Filed under: Music | Tags: , , ,

Seattle Weekly
In stride with Seattle Weekly’s West Seattle issue, Seattle band The Young Evils wrote a tribute song to the neighborhood where they just so happen to live. The dastardly duo came up with a triumphant track after only 24 hours and shared it with the world (or West Seattle rather) at Skylark café and club. They entitled the ditty “West Seattle Wins the Battle” and somebody captured the performance on camera which you can see for yourself below. Also, be sure to show them your support this Saturday, January 22, at the Tractor Tavern for the band’s first headlining gig.
