Casiotone for the Painfully Alone! Friday

I know there is another great all-ages show going on this Friday over at the Fusion Cafe with some Vera favorites This Bike Is a Pipe Bomb, but we also have a great one that night.

Casiotone for the Painfully Alone is definitely a friend to all-ages music, as he frequently plays at like-minded venues including the Department of Safety in Anacortes tomorrow night.

Owen Ashworth, who is the one-man Casiotone comes to Seattle in support of a few excellent splits released in 2007 one with Foot Foot, and another with The Donkeys.

His theatrical electronic pop can be compared to groups like The Postal Service and Russian Futurists, as well as a number of groups from Portland who have followed in his footsteps. While, he doesn't exactly get the dance floor shaking quite like some other Portland artists would, he certainly puts on an interesting and enthralling performance. Tickets are moving quickly for this one, so be here, and be here early!
