Weekend Shots!

January is racing by, and with the recently announced Seattle tour dates for Bat For Lashes and a new album out in April by Phoenix, Seattle music fans are gearing up for a busy Spring 2013! In the meantime, have some good stuff to round out the second half of January, including a much-buzzed about performance at Barboza tonight (1/18) by the eccentric folk duo, Two Gallants.

Two Gallants is a duo made up of Adam Stephen and Tyson Vogel, San Francisco musicians who came together to form the indie-folk band in 2002. In September, the band released The Bloom and the Blight. The album was the band’s first release in five years and continues to showcase Stephen’s ability to shape his metal-sounding voice around the Gallant’s folk-inspired melodies.

Known for their ominous lyrics that conjure images of alcoholics, the dying, and the slums of America, you would think that the band might have a small, specific fan base. However, their style has resonated with music lovers and crowds at shows have been known to get rowdy right along with the band raging theatrics. Check out the band for yourself at the show tonight at Barboza on Capitol Hill. Tickets are $15 advanced for the 21+ show. Doors open at 7:30PM.
