Iji, Marvelous Good Fortune, Nick Neihart, Drew Danburry 

When: Mon., Aug. 4, 7:30 p.m. 2014
Price: $7
To get the full effect of the music created by prolific Seattle-dweller Zach Burba, the mastermind behind Iji, make sure to listen while looking at his Seashoes comics, found under the "Dribbles" section of his website, Burba's tunes—heard most recently on 2013's Unltd. Cool Drinks—are easy-on-the-ears, lo-fi pop ditties made with his conversational singing voice, synths, drums, saxophone and other interesting sound snippets (he plays many of the instruments himself), and they pair perfectly with his quirky drawings of dogs, dinosaurs and musicians. His lyrics are sometimes imagery-rich vignettes, sometimes nonsensical, but they're always poetic, as he sings about his observations of the world, snacks and playing music. Check out the piano-rich "Hush Puppy" and the spacey "Magic Lanes." Also on the bill are excellent local singer-songwriters Nick Neihart (of Pentagraham Crackers) and Drew Danburry, as well as Marvelous Good Fortune. (Kolbie Stonehocker, City Weekly)
