weekend agenda : say hi, mt st helens, magma



  • Hollow Earth Radio’s Magma Festival starts tonight with the Moondoggies (a.k.a., “Seattle’s hottest band” and one of the few Hardly Art acts without an “and” in their name), Kusikia, Triumph of Lethargy, and TacocaT (the band, not the extraordinary delicious sometimes brunch special at Linda’s). The festival runs across through March’s weekends and $35 gets you into every show. This one’s $9 and the doors are at 7:30pm. [veraproject]
  • Mount St Helens Vietnam Band roll out a new album along with an ice cream flavor of their very own tonight (courtesy of Molly Moon). It’s something of a double CD release party since Say Hi (formerly “… to your mom”, now to everyone I guess) just dropped “oohs & aahs” on Tuesday. The always effervescent Visqueen open. [neumos]
  • Ridiculously enough, there’s also the matter of a SxSeattle send-off at the Tractor for New Faces, Hey Marseilles, and Champagne Champagne) [sots] and M.Ward at the Showbox.


  • The 8th annual Sound Off (a battle of the underage bands) concludes with a bout between semi-final winners Dyno Jamz, Makeup Monsters and Sol, who will try to clutch the crown and the fantastic prizes at Sky Church. In addition to besting each other, they’ll need to make it past Dearboy, who claimed the fan-powered wild card spot. $10, 8pm. [emp]
  • Magma makes its way to Fremont with Mount Eerie (whose shows are never quite the same, but are always wonderful and any Phil Elverum performance falls into my permanently recommendable category),Tiny Vipers, and Mike Dumovich + Lori Goldston. $8, 8pm. [fremontabbey]
