Three Imaginary Girls

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

{Damien Jurado, Widower, Tony Kevin Jr. at Columbia City Theater}

Our friends over at Sound on the Sound are presenting their first show of 2011, and it’s sure a doozy: none other than one of our imaginary favorites, Damien Jurado, will be headlining on a bill that includes Widower and Tony Kevin Jr. tonight at Columbia City Theater.

In case you haven’t seen all the exclamation points flying around the site over the last few months, let us refresh your memories: we simply just Can’t. Get. Enough of Damien Jurado’s 2010 release here in the imaginary offices. Saint Bartlett is nothing short of an indie triumph, with a start-to-finish one-take sound that begs to be heard on vinyl. It’s at once simple and adventurous, and as many a critic have stated, a gorgeous and well-charted departure from anything he’s done over the last few years — while managing to maintain his signature sound down in the underpinnings, much to our delight.

Here’s a little taste, in the event that Saint Bartlett hasn’t made it’s way into your colection yet:


If that’s not enough to get you out to Columbia City in the drizzle tonight, I don’t know what is. Tickets are going fast, and we strongly recommend that you pick one (or four) up in advance over at Brown Paper Tickets before you head to the show. We’ll see there!
