Speaking of Neptune shows, Eric Grandy was right on the money when he said that Battles come through Seattle more often than summertime does: STG just announced that the New York trio will be back in Seattle on October 12, headlining the Neptune. So, if you skipped Block Party yesterday to have some fun in the sun instead (I'm guilty, too), fear not.
Some more notable STG booking announcements as of this morning:
BUSH is playing the Neptune on September 15 (hell yeah, they still exist).
If you also missed Kurt Vile and the Violators at Block Party this weekend, they'll be opening for Bright Eyes at the Paramount on September 28.
EMA is opening the Wild Beasts show at the Neptune on October 7.
Death Cab for Cutie is playing the KeyArena on October 22, and The Head & the Heart will be opening.
