Thank Our Lucky Stars! Another Night with Nada Surf [Saturday at the Neptune]

As we wrote last month, “Matthew Caws has always been the lyricist who seemingly captures the very same highs and lows we feel by placing them poetically into nearly-prefect expressions of failed dreams often sprinkled with glimmers of hope.”

Way back then, we strongly recommended both Matthew’s solo set at the Sasquatch Launch Party as well as the headlining set with his band at the Tractor later that same evening. This weekend, however, we present with you a much easier option that doesn’t require a cross-town, mid-show scramble to ensure you’re not missing a second of your favorite Nada Surf songs.

Whether you’re a longtime fan or not, do yourself a favor and listen to a track from the band’s newest album The Stars are Indifferent to Astronomy, watch the video for “When I Was Young” below and check out the live experience in the U-District tomorrow night.

Tonight, We Recommend Spending Time with Nada Surf’s Matthew Caws

Matthew Caws has always been the lyricist who seemingly captures the very same highs and lows we feel by placing them poetically into nearly-prefect expressions of failed dreams often sprinkled with glimmers of hope.

As such, we’re thrilled to learn that Caws will be playing three shows in the very near future. As luck has it, two shows – one solo and one with his band Nada Surf – happen to take place tonight.

While we’d be hard pressed to pick one over the other, we can wholeheartedly recommend that you spend your evening with Matthew Caws one way or the other.

Caws will play the highly anticipated Sasquatch Launch Party tonight and will hit the stage directly before headliner Junip, which features fellow noted lyricist and favorite understated vocalist Jose Gonzalez. Party kicks off at 8:00 p.m. at the University District’s Neptune Theatre.

If you’re more excited about seeing Caws with Nada Surf or perhaps are just more of a Ballard fan, you’ll be happy to know that the Brooklyn veterans of intelligent indie rock will be headlining the Tractor tonight as well. Say Hi will open with a solo set. Doors at 9:00 P.M.

Lastly, if tonight just isn’t going to pan out for you, rest assured at Nada Surf will return again to the Neptune on 3/24 as headliners with An Horse opening.

2/2 Sasquatch! Launch Party with Junip, Matthew Caws and The Physics @ Neptune Theatre :: 8:00 p.m. :: Tickets are $15 :: All Ages

2/2 Nada Surf / Say Hi @ Tractor Tavern :: Doors at 9:00 p.m. :: SOLD OUT :: 21+
