Seattle Magazine, an actual, real-life magazine, just published an article on their website entitled “The 50 Bands Rocking Seattle Music Right Now.”
You should peruse the entire article, but here are the three highlights for me: Look at the Indie Pop section and you’ll immediately see some of my favorite musics being avidly represented:
Out of all 50 of the bands listed in the article, I had only ever seen two others perform live:
- The Hoot Hoots
- Katie Kate
Yikes! I had heard of most of the acts in the article (and heard a handful of them on KEXP), but many of these are complete unknowns to me. The article seemed to be skewed strangely, with some of the genres having dozens of included acts whereas the hip-hop genre only included three acts (none of which were Three Ninjas, bee-tee-dub).
But still it is very cool seeing Julia Massey & The Jesus Rehab get a modicum of the praise they deserve.
SPEAKING OF seeing The Jesus Rehab, they’re having a show this Friday evening! It’s on Bainbridge Island!
Jesus Rehabbed on an Island
Bainbridge Island is, unfortunately, a bit over an hour’s drive away from my house (it might be much shorter than that for Seattle peeps depending on the ferry schedule). So I am a very soft maybe for this show.
But if all possible YOU SHOULD GO!
