Seattle Showcase of the Week: Elba’s Album Release Tonight at The Croc

As The Dismemberment Plan, the Pixies and Modest Mouse rank among our list of favorites, we’ve been paying close attention to Seattle’s Elba, who cites those three bands as some of their major influences. If you too are a fan of The D. Plan’s polyrhythms or Frank Black’s choppy, boyish vocal style, we bet you’ll enjoy tonight’s album release show at the Crocodile.

If that weren’t enough, the always entertaining, enormously talented Gabriel Mintz will take the stage after local power-pop favorites The Quit. Get to the Croc early, as we recommend all three bands in this, the liveliest Seattle showcase of the week.

Update: You can listen to the EP for free at http://elba.bandcamp.com/ (Thanks for the tip, Nick.)

Below are videos for all three:

  1. Hey guys, thanks so much for mentioning our show! I couldn’t find a contact email on the site, but I was hoping to get in contact with you so I can send a copy of the new EP. Also, we’ll be playing Friday, February 11th at the Comet. We’d love to see you there!-Nick and Elba
