Red and I are back at it again. I’m so excited about this one I actually got that self-satisfied feeling that I believe some people call “pride” or “smugness.” Really, I’m just pleased as punch that we can bring together such a range of musical geniuses (yes, I said it) in one place for you all to hear. So. Without further ado:
The Ghosts Project, Jill Tracy, Nathaniel Johnstone,
Magpie Killjoy, Schrödinger’s Cat, and DJ Q
October 5, 2008 at 7:30 pm
The Little Red Studio
750 Harrison St, Seattle WA
Free refreshments provided, including custom chocolates by Naftali.
If you’ve never seen or heard of any of these people, let me completely fail to convey how awesome they are. I’ve never been good at music. But after spending most of my existence around people who are, I can at least discern between people who are technically good, who are inspired, who are innovative, or who are just having a good time. And each of these individuals is all of the above. The songs Paul has pulled out of his Loves (his violins, his viola) have made me cry on occasion. The rhythms Davis can get out of a drum set make my brain fuse to itself. Jill can make me feel dark and sensual on a single note. Nathan makes me curse his name when he jokingly pulls a new song out of thin air. Magpie and Brandon are both so good as to cause me to turn around on the street to give them my food money. Qais’s taste in music constantly has me asking “what is this?” in the best of possible ways, and Nafalti chocolates make my mouth weep with joy (if you were at the Anachrotechnofetishism show and had a chocolate, you know what I mean).
So yeah. It’s going to be a pretty kick-ass show.
Contact me via e-mail if you want to help, want to attend but can’t necessarily afford it, have questions about booze options, etc. This is going to be amazing, but Red and I are also rekindling the idea of community here in Seattle. It takes a good network of people to make these events even better. If you’re that kind of person, let me know.
