The Whore Moans and the Hands combined last night at Holy Mountain to become the Whore-Hands. The Whore Moans’ song The Holy Fucking Moment could explain it all. Kind of. The Ironclads had their CD-release party and this band has guts, for real. A horribly drunk girl actually threw up right before their set, on the stage and it appeared some of the puke may have hit their gorgeous bassist, Nora. But there’s no stopping this band, who put on a stupendous show. Openers What What Now and the Quiet Ones rounded out the whole night smoothly and darkly.
Way more shots on their way as Amelia and I both were taking pix. Here’s a fave of mine so far:

Tonight the High Dive is having quite the quadruple bill:
I wish I had a larger version of this poster – it’s Man Party, The Beats,Man, The Royal Bear and The Toy Soldiers.
The Holy Mountain too has a mega bill for Friday of lovely proportions:
Kristen Truax of Blush Photo opens her photography exhibit on Thursday, April 2nd. Kristen’s a versatile and talented photographer whose work I admire greatly. Seattle is very lucky to have her.
See Me River will perform and even those of you under 21 can go!

I’ve seen all the bands in this Friday’s lineup at Holy Mountain and am confidently calling it ahead of time one of the best shows of the year. Not so far this year – all year. The Ironclads will be joined by The Whore-Hands (The Whore Moans+The Hands=magnificence), The Quiet Ones, and What What Now. Be there!
