Revel in Yesteryear: Ben Kweller with Pete Yorn at Showbox SoDo Tonight

While nothing excites us quite as much as finding our new favorite band, like everyone we know, we’re prone to nostalgia from time to time. If you happened to be of high school or college age during the past decade, chances are you’ve got a least a song of tonight’s Showbox SoDo lineup on your iPod.

We’re particularly excited about seeing the infamously baby-faced Ben Kweller, who has only enhanced his quirky take on pop rock over the years. Though Kweller added a distinctive twang to his catalogue with 2009’s Changing Horses, his impressive mastery of hooks guarantees tonight’s set will be full of all of the sing-alongs you (and the younger version of yourself) would expect.

Kweller will be joined by another fan favorite, Pete Yorn, who always puts on a fun, swoon-worthy performance. Don’t miss these two crooners in SoDo tonight.

Hi-Fi Dance Party with Newcomers Viper Creek Club Tonight at Neumos

This is no April Fool’s gag… you really ARE lucky enough to have two great shows to choose from tonight!

One local band we’ve been excited about since last year, but has remained largely under the radar, is hi-fi dance-pop duo Viper Creek Club. They layer melodic, singable lyrics over trancey and dancey electronic rhythms – a perfect combination for your next dance party. Or, of course, the impending dance party that will ensue tonight at Neumos.

If you’re in the mood to welcome April’s rainy wrath by getting your groove on, tonight’s show is a must see. Make sure you arrive early as VCC will be joined by members of some of our other favorite NW dance bands (including MAD RAD, Truckasaurus, Fresh Esspresso and more).

4/1 Viper Creek Club + guests @ Neumos :: Doors at 8:00 PM :: Tickets are $10 :: 21+
