Cults New Album Teaser

As previously mentioned a few posts down, Cults will be performing at this year’s Capitol Hill Block Party and it’s perfect timing as they will be releasing their new album “Static” on October 15, 2013. The band released an album teaser today and though short, I am totally into it and am looking forward to hearing what they will be presenting for their sophomore album.

Trails and Ways – 3:15-3:45PM – Neumos

I think I fell in love with Trails and Ways last year because they reminded me so much of one of my favorite  bands here in Seattle. Their upbeat sounds and catchy tunes are enough to make anyone like them. Even though I started listening to them last year, I’ve always been interested in seeing them live and now …I was going to say  that I get to, but unfortunately, I have to miss this set due to another commitment. Worst. News. Ever. However, Sunday is always one of my favorite days because it’s a great end to the festival, but also everyone is just winding down. The high schoolers are burnt out from the weekend and everyone can just relax. We’ll see you there.

Hey Marseilles – 3:45-4:30PM – Main Stage

This local band from Seattle has come such a long way! I am so lucky to have been able to work alongside their lead singer Matt Bishop and am even more proud to see him and his band thriving right now. Even though they’ve played in Seattle more than a few times, I have never had the chance to see them live! Good for them for being selected to perform on the main stage though. Their latest album, “Lines We Trace” is one of my favorites from the year and as we all know, the real thing in person is always 10x better.

Cults – 5:00-5:45PM – Main Stage

Seeing Cults two years ago was one of my favorite moments from the Capitol Hill Block Party. I had the chance to see them up front (which I never do anymore) with my two friends Max and Mathew who ended up surprising me with their autographs after the show. It was such a treat and a memory (like all my memories from this fest) that I’ll always hold near and dear to my heart especially because I also had a chance to review them back then. The members of this band seem like such a sweet bunch of people and I am thrilled to hear their new album Static when it is released this fall. Two years ago, I watched them inside of Neumos and I am excited that this time around they’ll be playing for the masses on the Main Stage! UPGRADE!

The Flaming Lips – 8:15-10 – Main Stage

I have never seen The Flaming Lips live, but I’ve heard that they put on quite a show. Kevin says that we can’t miss it so I guess we’re going!

Favorite Event of the Year: Capitol Hill Block Party 2011

Two out of three days was just enough to make this festival not only the highlight of my summer, but the most memorable moment of the year. Who can turn down a weekend of great company, amazing live performances, free goodies, front row at Cults, stellar weather and meal breaks at all of my favorite restaurants just outside of the gates? You can’t.

Runner Up: Girl Talk at the Showbox SODO and being on stage!

Cults on Yo Gabba Gabba! – Singing About Hot Cocoa

One of my favorite bands of 2011, Cults, made an appearance on the Nick Jr. television show Yo Gabba Gabba! recently singing an entire song about hot cocoa. Some may find it to be cheesy because of their overenthusiastic lip synching and playing instruments with cocoa in hand, but I just find it downright stinkin’ cute!

Oh yes, the Christmas themed posts will not stop until after the holiday has passed.

Out on the Town: 10/9

One of my favorite groups is in town today playing with Foster the People tonight at Showbox at the Market, but since tickets are sold out, you can catch a performance from them at Easy Street Records in Queen Anne at 3:30 PM today!

Do it.

Let’s Be Friends Madeline Follin

Refinery 29 wrote a lovely post about Cults‘ singer Madeline Follin on her style and touring fashion today. It’s funny because in it she mentions how she generally picks 6-8 different dresses to bring with her in the van, but only wears about three of them – one of which includes the green lace above. While searching for a picture to use for this post, this green lace appeared multiple times when I typed in “Madeline Cults” – at least the girl is honest. After reading the feature, I kind of wish I could be friends with her though. Why is she so cool?! Oh well, at least I get to look at her band’s autograph everyday when I’m doing werk at my desk.
