Sending out a whole lotta love to the Eagles of Death Metal, who are actually only a few days away from getting their sweet asses back to Seattle. It’s been far too long since the Chop Suey show/Easy Street WS in-store, and even longer since the Placebo opening dates way back when.
If you’re not familiar with ’em, here’s a new interview on Blogcritics that’s a damn fine introduction:
Their new video is a hoot, too: reminds me of the ZZ Top videos of yore:
They’ll be rolling into town opening for the Strokes next week, but if you don’t have/don’t want tickets to that, have no fear. They’re doing a free in-store at the Easy Street on Queen Anne next Monday, April 3, at 9pm.
I guarantee you will have fun. It’s pure rock that makes it scientifically impossible for the human body not to dance. Period. I’m all for anyone who helps the world remember that rock’s supposed to be fun.
I’ll be racing back from the airport to make it — see you there?
