Hot Bodies in Motion + Kris Orlowski + Smokey Brights = A Pre-Thanksgiving Treat at the Tractor

If you’re looking to find an excuse to break free from out-of-town family who’ve kicked you to that less-than-cushy air bed you regretfully picked up slightly used from Craiglist, a trip to the Tractor tonight will be just what that doctor and your ailing back ordered.

In addition to being Kris Orlowski‘s highly anticipated album release show, the all-local lineup kicks off with Smokey Brights and concludes with Hot Bodies in Motion. You’ll find the opener and headliner feature smooth-voiced frontmen along with exceedingly capable backing musicians who are prone to lay down grooves that will force even the most stationary crowds into sways and foot-tapping at the very least. From Orlowski himself, expect a set that exhibits his David Bazan-influenced vocal style and pensive lyrics.

Be sure to get there around 9:30 or so, so you don’t miss a song from three local bands with arguably the most widespread appeal of any groups calling Seattle home today.

Hot Bodies in Motion for a Good Cause at The Croc

Like more than a few of you (no doubt), we were first introduced to Hot Bodies in Motion by none other than Mr. Guerrilla Candy himself Travis Hay.

In addition to writing up a compelling “get to know them” post in January, his fantastic launch party for the rebirth of the gone-to-soon Ear Candy blog positioned the band amongst the city’s best new and new-ish acts. Hay featured the band promintently along with a stellar set of his other favorite groups, including the much lauded and sonically kindred My Goodness.

Head to Belltown tonight, as the band that is neck and neck with My Goodness when it comes to the most comparisons to The Black Keys, will be headlining The Crocodile for a benefit for The Service Board.
