As I alluded to back in March, two '80s bands of Seattle proto-grunge lineage—the Thrown Ups and Mr. Epp and the Calculations— have joined forces in a semi-reunion-supergroup-kinda-thing they're calling the Thrown Epps. The night's players include Jo "Mr. Epp" Smitty, Mark Arm (yes, that Mark Arm), John Leighton Beezer, Ed Fotheringham, Scott Schickler, and Michael Falhauber, but who knows who else might show up?
No future shows are currently booked, but nerds can dream: It may not be a one-off. Vocalist Jo Smitty says the performance will be recorded and released, and they have talked about recording with "godfather of grunge" Jack Endino (he recorded unknowns like Nirvana, Soundgarden, Tad), but anything is possible at this point. This could be the ultimate #grunge2 reunion show, at the Central Saloon, of all places— so don't miss out.
