Special Explosion! boooooooom

February 15, 2011

If you grew up on the eastside of Seattle at the turn of the millennium then this band will wet your whistle.  Listening to Special Explosion will remind you of the “$6 cover, $5 if you bring a canned food,” Boat, and the Redmond Firehouse.  Gladly, Special Explosion’s ruthless young’n fuzz pop hasn’t died with the rise of the all-ages show in the downtown area.  These lads and las refuel your youth pool, a source we aging folk need to tap into more than ever (Arcade Fire on the grammys… that means we’re old).  Now I have no idea how old they actually are but they do play a ballsy Bazan cover that should give any amount of “props” needed. They will be opening for Deerhoof (damn!) on the 25th at Neumos.
