Three Great Shows, Only One Night

We try to narrow down the shows happening in Seattle on any given evening to one or two to make it a little easier for you to decide what to go out and see. Tonight is one of those nights where we just can’t cut down the list that far. Below we’ve highlighted three can’t miss shows happening this evening throughout the city!

We recommended Portland’s The Builders & The Butchers when they were in Seattle in February, but they’re back and we can’t resist. Their brand of Americana is chock full of macabre imagery and skillful instrumentation, and lead singer Ryan Sollee’s falsetto vocals are excellent. The band is known for their engaging shows, so head down to the Tractor tonight for their set, which also benefits Noise for the Needy.

The Local Strangers are new to our list of recommendations, but the alt-country duo is certainly worthy. Leader singer Aubrey Zoli has commanding yet delicate vocals, perfectly paired with the stringed stylings of her partner Matt Hart. Join them with openers Andrew Vait and The Elderly to celebrate the release of their new self-titled album at Columbia City Theater. (Did we mention this is the first ever Seattlest Music Presents show?)

They’re garagey. they’re raw, they’re Fox & The Law. If you’re in the mood to let your hair down and rock out tonight, head over to Chop Suey for a rowdy, lo-fi set from these Seattle natives.
