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.

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.

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: How to Dress Well w/ Sky Ferreira & High Highs @ Barboza 4/6/13

Saturday night, 12 bucks (a cheap cover at nearby clubs) bought you a night of chilled out, near-perfect indie pop bliss. Though How To Dress Well just swung through town a couple months ago, they returned with friends - namely, rising indie pop icon Sky Ferreira and Australian psych-pop band High Highs. The three gaveRead more...
