Three Imaginary Girls

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

{Goldfinch / by Killorn O'Neill}

Two things that are making Friday very extra Friday-y: A., This image is causing a full-frontal poster-gorgeousness coma. B., Goldfinch is playing the Tractor on Sunday night! Be excited. Be very, very excited for both of these things. (Especially since we have a pair of tickets to give away to the show.)

But before we get to the give, let’s get to the get: Goldfinch is a hell of a band. First dropped oh-so-ceremoniously onto the Imaginary Radar by none other than the fair John Roderick during one of his Triple Door shows last summer, these guys (and gal) couple a painful level of lyrical honesty with a haunted undertone that’s positively enrapturing. There’s almost nothing they haven’t done on stage that isn’t pure gold, and seriously — if they can pull something like this off on a whim at a rest stop at 3am, think about what an entire legit show must be like:


We know you’re sold — so now, you’ve got two options. Either pick up some tickets at the Tractor’s website, or enter to win a pair for free from us! (The smart thing to do would be both: grab a pair of tickets, and if you win, bring some extra friends or something. Right? Right.) Shoot an email to us at tig {at} threeimaginarygirls {dot} com before 3pm tomorrow — yes, that’s Saturday, the 19th — with the subject line “MoreThanTheStateBird” to be entered to win. One lucky winner will be notified by email before the end of the day Saturday, and names will be on the guest list +1 for Sunday.

And PS, as if all of this weren’t enough — The David Mayfield Parade is headlining the show, and yes, THAT David Mayfield: brother of the esteemed Jessica Lea Mayfield. Spending eight bucks for this show might be the best thing you do all year.

We’ll see you at the show!
