Snow in Seattle is rare, even in the thick of winter, but as it turns out, the stars have aligned and we’ll actually be getting some this October! Ok, perhaps it will be Miike Snow, and not Snow snow….but still cool, methinks, aaaaaaand…my friend Les just let me know there is a ticket waiting for me, one month from today @ the Showbox at the Market. Thanks Les! (and Kate)!
Actually, the band makes frequent appearances in Seattle, and has performed across the city on several occasions over the past year. I was lucky enough to make it to one of their shows last year with my friends Sean and Erica. The crowd was fantastic, and I think it has something to do with the odd persona of the oft-masked Swedish trio, Andrew Wyatt, Christian Karlsson and Ponstus Winnberg; the masks add to their mysterious stage presence while the ffffffffat beats and light show put everyone in a great mood.
As you can tell, their concerts are great, but don’t count out the work they do in the studio. They’ve done some work with Passion Pit, Peter Bjorn and John, as well as this excellent remix of Vampire Weekend’s The Kids Don’t Stand a Chance. Check them out, you won’t be disappointed.
