I originally got tickets to this show wanting to see Peter Buck solo at an intimate venue and of course to see Young Fresh Fellows. Last time “The Baseball Project” played in Seattle, Kurt Bloch got on the stage and had a blast with them. So I was quite excited about this night.
When I got there, I found that Peter Buck had bailed out and the Trip Wires will be filling in for him. The Trip Wires put up a fantastic show. They were tight and having a lot of fun. Following them were Seattle veterans “Girl Trouble”. Kinda embarrassing, but it was my first time seeing Girl Trouble. They have a unique style and were really good.
Early in the YFF set, Scott McCaughey promised the crowd that this was going to be a great show. And boy, did they live upto the expectations. Guitar playing is so natural for these guys – both Kurt and Scott. To say they are very tight is an understatement. It was a really good show. I am certainly going to go see them the next time I have a chance.
