Live Review: Little Big Show #8 feat. Washed Out, Kingdom Crumbs, & Kisses at Neptune Theatre 1/31/14

On Friday, the Little Big Show made its return with a sold out gig with a stellar, diverse lineup, and raising funds for a wonderful charity. Each couple months, KEXP teams up with STG and Starbucks to put on these incredible events, where no less than 100% of tickets sold benefit the charity selected. ForRead more...

Live Review: Sasquatch! Launch Party feat. Cold War Kids, St. Lucia, Sir Sly, & Pete and Derek (of The Cave Singers) at Neptune Theatre 2/3/2014

This year’s Sasquatch! Launch Party was a pretty spectacular event from beginning to end. It goes without saying that the two minutes right before Cold War Kids came on made the whole night. Seriously, the lineup for Sasquatch! this year is incredible beyond words. Both weekends are going to be a spectacle and it goesRead more...

Live Review: Timbrrr Music Festival 1/10-11/14

Review by Morgen Schuler Earlier this month, the Seattle music scene and fans alike took the show on the road to the Bavarian wonderland of Leavenworth. Why would we bother driving nearly three hours to a small town? To start a new tradition, a winter music festival dubbed Timbrrr Music Festival... pretty catchy. I’m sureRead more...

Live Review: Volcano Choir w/ The Cloak Ox at Neptune Theatre 1/25/14

“I brought tissues.” That’s what the girl next to me told her friends as she reached into her bag and started dishing out Kleenex. At any other show, the action might have been silly, but not tonight. Tonight, Volcano Choir, the spectacular collaboration between Bon Iver and Collections of Colonies of Bees, took the NeptuneRead more...

Live Review: Darkside w/ High Water and Nordic Soul at Neumos 1/22/14

I don’t know if there is a physical, mental, or spiritual way to come away from a Darkside show unaffected. Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington brought their two-man gateway to musical nirvana to Neumos Wednesday night for a sold out show and wowed the room from the first second to the last. The building shookRead more...

Live Review: Colin Meloy w/ John Roderick at Neptune Theatre 1/22/14

The guy from The Long Winters, and the guy from The Decemberists... when you put it like that, it’s not exactly the most attractive double-bill during an already-cold, dark season in the Pacific Northwest. Were Coldplay, Snow Patrol, or Iceage not available? They should have billed it “The Seasonal Affective Disorder Tour 2014.” Their mascotRead more...

Live Review: Foster the People w/ Tom Eddy at Crocodile 1/19/14

Sunday night was a great one for Seattleites pretty much every kind. The Seahawks’ final playoffs game against the Forty-Niners stayed tight throughout, but in the end, the Hawks emerged victorious and everyone in Seattle jumping and shouting in the streets. But perhaps the luckiest of the these made their way over to the CrocodileRead more...

Live Review: Damien Jurado w/ Naomi Wachira at Neptune Theatre 1/17/14

Thinking of those who define the present-day Seattle music scene, musicians like Damien Jurado, who not only call the city home but who have influenced, promoted, and produced other local artists’ music, come to mind. Jurado’s soul-searching folk ballads have earned him a wholehearted embrace from his fans. What better way to kick off hisRead more...

Live Review: Rustie w/ Dutty Wilderness at Barboza 12/17/13

Weighing Barboza’s Tuesday night festivities by pictures alone would be a crime. What you don’t see behind camera - in view of the focused eyes of Russell Whyte and Reed Juenger - is a bloody marvelous party. There’s little-to-no room to move or breathe, dozens of couples or just-mets dancing together and laughing along, fratRead more...

Live Review: Waxahatchee w/ Swearin’ and Dead Bars @ Chop Suey 11/27/2013

Up and coming sister bands Waxahatchee and Swearin’ gave us a lovely night this past Wednesday at Capitol Hill’s Chop Suey. It was a short and sweet set that the audience won’t forget any time soon as they swayed and bobbed to the piercing lyrics and layered instruments - loud in the best possible way.
