As a recent Weekly cover story pointed out, Tuesday nights are a great time to catch up-and-coming Seattle acts. Tonight is no exception, as two young bands--one with an album released a few weeks ago and the other with a debut album on the way--are opening for more established acts from the UK.
The Lonely Forest released their third album, Arrows, on March 22, and there are two opportunities tonight to catch the Anacortes quartet's melodic indie pop in person. The group will be opening for Welsh rockers The Joy Formidable at The Croc following a free in-store performance at Easy Street Records in Queen Anne at 6 p.m. Tickets for the show at the Croc cost $12, and doors open at 8 p.m.
Also on a Tuesday night undercard are recent Barsuk signees the Globes, whose debut album, future self, hits stores two weeks from today. They'll be displaying their unique, cerebral brand of experimental rock in support of Northern Ireland's Two Door Cinema Club at Showbox at the Market. Tickets prices are somewhat steeper than the Lonely Forest show ($19.50?$21), and doors open at 7 p.m.
