At every Grammies show the phrase "Thank you for coming" repeats from the PA, but this week at Holocene it'll be for the last time. The experimental duo (who are often compared to Flying Lotus) are drummer Dan Sutherland and saxophonist Noah Bernstein. Grammies' foundations lay in jazz and R&B, but they rip these apart for an effect that's smart, playful, and otherworldly. They've never taken themselves too seriously, even though they stand out as one of the tightest original jazz groups to crop up in the Northwest recently. They've released two fantastic full-lengths, Award Winning and Great Sounding, as well as a Banana Stand live album. But don't let these records be your only experience with Grammies—see them for yourself, before they drift off into the night as a memory of a "great sounding" band. JENI WREN STOTTRUP
