since my computer's been dead my music listening has been severely hampered. Nonetheless:
Holy Ghost! - Dynamics LCD Soundsystem - 45:33 LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver LCD Soundsystem - This is Happening The Nextdoor Neighbors - Magic VS The Machine Pomegranates - Two Eyes The Middle East - The Recordings of the Middle East Yohuna - Revery Robyn - Body Talk Blue Hawaii - Untogether
Fuel is a sports bar in Pioneer Square that's not awful. The Forge on 1st and Western only has one TV but they've got a roster of excellent sandwiches that they serve all day/night. I'm with Pea though, 95 Slide is excellent and totally worth the short hike. Up in that area there's also Auto Battery and Bill's Off Broadway.
Cut Copy (New album on the way, skipping Seattle on their tour, also they would be a blast) Hot Chip (New single opens the possibility of a new album on the way, can't remember the last time they were in the PNW) YACHT (Rumors of a new album in 2014, perfect festival band)
Actually probably just any DFA artist. That Holy Ghost! set was amazing.
Nick/Dr. Garbanzo: Sorry that I was way too drunk to check my phone and find you guys during James Murphy. That show was pretty rad but I was a little anti-curtain after that show. I get that he wanted to be in his zone back there but you couldn’t see James Murphy unless you were down the middle or around that front left corner. The crowd didn’t seem to mind though. That was the most dancing I have seen at a Seattle club show in a long time.
No worries mate. I took my leave at around 1:30 because I had a boat to catch, but while the music was dope as fuck I was less than impressed with the curtain action. The whole thing had a very different vibe, both sonically and visually, from the Sasquatch! set (which I'll maintain as far, far better). It was fun, but I was expecting more than the whole "night at da club" scene that ended up happening. Good to see Seattle folks movin' their feet though. Doesn't happen often enough.
