Northwest Music News this week


Seattle’s newest music venue: King Cobra. Set to open sometime in January in the old Sugar nightclub space next to the Comet, they promise all kinds of music offerings for their 475 person capacity venue. See the complete details at Lineout. With the demise of the Croc, 10th and Pike is the place to be.

Three Imaginary Girls Best of the Northwest 2007 poll results are in. They’ve got a couple lists to compare: the Editors Picks and the Readers Poll. I see many people (smartly) agree with me about the Cave Singers and Menomena being top ten albums this year. They also bring us the Easy Street Records Best of 2007 list, picked by the record store employees themselves.

Grand Archives release a few new songs and new album details. A new pair of cheerier songs are up on their myspace. Their new album is self-titled and will be released on Sub Pop on February 19. Complete details at pfork. Their playing at the Triple Door on February 20. Buy tickets here.

You can now go to Laser Radiohead at Seattle Center. Rock.
