*Updated 12/22/13* Upcoming Seattle Shows

Sigh...I am not particularly proud of this week's list, but you'll just have to trust me when I say that I did my best. The problem is, of course, that Christmas is coming up and that means that fewer folks really want to book, play, or host an event. That being said, I think I was able to dig up at least a handful of worthwhile events. 

First off, Heavy Petting, who released one of our favorite albums for the month of August, 'I-V', is headlining the Josephine in Ballard tonight (one of my favorite spaces), and they'll be joined by Sick Sad World, Marvelous Good Fortune, and Richard Album. Fans of hardcore should definitely head to Black Lodge tomorrow night for the release show for the new Misery Ties record, 'A Dim Lit Space', which will be available soon on Glory Kid Records. On Thursday you shook head over to the Daswasup GIG show at Victory Lounge featuring 7 Year Old Blind Girl. Finally, there's a nice looking punk show over at the Lo-Fi on Saturday featuring Bad Tats, Boss Martians, The Crap, and 4 other bands.

By far the biggest event (in terms of size and cost) this week is the 3 night residence that Built to Spill are staging at Neumos. On both Friday and Saturday night they'll be joined by local favorites La Luz, who are touring behind their debut full-length "It's Alive", which is out now on Hardly Art.

All this and slightly more below. Have a great holiday!
