Shows That Will Be Overshadowed By Capitol Hill Block Party

Unfortunate timing, guys! Especially since I, for one, am going to Block Party. But if you don't feel like braving the raucous mob of scenesters at Capitol Hill Block Party, here are a few more laid-back alternatives worthy of your consideration

TONIGHT:

Nicole Atkins & the Sea at Triple Door Mainstage

10 p.m., $17 adv, $20 dos.

According to Ma'chell D-L, Nicole Atkins is possibly the next Amy Winehouse. Let's hope she doesn't follow in Winehouse's footsteps....that is, turn into an emaciated crack addict with emphysema and a severe case of the crazies.

The Watson Twins, Tim Fite, Jen Wood at Tractor Tavern

9 p.m., $10 adv, $12 dos.

Pretty ballads for you, with folk songstress Jen Wood opening! What more could you want?

SATURDAY:

Little Pieces at Easy Street Records in West Seattle

9:30 p.m., $5, 21+ (like all after-hours shows there)

I went to see Little Pieces at Re-Bar the very week I moved to Seattle, and I say to you, Herman Jolly's sunny, sparkly new pop band is not to be ignored.

The goddamn Melvins at Showbox at the Market.

8 p.m., $20 adv, $22 dos.
