The Whywolves @ The Comet

Power pop with a touch of punk is a good combination. It is a bummer that we have to always see these kids from Bothell on weekdays. Hey Seattle clubs: book this talented trio on a weekend, they will not disappoint.

Badwater Fire Company @ The Comet

The Comet Tavern once again proves why it is the place to be on the ‘Hill with another rad show featuring BWFC. With an incredibly tight rhythm section, space-drenched guitar and some screaming, this trio is not to be missed.

brown bird @ The Tractor

This Rhode Island duo is doing what so many bearded folk acts fail to do: keep it catchy and simple. If you are in the mood for awesome guy/girl intersecting vocals and percussion that sounds like it is emanating from a train yard, head to Ballard on hump day this week.

Thursday, August 23 through Saturday August 25
International Pop Overthrow @ The Mix

The International Pop Overthrow (IPO) returns to Seattle for the sixth year and the second at Seattle’s Best Rock Club. For a measly $10 per night you, the NadaMucho.com reader, can get your fill of awesome music and even get a free compilation CD (while they last).

Sunday, August 26 
Reggae is an acquired taste. In my circles, most don’t acquire a taste for the repetitive genre but there is one band that smashes the genre and is just about the most exciting ensemble you will see around town. Rooted Skies front-man Nakai is a lyrical gangster and his stage presence is worth the price of admission alone.
