It's been rather quiet with The Long Winters news since John Roderick announced that he is running for citywide Position 8 on the Seattle City Council. But if you thought this meant John's guitar days are over, think again.
On Thursday July 23 at the fabulous Triple Door, an all-ages rock-show will feature John and co. in the first The Long Winters set in who-knows how long! We'll be joined be the amazing Stereo Embers, as well as other special guests, some of whom we cannot yet speak of.
Join us for a night of Rock n Roll and Postage Awareness, as we celebrate the arrival of everyone's ballots by mail. Let's get them filled out and sent back! For you younger folks we'll be selling "stamps" which are small squares of paper that you affix to your ballot, enabling it to be mailed. Ask your parents.
Show time: 7pm-9.30pm.
John Roderick was a guest on Song Exploder, where he talked about his song The Commander Thinks Aloud from the Ultimatum ep, in honor of the last flight of the Columbia. Song Exploder is a podcast hosted by Hrishikesh Hirway, where musicians take apart their songs, and piece by piece, tell the story of how they were made. The interview was recorded with a live audience.
