Team Up is at it Again: Songs of Summer Tonight at Triple Door

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: we love music for a cause. When artists use their art form to raise awareness and benefit nonprofit organizations, our hearts nearly burst.

One of Seattle’s fastest growing and most trendy giving organizations, Team Up for Nonprofits, specializes in making such partnerships happen. They identify local worthy causes, and find local amazing artists to throw concerts to raise awareness and funds. It’s a formula that can’t be beat.

Tonight’s show, hosted at the illustrious Triple Door, benefits the Rainier Valley Food Bank. The show boasts a jam-packed lineup that includes Lemolo, Noah Gundersen, Big Sur, Ghosts I’ve Met, Sons of Warren Oates, Hannalee, Brad Loomis, Gabriel Mintz, Steve Norman, Phil O’Sullivan, and Matt and Mike Gervais.

As if the bands weren’t enough to entice you to attend, every ticket sold will provide $240 worth of food to people in need in Rainier Valley. Help your neighbors, hear some tunes, and head to the Triple Door when you get off work.

6/14 Songs of Summer: Lemolo, Noah Gundersen, Big Sur, Ghosts I’ve Met, Sons of Warren Oates, Hannalee, Brad Loomis, Gabriel Mintz, Steve Norman, Phil O’Sullivan, and Matt and Mike Gervais @ the Triple Door :: Doors at 6:00 PM :: Tickets are $30 at the door :: All Ages

The 3 Best Friday Night Shows in Seattle [Something for Everyone Edition]

This April is turning out to be one of the strongest music months we’ve seen in quite some time. Luckily for those who like their live music nights out without an early alarm clock chaser the following AM will be happy that this weekend offers quite a few solid shows that are wholly worthy of your consideration.

We always like to make the decision as painless as possible by recommending one top pick for any given evening. Of course, we stray from that philosophy every so often. Tonight is one of those nights.

Our top pick goes to The Polyphonic Spree at Neumos. If we were betting types, we’d put our chips on this twelve-year old symphonic choral pop group putting on the most entertaining show of the night.

We also can’t overlook the excellent lineup at the Sunset that’s sandwiches Portland’s retro-leaning dream pop group Radiation City with two excellent local country-tinged rock bands. Sons of Warren Oates will open and The Legendary Oaks will close the night.

Last but not least, the legendary David Gedge-led British indie rock group The Wedding Present will be delighting fans with their 21 year-old classic Sea Monsters at the Crocodile.

4/6 The Polyphonic Spree, New Fumes @ Neumos, Doors at 8pm, $19

4/6 Legendary Oaks, Radiation City, Sons Of Warren Oates @ Sunset, Doors at 9pm, Show at 10pm, $8

4/6 The Wedding Present, Pinky Piglets, Zarigani @ Crocodile, Doors at 8pm, $18 incl fees
