Live Review: Andrew W.K. with The Fabulous Downey Brothers at Barboza 6/29/15

Andrew W.K. is a brilliant capitalist. Need proof? Here’s one: he’s still a cultural zeitgeist even now in 2015. Generations have come to Andrew through a stunning variety of mediums. You may know him from his now-classic 2001 party soundtrack to end all party soundtracks I Get Wet, or from his contemplative Village Voice columnRead more…

Live Review: Shy Girls with P. Morris at Barboza 5/28/15

Something felt different in the Neumos basement last week as the crowd packed in to see Shy Girls. The Portland electronic act, led by Dan Vidmar, has been around for a couple years, dropping lush EPs including the lauded Timeshare, making earnest love songs for the introspective bedroom-ridden listener. But the crowd tonight wasn’t hereRead more…

Live Review: Unknown Mortal Orchestra with Nurses at Barboza 5/9/15

For almost five years now as Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Ruban Nielson has been learning how to give himself away. On his eponymous debut, it was from behind the closed door of a bedroom, where we heard psychedelic funk gems muffled through the wall and wanted to know more. On 2013’s II, the door cracked aRead 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…

KEXP Suggests: Body Language at Barboza 2/17/15

Brooklyn electronic group Body Language will be throwing a dance party in Barboza. You need to be there. If you are unfamiliar, jump to the band’s Soundcloud and begin familiarizing.

Live Review: Alvvays with Absolutely Free at Barboza 12/2/14

Toronto indie rock band Alvvays introduced themselves to Seattle in quite a dazzling fashion Tuesday night. This was the band’s last US show on the tour supporting their fantastic self-titled debut (out now on Polyvinyl) before heading up across the border to finish things off before the end of the year. The sold out crowdRead more…

Live Review: Trust with Mozart’s Sister at Barboza 4/28/14

The whole time I drove home from the Trust show, I kept looking in the rearview expecting to see cops trying to get me to pull over. In fact, I don’t think the strobing reds and blues have stopped in my brain since the show ended, even two days later. Red and blue and redRead more…

Live Review: Factory Floor with DVA Damas and Stres at Barboza 4/8/14

It’s been a long time coming, but British post-industrial trio Factory Floor have finally made it out to the US west coast. The band dropped their self-titled debut LP last year on DFA after releasing one-off singles and remixes in the current lineup for the better part of four years. Over the years, their unique,Read more…

Live Review: Mas Ysa w/ Lawrence Rothman & Zoolab at Barboza 2/19/14

For the small Barboza crowd that showed up to the Seattle debut of Mas Ysa, along with Lawrence Rothman, Wednesday night was a splendid display of left field musical prodigy. For those that didn’t, the joke’s on you – you most certainly won’t get a chance to see either of these two at such aRead 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…
