On February 19, 2013, Seattle’s Showbox at the Market will play host to EELS, and anyone who knows anything about indie rock will tell you that it’s destined to be one of the year’s early highlights.
Not only have EELS contributed to some of the best TV and movie soundtracks in recent memory (Shrek, True Blood), but they also have ten fantastic studio albums under their belts. Their latest, Wonderful, Glorious, already looks set to live up to its title, and the accompanying tour is already becoming one of the year’s must-see live experiences. Band leader Mark Oliver Everett (‘E’) is a genuine rock treasure; the last time they were in Seattle, witnessing his hobo-Elvis stage presence was worth the ticket price alone.
You can read our full preview of the EELS show here, but if you want to check it out for yourself then look no further.
