*Updated 8/11* Upcoming Seattle Shows

We're back! And just in time too, 'cause there are so many great acts to see in the next few weeks. Tonight: Best Coast with Very Bad Things (which made our best of 2013.5: abroad list) , and Jetman Jet Team with Experimental Dental School--both line-ups are phenomenal, but I'll probably end up in the Jet Team audience. Other great shows at the Comet this week include Stalebirth with Lazy and Pentaglam on Tuesday, and The Lindseys with Crazy Eyes and Swamp Meat on Wednesday. Local Nu-jazz titans Heatwarmer (see our favorite releases for July) are playing at Columbia City Theater with Body Parts and Lures on Thursday; unfortunately, it'll be at the same time that Texas' The Polyphonic Spree are headlining at Neumos. I haven't been a fan of everything they've done, but their new record, "Yes, It's True" is pretty decent. For this Friday consider heading over to Sonic Boom to see the free in-store performance from Smith Westerns, followed by either the USF/Hibou show at The Comet, or Grave Babies with Zebrahunt at Heartland. Round off the week with either Erik Blood at Vera, or Tummy at Heartland. Oh yeah, you have two opportunities to see Hall and Oats this week and I added both of them cause that's how I roll. Have a great week!
