Thursday, October 7th | Showbox @ The Market | Frightened Rabbit, Plants & Animals, Bad Veins
It was just a little over a year ago that we were writing about and sharing some amazing photos from our great night out in Glasgow; in Seattle (read about it HERE). Seems everyone we knew was at Neumo’s to see 3 great emerging Scottish bands play their hearts out: Twilight Sad, We Were Promised Jetpacks, and Frightened Rabbit. Thursday night will see the return of one of our favorites of that group to a bigger stage: Frightened Rabbit. If you thought they sounded amazing at Neumo’s, I can’t wait to hear what they sound like on the bigger stage at The Showbox/Market (outside of the Triple Door I consider it the best sounding live room in Seattle). Lead vocalist Scott Hutchison is sure to put his heart into the performance once again and you’ll be hard-pressed to hear a more amazing drummer out there than his brother Grant. They are a fantastic live band and a long way from home. If you saw their previous Neumo’s performance, I’m confident we’ll see you there this time too. If you still haven’t seen them live, do yourself a favor and come check out this show. Opening are a group we’re excited about seeing for the first time: Bad Veins - a band you’ll never in a million years think is from Cincinnati Ohio. They also happen to be on one of our favorite labels: Dangerbird Records. They sound like every favorite band of mine wrapped into one nice little package. They should get the place jumping.
In the meantime, here’s a little taste of what to expect from Frightened Rabbit on Thrsday night:
