Tonight in Seattle:  

Sea of Bees

Win a pair tickets to see Stornoway at the Triple Door {Tuesday 5/31}

Last year one of my favorite albums of the year was Stornoway's Beachcombers Windowsill. The aptly named album has a magical soothing effect, conjuring Maxwell House International Cafe-style visions of life in a quiet British seaside town, watching the fog roll in and sipping earl grey.

It was such a treat to see them perform their batch of understated melodies to a sold out crowd at the Crocodile last December (with Head and the Heart opening). This time the Oxford-based band Stornoway returns to Seattle on Tuesday, May 31 for an elegant night of warm and earnest britfolk at the Triple Door with Portland Sparklehorsey songstress Sea of Bees… and we have a pair of tickets to giveaway!!!

To enter, email tig @ three imaginary girls.com with the subject line "Dizzy from Zorbing" by 9am on Thursday, May 26.

It's that time of year again: the time of year in which we can listen to "Last Christmas" without headphones and not get chastised by our coworkers. It also gives us a time to sift through our holiday mixtapes and listen to our favorite bands get all holly jolly Christmas for us. Is there any better way to get into the mood for the Imaginary Holiday Office Party on December 16, 2010 at the Columbia City Theater?
