Daniel Blue Reemerges... in Seattle?

This went out on the City of Tacoma's arts listserve the other day. Rumors isn't sure what to make of it. It sounds like Tacoma's multitalented, multifaceted Daniel Blue has come out with a new band which will have its premiere in Seattle. It's hard to understand why the creator of the now collectible Hipster 253 t-shirts would leave Tacoma. Bigger market? Lucrative contract? Higher concentration of hipsters? These all could be factors, but we just may never know for sure.

Here's the email:

Subject: [TacomaArt] Daniel Blue Reemergence

Have you heard of the new rock-poet band Motopony?

Motopony is a new creative manifestation of ex-fashionisto Daniel Blue and ex-party rocker Robby Rebel, and it's really f*&^%$ng good.

I'm sure many of you remember the extravagant fashion shows involving music and dance put on by Daniel Blue's Loyalty Conglomerate.

Daniel has been in the studio for the past nine months creating his latest project and the result will astound you.

He has taken all of his poetic genius and mashed it into an musical weaving of Cash meets Donovan.

I can tell you I can't get what I've heard out of my head, and I cannot wait to get an album copy for myself.

Tacoma, this isn't a debut stolen from you, it's a sneaking peek at something truly great, and it's happening in a few days, in Seattle.

Come to this acoustic set at the 108 Occidental Gallery, this Thursday August 28th at 8pm.

This show we are so privileged to host is a supportive measure for this independent, un-funded gallery, right in the heart of that art scene just to the North.

Suggested donation of $5, but with gas and what not, your attendance is quite enough.

Just because he is going debut in Seattle does not mean he's going to go 206 on us.

This is an interesting line though:

These may help to illustrate.

I believe the artist Robby is on the left.

think of it as missionary work to save the people of Seattle.

We went and saw Motopony. Daniel and Robbie really have a uniques sound. This is bound to rock your socks off or panties? I dunno. It was awesome!
