Live Review: Caribou with Koreless at Showbox at the Market 3/4/2015

Truly, we can’t do without you, Dan Snaith. With a discography 15 years deep and only getting sweeter with time, any chance to see Snaith in any venue under any of his monikers is an incredible blessing. In fact, I bet he could have sold just as many tickets throwing a DJ set as DaphniRead more…

Live Review: Kim Gordon at Neptune Theatre 3/2/15

So, as you’ve probably heard by now, when legendary lady Kim Gordon took the stage at The Neptune earlier this week in support of her new memoir, Girl in a Band, it ended up being… well, kind-of weird. On her nationwide tour, the former Sonic Youth bassist had different interviewers in each city: drummer extraordinaireRead more…

Live Review: Flight Facilities with Beat Connection at Showbox at the Market 2/21/15

There’s this interview reel with Rod Serling that plays over the intro of Flight Facilities opening dance number “Two Bodies” on their debut LP, Down To Earth. Here, the famous Twilight Zone narrator reconciles the ideas of commercialism and creativity as the house beat fades in and Emma Louise sings straight to your soul. IRead more…

Live Review: Body Language at Barboza 2/17/15

There’s only so many ways I can say it: Brooklyn dance outfit Body Language deserves to be twice as big as they are in every way. Almost seven years into their band’s career, two LPs and a handful of excellent EPs and singles to their name all with massively different character and direction, Body LanguageRead more…

Live Review: Pharmakon with Garek Jon Druss, Pink Void, and DJ Sharlese at Kremwerk 2/20/15

Seattle noise fans know when you see “Debacle Records presents” at the top of a show poster, you are in for something. New York’s Pharmakon may be on the fantastic Sacred Bones Records, but I think she’d be welcomed with open arms into a lasting relationship with Debacle Records, who supplied the rest of theRead more…

Live Review: Ariel Pink with Jack Name at Neumos 2/10/15

Where do you draw the line between the man Ariel Rosenberg and Ariel Pink, the rock icon and sex god character he’s brewed up to give to all of us over the last 15 years? That’s not a rhetorical question – honestly, I couldn’t tell you. I don’t think there’s a good answer. But thenRead more…

Sasquatch! 2015 Launch Party with Ty Segall, TacocaT, & The Young Evils at Neptune Theatre 2/2/2015

Every year, Seattle gets a small taste of Sasquatch! Music Festival at home four months before the festival takes place. Sasquatch! Launch Party is a great event every single year, both with or without context. As the rain beats down on the dreariest months of the Seattle year, we all dream of Memorial Day weekend,Read more…

Live Review: Bass Drum of Death with Chastity Belt and Bad Motivators at Tractor Tavern 1/28/15

A mosh pit of all smiles is a beautiful and wonderful thing. Real mosh pits are great to start with. Not fake circle pits where following the leader dominates any true form of atomic self expression, but a real “I drank a little too much and don’t mind being throw around by the couple peopleRead more…

Live Review: RL Grime with Lunice at Neptune Theater 1/22/15

The problem with cool stuff is there’s always a process by which it becomes uncool. A handful of true artists perfect a craft and then an uncanny number of hackneyed copycats sample bits and pieces out of context and bastardize the whole thing to no end. This is maybe no better exemplified than with modernRead more…

Live Review: Death Cab for Cutie with Say Hi at The Crocodile 1/20/15

Death Cab for Cutie is a band that embodies change. From the light-hearted melancholy of “Photobooth” to the heavy-handed post-marital blows of “Cath…”, Death Cab have shown us hundreds of ways in which circumstances shift and we find ourselves to be different people when the light changes. We might discover newfound strength through the painsRead more…
