Three Imaginary Girls

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

Tonight's stellar lineup at Neumo's celebrates the release of Slender Mean's newest EP, Rock & Roll Machine, their first new release since 2005's Neon & Ruin. While the EP lacks some of the magical hooks of their full-length, new Slender Means songs are always a reason for celebration, and their live shows never fail to please — the chance to hear Joshua Dawson's voice ringing through the Neumo's sound system is reason alone.

Members of Slender Means have also been supporting Rocky Votolato's recent tour (including Slender Means guitarist Sonny Votolato, Rocky's brother), and we're hoping they'll be doing it again tonight for the hometown crowd.

I'm not familiar with openers Drag the River or Street to Nowhere. Has anyone else seen them before who could share their thoughts and opinions with the rest of the imaginary class?
