In about a week most of us in TIG's immediate region will be getting ready for Bumbershoot, the biggest and best known Seattle music festival since 1971!
I will be the first to toss my crusty black military hat into the ring for one of the regional bands that I am eager to see the most: Mono in VCF. Though I am a big fan of their new sound with Kim Miller on vocals, and have been playing their self-titled debut full-length every day since getting it last week, I have yet to see them live and am very excited to do so.
With a gorgeous, honey-dripping, luxurious mod sound, and love shown them recently from NPR, a four star review from YRB Magazine, and lots of love from other substantial and stylish sources, Mono in VCF is unquestionably a dark horse contender for one of the biggest break out bands from the Pacific NW in 2008.
Bumbershoot affords old and new Mono in VCF's fans alike TWO opportunities to check the band out; one thanks to KEXP's Bumbershoot Music Lounge, and the other in the EMP Sky Church. Both shows are on August 30th. The KEXP performance is at 2:30p, and the EMP Sky Church show is at 6:30p.
