Show Preview: Jeremy Burk @ The Comet on July 9th

Jeremy Burk plays the Comet on Thursday, July 9th. Burk’s got an appealing sound and does his stuff very, very well. He just released his debut CD I Hope You Find What You’re Looking For and it’s solid, really smooth folk music. That I recommend this speaks volumes for him because I will admit the term folk scared me from folk music for years. I can’t explain why and it shouldn’t have been that way. I like this CD and I like the banjo playing. I especially like the song Count Your Teeth – it’s emotive and strong.

I’ve seen the Bravery several times and they are one of the most consistently great bands I know of. Ever since I heard An Honest Mistake, Hot Pursuit, The Ring Song . . . well I honestly love their albums and the new one is coming out very, very soon. If you missed them last night the good news is there is a fall tour planned. I can’t wait for them to come back here.

Show Preview: What What Now @ the Blue Moon this Friday

Come to the Blue Moon tomorrow night and experience one of Seattle’s most excellent bands – What What Now. I love this band more than words can express – their music is so catchy, so rockin’, so wonderful… When Dagmar and I were throwing names around for our showcase (8-14 @ Blue Moon), the first that came to my mind was What What Now. Come to this show (and ours) prepared to be wowed.

One of the most memorable shows I’ve been to this year was The Ironclads’ CD release at Holy Mountain. What What Now played that night along with The Quiet Ones, The Ironclads and The Whore-Hands, which is exactly as incredible as the name implies. Dagmar was at that show and said this about What What Now:

I saw What What Now at the recently closed Holy Mountain and their
strength was evident in every song. It’s great to see this band in a small
environment in part because their sounds are built for bigger venues and
still they manage to cradle a space in your inner ear as if you’re the
only one there.

The first five photos are Dagmar’s, the rest are mine.holymountain-010
