The Green Pajamas will perform this Saturday, March 8th, at a KEXP benefit for Nick of Time Foundation which is dedicated to educating schools, athletes, families and communities about Sudden Cardiac Arrest.  The Pajamas will open the show at 9 o'clock followed by the bands, Campfire OK and Tango Alpha Tango at Ballard's Sunset Tavern.   


In 1988, Jeff Kelly of the Green Pajamas had a stack of songs -- many older, some new and fragmentary -- he wanted to commit to tape before the band moved on to their next album, and he had the idea of playing a show where the group could run through the tunes in question, record the gig, and release the results as a cassette...

"In 2013 Jasmine Records released a double CD containing all of Jimmy

Reed's singles for Vee Jay Records from 1953-1961. Nice liner notes, great

songs (25 singles, As & Bs) and you can really hear his influence on early

60s British blues and Dylan."

"Someone that I discovered this year, although it's not new (he died in

2009) is Vic Chessnutt.  Particularly this album, Dark Developments, which

is a collaboration with Elf Power from 2008."

This Winter's Night on Bandcamp















The first Green Pajamas Christmas song, This Winter's Night, is now available on Bandcamp. It was recorded in December 1984 in Joe Ross' bedroom with Joe, Jeff, Karl Wilhelm and a bunch of friends with two mics and a stereo cassette deck.  Joe and Jeff later did some overdubs of bells and percussion on Jeff's 4-track reel to reel.  Recorded before the PJs went to Green Monkey to record "Kim," the now famous waitress also gets a mention in this earlier release.  You can listen/buy it here: This Winter's Night


NOVEMBER: Terrascope Review
"This has got to be the strangest release in the PJs 30-year, 30-album discography. Back in 1987, Jeff Kelly came up with the idea of recording a live performance as a way of capturing the energy of a live gig for their fans and to preserve for posterity some old songs they never recorded along with some of the newer tracks they didn’t plan on recording any time soon..."
