Music Spotlight: Viper Creek Club

The other day I made a post about Mad Rad’s remixed song “The Youth Die Young” featuring Viper Creek Club, but that was actually my first time hearing about VCC. I decided to check out their stuff and what I found was really no surprise. Mat and Brandon are a two-piece indie/electro duo out of Seattle. They’re currently unsigned, but these guys are so talented that I feel like that change could happen at any time. They will also be playing at the Mad Rad release show at Neumos next week. Unfortunately, it’s 21+ sorry young ones! The song of the day is “Eliza.” I’ve had it on repeat since yesterday. The beginning of this song sounds like the theme from the UK version of Skins also. Enjoy!

This is going to be a fantastic show. I’ve been a huge fan of Andrew’s for quite some time now. If you need a comparison, I would say he is most similar to Isaac Slade of  The Fray and Gavin DeGraw. Check him out!

Let’s Talk Shows: Reviews

Last weekend, I had the chance to see a private performance from Minus the Bear at the Vera Project because they were promoting the Pepsi Refresh Everything Project. I didn’t get a chance to talk about the show in a previous post because I was so pumped about meeting Suchin Pak though! My bad, sowwy!

It’s been a few years since I last saw them perform. The first time I saw them, I was w/ my best friend at Neumos on a school night. Reckless behavior. Before they got on stage, they set up plush white tigers on top of the speakers to set the mood. I can’t remember  if they were promoting Planet of Ice or if it was the album before. I do, however, remember attending  a laser show for Planet of Ice to preview the whole CD before it came out in the summer of 2007. Minus the Bear didn’t need the tigers at their recent performance though.  Since I saw them last, their sound has matured and so did they naturally. They have come a long way since Pachuca Sunrise, which is still one of my favorite songs.  There is more structure and cohesiveness apparent throughout their entire new CD Omni. For Planet of Ice, we heard bionic and futuristic sounds that different from their previous two albums. With Omni, each part within a song – intro, chorus, bridge is emphasized. They’ve also upped their game in terms of performance. This past week, they performed on Jimmy Kimmel and I couldn’t be more proud of them.

Along with a show review, I guess I’ll give you a CD review too.

Best songs:

  • My Time
  • Summer Angel
  • The Thief
  • Into the Mirror feat. Rachel Flotard of Visqueen

Portugal. The Man

Way to exceed my expectations this past Friday! It had been three years since I last saw them and even back then I had decided that they were one of the best performers I had ever seen. Not much has changed. They have been blowing up all year performing at some of the biggest names in music festivals including this year’s Coachella, Sasquatch, and Bonnaroo. They began their entrance with a thick fog emerging off the stage and into the crowd. It wasn’t long before the lasers appeared, which really got the crowd excited. [myself included]  They performed tracks from their 2010 album American Ghetto as well as last year’s The Satanic Satanist and even songs from when I first started listening to them nearly four years ago.

Portugal. The Man – Thanks for reminding me of what I have been missing from my life.

Noise For the Needy

I didn’t want to leave any festival out! I realize this is coming up pretty quickly, but I was re-reminded of Noise For the Needy today when I walked past Neumos and The Album Leaf on this poster caught my eye. While Noise For the Needy is no Bumbershoot or Capitol Hill Block Party there is no reason why we shouldn’t recognize it as a festival.

Here’s what you need to know: They are are a non-profit organization that supports a charity every year and hopes to raise both awareness and funds through performances by both local and mainstream acts. This year they will feature about 60 acts from June 9-13 for Teen Feed.

I used to work at a non-profit a few years back that hosted teen feeds and I cannot even begin to tell you what kind of impact it has had on the local community. There are many teenagers that aren’t as fortunate as we are and one meal can go a long way. Everyone deserves to be fed.

For more information on this event please click here

Bands you definitely don’t want to miss: The Album Leaf, The Maldives, Visqueen, and Tiny Vipers

Lonely Valentiners:

You will love again!”

As a bonus, by coming to the Valentine’s Day bash, you will receive a a Cupcake Royale Deathcake! If you don’t go home with a date after this event, at least you have something better :)

Doors are at 8. Mingle until the show at 9:30. $6 Advance Tickets and $8 at the door.
