Today, (and most days, actually) I'm really in the mood for a POLITE EMAIL from a real person who isn't just spamming for the spam of it.
EMAIL 1: Andy Wylie wrote to let us know that he recently self-released a debut solo album Mournography for his project City Bear (before that, he spent four years in the horror rock band, Church for Sinners). The full album can be listened to/purchased online at the City Bear Bandcamp, OR you can head over to the Conor Byrne tomorrow evening and catch the live show.
City Bear w/Phosphenes, the Faradays | Conor Byrne, 5140 Ballard Ave NW | $7, 9pm
Gordon "Leadfoot" Griffiths
EMAIL 2: Gordeaux wrote to let us know that we should have promoted his band Thrasher's Corner's last gig and even included a photo of himself with the caption "I'm pretty effing HOT!" to prove that it was our loss. Since we slept on that last show, you can attend the next one on April 26th. He probably puts it best:
This is going to raise the bar in W Sea, dudes! 25 Cent Ride are a brand new group playing Americana-influenced Rock, and T/C is THE NW SOUND. For 5 bucks (or whatever) you won't get any better rocknroll anytime, anyplace, any town-I ain't lyin'!!!!! So get your butts down to the BENBOW April 26 & plan on taking a cab or public transportation or maybe even an ambulance home!!!
