Seattle nightclubs stay jumping all year with quality local and international music. And that constant flow, like any frequent thing, can be taken for granted. But sometimes an exceptional cluster of shows makes you step back and consider how lucky we are to live here. This is one of those weeks. Here are three upcoming concerts less fortunate music fans in more obscure cities would kill to see.
Warning: these concerts are very hip.
The wildest young voice out of the London underground is the low-tenor belonging to Archy Marshall — a yelling, crooning, versatile weapon. The teenage rapper and hip-hop producer is fast gaining fame as a guitarist and singer, in a trio as King Krule. Debut album “6 Feet Beneath the Moon” dips into ska, singer-songwriter pop, and several indefinite, groovy genres. Live reviews have been uniformly positive.
King Krule performs with Willis Earl Beal at 8 p.m. Saturday at Barboza, 925 E. Pike St., Seattle; $12 (206-709-9442 or thethebarboza.com).More
