Fleet Foxes Get Signed; Grand Archives Prepare Assault

Selections from Reverb, our local music and nightlife blog.

Fleet Foxes Sign With Sub PopAs of 11 a.m., Friday morning, Fleet Foxes (proud disclosure: the band is fronted by my brother, Robin Pecknold) are now signed to Seattle's Sub Pop Records.Says A&R lady Sue Busch, "I feel very proud to welcome Fleet Foxes to the Sub Pop family. It's been so amazing watching them grow as a band, and I know they have a lot of exciting times ahead of them. I'm so glad we get to be a part of it."It's been an exciting and busy week for the band, who wrapped up the recording of their EP Sun Giant yesterday (it will be available on their upcoming 43-date—yikes—tour with Blitzen Trapper) and saw There Will Be Blood three times.Congratulations to both.-- Aja PecknoldGrand Archives Announce CD-Release Show at Triple DoorIn celebration of their Sub Pop-released debut full-length, the Grand Archives will hit the respectable stage of the Triple Door on Feb. 20, and will be joined, appropriately, by Mat Brooke's former Carissa's Wierd bandmates, Sera Cahoone (as herself) and Jenn Ghetto (with her band S).It will certainly be a lovely setting to see the GA boys in all their harmonic glory, along with a full string and horn section for the special event.And S!! I can't even remember how long it's been since the last time I saw the achingly beautiful darkness that Miss Ghetto brings to the stage with this project. Unfortunately, former S drummer Creighton Barrett (currently in Band of Horses), who humorously softened his usual ham-fisted thrashing for her material, won't be here for the show, but it will be worth it nonetheless.Feb. 20, Triple Door, 8 p.m. $15.-- Aja Pecknold
