Danny Newcomb and the Sugarmakers
November 28 @ 20/20 Cycle in Seattle
By Andy Bookwalter
Why wouldn’t you go to a bike shop for a rock show? Hell, take beer out of the equation (which I did many years ago) and a bar is just about the worst place to hear live music. Drunk people stepping on your feet, that one tall guy who I swear follows me everywhere so he can stand right goddamn in front of me, and don’t even get me started on how everything is sticky.
Nope, come to a small bike shop in the CD to hear survivors from about 30 years worth of Seattle bands including Shadow, Goodness, Jodie Watts, the Rockfords, and more.
20/20 Cycles is run by Alex Kostelnik, who prior to becoming a bike tycoon was also a music guy, mostly working on the recording side of things. Now he puts bands on a tiny stage for our amusement.
Danny Newcomb and his band are feeding the buzz for Masterwish, on Mike McCready’s Hockeytalkter records (which looks misspelled but isn’t). It’s a beautiful album that I already wrote a bunch of stuff about, so I’ll just refer back to the review for more on why you should show up.
The show starts at 8 p.m. and there’s a $5 suggested donation. 20/20 Cycle is located at 2020 Union St. in Seattle.
