A Season To Behold

There is no question that the live music line-up for the Pacific Northwest this summer, was an amazing one. But brace yourself... the last months of 2009 might just prove to be even better.

An astonishing number of the best Indie artists and bands, including Over The Rhine (pictured), are headed our way. So many in fact, that unless you have the powers of Hiro Nakamura and the bank roll of a government concert going subsidy, you probably won't be able to attend all of them. "MUST SEE", shows are highlighted in green. Performances like a special night with Blitzten Trapper and superb opener Wye Oak, a rocking Thanksgiving kick-off with Friendly Fires, and the final show in support of Blind Pilot's critically acclaimed album "Three Rounds And A Sound" are perfect compliments to the season.

With all the needed information, including music posted from many of the featured artists... let ethos83 help you decide which of them you will add to your calendar and which ones you will spend the winter desperately trying to forget you missed.

Let the planning madness begin...
