Hey Seattle Weekly Reverb readers, I've been asked to step in for Chris Kornelis as Reverb Guest Editor for the next couple of weeks. I'll be providing a nice selection of blog posts, some of which might contain a gram of truth, about music and whatever, plus some interviews and tangents of every sort. I think the Weekly is under the mistaken impression that since I'm a musician every random thing that occurs to me to talk about must loosely fall under the heading of "music". This is pure folly.
Tonight I'm playing at Neumos at a benefit for U.S. Senator Patty Murray. It is a fantastic line-up of local talent. They asked us to play "folk music", giving the impression that no one in the Patty Murray camp has ever heard a lick of indie-rock music, so many of the performers are going to be honoring their request with some "folky" choices. Here's the bill:7pm Doors.
7.30 Opening Speeches
7.45-7.55 Alex Robert (Black Whales)
8-8.10 Eric Anderson
8.15-8.30 Patty Murray Speech
8.35-8.45 Josh Morrison
8.50-9.05 Young Evils
9.10-9.25 Say Hi (acoustic set)
9.30-9.45 Tomo (Grand Hallway)
9.50-10.05 Sera Cahoone
10.10-10.25 John Roderick
10.30-10.50 Presidents of the USA
Now, whether or not you're a Democrat, I don't think there's any question that Patty Murray is the only POSSIBLE candidate for whom to cast your vote. Her opponent looks like he's wearing a rubber mask and robbing banks in the movie Point Break. Hope to see you at the show tonight, and keep checking back into Reverb to see what's cooking.
