Nearly one year ago (January 27, 2007 to be exact), Hannah Levin and I were onhand at the vacant Phinney Ridge house that served as the location for Seattle's own Burn to Shine- the documentary project of Fugazi's Brendan Canty (previous cities covered include Wash-ington, D.C., Chicago, Louisville, Ky., and Portland, Ore.) which involves a handful of locally curated bands playing one song each in a building that is slated for imminent demolition. As Hannah details in her column from that week, Canty tapped Death Cab's Ben Gibbard as the curator for Seattle's, the DVD of which just dropped on our desks over here at the Weekly and includes live footage of the Gibbard selected bands playing live in the living room area of the about to be demo'd home. The final cut includes:
Spook the Horse, "Another New Year"
Harvey Danger, "Little Round Mirrors"
Tiny Vipers, "On This Side"
Blue Scholars, "Morning of America"
Dave Bazan, "Cold Beer and Cigarettes"
Bejamin Gibbard, "Brooken Yolk in Western Sky"
Eddie Vedder, "Can't Keep"
Minus the Bear, "Arctic Knights"
The Cave SIngers, "Called"
The Long Winters, "Departure"
Kinski, "Crybaby Blowout"
The Can't See, "Barfight"
Triumph of Lethargy Skinned Alive to Death, "Big Bed"
Jesse Sykes and the Sweet Hereafter, "The Air is Thin"
