Three Imaginary Girls

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

2009-12-18: The Maldives @ Neumos, Seattle, WA

This Thursday’s benefit show for Haiti at the Moore Theatre is chock full of twangy and alt goodness to the highest degree and features a slew of thoughtful bands set to take the stage: The Maldives, The Classic Crime, Memphis Radio Kings, Mike Herrera (MxPx), and Vince Mira. Rumor has it there will also be an auction!

If that’s not your style, get on your cell phone and text ‘Haiti’ to 90999, and then head over to one (or more if you’ve got the bus pass) of these fine shows. There’s more than one tempting me:

  • 41 Miles/Tupelo, Skylark
  • Sue Quigley/Dream On/The Juliettes/Nancy Frieko, Club Motor
  • The Globes/Little Pieces/Oh Captain My Captain, Sunset
  • Smackd Up/Tank Of Zen/Red Heart Alarm, Nectar
  • Joe Firstman/The White Buffalo, High Dive
  • The Horde & The Harem/The Soft Hills/The Oregon Donor, Tractor
  • The New Law/Potatofinger/DJ WD4D, Neumo’s
  • The Quit/Phantom Kicks/Elba/Another Perfect Crime, Comet
  • “Lucinda Williams Tribute Night” – Star Anna & The Laughing Dogs/Strange Jerome/Tony Fulgham/Ryan Purcell & The Last Round/MJ Bishop/Nancy K Dillon/Laura Lee & Tanya Dee, Conor Byrne
  • Skeletons With Flesh On Them/The Purrs/Kids & Animals/The Royal Bear, Crocodile !
  • Death By Steamship/The Ax/Shadow People/Chinese, Funhouse

What are you up to this Thursday night? Any recommendations? Or are you saving up your fancy dance pants for this weekend?
