Even though we’re still in the early days of June, this first week is already packing a punch when it comes to music to see. Some new and old favorites are gracing us with their presence this week. Our advice? Get some sunshine and see some music!
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.
There have been lots of April Fool’s pranks swirling around the interwebs today, but fear not, dear readers. We wouldn’t lead you astray! The following folks are actually scheduled to play in our fair city this week, all joking aside. April is off with a bang!
Music from Scandinavia and northern Europe is known for it’s unique instrumentation and large, dramatic crescendos. Tonight, however, we recommend a Scandinavian act that sounds a little closer to home.
Kristian Matsson, a.k.a. The Tallest Man on Earth, hails from Sweden, but plays some of the prettiest American folk-inspired tunes found anywhere. Inspired by the likes of Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger, Matsson’s raw vocals and intricate guitarwork sound like music born here, rather than across the pond.
The Tallest Man on Earth will be joined by Strand of Oaks at the Moore Theatre.
9/9 The Tallest Man on Earth / Strand of Oaks @ The Moore Theatre :: 7:00 PM :: Tickets are $22.50 :: All Ages
