UMS Night Three Travelogue: Light Travels Faster at TS Board Shop, Murder Pinchers at 3 Kings Tavern and more

UMS Travelogue, Night Thee
7.24.10 | Baker District/South Broadway

The TS Board Shop stage was really an augmented version of the truck that Jeremy Gregory of Bands for Lands and The Construct uses to put on shows anywhere and everywhere. This year, someone did something right, and the sound, despite being outside, was excellent. Seattle's Tea Cozies are easily one of the best guitar pop bands around. Probably because it isn't just the evocative vocal melodies employed by Jessi Reed and Brady Harvey and how catchy every song seems to be.
