Live Review: Modest Mouse with Mimicking Birds at the Paramount Theatre 8/25

For longtime followers of the band, it’s a little strange that Modest Mouse has now spent more time as a big-name ticket than a scrappy indie rock band from Issaquah, but in retrospect, the band’s current status goes along with Modest Mouse’s singular trajectory.

Live Review: Wilco with Jenny Lewis at Marymoor Park 8/11

This year is Wilco‘s twentieth anniversary, but the posit of Wilco merely being a band for two decades is a somewhat reductive statement – across their career, they’ve covered as much musical ground (and employed as many personnel) as three or four bands. They started out as alt-country lifers trying to keep at the forefrontRead more…

If there’s another performer who has received two standing ovations for a single song at the Moore, Jason Isbell should call them and see if they’ll go for best two out of three, because chances are that he’ll win. The revitalized Southern songwriter is at a career high at the moment, and no other songRead more…
