I cannot be more excited for TIG's Inauguration Day party, which is coming up in just five more nights with Ed Wang, Benjamin Bear, H is for Hellgate and Friday Mile.
I'm going to write about one band each day until the big event (which I booked to coincide with my upcoming thirtieth birthday).
The first band is Friday Mile, who are one of the tightest pop rock bands in the Northwest. Singer Jace Krause has a soft voice that is Posie-esque and it works perfectly with the guitar and keyboard-based melodies as well as against singer Hannah Williams' harmonies.
They recently finished recording a new record that I cannot wait to hear and it should be out in 2009. If it comes anywhere near the brilliance of this song, "Distance=Danger", it will be a very strong contender for album of the year.
Friday Mile plays with H is for Hellgate, Benjamin Bear and Ed Wang at TIG's Inauguration Day Party on Tuesday, January 20 at Chop Suey. $7, 21+.
