Seismic Rad-Libs: Brent Amaker
Who say’s Seattle ain’t got no cowboy’s. Not only do we got em, this one in particular can play a mean a guitar, and has a baritone that makes panties drop, and even some briefs. The beloved Brent Amaker & The Rodeo have a new album called “Please Stand By” coming out on October 19th, and the only proper way to unveil it, is to throw a shindig at the legendary Crocodile Cafe for the City Arts and Heineken sponsored City Arts Festival, that runs October 20th through the 23rd. He doesn’t saturate the Seattle music scene with his great performances, so catch this party before it heads to Europe for a stint, because rumor is, the performances put on by these five cowboys are as entertaining as the songs themselves. Its gonna be the most civilized hoe down in downtown Seattle, or will it? I was able to “lasso” (bad I know) Brent into doing this Wednesday’s edition of Rad-Libs where he gives it to us straight.
