My Goodness

I’m going to go ahead and say that anytime you fuse blues and punk, it’s going to sound awesome. The White Stripes? The Kills? Black Keys? Come on. It’s a combination that’s guaranteed to express spirit, fire, and soul. The Seattle guitar-and-drum duo My Goodness is one such killer combo. It’s unfortunate that all you can hear right now of Joel Schneider’s ripping guitar riffs and tough vocals and Ethan Jacobsen’s vigorous rhythms are a few songs on their MySpace page, but the band recently told us that their self-titled debut should be out sometime in February. Until then, they’re kicking of 2011 with some good deeds at SW’s Happy Hour for Hope tonight at the bar slash all-veggie restaurant Highline (proceeds will benefit Brotherton Cadillac’s Race for a Ride charities), where the twosome will turn up their amps for a heavy and heady set. I hope all you vegans bring earplugs. ERIN K. THOMPSON
