This past Sunday was an exciting day for a few of us music-loving adventurers. There was an outdoor afternoon show at the Crystal Palace (our friends listed in the title) followed by a ridiculously fun show at the RC4NV (Ty Segall, Green Flash and Hermit Convention). Tromping through town with a musical suntan is just the right thing for the end of summer.
Lucky for you, if you missed any of the local music goodness, you can hear Dane Terry and Jordan O’ Jordan tonight on Pocket Full of Manatees. These lovely guys were nice enough to come by our wooded station before their show and hang out and play some tunes. The whole interview airs tonight at 8pm followed by the best in new indie rock. So what’ve you got to lose? Make a date with the Great 88! (jesus that was cheesy, and I apologize, but that is a fabulous, fabulous rhyme!)
And in case you’re not totally sold by my cheese ball pitching (it’s okay, I’m not offended), I could probably tell you what these guys sound like. Jordan O’ Jordan is from Olympia, WA and is a part of Polka Dot Dot Dot. Unfamiliar with both? Jordan is part of the wonderful, friendly DIY folk scene that is making Olympia sound like some sort of magic lush land of glittering music.
Dane Terry is from Ohio (he travelled all this way for us, gee!) and plays some creepy tunes that sound like they belong in a twisted musical on his gigantic keyboard and sings with along with his gigantic voice. (The best song is called Telephant and is about a genetic experiment that put a television where an elephant’s head should go and airs unbiased news if you feed it).
Here are more pictures from the show, plus myspace links if you need more convincing.
