    When: Wednesday, Oct. 17
    Where: The Tractor Tavern, Ballard 

    Notes by Aja Pecknold

    Fresh off a few week tour opening for Great Lake Swimmers, Arthur & Yu sounded tight as ever, with singer Grant Olsen’s voice sounding beautifully solid- ringing out clear as a bell- quite the contrast from the first show I saw them play at the Croc, which was one of their first as well.

    They’ve found some new friends in Toronto’s GLS (who look so refreshingly normal/un-band-y and put on a gorgeous set as well, alternating between full band and solo songs by guitar/vocalist Tony Dekker)l- which they demonstrated by all piling onstage for the night’s finale- an all-band jam out of Neil Young’s "Out on the Weekend," a warm and bittersweet send off to their time together.
