Friday, April 6th – Alvvays + Frankie Rose at Neumos (SOLD OUT)
Yes that’s right, this one’s already sold out, but just in case someone comes careening out of the shadows with an extra ticket for you- TAKE IT DUMMY.
After many Seattleites fell in love with Alvvays‘ endearing single “Archie, Marry Me,” in 2014, the Canadian poppers have returned with their solid start to finish sophomore album Antisocialites. Alvvays hone a perfect type of beach-pop; sweetly singable and easy to imagine yourself somewhere warmer. They’ll have you looking directly out into the waves in the late afternoon sun, forced to don your ray bans to save your eyes from their glistening beauty. If you love dream pop do not miss this show!
Saturday, April 7th – The Soft Moon, Boy Harsher + Missions
On the opposite end of the spectrum, perhaps you’re feeling moody and wish to be sonically assaulted in a glorious bubble of darkwave this weekend? The Soft Moon perfectly blend industrial tinged darkwave, post-punk and all of The Cure’s most bummery guitar riffs. I for one cannot wait for this live show and have been loving their newest record Criminal underneath our gloomy, dripping skies. In fact it’ll feel weird if it doesn’t rain that night, so I for once, hope to see a deluge that night. Don’t forget your earplugs kids! I have a feeling this one will course through your entire body.
Saturday, April 7th – Stayin’ Alive at Orient Express
OR perhaps you’d like to take a trip back in time to a land of sequins, bell bottoms and SUPER CHUNKY HEELS? Then check out the bi-monthly 70’s disco dance party, Stayin’ Alive at Orient Express. Who doesn’t want to dress up and party in a train car? Let it be known I am recommending this event purely on some Instagram vids and IT LOOKS AMAZING.
Tickets for The Soft Moon are still available at thecrocodile.com (21+, $14)
