Pela @ Tractor Tavern

Billy soaks up the Seattle love

Went to the show with Mike and had dinner at Sam's Sushi, where I had a yummy dynamite roll. I don't remember what all was in it, but it was spicy.

The doors were supposed to open for The Tractor at 8:00 but didn't end up opening till about 8:45. All the Tractor had for cider was not so cold Strongbow in a can. After my wine party last night, Mike had decided to go on a week ban from drinking alcohol, which didn't last more than a day. That peer pressure is rough!

It was my first concert at the Tractor. Daniel G Harmann & The Trouble Starts was the opening band. I had checked out their myspace page before the concert and decided they were worth seeing. They seemed a little older in age for an indie band, but they sounded pretty good. There wasn't a whole lot of people there yet and still lots of room in front of the stage. The second they finished, Mike and I rushed to the front of the stage to get a good spot for Pela.

I saw Pela for the first time at last year's KEXP BBQ and they were awesome then and still going strong. It was nice to see them at a smaller venue and was my first "front row" concert. It was great, except for the drunk crazy dancing girl that was next to me. I guess it's to be expected when you're in the front row, but I think she spent more time talking/yelling to her friends during the concert than actually watching it. They played for about an hour and a half and hung out and drank with some fans after the show.

Looking forward to seeing some more concerts in Seattle. Thinking about Lightspeed at Chop Suey. Don't have plans yet for any other concerts.


  1. You can't go to a concert and not have a drink ;) But now I'm off. For at least a week.

  2. Since I don't drink I don't miss the booze at concerts--what used to really bug me were the guys at Pine Knob who would load cigars with weed and smoke them in the lawn seats. Since secondhand smoke shows up in testing I'd gotten pretty leery about who we tossed the blankets down next to when we saw Styx and REO Speedwagon there.
