LIVE MUSIC TONIGHT IN THE SOUTH SOUND >>>

Le Voyeur Café and Lounge Olympia - Downtown. All Ages Matinee Show, with Hell Woman, Pitted Youth, High Five, No High Five. All Ages. 5 pm. The Speed Of Sound In Seawater. 21+. 10 pm.

  • A while back, I wrote about a band called Mr. Frederick that combined disparate genres like rap-metal, folk and chamber pop. The Speed of Sound in Seawater is similarly confusing, but in a more insidious way. Listening to their second album, Red Version, their weirdness sneaks up on you. For the first song, they sound like a twee-pop band with a singer who sounds a little like Ben Gibbard. Then the compositions start getting a little more complex, and by the end of the second song, the singer's screaming. The rest of the album continues in this vein of math-twee-pop interspersed with bits of hardcore vocalization. It's legitimately surprising stuff. And a little creepy, if you ask me, but I couldn't tell you why. Go figure. - Rev. Adam McKinney

The Loft on Cherry Olympia - Downtown. June Madrona, Jenny Jenkins, Paper Bird, Dovekins, Spirits Of The Red City. All Ages. 8 pm. $5-$10 sliding scale.

  • Spirits of the Red City make chamber-folk that leans toward the melancholy, though the wall of sound created by the wave of instruments has an uncanny ability to feel spirited even while the voices suggest otherwise. – Rev. AM

O'Callahan's Pub & Grill Key Peninsula. Tammy Faye & The Thrill Billies. 21+. 4 pm. NC.
