With the exception of Dallas (WTF, Dallas?), every US date on Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds tour is SOLD OUT. So it’s safe to say that if you want to see Cave at The Paramount here in Seattle on Sunday April 7th, make sure you get in on the pre-sale that starts at 10:00 AM on Thursday, February 14th, via Cave’s official site. Pre-sale’s for Cave’s San Diego and San Fransisco stops also start on Thursday.
Screw the chocolate and flowers! All I want for Valentine’s Day are Nick Cave tickets.
From the Alice Cooper crunch of ‘Wrong Ghost’, to the straightforward face-melting power of ‘The Bitch’, the first record out today from Seattle band Sailor Mouth, ‘Fair Winds’ has completely won my heavy metal heart by blowing out my eardrums. That’s why I’ve made all 11 tracks on Fair Winds today’s Daily Earwig. According to the band, their music is all about three of my favorite things: “Big guitars, big drums, big mouths”. I think I’m in love.
Speaking of blowing out your ears, Sailor Mouth plays one of the greatest rooms in Seattle tonight for their record release, The Sunset Tavern. You can also listen to Fair Winds in it’s entirety via Sailor Mouth’s Bandcamp page. And don’t forget to turn it up to 11.
On Monday the folks at The Tractor said that tickets for the Mudhoney/Feedtime show might be available at the door. That is no longer the case. Many thanks to my good time buddy, Angry F*cking Johnny for scoring these tickets in advance so we can join the lucky 350 touch-me-I’m-sick-happy folks in Ballard tonight.
Pretty, Sexy, Dirty Girly, a all-girl group show opens tonight at The Bherd Gallery in Seattle. Bonus? Tonight’s opening will also feature burlesque by Cherry Manhattan and Lyla La Coeur. Doors at 6:00.
SPOKANARCHY! Lots of 80’s NW flavored punk, with a high possibility of weirdness. For Dr. H.
Major props go out to Seattle’s Grand Illusion Cinema for bringing the punks , weirdos, artists, and misfits of Spokane, Washington’s 80’s punk scene to the big screen with SPOKANARCHY!. SPOKANARCHY! chronicles the punk movement in the “culturally barren” stomping grounds of 1980’s Spokane. Bonus? Filmmaker and very metal Imaginary Girl, Chris Estey, will do a Q&A on Saturday, February 11th. SPOKANARCHY! is a must-see-or-die-trying flick.
