Bryan John Appleby at Neumos = A Must See Show + Another Reason to Watch That Video

Rarely ones to miss an opportunity to offer (an often unsolicited) recommendation to our friends about what videos they really “need” to see, it should come as no surprise that Christian Sorensen Hansen‘s name is a part of a majority of said conversations.

The days when we actually have a chance to point people to one of Christian’s videos organically rank among our favorites. As luck has it (as you likely have already guessed), today is one such day.

Bryan John Appleby, the Seattle-based purveyor of “indie-folk tinged Americana” and star of what is quite possibly Christian’s most visually stunning video yet (below), will be playing Neumos tonight as part of the one of the best all-local shows we’ve yet to see this year.

Be sure to get there early to see the young, self-described “baroque pop” band Tomten who will take the stage before Appleby and be sure to stick around for the smoothly constructed, bluesy pop songs of Motopony.

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.
