Tonight in Seattle:  

Police Teeth

Celebrate Friday the 13th with BOAT, Bottomless Pit (ex-Silkworm), Police Teeth, the Bismarck

Happy Friday the 13th {April, 2012 edition}!!!

There are so many reasons to be happy today:

  • - It's Friday!
  • - We've been promised that tomorrow will be a sunny Saturday!
  • - Tonight is the 30th birthday celebration for Tall Chris {of Police Teeth} complete with a line-up of so many great bands at the Sunset!

Tonight's show starts at 9pm sharp with The Bismark taking the stage first, followed by Police Teeth {complete with the birthday boy}, Bottomless Pit {formerly Silkworm and their first Seattle show since 2006!}, and then BOAT topping the night off. 

It's nothing new for us to be excited about a BOAT show, but this time marks their first show with their new drummer and they are going to debut some fresh-from-the-oven new songs.  It's been a while since they played, so there's no telling what kind of celebratory things they have planned or constructed.  As the above {super rad, lovey} video shows, they've been hard at work doing BOAT things.

I can't promise there will be cake {although there should be - hint hint to the cake bakers in this town}, but I can guarantee that much fun will be had. 

Recommended show: Hall & Oates covers and a birthday party at the Sunset {Saturday ~ 1/15}

Hall & Oates covers and Heather Hydra turns 30

This Saturday at the Sunset is going to be off the Maneater hizzay as some of Seattle's brightest take the stage to celebrate Hall & Oates and our dear {imaginary staffer and all around indie-queen} Heather Hydra's birthday!

Will there be fluffy Oates mustaches aplenty in the Sunset at the show? The scent of Aquanet wafting from the bathroom? Have we all been practicing our clapping to replicate the tight synth of "Private Eyes"? Fingers crossed / possibly / I hope so!

I *do* know that bands like Ships and Pony Time and as well as members of Police Teeth, Racetrack, Your Heart Breaks and many more will be taking the stage to tackle the multiple-decades catalog of a band that defined 1980's {and for some, the 1970's} for many a feathered-hair folk.

To get us in the mood, here's a little Rich Girl {she's a B!T*H girl!!!} for us all:
