Three Imaginary Girls

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

KEXPLast night's Robyn Hitchcock & the Venus 3 show at the Crococile was insanely good. He did five — FIVE! — encores. So needless to say, I'm getting a slow and late start today.

But no matter, from the looks of the bill at the KEXP Audioasis showcase at the High Dive tonight, it's just as well. I'm glad I slept in and I need to go eat my Wheaties. Tonight is going to be another late night.

The KEXP Audioasis showcases should be submitted to the indie-rock olympics, they require so much stamina. With local Northwest bands starting at 6p and not ending till closing time, anyone who perseveres for the entire event deserves a medal. Tonight's lineup is particularly good, and all the $8 door goes to the local non-profit World Affairs Council. Rock for a good cause = A++ in my imaginary book.

I'm not 100% sure of the set order, but I'm pretty sure it's gonna go a little like this:

Playing early, live on KEXP's Audioasis:

  • The Cops
  • Coho

Playing the late show:

  • Shake Some Action!
  • The Hands
  • The Whore Moans
  • The Cops, part deux

Plan your evening accordingly!

{Also, it looks like you can still save a few pennies by ordering will call at Brown Paper Ticket.}

Though even as I type this, I see loads of other show-going tempations on tonight's calendar.

Where's everyone heading tonight?
