Can You Imagine?

Our new CD, ROMANCE!, is now available!

Seattle’s own power-pop combo Can You Imagine? has opened for such national acts as the Cute Lepers, Harvey Danger, Barbara Manning and The Tom Price Desert Classic. Their music has been featured in an ad campaign for Real Networks and they have appeared on KEXP’s much-coveted live in-studio performances. Comic art legend/guitarist Peter Bagge and producer/keyboardist extraordinaire Steve Fisk are joined by vocalist Michelle Plaitis, bassist Rachel Frost and drummer Sue Merrill. Together they create mind-bending go-go boot rock with howlingly excellent lyrics by Bagge, Frost and Plaitis.

Thanks to all who saw us at the Royal Room last night. Great night for us, and great venue!
