At their recent appearance at the Anacortes Unknown music festival, Genders played a set that pulled even the most exhausted and jaded festivalgoers up off of what might as well have been a flypaper floor. They provided a much-needed spark to a weekend that was almost too laidback at times. Upcoming album tracks "Show Me" and "Oakland" are perfect examples of the band's ability to craft light and sunny psych-pop songs. Just when you think you get it, the band shifts gears and pummels you with a new level of hardened intensity. Doug Martsch & Co. must have felt similarly about the local four-piece and their Treefort Music Fest appearance earlier this year, as Built to Spill selected the band to support their upcoming national tour. Be sure to catch them tonight at the Doug Fir before they hit the road. CHIPP TERWILLIGER
