptune Coffee for the second edition of our Imaginary Crafty Listening Party! Last month we had a glorious time making new crafty friends and debuting the new Math & Physics Club album.  This time around, we’ll fill the air with the likes of two album we think should be on your must-have summer playlist:

    Carissa’s WierdThey’ll Only Miss You When You Leave: Songs 1996-2003
    This retrospective reminds us why Carissa’s Wierd should be counted as one of the most important bands to come out of Seattle. They perfected elegant sadness and inspired the beard-core movement that has penetrated today’s music charts.

    The album releases July 13, 2010 on Hardly Art and they will knock our socks off at the Showbox at the Market on July 9. Listen to “Die” on repeat.

    The FemursHoneymoon
    The new Femurs’ album oozes with the carefree Lookout! Records aesthetic we love them for. It begs for repeated listens as it bounces with happy notes from taken from The Ramones and early Violent Femmes playbooks. The album released earlier this year, but it’s such a perfect soundtrack for sunny adventures we want to make sure it crosses your radar in time to be added to your summertime roadtrip mixtape. Have a listen!

    The Femurs are taking July off from shows, but they have two on the calendar for August: August 8 at the Sunset Tavern and August 27 at the Columbia City Theater {at Sgt Major’s album release show!}.

We’ll have a handfuls of Carissa’s Wierd and Femurs related prizes to raffle all for those that join us for the crafting fun. It’s all ages, but Neptune does offer wine and beer for sale to those of us with IDs.

What craft project have you been wanting to start or finish up? I might be just about ready to put some finishing touches on a bag project and, of course, I still have some baby blankets that have been in process for a while now.
