Their new album isn’t officially out until tomorrow – but today, you could buy The Head & The Heart‘s new album “Let’s Be Still” in advance at just one place: West Seattle’s own Easy Street Records. And those who did, were guaranteed a spot inside the store for tonight’s announced-at-the-last-minute live performance. Big spillover outside:
It’s not easy running a record store -slash- café -slash- live-music venue – ESR proprietor Matt Vaughan was seen minutes before the show, coming down from his crow’s nest by the café’s front door; he had been moving some audio equipment:
After tonight’s Easy Street performance, The Head & The Heart (profiled in The Seattle Times [WSB partner] today) was off to a sold-out show at the Columbia City Theater, and heading east on tour after that; as for ESR, there’s more excitement at the store later tonight – Pearl Jam‘s new album will be playing and on sale in less than an hour, when the release party starts at 9 pm.
