CHOP SUEY Presents:
A BENEFIT FOR PHILIPPINES ft.
THE REDWOOD PLAN
Seattle combo The Redwood Plan conquered hearts, ears, and dancing feet with its 2010 full-length Racing Towards the Heartbreak. Propelled by succinct, melodic hooks and riffs, songs like “Push” leapt forth from the speakers and defied listeners to forget them. On Green Light Go, the music of the Seattle quartet evolves further, revealing a denser, dynamic, and more eclectic sound, one that more fully reflects the aesthetics of the musicians behind it. “It’s still very much the Redwood Plan, but bigger and more dynamic,” insists front woman Lesli Wood. A synthesis of punk rock energy and bristling electronic sounds, one that accommodates both guitarist Sydney Stolfus’ background in metal bands and Lesli’s riot grrrl roots.
Gems, a Seattle based rock band, lays down deep danceable grooves full of twists and turns underneath a canopy of haunting synthesized mayhem unlike anything you’ve ever heard. Two drummers, Adrian Van Batenburg and Jacob Evans, provide the foundation of syncopated interweaving rhythms, while two keyboardists, Gary Palmer and Dan Rapport, build melodic and bass heavy songs around it. A unique sonic experience you will not soon forget.
HEARTS ARE THUGS
We are Hearts Are Thugs. We are E. P. Low, Erin Bednarz and Greg Collinsworth. We are from Seattle, WA. We are two guitars, two vocals, a synthesizer and a drum machine. We play loud, dark, rhythmic pop. In addition to our music, we enjoy clothes, food and drink – often to excess.
