Did I say chumps? Don’t freak out people, just trying to get your attention, and rightfully so with a show like this. I haven’t seen a show at the downtown Hard Rock Cafe since I saw Limbeck play there last year, really like this venue for shows. Saturday, February 12 there is going to be an outstanding night of music there featuring four top-notch Valley bands: Factories; Tugboat; Source Victoria and the guest of honor, The Other 49!
I have seen Tugboat once and saw Audra, Bryan and Duffy when they were still playing together in Underwater Getdown. Both bands opened for The Other 49 at separate shows I saw, Tugboat at The Rogue and Underwater Getdown at the Rhythm Room. I am pretty stoked to see Tugboat again and looking forward to seeing Factories for the first time!
“You write about Source Victoria all the time on your blog.” Someone told me that a while ago and before writing this piece I counted nine times, not including any of the times I have included the band in a monthly concert post or post from one of the SilverPlatter.info radio shows. TOO BAD! I love this band and never get tired of seeing them live. I think it is ultra cool they are playing this show. Source and The Other 49 are two of my three favorite local bands (you all know what the third band is), so seeing them play together is quite a treat. Now if that new album would just come out … 😉
I am both extremely excited and seriously bummed about this show from The Other 49. Excited because I have not seen them play in a while and am a huge fan of their style of epic indie rock, a la Juno and The Appleseed Cast. Bummed because this is it, and I hate to see a great band go bye-bye. Bieber and Kanye can go away, a great artist I do not want to see disappear.
Please make the time to go see this concert people and give the guys from The Other 49 the send-off they deserve. Check out The Other 49 farewell show event page on Facebook for more information about the show and getting pre-sale tickets.
Aaron Kes (drummer) and Bradley Wiatr (bass) have become a couple of true buds and I hope they resurface with a new project soon (hint-hint). But if they don’t play “Crooks and Cowards” I will be pissed. Just saying.
