 Third band (12 pm): Midday Veil

Eluding tidy categorization, Seattle synth-rock purveyors Midday Veil draw from an ever-deepening well of influences including krautrock, folk, drone, blues, noise, new age, psych, metal, and various kinds of non-western and traditional music. The band began as the duo of David Golightly (synths) and Emily Pothast (vocals + guitar). The current lineup also includes Timm Mason (aka Aphonia/Debacle solo artist Mood Organ) on baritone guitar and Chris Pollina on drums and the occasional banjo. They just released a new CD titled Eyes All Around

“Midday Veil keep on ascending to higher levels of heightened-awareness psychedelia that’s as beautiful and majestic as a satellite photo of Jupiter’s moons.” – Dave Segal, The Stranger
