TRIPPY, MAN >>>

When researching a band, it's always a good sign when I leave its YouTube videos or SoundCloud clips on play, leaving the computer with the music still blasting as I chat on the phone or grab a snack. It means the band is listenable. Elbow Coulee has been on for about 45 minutes now with their synth-rock, psychedelic, dance-oriented jams grooving right along with the rain pounding on the window, rhythmic and soothing. Tonight, they invite you to "Get Basted!" at a Turkey Day pre-funk show with the Dead Kenny G's. If the name "Dead Kenny G's" is not indicative enough for you, this punk jazz band trio will blow minds with their saxophone, driving drums, electric guitar and nice tattoos.

Elbow Coulee's Andrew Tuller talks about playing with the nationally recognized band.

"We're a little intimidated," he chuckles, "While we're confident in our music and we want people to dance - we always get people up and moving. Dead Kenny G's will get people dancing too, but if they don't know what to expect, it's in kind of an awkward amazement. But, we're excited to play."

Stuff yourself with some good music, and brace yourself for the rest of the week.

THE OLYMPIA BALLROOM, TUESDAY, NOV 20, 8:30 P.M., $10, $8 STUDENT, 116 LEGION WAY, SE, OLYMPIA, 360.359.8636.
