Closing Reception Performances

Music by Them Savages
Originally from Flagstaff Arizona, the band will be at Bellevue College to celebrate the closing of the yehaw’ exhibition at gallery space.

Jimmy Donnellan on Culturedvultures.com describes the band in this way:
“The best thing about Them Savages is how though they might be small in number, they produce the kind of sound that could fill a stadium. Whether it’s the ferocious and full vocals or the deep, oddly hollow yet replete instrumentation, they have a distinctive sound and one that should grab your attention and refuse to let go until you start bobbing your head. If you need proof of just how infectious Church Songs is, check out ‘Pretty Little Thief‘ towards the album’s rousing finale.”
