The big event of the week, of course, was the 7th Annual Yule Benefit last Saturday. The Thermals, The Cave Singers, The Builders & The Butchers, and Grand Hallway all performed brilliantly during this completely sold-out event! Photographer Jim Bennett captured these great shots...

How brilliant was Dick Dale on Friday, though? Holy $#@&!!! The 72-year old was smokin’! And, boy, could he talk, often quite amazingly about his past and his creative process. Look for more on this (video, podcast, etc. in the weeks to come). [more]

For his last appearance on KEXP as a local artist, Shane Tutmarc performed solo on Swingin’ Doors. Though we’ll miss the Seattle native when he moves to Nashville next month, we know he’ll be back to play the Northwest soon enough. Good luck, Shane! [more]
