Catch the Moondoggies for free

It’s hard to keep up with all the buzz-worthy bands in what appears to be The Second Coming of Seattle’s music scene. Next in line? Try the Moondoggies, favorites of KEXP’s John in the Morning and just this week proclaimed "our new favorite band from Seattle" by Rolling Stone "Smoking Section" blogger Austin Scaggs.

The Doggies are all over the place this weekend—and all for free. Early birds can hear the guys playing live for KEXP in Capitol Hill’s Caffe Vita at 9:30am this Friday, April 17. Then they’ve got a 2pm concert on the UW campus HUB Lawn. Head over to the Queen Anne Easy Street Records for a "secret" 5pm show on Saturday.

Although "Changing" seems to be the tune of choice from last year’s Don’t Be a Stranger CD, I thought I’d give you a peek of them delivering a hushed "Undertaker" instead since the video shows them at the Crocodile—where they’ll be playing on May 9 (not for free, sorry):

Thanks to Jess and Kelly for the good call.
