West Seattle scene: The Head & The Heart & the crowd

October 14, 2013 at 8:11 pm | In West Seattle news, WS culture/arts | 4 Comments

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.

  2. Darn, sorry we don’t have photo tagging :) Unfortunately our video did not come out; our camera that’s been slowly dying is apparently now dead, so we have to get a new one … we’ll check YouTube for clips in case somebody else succeeded … TR

  3. I hope they get a huge recording contract, they are every bit as good as Pearl Jam.
