Death Cab for Cutie

Friday, April 18

Bremerton's taken it on the chin plenty of times through the years (the “Bremelo” stigma, no home delivery of the NY Times, etc.). And, if you want to catch a show in Seattle, you have to choose between the 10:30 p.m. and 12:50 a.m. boat home. Residents have never been to a show without humping their watch, and running to the Coleman Dock. For a while, Bremerton housed EndFest, bringing acts like Radiohead, Korn, Offspring, and Kidrock to the neighborhood. But lately, the biggest thing to happen musically is the occasional appearance from MxPx, and Big Mouth Music's DIY shows featuring the likes of Rocky Votolato, Schoolyard Heroes, and Kane Hodder. When Death Cab takes the stage in frontman Ben Gibbard's hometown, Friday night, I don't believe I'm exaggerating when I say they'll be the only band in Admiral Theater history who can say, “Our last gig was at the KeyArena.” And it'll be one of the few shows of the year the Bremerton kids won't have to ask, “When's the next ferry?” With Cave Singers. Admiral Theatre, 515 Pacific Ave., Bremerton, 360-373-6743. CHRIS KORNELIS
