Harvey Danger at LUFest

Harvey Danger played the Lake Union Summer Fest tonight.

If you haven’t seen the band live you are missing out on something pretty amazing. The experience is real. Like your best friend sitting you down and telling you like it is.

The LUFest crew hasn’t quite figured out production time management so we ended up listening to a few lukewarm-up bands for what seemed like an eternity leaving only half an hour for what most folks came to see. But frontman Sean “silver-lining-greener-grass-bright-side” Nelson kept us feeling grateful. The encore piece was inspired by Nelson’s experience working at Seattle Weekly. It’s a fantastic song called Ballad of the Tragic Hero (pity and fear). Lyrics include: “Did you ever know you’re my tragic hero?”

Brilliant.

Watch it here.

You can catch Harvey Danger live again in mid-September before they hibernate for a while at:
