Show Preview & Photos: The Apple War @ Neumos

The Apple War is opening for another great local Seattle band, the Purrs Monday night, May 18th at Neumos. I suggest you go. I saw the Apple War a couple weeks ago at the Sunset and they actually made me happy. Do you know how hard positive music is to do? I think it’s really hard to do well and I am enjoying their CD, Alarm Bell City, especially All Signs Point to Yes (Try, Try, Try).

The show starts at 8:30 and it’s only $5.

Here are some of my photos from the Sunset show (Link to Gallery):

Happy Syttende Mai & Alexander Rybak

Norway celebrates its independence from Sweden for the 195th time today. And how fitting is it that this Norwegian fella, Alexander Rybak, kicked ass with a fiddle at this year’s Eurovision?

photos from a bunch of last week’s shows

I saw quite a few great shows last week and it’s time to get caught up on posting the photos. I love The Ironclads and it was a treat to see them two nights in a row. Constant Lovers, What What Now and Navigator vs. Navigator were all standouts as well.

Hotels played Chop Suey on May 7th with Eric Blood. As you know I love Hotels. I am also very interested in checking out Eric Blood’s new work since it’s sounding mighty good on his myspace page. I couldn’t make it to this show and though I’m disappointed, Alex Crick took some cool pictures of both bands.
