Born Anchors Play Free Show This Thursday

posted by on March 31 at 14:34 PM

As part of Pioneer Square’s Art Walk, Born Anchors will play a free show at Gibson Guitars Showroom this Thursday, April 3. Gibson isn’t usually open to the public, so this is a rare chance to check the place out. The show is also an art opening for local painter and tattoo artist Chris Thompson, who did the art for Sunny Day Real Estate’s Diary and How it Feels to be Something On. Thompson will be showing new and old work (view more paintings at his MySpace page).

I really like Born Anchors. A while back they were Band of the Week—here’s what I said about them: “Born Anchors play turbulent, raw rock with a post-hardcore edge that’s reminiscent of Jawbox (just a little) and Al Burian’s Challenger (if Challenger were more aggressive).” But you can judge for yourself, here’s a video for their song “Casualty.”
