Doors: 8:00 PM / Show: 9:30 PM
This show is 21+, proper I.D. is required for admission
The Sunset and Hannah Levin present:
Retro Medicine: a DVD screening of a Fugazi performance from the Red Medicine tour, shot live in Seattle followed by a show featuring music from Strong Killings, Blood Orange Paradise and special guests.
Screening of the Fugazi concert will start at 8pm with live music starting at 9:30. No cover charge for the DVD screening, but donations are being accepted to benefit Musicares.
Strong Killings are insidious, uncouth and loud! The band's members could easily be called misfits, maybe even sociopaths, but when it comes down to it, those are the very things that make their music so amazing. Their wry sense of humor, singing stories culled from their daily lives and the ability to not take themselves seriously separate Strong Killings from the herd of crap bands being passed off as punk and noise.
The dream of the nineties is alive in Seattle.
A city that was once known for its unfiltered enthusiasm for rock and roll has opted for hushed, acoustic tones in the past few years. Elsewhere, independent rock music has become a stale, formulaic three-chord let down.
Born out of discontent with this music is Blood Orange Paradise.
Blood Orange paradise are creative, adventurous and noisy. Their influences are diverse, spanning from Black Sabbath to The Sea and Cake to Jawbox.
People say Blood Orange Paradise “sounds like the 90s.” They sound like the 90s because that is the decade they learned how to play their instruments. It is also the decade they began to love music.
