Ironclads Releasing a Record Tonight!
Normally you’d be finding me on a night like this down at the Croc, taking in the J Tillman band AKA my favorite band. Should you be making that choice, I support you wholeheartedly, if with a little jealousy that I won’t be there and you will. On the other hand, just a little ways across town I’ll will be witnessing something special happening that features bands we consider friends.
Tonight at DIY haven Holy Mountain the Ironclads will be releasing their new album into the wild. Among a few local music heads and friends who’ve heard the album the word is the band has done good. A short glance at the newer songs on the profile supports that notion wholeheartedly. Also special to this night is an appearance by the elusive supergroup the Whore Hands, for what is likely to be a freewheelin’ set of the Hands and the Whore Moans playing on each others songs and maybe dropping a hard rock cover or two.
Filling out the evening’s bill are What What Now who are readying themselves for a bunch of west coast dates with the Ironclads in the coming weeks and the Quiet Ones who’ve just been announced as a band playing KEXP’s Hood to Hood winning neighborhood later this month, Capitol Hill.
You can get a taste of the Ironclads today as they are playing an in-studio at 3pm on KEXP. Listen live at KEXP.org.
