Help Open Mike Eagle Out and Buy a Damned Ticket, Wouldya?

The man is a professional, after all.

The man is a professional, after all.

Hey, listen: Open Mike Eagle could use your help. See, he’s trying to put on a independent tour to promote his upcoming album, Brick Body Kids Still Daydream (which comes on on Friday—pre-order it RIGHT FRIKKIN’ NOW). It’s… not going so well. Just watch this premiere episode of his new reality show, “Dead Ass:”

But it’s easy to help him out! He’s coming to Seattle in early October, so all y’all gotta do is buy a damned ticket (and as an added “bonus” you’ll see me at the show, ’cause I’m going too).

Help Mike go from this…

…to THIS.

Go See Fools Play in Olympia This Saturday… For Me!

'Cause I ain't gonna be able to be there!

‘Cause I ain’t gonna be able to be there!

It seems like Fools Play was just in Olympia a couple of weeks ago (because it WAS), but it’s back this Saturday the 12th! So you’ll need to go see it… for me, because I won’t be there.

*GASP!*

It’s true; I will be camping this weekend (in all the hazy glory right now) and will be unable to attend. But that just means that now’s your chance to finally see this show without my ugly mug messin’ up the view fer ya!

Conspire to See the Gentlemen of Leisure Tomorrow (Thursday) Night!

GOL.LIFE

The Harper Conspiracy headlines the show.

I know Thursday is a school night ‘n’ all, but it’s also a fantastic opportunity to see a fantastic live performance by the Gentelmen of Leisure!

Details:
The Harper Conspiracy, Gentlemen of Leisure, Whitney Mongé (Faced Book Event)
Thursday, August 10th, 9:00 PM
@ The Sunset Tavern
5433 Ballard Ave NW, Seattle 98107 (map)
21+, $8.00

And guess what: despite the fact that it is a school night, Carrie & I plan on being in the audience! Wut-wut?

C’est vrai! But the only reason we can pull that off is because we have Friday off from work. Otherwise we might just be too old to go gallivanting around town listening to those crazy kids and their jungle music. Where are my ear plugs and my walker?

Warren Dunes Plays Musics with the Hoot Hoots & the Echolarks This Saturday

hootechodunes

First things first, isn’t that an awexome poster? I just lorve it.

So this Saturday (July 1st) there’s gonna be a pretty durned great show happening up at the Sunset Tavern in Seattle. Apparently a couple of members of the band The Hoot Hoots have birthdays about now-ish, so they’re calling this a “Birthday Show” for The Hoot Hoots. They’re a great, high-energy, funny band with matching costumes and light-up glasses. Always a goot time! Then there are the Echolarks, and I’m afraid I haven’t actually seen them live before so I can’t comment on them, but their recorded music has an exceptionally high polish and professionalism, and is quite catchy. And finally there’s Warren Dunes, the supergroup mashup of the Five Finger Discount and Electric NoNo. This is Warren Dunes’s first public show (their previous one was invite-only)!

In order of appearance on the poster, here are some sample songs from each of the bands involved in this show so you can sample the goodness:

So, yeah, should be a grand ol’ time!

Electric NoNo at Squeak & Squawk Tacoma this Friday!

Squeak & Squawk Tacoma

Squeak & Squawk Tacoma

As a TacoMan, I’m very pleased that there is going to be some excellent live musics in our town this coming weekend. It’s the return of the Squeak & Squawk Music Festival, an absurdly sporadic happening over the past 10 years (I think it’s been about 5 years since the last one).

And on Friday night, our good friends Electric NoNo are going to be playing at The Valley near the Tacoma Dome! That promises to be some kickass musics like this:

Also, LAKE will be performing on Saturday at an all-ages show at the Courthouse Square Ballroom. LAKE (it must be all-caps like that) is fronted by Ashley Eriksson, who you may know as the woman who made the end credits song for Adventure Time. Take a listen:

I betcha didn’t know she was a local, didja?

Anyways, there’s a buncha other musics happening from Thursday through Monday at various venues around town, so there’ll probably be at least someone you’ll wanna listen to. You can see the full lineup on Squeak & Squawk’s event page on the Faced Book. I’ll for-sure be at The Valley this Friday! SO CAN YOU!

Fools Play. Improv Comedy. June 17th. Olympia.

Who. What. When. Where.

Who. What. When. Where.

Hey, gang, just letting you know that I will be one of the performers at this Saturday’s (June 17th) episode of Fools Play Improv in Olympia. Therefore, you, dear reader, should be one of the audience members.

Details:
Fools Play Improv in Olympia
Saturday, June 17th 8:30PM
@ The South Sound Estuarium
309 State Ave NE, Olympia, WA (map)
All-Ages, Only $5!

It starts at 8:30, which is a weird time for a show to start, I admit. But it ends around 10:00-10:30, so there’s plenny of time to go out afterward and get your drank on. If, y’know, that’s your “thang.”

See you there! 💖💖💖
