One of the great joys of w00tstock 2.4 in San Diego was finally getting to see and hear Marian Call in person; she is brilliant, and totally One Of Us.
I was talking with Marian this morning, and she told me that she has a show coming up in Seattle:
Well, we're having a sort of mini-w00tstock 2.4 reunion up here, with me, Molly, and Finn this Thursday night. I am very very very excited as I get to have a full band and strings and such for the show, which my usual gypsy-ing about prohibits. I'm also releasing a single tomorrow in conjunction with the event -- that'll be at http://mariancall.bandcamp.com.
Marian was incredible with a typewriter and a guitarist ... I can't even begin to imagine how wonderful she's going to sound with a full band and strings! And Molly will be there! And Finn!
If you live in or near Seattle, and you like things that are awesome, you simply must go see this show. I promise that you will hear great music, and - even more important - you'll be supporting a rising indie star, who just happens to also be an awesome person.
Seattle, WA // Thurs. 09.09.10 - Fremont Abbey: the Very Very Big Seattle Concert
Marian almost never plays with a band, but this September in Seattle it shall come to pass. Strings, drums, and every good thing, including the unsinkable Molly Lewis opening (#freemolly!). 8pm, all ages, tickets $10-18 with student/senior/military/disability/starving artist discount. Tickets will be available in advance at http://mariancall.com starting August 26th and at the door. 4272 Fremont Ave N, Seattle WA.
Marian thinks the show will sell out, or get very close to selling out, so you people who are lucky enough to go see the show should buy your tickets in advance, or at least follow @mariancall on teh Twitters for sales updates and last-minute panicked buying.
Oh, and Vancouver? You're next! Marian is coming to entertain you on Saturday.
