Shilo Suggests: Your Seattle Music Weekend
- Kick your weekend off in an environmentally sensitive way: take the bus to Girl Power Hour Goes Green at The Sole Repair Shop up on Capitol Hill. Learn how to make conscious choices about fashion, food, and much more- but you have to be female to join in the fun.
- The Wood Brothers share their blend of bluegrass and roots music at the Triple Door; I really love the food and music combination especially when it goes down easy like this talented sibling duo.
- Feeling like a little off-to-the-side hip-hop for your Thursday night? Pigeon John graces Nectar and brings his particular and peculiar brand of rhymin’ to Seatown; it’s his CD release party with Ohmega Watts in the house as well.
- Cap off Thursday night-where else?-at Contour and dance into the tiny hours with local deejay legends Mark F-R, Flave, Llyod Tatum, Noisemaker, and Chicks Ahoy (a.k.a. two really hot girl deejays spinning a little punked-out 80’s tasting mash-ups). You got somethin’ better to do?
- Soon-to-be-famous killer rock band Derby from P-Town lights up The Sunset in Ballard. Haven’t heard of them? Get to Ballard tonight and discover your next favorite band.
- For all your reggae-heads out there, Clinton Fearon and the Boogie Brown Band lively up Nectar Lounge once again; this is always a good show if you don’t want to go too crazy but still want to get down and groove.
- Mount Eerie at The Vera Project comes very highly recommended as showcasing the true artistry of Phil Elverum not just some other crapola musician. It is all ages however, so you have been warned…
- For a sweaty Saturday night, head to Neumo’s for The Teenagers who will be filling the space with much pop mania and good vibes- even if they are still wearing training wheels.
- I love the High Dive and it’s gonna be bangin’ on Saturday night with powerhouses The Valley, Iceage Cobra, and the DT’s from Bellingham; if you like your rock and roll raw and dirty, this night was made for you.
- Snoochie Boochies 3 at the CHAC isn’t just a fevered dance party and record release party for DJ4NORML; they’re also donating all proceeds from the event to the effort to legalize marijuana, just in time for April 20th- Rick Steves would approve.
- To continue celebrating the annual stoner’s holiday, head down to Crimson C, the new club dujour, for the party whose name leaves no need for an explanation: We Thought If We Were Going To Throw A Party, Wee’d Need A Theme. Potheads dancing? This oughtta be good.
