Three Imaginary Girls Talk About Our Seattle Show

May 19 2011

Hey all!
Just a quick post to say The Smittens are so close to our West Coast tour. One week left until we head out! I’m so excited to see friends old and new and play some great shows! One of my good friends moved to Seattle in the last couple of months and I’m really looking forward to seeing her and playing here. Also the lovely Three Imaginary Girls wrote about our Seattle show on their site. Thanks ladies! Read the article below or click on the site link to take you to their website directly.

Seattle’s very own one-night popfest: The Smittens, Math & Physics Club, The Special Places, Monnone Alone {ex-Lucksmiths}
The best thing about the San Francisco PopFest, besides the fabulous line-up gathered in one city over five consecutive days for the massive delight of p-fest attendees, is fact that all of those PopFest bands sometimes spread their west coast wings and, in the most wonderful of cases, travel north to visit us in Seattle.

On Friday, June 3 at the Rendezvous we have just such a migration from SF as two Seattle (and imaginary favorite) bands share a bill with two indie-popolicious artists from far away to make my one-night-mini-popfest dreams come true.

Opening the night is Monnone Alone, a band consisting of the most charming Lucksmiths’ bassist of all time, Mark Monnone {and, sometimes, a couple very talented friends}. There has been a hole in our heart since the Lucksmiths called it quits (or how we like to remember it, put a hiccup in our happiness by hitting the ‘pause’ button), and here comes Monnone Alone to the rescue.

Next up is Seattle’s Special Places, a duo consisting of Jenny Mears and Corianton Hale from Tullycraft. They just put the finishing touches on their first ever release and, fingers crossed, we will be able to pick up the EP at the show (maybe?). Perhaps they will include an acoustic cover of “Enter Sandman” in their set? Would any one-night-mini-popfest be complete *without* an acoustic cover of “Enter Sandman?”

Keeping the hometown vibe going will be Math & Physics Club. This is their last Seattle show before they head off to the great island across the pond to play IndieTracks (we’ve talked about how it’s our dream to go to IndieTracks, right?) and a UK tour. It’s so neat to think that Seattle’s very own MaPC are going to play stages in Manchester, Glasgow , and London! Let’s all pat their backs and wish them well on their big trip.

Rounding out the night, Vermont’s The Smittens will take the stage and fill the room with sweet pop melodies about love, friendship, and gumdrops. I don’t think they’ve never played Seattle, so this is our first ever chance to scream for “something sassy” at the top of our lungs.

Sounds like one pop-mazing, pop-tastic, pop-ilicious, pop-derful night right?!!?
