Former Stranger writer Jas Keimig wrote: "Built to Spill was the band that all my dude friends in junior high said they listened to before they started a band of their own. In that way, maybe Built to Spill is the West Coast's answer to the Velvet Underground. Okay, I'm mostly kidding about that one, but now that I'm thinking about it, 1999's Keep It Like a Secret seems to be the progenitor of so much of modern indie rock's sound, that it's almost like I've seen the band live before. But I haven't. Go and luxuriate in the sounds of flannel, beanies, and earnest angst." Doug Martsch's indie rock troupe will take over the Showbox for a two-night stint with support from longtime Seattle rock band the Purdins and post-punk quartet Prism Bitch.
