Ladies and gentlemen, welcome, welcome, to 75 Bands in 75 Days, where we’re showcasing some of the best talent that the Pacific Northwest has to offer, at least one band per day, leading up to December 31st, to ring in a new year. This list is in no particular order and it is not a chart or a countdown. It’s merely a list of bands or musicians that we feel are worthy of checking out. The band for day 71 is a band called Furniture Girls
Furniture Girls is a band from Seattle that plays a funky blend of alternative electro-rock. Their innate ability to connect with fans and fellow musicians alike has made them one of the most respected and sought-after bands in Seattle’s music community. With a seasoned lineup that includes lyricist/lead vocalist stayC Meyer, bassist/producer Jim Watkins, drummer Thane Mitchell, guitarist Jason Lightfoot and vocalist Kate Bradley, the band has been filling clubs across the U.S. with audiences hungry for something dynamic and different since 2007.
In that time, Furniture Girls have been a mainstay on Seattle’s music scene, serving as the hand-picked local support band for national artists like Linda Perry, Presidents of the United States of America, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Hunter Valentine, Vintage Trouble, Sky Cries Mary, Super Sonic Soul Pimps and My Life with the Thrill Kill Cult. They’ve also made annual appearances at South by Southwest, performed with Capital Cities at the legendary Roxy Theatre in West Hollywood, and showcased at Heart of Texas Rockfest, Seattle Weekly’s REVERB Festival, Noise for the Needy, Bite of Seattle, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Seattle Marathon and the University District Street Fair.
