In our most amazing Songs For Eating and Drinking evening to date (they keep getting better, but maybe that’s just my bias…), my partner Hebb and I today bow down to the greatness of these musicians. And what a lineup we had… The splendor of this night a couple Wednesday’s ago – the hottest day in Seattle’s history – will be forever burned into my beanie little brain. Sample of the bands represented on this evening:
The Blakes, The Dandy Warhols, Mudhoney, Throw Me The Statue, The Long Winters, The Pica Beats, Rocky Votolato, Say Hi, David Bazan, Sarah Cahoone, Pete International Airport, The Dutchess & The Duke, The Moondoggies.
I’m leaving all four of these performances above the jump in hopes that you’ll check them all out. #3.1 above, Rocky Votolato – wow wow. #3.2 David Bazan (now himself, former lead of Pedro the Lion) – one of the most arresting performer’s I’ve ever seen live. #3.3 Throw Me The Statue – these guys will go huge, I’ll bet a limb. #3.4 Mudhoney – the seminal grunge band is back, and seriously better than ever. Here they’re plugged in as we eat desert at 1am on the rooftop deck. Holy smokes…
And don’t forget: links to these performers on iTunes, 6 or 7 of my favorite stills after the jump [AND 100 more at this gallery here. Please check them out.]
