You will know them as the string quartet that plays with Sigur Ros. They were on stage at Coachella last year with them and they played their own stuff as support for the rest of the Sigur Ros tour.

Very cool stuff and they are extremely inventive. They played a saw on stage last time I saw them.

Anyhoo ... they're doing a tour this Spring. Check them out !

You're welcome.

What's Seattle like for shows ? It seems most bands that play PDX play Seattle or vice versa. I've never been to a smaller show up there; what's the vibe like ?

They were good when the opened for Sigur Ros. And good with Sigur Ros. I might have to see them, if it doesn't conflict with the psychedelic bombast that is Acid Mother's Temple.

Seattle is great for small shows. We've got quite a few cool little venues from sweaty rock clubs like El Corazon (http://www.elcorazonseattle.com/) and the Crocodile (http://www.thecrocodile.com/) to medium sized places like Neumos (http://www.neumos.com/) and the Showbox (http://www.showboxonline.com/). They've each got their own quirks but I'd recommend them all for a visitor from Portland or anywhere actually...

The Triple Door (http://www.tripledoor.com/) is a beautiful old theater hidden underneath a fancy Thai restaurant just across the street from the Benaroya Hall (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benaroya_Hall). If you show up early enough you can get seated at a table up by the stage and served dinner and drinks. I did this for Isobel Campbell and had a wonderful evening.

If by "saw" you mean an actual saw that you cut wood with, I have a story about a band named M.I.R.V.

They are nuts and their singer plays the saw.

Saws are failrly commonly played in the music world. Especially in the psych-pop and old country genres.

The girl in the red dress in the vid above is also very pretty IIRC.
