Autumn is in the air. The leaves are ready to turn, the clouds are back from their summer break, the kids are back to tuning out teachers and not just their parents, pumpkin spices have begun their full assault on all our senses and the Seahawks are winning our city admirers (and haters) in a whole new way.

…And best of all, autumn tour season is in full swing for us audiophiles. Check out this week’s best shows in the Emerald City:

The Prolific Elba Release Their Second and Best of Year at High Dive Tonight

While we’ve been Elba enthusiasts for years, it’s really been the band’s output over the past year that’s made us even more excited about the band. Sure, for most musicians you get street-cred by claiming to love the early stuff but there’s something to be said for getting to hear a band when they’re really hitting their stride. With January’s release of Diplodocus and even more so with the band’s brand-new self-titled, the band has really put their own stamp on their take on Modest Mouse/Pixies-influenced indie rock that we’ve enjoyed for what seems like forever.

If you’re already a fan or just like what you hear below, be sure to head over to Fremont’s High Dive tonight for a great-lineup that includes Ravenna Woods’ Matt Badger as well as fine acts from Austin and Portland.

Out of the Blue: Motopony at High Dive Tonight

223_motopony

Every once in a while, an amazing band pops up out of nowhere and we think to ourselves, “How have we not been hearing about this band for ages?” These bands tend to produce a sound that is much more mature than the years that the band has actually been in existence.

One such act is Motopony, fronted by Daniel Blue of Tacoma. He hasn’t been a musician for long, however his music consists of smoothly constructed, bluesy pop songs. By being catchy without being cheesy and relying heavily on Blue’s own one-of-a-kind vocals, we became immediate fans. Record label tinyOGRE was apparently also infatuated, since they signed Motopony earlier this month. Motopony is headlining at the High Dive tonight, supported by The Directory and Zach Fleury – the perfect Wednesday night lineup if you ask us.
