Julia Massey at Neumos

As this is being posted, Carrie & I are on our way up to Seattle to see the Open Mike Eagle show at Nectar Lounge. I pre-scheduled this post!

While we enjoy that excellent show, I thought I’d share some photos from another excellent show: Julia Massey & the Five Finger Discount played Neumos in Seattle last Friday night. Yes, Neumos!

But even earlier in the day, something particularly awesome happened. World-renowned radio station KEXP played a JM+FFD song… and then immediately followed it with a song by The Jesus Rehab! Yes, a radio station played songs from two groups I’m actually friends with… one after the other. Don’t believe me? I got proof!

See? Lookithat! I took a screenshot of the KEXP playlist the moment it happened (I also plastered it all over Facebook and Twitter, so you’ve probably already seen it).

So that seemed like an auspicious thing to happen before their Neumos show. And it was a quite excellent show. Here are some crappy photos taken by my crappy camera phone!

It’s always nice to see JM+FFD at a real rock venue with a really good sound system. It was also great to see so many other Seattle music luminaries in the audience, like Three Ninjas and Robb Benson among others.

Well, I’m off to see Open Mike Eagle now. Maybe I’ll take some crappy camera phone photos of this show, too!
