Night of Musical Madness 2009 featuring Art Brut and Brent Amaker and the Rodeo

You remember the Night of Musical Madness, don’t you?

What’s that? You don’t know what the Night of Musical Madness is. Well, loyal  readers will recall that my annual Night of Musical Madness is the one night a year when I attempt to catch two shows in the same night. It all started back in 2007 when I won tickets to see Art Brut and the Hold Steady at the University of Washington and was invited to catch Rakim and Ghostface Killah at the Showbox on the same night. I’m not one to turn down a good show, so I drove 348 miles round trip to see both concerts. It was such a wild experience that I decided to do it again last year, so on a cold December night I caught Metallica at KeyArena and then drove to Showbox SoDo to see Wu-Tang Clan immediately after the Metallica show.

This year I’m doing it again and the two shows I’ll be indulging my ears in are Brent Amaker and the Rodeo with The Valley and others at the Comet Tavern and Art Brut and Miike Snow at Neumos (you can hear more about these shows on Candy Cast, Ear Candy’s podcast). The great thing about both of these shows is that they are part of the annual Noise for the Needy concert series, which means the money I am spending on tickets will benefit Transitional Resources, a West Seattle organization that provides transitional housing, jobs and other services for mentally ill adults. The Noise for the Needy shows start Wednesday and the full listing of concerts can be seen here.
