Start your week off with some music tonight as THE RUMBLE: SEATTLE returns to the comfy confines of the Havana Social Club in Capitol Hill.

This monthly indie rock night is FREE and highlights up-and-coming bands and is backed by the dream team of Seattle music supporters > The Stranger, Line Out, The Wig, Easy Street Records, Sound On The Sound and Trumer Pils.

This month we have a great 1-2 punch for you: MOTOPONY & CHASING KINGS.

Headlining the party is a band from Tacoma known as Motopony. Led by Daniel Blue, MOTOPONY are being compared to Broken Social Scene and Wilco. KEXP’s Richard Johnson has already jumped on this one, featuring “Seer” in his Song of the Day Podcast and recording a live session with the band back in January. We first heard them on John Richard's morning show and quickly became fans.

If you’ve been reading the Future Sounds blog at all over the past 6 months, you’re more than aware of our devotion to CHASING KINGS, so much so that we’ve tapped them to headline the West Coast leg of THE RUMBLE JUNE. Named one of the Top 20 Indie Bands in LA by The Deli Magazine, they’ve already shared the stage with Sea Wolf and conquered SXSW, where they played our parties as well as the Levi’s/Fader Fort. Comprised of four childhood friends, Matt Schwartz, Drew Beck, Mike Goldman and Nick Sandler, CHASING KINGS ooze a genuine enthusiasm for playing and crafting memorable melodies and harmonies that transcend whatever musical trend is penetrating the industry with The Pop Stereo calling them a “soaring breath of fresh air.” Schwartz continues to draw comparisons to Elvis Costello and Britt Daniel with vocal and key skills well beyond his years, especially on “Dark Sunglasses.”

Not only is the party FREE, there are TRUMER PILS beer specials all night!
