Live Review: Little Big Show #14, with Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Lower Dens, and Hibou 1/29

Every time a Little Big Show happens, our accomplishments seem to get bigger and better. Our must recent show, at Neptune Theatre last Friday, marks the fourteenth occasion on which Starbucks, STG, and KEXP have put their heads together to line up a crazy good show.

Live Review: HÆLOS with NAVVI at Sunset Tavern 1/27

You’ll wish you could say you were there. It was just one of those shows that all in attendance knew they were blessed by some kind of angelic beings to attend, as HÆLOS played for a respectably sized, though not packed, crowd at The Sunset Tavern last week. The UK trio decided to advance theirRead more…

Live Review: Ty Segall & the Muggers at the Neptune Theatre 1/21

If you happened to have watched KEXP’s Live Video stream of Ty Segall & the Muggers earlier this day, you’d have a pretty good sneak preview of the evening’s coming attractions at the Neptune Theatre: creepy baby mask, plenty of saliva, and some of the catchiest darn garage-punk out there today. As I sat inRead more…

Live Review: Shabazz Palaces with Camp Lo at Neptune Theatre on New Year’s Eve

The New Year has its own special meaning in the world of music. While most of the world is looking forward, it’s a time for many audiophiles to luxuriously look back as they compile lists of their favorite records, concerts and memorable moments from the year past.

Live Review: DeVotchKa with the Seattle Symphony at Benaroya Hall 1/12

From smaller clubs like The Crocodile and the Tractor Tavern to the luxurious concert venue of Benaroya Hall. “This is quite a step up from where we started in Seattle,” joked Nick Urata, frontman for DeVotchKa, as he stared out at the expansive room, seemingly sold out from floor to third tier balcony. And it’sRead more…

Live Review: The Juan Maclean with Marcus Marr and Pressha at Nectar Lounge 1/9/16

There are few better ways to ring in the new year than staying up until 2am dancing incessantly to furious house music. Thankfully for us, John MacLean and Marcus Marr agree with us, and this week’s The Juan MacLean show at the Nectar Lounge was a pretty fantastic way to kick off another year ofRead more…

Sasquatch! 2016 Launch Party with Charles Bradley, M. Ward and DJ Sassyblack at Neptune Theatre 1/11/16

How about that lineup, am I right?! Holy smokes, I don’t think I’ve seen an undercard that solid on a lineup in years. Good luck figuring your schedule out, everyone!

Live Review: Patti Smith at The Moore Theatre 1/5

“I’M FUCKING OLD!” shouted Patti Smith, the legendary Godmother of Punk, to the crowd at The Moore Theatre, her tiny fists raised to the ceiling. “And I hope I get even older!” In fact, when Smith shared her age to the audience (69 years old, as a matter of fact), it was hard to believe.Read more…

Live Review: HEALTH with Pictureplane and Ian Hicks at Neumos 12/8/15

HEALTH‘s new record Death Magic has a pretty significant lead up to it. After working on a third album for some time, the band got an opportunity to work on the soundtrack for Rockstar’s Max Payne 3, which they knocked out of the park in every plausible way. The extra time focused on production andRead more…
