The Young Ones

In last week’s paper we profiled 10 up and coming bands that we think are going to be hot shit in 2007. The list was tough to cut down, there are a lot of great bands and musicians out there right now, but we narrowed it down to Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground, Lesbian, Dyme Def, Night Canopy, Pleasureboaters, Grand Hallway, Bow & Arrow, Arthur & Yu, Nazca Lines, and the Heavy Hearts. We called them the Young Ones, and they’re all pretty fuckin’ great.
Today we got this letter about the feature:
I love that there was an article about the up and coming bands in Seattle. There are so many in this area that it’s great to recognize them. I feel that there is a gap in this though… I know that you have people where their job is to research and find these new bands but what about asking your readers? Who knows you may find out about this tiny band that supposedly no one has ever heard of… I know I have a couple up my sleeves. Just a thought because I would like to see these guys recognized as well.
We told you who we think should rule 2007, but I want to know, what new local bands are you excited about right now?
