How often does an old legend return to the fold and sound as fresh as ever? Not often enough we say (insert name of your Great Band/Bad Album favorite here).
Tonight is a great night for shows in town: Brit pop rockers the Kooks are at the Croc, !!! (!!!) at Neumo's, but the Arctic Monkeys get my recommendation, if merely on points.
Last night's Jarvis Cocker show was magical! We should have a show review up in the next couple days chock full of more gorgeous Jarvis pictures... but to hold us all over, here's one from our imaginary photographer Michael Clements.
And don't think seeing Jarvis is a rehashed nostalgia. His debut solo release, Jarvis, is an extraordinary recording, chock full of his darkly observant lyrics, catchy melodies and samples ("Crimson and Clover," anyone?), and of course, Jarvis' disintinctly earnest and slightlydissonant voice.

Ted Leo & The Pharmacists and will be in Seattle tonight with Melbourne’s Love of Diagrams. I’ve been loving their debut release Mosiac (released on Matador). It’s angular and rhythmic and stands out from indie’s recent offerings.
Huge hugs and thanks to Heather Hydra who beautifully documented last Saturday's Long Winters show at the Showbox.
Tacoma band Mono in VCF just won the coveted spot of opening for former Pulp front-man Jarvis Cocker when he plays at the Showbox in Seattle on April 30th.
