weekend agenda: music style mostly

loney dear, this spring at the Moore. Photo, by me.
  • Visqueen show off their long-awaited album, Message to Garcia in the headline spot in a dual record release party with Throw Me the Statue. If, by some insane chance you haven’t yet picked up these discs yet, bring some cash and buy them directly from the bands on Saturday, 8pm. $12. [crocodile]
  • All day Saturday, Ballard will be consumed with Reverb Festival, with tons of mostly local bands playing club shows [preview at kexp]. A wristband gets you into everything. Saturday, maximum $10. [reverb]
  • Um, has it already been a month? I’m not sure that I’ve yet recovered from the last time Emerald City Soul Club took over Lo Fi (and Victory and Black Mountain for an awesomely comfortable and maze-like triple feature), yet here they are again presents “Talcum”. You know what that means, bring your particulate filter mask and dancing shoes and make a plan to escape for pancakes after closing time. [lofi]
  • Asobi Seksu & Loney Dear, whose album, Dear John has grown on me song by song and month by month to be one of my favorite quietly symphonic and unassuming records of the year, warm your Sunday night. $10-12, Sunday, 8pm. [chopsuey]
  • Ponder the universe in which Bob Dylan is touring in advance of a record of Christmas Carols in October. Amazingly the smaller Sunday show at the Moore still has tickets, as does the Monday show at WaMu. $45-55, Sunday, 7:30pm
