Just last month at our annual REVERB Fest, we (plus KEXP and all you voters) hooked up Massy Ferguson with a trip to Iceland to represent Seattle and play at the Iceland Airwaves Festival in Reykjavík.
Iceland is back on our minds tonight -- the Crocodile's hosting a Sister City Showcase: Reykjavík Calling. Performing will be some of our local favorites -- Rachel Flotard & Rusty Willoughby, Jason Dodson, Nathan Wade, and, of course, Reverb's own guest editor John Roderick. All familiar faces, but you'll also be introduced to the Icelandic artists Mugison, Sin Fang Bous of Seabear, Lay Low, Pétur Ben. Yes, their names are hard to spell, but so are Sigur Ros and we still love them. I was checking out some of Mugison's music and came across the above video + song, "I Want You." It's a rocking song -- clangy, twangy, and squealing with rage and pathos.
The show tonight is 21+, starts at 8pm, and it's free! Which is more than we can say for most things to do on a Friday night.
