THE PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, THE DEPOT, Friday, July 22, 9 p.m., $20
I never would have thought 20 or so years ago that the Presidents of the United States of America would still be touring in 2014. Even though the Seattle band was massively successful when they burst on the scene with their self-titled debut, their catchy singles like "Lump," "Peaches" and "Kitty" seemed like they would be most remembered for their quirky videos and subject matter, rather than as the calling cards of a long-running band that has found a new lease on the life the past few years. After spending the better part of a decade apart, the Presidents reformed for sporadic gigs in their hometown before slowly expanding to full-blown U.S. tours. Earlier this year, they released an album of new material, Kudos to You, that captures the trio's power-pop chops in fine form--just like the old days. July Talk opens the show.
