*Updated 11/17* Upcoming Seattle Shows

Hey everyone! National stuff: back in March, legendary post-punk/art punk outfit Wire curated a festival called DRILL in London, and Thursday through Saturday of this week they are going to be doing the same for sunny Seattle. The festival will be broken down into three separate events at the Crocodile, Neumos, and Barboza, with the band themselves appearing the final night with our very own Chastity Belt. Another great, and somewhat surprising show, is Juliana Barwick's performance at The Fremont Abbey this Friday. If you haven't heard Nepenthe then you show definitely put it on your list before then. Also, Blues Control. They're playing at the Tractor with Hobosexual and Quasi on Friday as well and from their performance at The Comet earlier this year, I can tell you that they are amazing live. Finally, LA's Audacity are coming to the Black Lodge tomorrow night--also a great live show.

Great local stuff includes the free Stalebirth show at Vermillion for noise aficionados; the benefit for KSUB, Seattle Universities local radio station, with Lures and Bigfoot Wallace and his Wicked Sons, Albatross, and White Gardens at Chop Suey; A special MTNs/Monogamy party collaborative set at Black Lodge on Wednesday; Airport with Ecstatic Cosmic Union at Vermillion on Saturday at Vermillion; and a chance to see both Scriptures and Piano Piano at over at The Sunset the same night. Piano Piano's 'We I Was Not In Myself, No One Alarmed Me', was featured on our best of August list and if post-rock is your thing then you show take a listen.

I know I always say it, but there really is a ton of stuff I didn't even mention below. Have a great week!
