"…classic-rock guitar work melts into sunny vocal harmonies, creating songs that practically squirm with joy." - Magnet, Feb. 2003
2013 marks the fifteenth anniversary of the founding of Seattle independent record label Barsuk Records, and the tenth year since its release of When I Pretend To Fall, the indie-classic second album from Seattle indie rockers The Long Winters. Fronted by honorary Seattle cultural mayor John Roderick, and largely defined by his extraordinary songs that bring hooks and deft lyrical twists in equal measure, Roderick and his band have become an institution in the Pacific Northwest and around the world among fans of smart songwriting. (As Roderick says, “I like chairs that don’t creak and songs that don’t suck.”) The band (playing When I Pretend To Fall in its entirety) and label join together with other members of the fantastic Barsuk roster (including a very rare performance by Chris Walla, the Seattle debut of new Barsuk signing Minor Alps, and more) at Neptune Theater on November 8th as part of a four-night anniversary celebration that continues through the weekend at venues around Seattle.
This show and all three others will benefit Gilda's Club Seattle, a cancer support organization that provides free services for men, women, and children touched by cancer in our community, along with their families, friends and colleagues. Gilda's Club Seattle ensures that no one has to face cancer alone.
