Oh yeah, this happened! Great night, killer lineup. The Maxines are lo-fi two piece garage awesomeness, and Hurry Up are three-piece punk radness. My old bandmate, Maggie Vail, plays bass and sings, and my new favorite drummer Kathy Foster keeps the beat. Kathy's bandmate in The Thermals, Westin, switches it up to guitar. Really great straight-forward jammers!
Kathy has the #1 best drummer hair too, in my opinion. Might there be a Hurry Up/Western Hymn tour on the horizon? Hmmmmm... stay tuned.
And here's what's on the platter for next weekend: Survival Knife's 3rd show ever, in downtown Olympia. As the Knife's unofficial 'hype-man', I implore you to check them out. Justin + Brandt from Unwound, plus (stolen from Western Hymn!) best drummer ever Kris and bass machine Meg. Someone described them as Black Flag meets King Crimson meets Unwound? That might be apt.
