That is all.
No Age stopped into our offices to talk “Nouns” before heading off to their show at the Showbox tonight. Luckily, we have these shots to help us remember their all-too-brief visit.
Today is the release date for the surpassingly excellent Keep Your Eyes Ahead by The Helio Sequence. Those two dudes played on KEXP this morning at 9:30 AM (I know, right!), and will be playing at the Easy Street Records on Queen Anne this evening at 7pm. If you live in Seattle you should attend. It is free and will be sweet. Easy Street is having a huge sale so you probably need to get over there anyway.
And then, in further two-dude news, No Age play The Showbox tonight before the Liars and after Past Lives. If you’re lucky enough to live in Seattle you should also attend that.
In other words, Happy Two-Dudes Tuesday.
