Update: I have a pair of tickets to give away for this show. Email me (picker at/@ ipickmynose dot/. com) with “contest” in the subject line before Wednesday June 11 at noon and I’ll pick a winner at random shortly thereafter. Update2: The contest is now closed. Thanks for playing.
Ipickmynose will be presenting two of my favorite local bands Geographer and Two Sheds (myspace), along with Seattle-ites Friday Mile (myspace) and locals Marabelle Pheonix. The show starts at 8pm and will only run you only 7 American dollars.
I first saw Geographer a few months ago when they were called something else at the Great American and heard something pretty exciting in their sound. I also caught them a month or so ago at 12 Galaxies and they had the crowd going. They make nice indie pop with catchy synth lines and great melodies. I think your head will be bopping if you see them. Be sure to check out some more tracks from their set down at KZSU.
Two Sheds hit me like a train the first time I heard “It’s Hard”. I just couldn’t get over it. I made sure to see them at SxSW (and then again in SF and SD). They write really great songs and the simple and effecting instrumentation supports Caitlin’s wonderful voice nicely. They’ve put on great sets every time I’ve seen them. They came down and did a set at KZSU last week and their new tunes sound good too.
Two Sheds – It’s Hard (mp3)
I haven’t seen Friday Mile before but I got their EP a couple weeks ago. It’s a disc of solid, subdued indie rock with male and female vocals. “Westward Bound” is a nice tune with country-ish inflections.
I don’t have any Marabelle Phoenix to share with you at the moment, but you can check out her/ their sometimes dark countryish sounds on myspace.
Should be a great show. Hope to see you there!
