Their cunning, fuzzy, self-titled album took the indieverse by storm with sounds of upbeat yearning reminiscent of explosive basement pajama parties and covert library action. They charmed the pants off of the mainstage during the Capitol Hill Block Party in the middle of the summer. Now, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart are returning to Seattle on Tuesday, just a few days ahead of the release of their new [already!] EP, Higher Than The Stars (22 September, Slumberland, complete with a trancy St. Etienne remix of the title track).
As much as I liked seeing them on a big stage in the great outdoors, I have a sneaking suspicion that they’ll be even more in their element in closer, darker quarters. If you haven’t already purchased tickets for this show (now with an all-ages balcony!), we might be able to reward your procrastination.

We have a pair to giveaway to one of you. Just drop a note to us (seattle.metblogs @ or on the twitter @seattlemetblogs ) — with “tPoBPaH” in the subject line before Saturday afternoon and you’ll be entered to win. Those who identify the skeletons or highlight meaningful entries in the bibliography of “Young Adult Friction” [youtube] video — a near-perfect visual expression of the band’s sonic aesthetic, as far as I’m concerned — will improve their odds of victory.
