Boys and girls, The Lonely Forest knows how to rock! This weekend The Lonely Forest played three CD release shows and I was able to catch them at the Crocodile (pictures below) in Seattle and at the Bakerview in Bellingham. Both shows were great but there was definitely something about the intensity at the Crocodile (although I did want to hear I Blame Us and Now Onto Other News, but I suppose a kickin’ version of God is Dead made up for it…). If you ever have a chance, catch them live. John Van Deusen’s first EP and the band’s new EP are both great and their live shows are a great compliment to both of those releases. Stop by their website or their MySpace for music and show information. You can also check out my review of their EP John Van Deusen and the Lonely Forest.

And now for the pictures (clickable for larger versions) and video clips:

I got two great video clips [NOTE: LARGE FILE SIZE]: God is Dead (MOV file, 74.2 MB, 320×240 res) and Opium Blues (MOV file, 68.9 MB, 320×240 res)
