Three Imaginary Girls

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

{Karl Blau}

Karl Blau’s live show is unassuming, sometimes off-putting to audience members who don’t quite know what he’s about, gorgeous, and altogether swoon-worthy.  It is no coincidence that Karl Blau has been a member of, and has performed with, some of my most favorite bands: Your Heart Breaks, D+, Mount Eerie, and Laura Veirs are just some that come to mind immediately. One of my first indie rock loves was the KRecs/Knw-Yr-Own Anacortes/OlyWa scene and its members/musicians, leading to my discovery of Clothes Yr I’s soon after it was re-released on K Records in 2003. (The fourth track, “Thorns,” is pure heart-tugging greatness.)

You can soak up some of the goodness first-hand on Friday, January 28th at the Sunset Tavern, where Karl Blau will be taking the stage at the Sunset Tavern along with the likes of the always-delightful Pica Beats and the dreamy, layered-vocal sounds of The Soft Hills. And we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away!

Send an email to tig {at} by 3p on Thursday, January 27th to be entered to win two tickets to this great night of music. Please put “KarlBlauAteMyCat” in the subject line. In the body, tell us why you think (or know) the sky is blue. (Srsly, science is awesome!) Good luck!!
