Perhaps you’re old and need an entire weekend to recover from Thursday night’s Halloween festivities. Hopefully, though, that’s not the case and you want to check out live music this weekend!
As Leah Sottile pointed out this week, Magic Castles and Mirror Mirror are taking over Jones Radiator tonight at 9 pm at a free show. Magic Castles make simple, deliberate rock music — never too technical or reliant on effects to make their point. Left to their own devices, they construct a timeless, hypnotizing sound, both sweet and completely drugged-out all at once. Hell, we kind of wish all rock music sounded like this.
nYne also has ssssnake, Half Zodiac, Hey! is for Horses at 9 pm for $5.
Martha’s Revenge is “the Northwest’s premier Accüsed tribute band.” That’s right, the band full of original members of Accüsed, a punk heavy metal '80s outfit from Seattle, formed a tribute band of the group they used to play in. Wow. Martha’s Revenge, along with Toe Tag, Rutah, American Wrecking Company and Rasputin, demolish Carr’s Corner for $6 Saturday.
Also Bullet Proof Tattoo is having a Rock Against ALS benefit featuring Moral Cruz, Deaddones USA, Lobster Jaw and the Sissies.
Colorado’s indie rock duo Scatter Gather has crazy creative music videos. They play a free show at the Baby Bar Sunday at 9 pm.
Seattle-based all-girl band Chastity Belt may sing a lot about vaginas but they take music seriously as well. They play with Pony Time, Bloody Gloves and Bad Mood at Baby Bar Monday. The show is free.
