There's a good chance that the Moondoggies are going to be riding a decent-sized buzz into the summer months. Aside from the fact that we've been writing about these hometown heroes and shooting video of these guys for awhile now, Austin Scaggs over at Rolling Stone appears to be a fan as well. Not only did he write about them last October in print, but he's taken a shine to giving them blog love on that site as well. This week, he's encouraging all of Manhattan (and that's a lot of people) to come see their upcoming show in New York City on April 25th at Crash Mansion. There's a bunch of comments from Rolling Stone readers about how awesome these guys are -- and if you actually click on the link above, you'll see a portion of the URL reads seattle-music-is-fn-awesome. Hey, it's the truth. And if the right music insiders and writers show up to their Manhattan gig, who knows what'll happen next.
I'd like to invite all of Seattle to check out the 'Doggies upcoming show at the Crocodile on May 9th. I don't see too many local dates on their schedule so take advantage of catching this band on the rise while you still can. The above video is from the One Shot Seattle series and captures the band playing "Undertaker." Check it out.
