Vancouver’s got those Olympics, but Thursday night we’ve got Vancouver’s, Swollen Members, for FREE! Apparently, there’s also Stoli and Sailor Jerry Drink Specials all night = another wild night at a free Neumos show.
Swollen Members has been making high intensity albums since the late 90′s, with big name collaborations, and just released a new album after a 3 year break. Tight lyrics, intriguing samples, and distinct voices from the two MCs, Mad Child and Prevail, are a given.
It seems a loss not have their on/off MC Moka Only in the mix; but that’s how it goes. Instead we get the accompaniment of several acts from up and down the west coast: potluck, Cool Nutz ,and Jay Barz (from Tacoma).
You may not have heard of Swollen Members; but I couldn’t get into a mid-day indoors show at the last Bumbershoot because the line wrapped around the building all the way until the end of their set.
Thursday Feb. 18 :: Doors at 8pm
FREE SHOW!!! :: 21+ :: Feat. Stoli and Sailor Jerry Drink Specials all night
