(High Dive) The Shondes are named after the Yiddish word meaning "shameful" or "disgrace," and the outspoken queercore band may be the only musicians I know who embrace Jewish radicalism to write political songs influenced by Jewish liturgy, riot grrrl, punk, and folk. Their set is full of energetic punk songs, punctuated by unexpected bursts of violin over the raucous vocals of bassist/singer Louisa Solomon. Although the NYC-based group has been around since 2006, they have recently gotten a bump in attention for their newest release, The Garden, from Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, and Spin. Also on the bill is Led to Sea, the solo project of NW treasure Alex Guy, who has played violin/viola on records by Xiu Xiu, the Dead Science, the Pharmacy, and Parenthetical Girls. With the Rainiers.
