The guys are absolutely in love with Recess Monkey since we saw them in concert at Teatro Zinzanni last year and we were recently sent their new album, (their 9th!!! by the way!) Deep Sea Diver to check out. The tunes are really catchy and I know I’ve heard them sing one of them called “Fish Sticks” a few times around the house.
This past weekend we checked them out at the Folk Life Festival (It’s totally festival season in Seattle and it’s so exciting!) even though it was pouring rain. It’s usually one of our favorite Seattle festivals because it’s so low key. With good food and good music everywhere you turn it’s always a lot of fun.
I’m excited to see what their release party will be like in a few weeks. It’s at the Naval Undersea Museum in Keyport, Washington (I still need to figure out where this is-it sounds like it’s about 25 minutes from Bainbridge Island) and if you’re out that way, you’ll even get to explore a submarine!!
