8th Annual KEXP BBQ with The Lonely Forest

For their annual summer blowout, KEXP snagged Anacortes boy wonder John Van Deusen and his irresistible indie-pop band The Lonely Forest. Normally a mainstay around Seattle’s live music scene, The Lonely Forest’s been AWOL since playing Sasquatch! in May. That’s because they’ve spent their summer jumping between L.A., San Francisco, and Portland recording The Lonely Forest EP with Chris Walla – the EP will be released on September 14th, marking the band’s first release since signing with Trans, Walla’s Atlantic Records imprint. The boys are sure to play some of that new material at today’s event, along with favorites from last year’s breakout We Sing the Body Electric. Oh, and girls? I know it’s hard, but keep your hands to yourselves – as of last month Van Deusen is also a newlywed. With The Joy Formidable, Dinosaur Feathers, Victor Shade, Suckers, Quasi. THOMPSON
