Snowpocalypse Disappoints, Thursday Night Shows Excite: Deerhoof and Gimme Shelter

The snowpocalypse turned out to be a pretty big disappointment for Seattlites who like snow. However, there is one good thing about the stark absence of snow blanketing the city: you can still make it to the two awesome shows that are happening tonight!

First up is the “Gimme Shelter” event at Showbox tonight. It is a benefit show to end homelessness, and during weather like this, ending homelessness is more important than ever. The Gimme Shelter lineup is quite impressive if you like raucous, boot-stompin tunes: The Dusty 45s, Kasey Anderson & The Honkies, Star Anna, Tom Bennet & The Rolling Blackouts, Masy Ferguson, Rachel Flotard & Rusty Willoughby, Vince Mira, Zoe Muth, Mark Pickerel and Kristen Ward. Enough said.

For those of you who are feeling a little more quirky and experiemental, the always-entertaining group Deerhoof will be at Neumos.
