Head, Thee Manipulators, Creem City, the Neon Wilderness
(Funhouse) About Head, Sean of the Spits says, "One of the best bands, EVER, from this weird city of ye olde Space Needle." Head sound like the Ramones onstage with the Angry Samoans. They've been around since the early '90s but don't play out that often anymore. This show is a benefit for another punk classic, Memphis's Goner Records (Gone-er, not Go-ner), more specifically for its co-owner Zac Ives. Two years ago, Ives's 4-year-old daughter, Anna, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. After years of supporting the scene with his label, mail order, and store (think Guitar Wolf, Reatards, the King Khan & BBQ Show, Oblivians, Nobunny), Ives is asking different musicians to return the favor in the form of benefit shows across the U.S. This is the Seattle chapter; it's only $7. Go.
