*Updated 2/22* Upcoming Seattle Shows

Hey everyone. PSA: for those who haven't heard, we are hosting our first NO Goddamn Dancing local music showcase on Saturday, March 22nd at the Highline Bar in Capitol Hill. We're not really looking to become promoters, but we thought that a night of dreamy pop music would be a great way to celebrate the release of our newest compilation, "Send Me to Dream". So far, the bill is: VibraGun, Wind Burial (formerly Snowdrift), and Nostalgist. We really think it would be worth your time to come out that night and hang out with us. Genre-jumpers and new blood are especially welcome. RSVP here.

Big names: beat-smith Com Truise, aka Seth Haley, is returning to Seattle to play Chop Suey on Monday night; UK Producer (and co-owner of London's Diagonal Records) Powell is headlining the next MOTOR night on Thursday at the Highline alongside Black Hat, Chris Davis, and Mood Organ. Black Hat's debut LP is coming out early next month on Hausu Mountain, so the odds are pretty good that we'll be getting some new material. Also, those Russian-American, rock-a-billy weirdos known as the Red Elvises are returning to the Tractor on Saturday, and electro-industrial innovators Skinny Puppy are playing over at the Showbox that same night.

Local: If your into electronic music you should head to Vermillion tonight for the Diogenes tape release show (listen to 'Swap Meet' here), but nu-gaze fans should consider the Ringo Deathstarr show at El Corazon instead. The Austin band's newest 12", 'God's Dream', is being released by Neon Sigh late next month, but you can pick up your copy early tonight. Tomorrow night go see post-rock/math-rockers Chung Antique at Highline with Postmadonna; check out the free TacocaT album release in-store for 'NVM' at Sonic Boom Records in Ballard on Tuesday; have your face melted off by LA hardcore band Nomads when they take over the Black Lodge on Wednesday with Olympia favorites White Wards; hit the Josephine on Friday for the 3rd monthly installment of Guitar Worship Service to see how many ways there are to make noise with a guitar; and consider rounding out the week with the Grave Babies, Stickers, HO9909, and Health Problems at Black Lodge on Saturday. Ian Crist Kurtis, the singer for Health Problems and the genius behind the new Bosnia release on Hanged Man puts on a show that needs to be witnessed to be believed.
