Three Imaginary Girls

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

We are at T-minus five days till our Exile in {Imaginary} Girlville party at Chop Suey on June 25, which features nine of our favorite Northwest bands — Throw Me the Statue, Team Gina, M. Bison, Tea Cozies, Lucy Bland, Star Anna, Tennis Pro, Visqueen, and Lesli Wood of Ms. Led — covering Liz Phair's seminal debut record, Exile in Guyville, from start to finish.

The night celebrates both the 15th anniversary re-release of the record as well as TIG's sixth birthday party and it's going to be more fun than a barrel of monkeys.

Today we're all kinds of excited because our event has been honored by two of our most favorite Seatte institutions: the Stranger and KEXP.

The Stranger was kind enough to make Exile in {Imaginary} Girlville the recommend event of the day for Wednesday — lookie what they had to say:

Exile in (Imaginary) Girlville

In 1993, a whole bunch of people met and fell in love with a record that would quickly distinguish itself as one of indie rock's greatest—Exile in Guyville, Liz Phair's career-engendering, critics'-poll-topping debut that recalibrated expectations of what a girl and her guitar could do. Tonight, Three Imaginary Girls honors Guyville's 15th anniversary with a slew of local folks—including Rachel Flotard, Ms. Led, Throw Me the Statue, Team Gina, and Tennis Pro—playing Guyville start to finish. (Cohosted by yours truly.) (Chop Suey, 1325 E Madison St, 324-8000. 8 pm, $8, 21+.)

The Stranger also picked the poster — made my the amazing Rick at Seattle Show Posters — as the Poster of the Week!


This week's poster comes to us from Seattle Show Posters ( via Three Imaginary Girls. SSP brings a stylish, '50s-influenced look to its work for bands such as the Velvet Teen, Tullycraft, and Poison the Well. This show marks TIG's sixth anniversary.
