We are on the way towards fall, and in Seattle, that means a lot of great live music. And rain, probably.
This Thursday at Barboza, check out Portland choral-pop rockers Ages and Ages. Their new album Something to Ruin came out in August and was recorded at Modest Mouse front man Isaac Brock's Ice Cream Party Studios.
Seattle singer-songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews celebrates her new album release Thursday at The Tractor. Here's a taste of the title track from Andrews' brand new album "Honest Life".
For a very different show, check out Philadelphia hit makers Hall & Oates, Friday at White River Amphitheater. Fun fact: this Hall & Oates song was played not all that long ago on KEXP as part of our De La Soul day, because it is one of many songs sampled on 3 Feet High and Rising.
One more reason to go to that Hall & Oates show: the incredible miss Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings open the show, and with her health issues it is important to catch her show whenever you have the chance.
Okay, back here in Seattle, check out local rockers Evening Bell Friday at The Sunset. Here's Evening Bell on a recent live performance on KEXP. They'll be celebrating a new release at their show on Friday.
Speaking of new releases, and from local bands who have hit the big time, The Head and the Heart drop their new album on Friday. Here's the lead single "All We Ever Knew" from The Head and the Heart's third studio album, Signs of Light. The Head and the Heart met at a series of open mics at the Conor Byrne in Ballard, and KEXP is proud to be one of the first to play their music.
