Tennis returns to Seattle on Wednesday, December 14th with a show at the Crocodile. The trio, Alaina Moore, Patrick Riley and James Barone are touring the album Cape Dory, as well as their December 7-inch release Origins. Tennis’ vocals should sound gorgeous in the Crocodile’s sound system. A new album is expected in February next year, so I would expect you might hear some newer material as well at the Seattle date. You can listen to Cape Dory right here. 8 p.m., $12.
