The last time we wrote an “Out on the Town” post was back in 2016! 2019 is all about bringing back our usual posts apparently. Really though, this post is a throwback to the two things I love in Seattle music. Since I’ve gotten older, going “out on the town” isn’t something I do as often. I’m not even going to be able to attend this event, but it’s so good that I had to share. I’d be doing a disservice to you all if I didn’t.
For one night, Death Cab for Cutie and Odesza will come together for what is sure to be an amazing evening. These two groups are so different, but if you’re from Seattle, you likely are a fan of both just by nature.
From Death Cab for Cutie’s Facebook Page:
Bellingham and WWU is where it all began. We have so many memories of house shows, The Showoff Gallery, The 3B, Red Square and KUGS, all places we met friends and found our community. All places vital to the start of our band. And as we have continued on, it’s been amazing to see and hear so much music continue to flow out of Bellingham too.
So when we met ODESZA, our bond of being “from Bellingham” was an instant connection. We know the same spots, we hiked the same trails, and we share a similar spirit that our days living there allowed to grow. It was only natural that we thought “let’s play a show together and celebrate our starts.”
Seattle friends of mine, do what you do best: support local music. You better believe that if I were still at home that I would be here. This is definitely not something to be missed.
