Pretty Girls Make Graves, Death Cab for Cutie

When I saw Pretty Girls Make Graves last March, the Seattle band looked dead. The then-recent loss of guitarist Nathan Thelen took a huge chunk out of the synth-driven post-punk group, as singer Andrea Zollo walked around the stage like she had lead in her shoes, and guitarist Jay Clark looked trapped without a proper partner to unleash the band's gorgeous two-guitar melodies. Despite the disappointment, though, I'll still see them Sunday at Ridglea Theater. With seven months to adjust to Thelen's departure, they've already begun work on a new album, so I hold onto hope that the band will sport "back to normal" costumes this Halloween.
