Best Seattle Shows of the Week [June 17]


If your weekend was anything like ours, you need a weekend to recover from that weekend. While we sadly can’t grant you that wish, we can hope to make your week just a bit better by pointing out some great audio cures to whatever ails you. This week, we recommend the full spectrum, from new to old, to normal-ish to highly bizarre and everything else in between. Enjoy.

6/17 (Monday) Joseph Arthur, Rene Lopez @ Triple Door

The acclaimed singer-songwriter powers into his second decade with his trademark blend of power pop, balladry and poetry.

6/19 (Wednesday) The Front Bottoms, Weatherbox @ Vera

The always-emotive acoustic punk band brings their surprisingly danceable talk-sing rock to Seattle’s all-ages mecca

6/20 John Grant, Judson Clairborne @ Barboza

Head to the subterranean Neumos for the most beautiful, highly-quirky songs you’ll hear all year

6/21 (Friday) Battleme, River Giant, Smokey Brights @ Sunset Tavern [Noise for the Needy]

See some of Seattle’s finest purveyors of countrified rock play on a great lineup for an excellent cause

6/22 (Saturday) Camera Obscura, Marissa Nadler @ Showbox at the Market

Female-fronted emotionally-charged pop rock from modern Scottish legends
