Every Tuesday we hit you where it feels good with a list of shows we’re excited to see over the next five days. Then, Stuck puts the cherry on top with a post dedicated to a #TGIM show on the sixth day.
It’s like this post is the tee to Stuck’s five year-old tee ball batter. Hope he’s got his batting helmet on.
Anyway, it’s mid-May already you guys. Shit’s real.
OK, HERE’S WHAT WE’VE GOT:
Tuesday, May 12
You probably have dinner plans, but if you don’t chill out downtown. You’ve had a rough week. Put your feet up and relax. You’ve earned it, slugger.

I can’t keep suggesting EVERY Prom Queen show. If I could I’d tell you to go to Sunset tonight. Lucky for us all there’s a 90’s nostalgia throw down with Less Than Jake and Reel Big Fish. Both Stuck and 13 year-old Jeff are pretty stoked on this one.

Barboza is great for local bands that have transcended the High Dive and are the right size for The Sunset or Nectar, but don’t want to leave Capitol Hill. It’s also great for other swell local bands that just play goo-ass music and don’t give a fuck. Actually, I don’t know if these whether these guys give a fuck or not, or if they turned down other shows. Either way, uh, we should all go check this out.

I’m not sure if you’re aware of this, but Sean Downey helped put the Downey in The Fabulous Downey Brothers. At least 1/2 of the total Downeyage. Anyway, the “cool kids” will tell you to go to Capitol Hill or Ballard on Friday nights. They can have ’em. Live music addicts like you and I know that the Blue Moon will always be there for us, even after Capitol Hill has become Planet of the Bros and Ballard has been taken over by the Stepford Wives of Bellevue.
Also Friday, SEACATS are performing a play they wrote at Hollow Earth Radio. This would be the suggested show, but I don’t know if they are going to sing songs, play video games or roll around on a pile of burgers. It’s going to be memorable no matter what happens, so you should go 🙂

No offense to Barboza, but I wish I didn’t have to recommend two shows there in one week. Generally speaking I try to mix it up more, but when a show is going to be awesome it’s my job to tell the people. This one will have dancing, ridiculously heartfelt singing and a high probability of me having a good time but complaining about the plastic pint glasses anyway.

This is the Lord’s day. She would want you to witness radness and help kill the keg at Chop Suey. Go forth, my sons and daughters and killest doth keg.
