Photos of Terrapin, The Old Salt, and Dreamy Weather

Saturday night after Fools Play I successfully walked the 2.5 blocks to Le Voyeur in time to catch the music show that was happening there. Of the 4 music acts, I had seen three of them before.

Frances Rose is a goddess who stuns you with her golden voice. Breathtaking as always.

Terrapin Productions drowns you in his wall of sound:

Terrapin: Shoe-Gazin' Rockstar

The Old Salt attacks with his driven, unconventional soundscapes:

The Old Salt and Terrapin Productions really complement each other’s sounds. They play in a similar genre but with very different styles.

But the real revelation of the night was Dreamy Weather, whom I’d never heard of before this show:

Dreamy Weather: Dreamy Duet

Dreamy Weather: Dreamy Duet

A duet with a ukulele/vocalist and an electric guitarist, Dreamy Weather blew me away. Evelyn (ukulele/vocals) has a sing-songy, high voice like Katharine Whalen (of Squirrel Nut Zippers) or Nataly Dawn (of Pomplamoose), but with a bit more power behind it. And she looks like a cross between Zooey Deschanel and Lisa Loeb. Plus she plays the ukulele, which is always a bonus for me:

Completely adorable and enjoyable. Evelyn and Frances Rose geeked out about Beyoncé between all the sets. Dreamy Weather only performed a small handful of songs, but that’s just because they’ve only been playing together for a very short time and don’t really have any more songs. I totally would love to see them perform again soon.

Quite a club.

The rest of the month of February is P.C. (that’s “Pretty Crazy” to you). There are a whole gob of pretty durned awexome music shows happening. This weekend are two of ’em!

First up, tonight (Saturday the 15th) we have:

All playing Le Voyeur in Olympia. Show starts at 10:00 PM… which just so happens to be when Fools Play Improv gets over. And Fools Play Improv just happens to be about three blocks away from Le Voyeur. So, y’know, if you wanted to go to Fools Play and then afterwards stroll on down to Le Voyeur to catch this show, well, then you’d be doing exactly what I’ll be doing!

Then on Monday we have L.A.’s HELLFYRE CLUB!

As part of their “Dorner vs Tookie” tour to support the release of their collaboration album, these Hellfyre Club members are going to be stopping by The Crocodile in Seattle for what looks to be probably the best overall hip-hop show of the year. With a lineup like that I can’t really see how it’ll be topped.
