After you have put the kids to bed on Sunday, check out Duff McKagan at The Showbox. He is best known for his years in Guns n' Roses, but he got his start right here in Seattle. His new solo album, which came out last month, is called Tenderness.

Versing's full length album 10,000 came out on the Seattle label Hardly Art, last month. They head out on tour in support of the album later this month. Versing is currently on my list for my top favorite local bands and they'll be at KEXP Studios on Monday.
Tues, 6/18 at 12:00 PM - The Black Tones at KEXP
Another one of my current favorite local bands is The Black Tones. They'll be playing at KEXP in-studio on Tuesday. Be sure to also check out their new album Cobain and Cornbread. You can also catch lead singer and guitarist Eva Walker as host of Audioasis, which plays Saturday nights on KEXP.
The Black Tones are also going to be performing at Capitol Hill Block Party.
