Saturday’s Best: Experimental Indie Rock Overload at Neumos

pattern_daniel

When it comes it comes to pairing interesting sounds with flawless vocal harmonies, you’d be hard pressed to find any bands out there matching what Daniel Rossen has been able to create with Grizzly Bear and Department of Eagles.

As luck would have it, Pattern is Movement, one such band that maintains that tough balance of wildly experimental tendencies with moments of sonic beauty, happens to be in town the same night but on a different bill. Thankfully for those looking to maximizing your adventurous rock intake this Saturday, you’ll only need to go up or down some stairs to catch the other act.

3/22 (Saturday) Daniel Rossen @ Neumos

Fortunately for us Seattleites, KEXP recognizes that musical kinship between the Emerald City and Snjóland, and the radio station is celebrating the return of Reykjavik Calling this weekend. They explain this year’s fest in their own words:

Seattle’s Best Shows of the Week [week of 5/6]

You all must have been really good this year, because summer decided to show up early in the Emerald City. Prolonged glimpses of nice weather make us think of happy hours outdoors, dogs wearing sunglasses and extended evening sunlight. It also makes us want to get out and actually do stuff, which appears to be the case for pretty much every other human and non-human Seattle resident. If you want to get out and do stuff with the rest of us, we suggest checking out one (or all) of the below shows this week! Just leave your dog at home.
