Each weekend throughout the entire month of August Seattle Center has been hosting a series of free events at The Mural Amphitheatre featuring: quality local and regional music (co-sponsored by KEXP), and after sunset movie showings.
Last night FYM had the pleasure of seeing smooth to the groove Seattle soul rollers- Pickwick perform. Pretty tremendous stuff, it was a set filled with booming kinetic energy and boogie-down swagger.
Pickwick had it together live last night with a easy to appreciate sonic clamor- we will definitely put them on our must see list for Bumbershoot 2011 (playing Saturday September 3rd). For more tunes visit Pickwick's bandcamp page HERE.
It's unbelievable that a band with such an incredible sound has yet to be singed to a record label.. maybe they are holding out for the highest bidder... Regardless we can't wait to see them again!
Apparently hip-indie music does exist in Seattle. Up next- Ravenna Woods wowed us with their unique brand of upbeat roots-fused yearning.
Their foot stompin' vibe shimmers with dynamic duel percussive elements, passionate soaring vocals, and rabid guitar playing prowess.
Catch Ravenna Woods live at The Rendez-vous this Monday at 8 PM. Click HERE for more information.

Cheers, FYM.
