*Updated 8/24* Upcoming Seattle Shows

Millions. of. Dead. Cops; if you were once young, rage this coming Saturday night at the Highline at their Punk as Fuck Fest featuring all the living members of the legendary Texas punk band. While were talking about alternative approaches, let's talk about Bummershoot. No, you didn't read that wrong, I said Bummershoot; it's a festival coordinated by our city's best DIY venues in order to bring you everything that Bumbershoot can't provide. It's cheap, and just look at the line-up! Other thoughts: The Beach Boys are sort of coming to town, but since Mike Love fired the rest of the band no one cares; Vermillion Art Bar is hosting their newly founded "The Deep End" electro-night featuring the artist behind our most recent SWL post, Casewag; those who need still more dance music should head over to MOTOR VII at LoFi on Wednesday. Finally, on the 31st there are two more amazing options: the experimental/noise-a-thon at the Josephine featuring NGD favorite Stalebirth, Rainbow Wolves, Friend Enforcer; or, the Grave Babies, Jetman Jet Team show at Victory Lounge. In a perfect world both shows would be packed, but given the competing Bummershoot events both will probably need support from everyone else. More below; have a great week!
