Sometimes you go out on a Tuesday night and wish you’d stayed in. Then there are times you go out on a Tuesday and wonder why more people didn’t go out on Tuesday.
The latter situation is the one I found myself in this past Tuesday night at The Sinclair.
The night featured Seattle-based standouts, Pickwick, who are touring behind this year’s release Can’t Talk Medicine. Pickwick has been compared to acts ranging from the Black Keys to Sam Cooke. That’s quite a range when you think about it. But you could see why that range is so big if you were there earlier this week. Soul, rock, funk, folk… it’s all in there. And the performance of it all is nothing less than spectacular. (Visual evidence below.) Get out to see them ASAP.
Leading off the bill perfectly that night was local buzz-band Parks. Lead by Brian E. King (Oranjuly), the crew of Parks is obviously no stranger to putting on their own quality show — and having fun while doing it. Parks’ finely tuned garage-pop sensibilities, hooks and up-beat demeanor are enough to start any evening off right. Check out the tunes they have available on their Bandcamp page and be sure to keep an eye/ear out for their new album, which will hopefully drop soon.
