Anyone else notice that Seaweed is headlining the newly revamped Crocodile Cafe on Aug. 7? Well, that’s not the only good news for fans. Sound engineer extraordinaire Mike Corvin tells me the Weedsters will soon head back to Tacoma’s Sound West Audio to work on the comeback album they’ve been plotting since 2007. Maybe they can knock the rest of that thing out with singer Aaron Stauffer in town for a couple of months.
Don’t call it a comeback! Seaweed’s Wade Neal (foreground) and Jesse Fox with sound engineer Mike Corvin, working on their first album in years back in ’07. Since this shot was taken, the band has played several well-received comeback shows, including big sets at Bumbershoot, Sub Pop’s 20th anniversary festival and Tacoma’s Hell’s Kitchen.
