Whoever made the call to pair Feral Children with See Me River is a quality human being with awfully good ears. As far as primal and spiritually satisfying local bills go, it doesnt get much better than this. Feral Children may be from Maple Valley, but they sound like they operate from some gloriously macabre, punk rock underworld where both Patti Smith and Vivaldi would feel comfortable. See Me River is the dark, folk-informed brainchild of Aviation Records owner/Cha Cha music booker Kerry Zettel, who is arguably one the most talented songwriters this city has at the moment. As if that wasnt enough, this is also the second-ever show for Brawley Banks, a new project featuring Justin Schwartz and Jorum Young from Cobra High original Sunnyday Real Estate/Foo Fighters drummer William Goldsmith that already has a huge, huge buzz surrounding it.
