I’ve long thought Furniture Girls is one of the best bands in Seattle, and it seems someone over at Victory Studios might just share that thought as they’ve chosen the band to be one of the first to participate in a new series the media company is putting together. It’s called Band in Seattle, and the premise is simple. They choose two promising Seattle bands each week, film them performing in-studio, and compile footage of the show with interviews to document not only the music but the creative process and the struggles musicians go through when still at the “local” level.
The resulting video will presumably be aired online, but it’s good to note that the Victory Studios’ Facebook page says that the show is coming in December to a television near you. I hope so as I know from all my years playing in bands that often the best music is the local stuff, the bands that can only be heard in the small clubs around the city, the bands that most likely will soon never be heard again.
Band in Seattle is a worthy effort, and I applaud Victory Studios for doing it.
The Furniture Girls performance is tomorrow night, September 11. I apologize for the late notice, but I only just found out myself. Doors open at 6:00, and they ask that people be prompt as once the show starts no one will be admitted because it’s being filmed.
Admission is free, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to request up to four tickets.
