My Weekend Starts Tonight at High Dive

Even though I have to work tomorrow, I’m counting this last weekend in March as a long one. I’ve only seen one band on the bill tonight at High Dive – What What Now, who blew out the Blue Moon in January and I’ve been looking forward to seeing them again ever since. What What Now @ Blue Moon

I’ve heard great things about the other three: High Divide, History For Sale (CD release tonight) and The Endeavors (video premiere tonight). Can’t wait! 

Friday night will take me to The (amazing and fancy new) Crocodile for The Builders & The Butchers

The Builders & The Butchers @ Capitol Hill Bock Party 2008

and Kay Kay & His Weathered Underground.

Saturday’s Blue Moon show should put me over the top – I have a feeling the mother of all show-hangovers will keep me close to home and happily recovering on Sunday. Check out this lineup:
A Post-Grunge Compilation Showcase starring:
Hearseburner
The Greenriver Thrillers
Dead Scene Celebrity

I hope to see you out there!

Romance on a Wednesday Evening

Romance is playing at the Crocodile on Wednesday, March 25th. It’s been quite a while since I have seen this band and I treasure their cds I have. If we’re lucky the moody Seattle skies will match this music with something like this, a shot of what looks like a skylight at the Crocodile. Dreamy.

Photos: Patrol @ The Crocodile

Patrol played the Crocodile tonight for day two of the venue’s grand opening. Amelia Gydé, who is part of the team of backbeatseattle.com as photographer and writer just edited some sweet shots. I am posting a couple here. The Crocodile is pretty swanky now – that’s right, I am looking at you marble sink.
