Tonight’s Best Bets: Pickwick at the Tractor, Joseph Giant at the High Dive

While we usually try to keep our recommendations to the absolute best activity of the evening, there are many nights when the cornucopia of audio choices can’t be narrowed down to a single pick. As it turns out, tonight’s one of those nights. After much deliberation, we’ve pared our picks down to two bests, both who happen to be newer additions to the Seattle music scene.

Pickwick at Tractor Tavern. As the one of the most buzzworthy blue-eyed soul groups of the latest funk/soul revival, Pickwick are sure to have the crowds swooning, swaying and having a great time in general.

Joseph Giant at the High Dive. If you’re more in the mood for up-tempo country-tinged rock, head to the High Dive to catch Joseph Giant, a band fronted by one of favorites, Joe Syverson, formerly of the Final Spins,

Regardless of your choice, you’ll end up seeing one of Seattle’s best up and coming acts. If you’re looking for groups whose tunes have been taking up residency in your iPod for years, there’s plenty of great choices there as well. If you’re feeling more sentimental, consider Blue Scholars at Neumos, Kid Cudi at WaMu Theater, Face to Face at the Showbox, Bell X1 at the Croc or Grant Hu of Husker Du at the Funhouse.
