This Thursday local pop punk band Quickie is setting out to break the world record by playing 48 shows in one day. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE LATELY?
Take it away, press release:
Seattle pop-punk band Quickie plans to set a World Record by playing 40+ venues in one day! The “40 Quickies in One Night” marathon of mini-concerts will take place on Thursday, September 30th, from 9:30am until midnight or “however long it takes,” says Quickie’s lead singer and bass-player, Lou Trez.
The band says the goal is simply to get their music heard. “It’s never easy when you are a local band, writing original songs,” Trez explains. “So you have to create your own opportunities to get people to listen.” Creating that opportunity included gathering support from sponsors like Zip Fizz, Cowgirls Espresso, Rock-n-RollRealtor.com, and 48 clubs and cafes in the area. “It’s a real community effort. We’re all having fun with it!”
All shows are free. It will start at 9:30 am on the Bob Rivers show on KZOK. It should wrap up with a show at the Central (where they'll play a longer set—"Kind of a victory lap," the band says).
Here they are singing a song about Bikini Baristas (pasties included!):
