A Tribute to the Kinks

“Whenever the Beatles vs. Stones question comes up I always have to go with the Kinks,” says local rock marimba player Erin Jourgensen. “They seem the most honest to me somehow.” Jourgensen isn’t alone in her assessment; Seattle is full of notable musicians who love the Kinks. Consequently, the line-up for tonight’s show is stacked fat. Along with Jourgensen’s unorthodox renditions of “Young and Innocent Days” and “Come Dancing,” the benefit for Musicares will feature a performance of The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society by the Quaifes, an all-star band led by Kwab Copeland that includes Bill Herzog (Jesse Sykes and the Sweet Hereafter) and Dan Peters of Mudhoney. Rounding out the bill are Shelby Earl, Rusty Willoughby, Sean Nelson and Guided by Dan, a new project that includes members of Mudhoney and Mother Love Bone. HANNAH LEVIN
