Weekly Best Bets: Seattle Concerts for the Week of 1/19

slm_week_jan192015

This is a big week for music in our little corner of the country. Just as we wipe the tears from our eyes from the farewell show at Chop Suey, we’re reminded that Seattle’s music scene is still very much alive and well. This week kicks off with a set from punk’s poet laureate Patti Smith. As if that wasn’t enough musical prowess so early in the week, that show is followed by a (pre-announed but still) surprise club show from Seattle’s claim-to-indie-fame Death Cab for Cutie. After a couple days to recover from all that musical goodness, we wrap the week with a set from Portland’s Loch Lomond opening for another legendary group, The Vaselines.

Does it really get much better than this?
