On Wednesday January 20, I went to the Triple Door to see Asobi Seksu on an unusual acoustic tour. I've been a fan of theirs since first hearing and seeing them back in 2006, and I was very curious to hear how they'd adapt their shoegaze/dreampop style to an all-acoustic style. The results were great, and I wrote about it for the KEXP Blog. Opening for Asobi Seksu was local artist Anomie Belle. You can read all about the show here on the KEXP Blog.

My friend John Peltonen, who came along to the show, took a bunch of photos at my request so that I'd have something better for the review than my usual iPhone photos, which generally aren't that good at the Triple Door. (I did take a few, and you can see my photos here on Flickr.) Unfortunately due to some confusion, KEXP sent their own photographer to the show as well, and his are the ones posted on the KEXP Blog. However, John got some great photos of his own, and you should go check them out here in John's Flickr photostream.

Coming up, next Friday February 5 there are three great bands in town: St. Vincent at Neumos, Editors at the Showbox, and Do Make Say Think at Chop Suey. It's a tough choice, and I think I'm going to St. Vincent, but I may end up at Do Make Say Think instead. Then on Saturday February 13, there's a special show at the Crocodile: "Dancing on the Valentine", a benefit for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, featuring several bands including my favorites Hotels doing covers of David Bowie songs. You can be sure if there's Hotels and dancing involved, I'll be there.
