This Thursday @ The Paradox!
September 22nd

The Paradox is looking for new volunteers! This means you. Get your Community Service hours. Get free snacks. Get involved in your local scene.

The Paradox is a completely volunteer run venue - and non-profit, to boot! We are looking for more kids to join our team.

We'll have Paradox staff on hand to answer your questions and information to take away with you for yourself (and maybe your parents, too.)

Don't forget - if you're in high school and looking to complete your community service hours - volunteering for the Paradox counts towards those hours!

For more info - or if you'd like to become a volunteer, but can't make it to the meeting - contact our volunteer coordinator, Dustin - dustin at the paradox.org

Head of Femur (mem. of Bright Eyes), Spinto Band, Dear Darling & Transistor Heart

"When Elvis Presley appeared on The Ed Sullivan show, the cameramen were instructed to film Elvis’ pelvis no lower than the head of femur. Thus the head of femur is the point where rock and roll becomes sex, and we balance on top of it!" - Head of Femur Head of Femur is a Chicago octet formed in November of 2001 by Nebraska natives Mike Elsener(Solar Wind), Matt Focht (Bright Eyes) and Ben Armstrong (Commander Venus). With a large catalog of songs already taking shape by early 2002, Head of Femur began to recruit musicians to flesh out the lineup for live performance. The nature of the music demanded more than the traditional rock band instrumentation, so strings, trumpet, and orchestral percussion were added along with drums and bass. Following more than a year of touring with such acts as Bright Eyes and Rilo Kiley, and most recently Wilco - their new full-length record Hysterical Stars has just been released on spinART Records.

Locals Dear Darling have recently released their first full length album Songs of Friends and Family; a somber album but it's one that also possesses a beautiful sort of bitterness. And just like selfish depression itself, the band's melancholy batch of simplistic, honest indie rock is both comforting and tragic.


Delaware sextet Spinto Band is in the prime vein of musical prowess. Utilizing an indie-pop sensibility that brings to mind the Flaming Lips and Pavement, their songs can send you careening into the heights of lysergic bliss or provide the catchiest vibes to shake your tail feather to. Either way, this six-piece outfit has the goods to deliver us all from the doldrums of banality.

Transistor Heart features Cameron Elliott of the The Western States. Originally dubbed as a "recording project," Transistor Heart has seen some interest lately in the local scene, and Cameron has found himself playing a few live shows in the process. A bit folkier than the States, Transistor Heart is sure to please.

June 3, 2005 - 8:00pm - $7
The Fall of Troy
Antlers
Beestings
The Americas
Birds of Fire

The Paradox has watched The Fall of Troy blossom into what is now a solid band - from their beginnings at our U-District location to their first
full length album being recorded. We're happy to have them for the first
time in our new venue.

June 4, 2005 - 8:00pm - $7
Some By Sea
Mobius Band
Verona

Some By Sea's decisively pop escapades are a swirling mix of
instrumentation and delicately balanced male/female vocals. Lead singer
Chris Du Bray carves wonderful lovelorn vignettes reminiscent of the
narrative stylings of Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard and Weakerthans’ songsmith John Samson. A beautiful melancholy, the group’s approach to songwriting allows the even the hardest of hearts to melt.

THE DANDELION METHOD - FINAL SHOW AND CD RELEASE WITH
Nedelle!
Fred Thomas of Saturday Looks Good to Me!
Speaker Speaker!

About the Dandelion Method:

"...You get the impression that [The Dandelion Method] just decided to pick up a bunch of instruments and see what came of it. In this case, something rather cool happened....There is a definite emphasis on musical interplay but also on vocal harmonizing. The band enjoys performing and carries themselves as though they have something important to say, even when they don't." -Tablet

"Sounds, strings and vocals flow and blend into tight melodies as five musicians bear their souls in honest, real, articulate words..." -- The Falcon

"The Dandelion Method is the type of bittersweet indie-pop that can give a listener chills..." -Never Get Over You

"Unabashed pop" - The Seattle Post-Intelligencer

The Glasses, Black Nite Crash, Martian Memo to God, The Jailbirds

Moving from dark noise to pop melodics, Seattle's Black Nite Crash creates a dynamic wall of energy and sound. Beauty and anger and inspiration. The group's live performances always promise to be dizzying and intense rock and roll experiences.

_pink_robot_9:23am: hey everyone....
Trying trying trying to be regular (ha!) about posting shows. So, here goes... Let's make this a New Year's resolution. To post all upcoming shows!

Here's the first:



January 21, 2005 - 8:00pm - $7

Suffering and the Hideous Thieves, Supine to Sit and more

Musically, Suffering and the Hideous Thieves is a jaw-dropping wonder: a heaving, cascading flow of orchestral arrangements that conjures a less drugged-out Spiritualized, a less festive Firewater, a redemptionless Delgados. Eight musicians thunder and roil as guitars, violins, keyboards, and drums thrash out heady elation and remorse in tandem, because those emotions inevitably come packaged together, no matter how hard the manufacturer schemes to disguise their pairing.

This is a benefit for our good friend Kevin Barrans; drummer of Suffering and the Hideous Thieves and the President of Seattle's own Moped Army. Kevin was recently seriously injured in a moped wreck. All proceeds will be going to help Kevin and his ridiculous medical bills. Check out the Moped Army website - they're selling buttons - all the money helps out.

_pink_robot_2:09pm: SPECIAL CHRISTMAS SHOW!
December 17, 2004 - 8:00pm
The Pale
Late Tuesday (EP Release Party)
Common Heroes
$8

If The O.C. has name-checked Bright Eyes and Death Cab for Cutie just a little too much for your liking, reclaim some indie cred by spinning the third release from the Pale. The Northwest's latest rock hype is a pleasant pop gem, full of jangly guitars and mid-tempo tunes with chilled-out keyboards punctuating singer Gabe Archer's often frail lyrics. The kids might call it emo, but you'll realize that the Pale isn't part of that trend... When Gravity pulls it together with sunshine-covered Beach Boys melodies and a lot of bouncing pop, the job gets done.

jamesinthered6:25pm: Hey, I jsut joined this community, and I was jsut wondering if any you bands out there would like to record for next to nothing. You'd be usin g a good studio and what not. So if any of you are interested just post on my lj. Other then that hope to see all you at some shows.
