Damon And Naomi [Show Preview]

Damon & Naomi

Damon And Naomi are headed to Seattle next Tuesday, and here are a few reasons you should go. First, of course, is their history. The duo was part of the epic band Galaxie 500. Second, their songs are filled with a mystical and orchestrated folk beauty. Just listen to the lovely “Cruel Queen” and the epic “My Flower”. (The latter jumps off the map in the bridge with a wicked noisy flute part.) These are songs that simply BEG to be experienced live. Third, A Hawk & A Hacksaw is also on the bill. Fourth, they haven’t toured in quite a while. Fifth, they’ve got some new albums out (a triage of releases that feature their favorite tracks from their old days on Sub Pop. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, because I said so. Not convinced yet? Then there’s something seriously wrong with you. Period.
