Lucky Ducks: Four Great Shows Tonight in the Emerald City

Seattleites: Today is your lucky day! Not only was Mt. Rainier totally visible this morning, but there are so many good shows happening tonight we could only narrow it down to FOUR. It’s going to be a tough decision tonight, so choose your show carefully! We have short previews below for our recommended shows…


In the mood for lively synth-pop? Cut Copy at Showbox SoDo is right up your alley. The Australian group channels your inner 80’s for a fun, dynamic set of electronic goodness.


One of the newest darlings in the indie-pop scene, Joy Formidable has been lauded as the next big thing out of London. Their brand of punky vocals and rockin’ instrumentation will have you dancing all night long at The Crocodile. Of interest to PacNW music enthusiasts, Anacortes’ own, Chris Walla-endorsed The Lonely Forest will open. (As a side note, the below music video makes us feel a little motion sick…)


Lots of people found out about The Submarines thanks to a nice little iPhone commercial. All advertising aside, the duo produces light, fun bubble-gum pop that’s sure to bring a smile to your face. You can see The Submarines tonight at an intimate show at The Tractor Tavern.


Last but certainly not least on our list of recommended shows is a relatively new band out of Northern Ireland. The baby-faced trio that is Two Door Cinema Club will be at Showbox at the Market tonight with electrified indie rock from their debut LP, Tourist History.
