Band in Seattle live television taping with Posse and Shrimps
Come participate in the taping of the television/web program "Band in Seattle" with Posse and Shrimps - Thursday, November 12, 2015, sponsored by Naked City Brewing and American Music. Each band will perform a 45 minute concert and participate in an interview as well as music trivia. Doors open at 6PM at Victory Studios, 2247 15th Avenue West between Queen Anne and Magnolia in Seattle. The show starts at 7PM and ends at approximately 10PM.

With their slowly tangling guitars and over-it vocals, Seattle trio Posse sound like Pacific Northwest slackers of the highest order. Guitarist and lyricist Paul Wittmann-Todd has been known to sport Birkenstocks in public, but these guys aren't just sitting back and watching the rain trickle down their car windows. Wittmann-Todd, the group's most endearingly effusive cynic, is an electrical engineer. Singer-guitarist Sacha Maxim works at Microsoft. And Jon Salzman, the drummer, is a therapist. "That slacker Sub Pop stuff is lying around Seattle, but I always thought that scene was a little affected," Wittmann-Todd says. "We're a very responsible, punctual band."

Owing to their new album Soft Opening's weary nature, the band wrote and tracked it while tired after full days of work, home-recording in the basement of Maxim's house in the city's Capitol Hill neighborhood, letting the songs evolve with time. They barely played out during the process, disappearing so thoroughly that folks in the Seattle scene wondered if they'd broken up. Soft Opening is the first release on Posse's own Beating a Dead Horse label and the band's second album overall, but it feels more like an assured debut. Refined and lyrical with plainspoken tinges of twangy self-defeat, it's the kind of meditative rock record that carries a hypnotic ennui; occasionally, between the unfurling leads of ecstatic feedback, it makes you laugh.

On their new EP, Seattle trio Shrimps channels all of the soul-crushing minutiae of our everyday lives into deceptively sad, yet infectious punk rock. Something as pedestrian as eating leftovers for dinner, for example, becomes an introspective take on antisocial behavior. In their music, the band creates a juxtaposition of theme and melody, with cynical lyrics at odds with stripped-down, high energy rock n' roll. Lead singer/guitarist Rachel Rafter tells the listener "I'm fine," over and over again, but you're too busy pogoing and thrashing around to properly sympathize with her, and maybe that's the point. With call-and-response vocals from bassist Matt Nautical Stuff and further rhythmic support from drummer Wave Rammer, Shrimps are a throwback punk outfit that is equal parts method and madness.

Come "hang out" with Posse and Shrimps at Victory Studios and get your 15 minutes of fame on "Band in Seattle."
