Massy Ferguson Returns to the Red Bicycle

Massy Ferguson is excited to come play the Red Bicycle Bistro for the second time in the last year. The first time the roots rockers were scheduled to play the venue last October, they had to cancel after they found out they had won a Seattle Weekly poll that sent the band to represent Seattle in the Iceland Airwaves Festival in Reykjavik. They were able to reschedule and play the Bike once they got back from their fantastic trip to Iceland.

Massy Ferguson’s Iceland Airwaves Festival experience saw them get flown over free and also receive accomodations and prizes. MF performed along with groups ranging from Swedish pop star Robyn, U.S. electronica act Neon Indian and U.K. indie folk rocker Jose Gonzales (Zero 7). They performed a set at Sodoma, the venue that hosted The Shins and The Bravery in past Airwaves festivals.

"It was a great experience" MF singer Ethan Anderson said. "We got to hear a bunch of great acts, eat some crazy food ... basically bum around and then play a gig. I’d do it again in a heartbeat."

Anderson and MF won the Seattle Weekly Reverb Festival poll, receiving the most votes for "vote for your favorite band," beating out 60 other Seattle bands.

Massy Ferguson most recently released a new album, "Hard Water," which received great reviews and heavy rotation on a number of national stations, including Seattle’s own KEXP. They we’re also voted as the #7 Album of the Year by, which called them America’s "next up and coming rock americana act."

This is an all-ages free cover show until 11pm, then 21+ after that.

Saturday, June 3. At the Red Bicycle, 17618 Vashon Hwy - 206-463-5959
