New Year, New Music! Check out Pickwick and PonyHomie This Week

If you need a good New Year’s Resolution for 2013, we recommend making a commitment to seeing more live music. While good shows tend to be a little more few and far between this time of year than during regular tour seasons, there’s plenty of good music to get you started on the right foot this year. This week alone boasts a couple can’t-miss sets.

Sultry, soulful folk pop with retro sensibilities yet totally modern composition.

If you are still looking for awesome plans for New Year’s Eve, we recommend joining the fun at Showbox with Seattle’s own Pickwick. The unassuming band of boys packs an unexpected punch and will have you on your feet all night as you welcome 2013. The show is expected to sell out, so grab your tickets while you still can.

Up-and-coming dark dance-pop trio that is finally coming into its own with a fantastic new album featuring psychedelic and house tinges .

You’ve probably seen us tout PonyHomie time and time again. And there’s a good reason for it – they are one of our go-to electro-pop picks. If you have yet to check them out, this is the night to do so. With a brand new album hot off the presses and a sound that has matured like a fine wine over the past couple years, this show will serve as yet another great kick-off to 2013.

For a look ahead at some of the other great shows coming up in the first few months of 2013, be sure to check out our freshly updated calendar.

More Best Shows of January and February 2012 [Calendar Update!]

If your long weekend has been anything like ours, it’s involved inordinate amounts of couch time in which we sat mesmerized by the first hint that Mother Nature hadn’t actually forgotten about winter in Seattle.

Thankfully, our sloth paid off in the form of being able to spend some extra time combing through the upcoming shows listings to find the absolute best concerts that will entice us (and you?) to venture out into the world.

While we, and pretty much all music fans, are quick to pronounce affection toward the summer festival season, we’ll even more immediately acknowledge the fact that the next few weeks will be extremely hard to beat.

A quick scan through our calendar page will show why the upcoming month, complete with shows from long-time favorites like Nada Surf, John Roderick, Damien Jurado and John K. Samson intermixed with some of our favorite newer acts like Youth Lagoon, Bombay Bicycle Club and Memoryhouse, have us so excited about the prospect of live music once again. We’ll see you out there!

As always, you’ll be able to read our take on why we recommend the band and listen to a song or two on the day of the show.
