Throw Me the Statue - Un Concert A Emporter

posted by on February 21 at 17:05 PM

Making the blog rounds today: Seattle popsters Throw Me the Statue’s recent “take away show” for La Blogotheque. The band performs “About To Walk,” “Lolita,” and a cover of Guided By Voices’ “My Valuable Hunting Knife” on a ferry full of morning commuters. “About to Walk” is especially swoon-worthy. Their debut album, Moonbeams, previously available via Baskerville Hill, was re-released yesterday on Secretly Canadian.

Throw Me the Statue play as part of the Stranger’s Young Ones Showcase, a benefit for Real Change, Thurs March 6th at Neumo’s and Sole Repair, $5 suggested donation, 21+

Christ, I can't believe that more people weren't watching them. I'd be so right there, going "Wow, are you guys really Throw Me The Statue? What are you doing on the ferry?" like a big dork.

I'm confused. There's no way they were getting that sound outside on a ferry, even if they were close-mic'd (which they don't appear to be).

Sounds nice, though.
