Yacht Rock on Thursday

Three Imaginary Girls are sponsoring an evening of Yacht Rock at Neumo's. It's an all-star line up of Seattle faves paying tribute to that oh-so-smooth sound of the 1970s and 1980s.

Lots of SPB faves are participating, including folks from Central Services, The Small Change and Young Sportsmen. Here's the full band list:

The Dudley Manlove Quartet
The Heavy Hearts
The Leisure Suits (mems of Central Services and Math & Physics Club)!
Tim Seely
The Dusty 45s
The Young Sportsmen
Aaron Mannino
Burning Rivers
The Small Change

If you're not hip to the Yacht Rock, here's wikipedia's blurb, and I've added a link to a youtube search for you to see the series yourself:

"Yacht rock" is a name for the popular soft rock that peaked between the years of 1976 and 1984. Significant "yacht rockers" include Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins, Christopher Cross, and Toto. While the music has existed for years, popular usage of the term yacht rock is relatively new, coming into circulation through the online comedy series of the same name.
