Decibel Festival 2010: Sunday

One of my favorite acts from last year’s festival was DJ Mary Anne Hobbs, and I was excited to see that she would be back this year. So, bucking the late trend of the past couple days, I made it down to Seattle Center just in time for the start of Hobbs’ set at dBRead more...

Decibel Festival 2010: Saturday

I began Saturday by heading to Seattle Center for dB in the Park. Unfortunately I missed most of Nosaj Thing‘s set; what I heard was pretty killer and I wish I’d caught the whole thing as I’d intended. However, I was immediately intrigued to see Bluetech Presents Satori Social setting up with traditional instruments: saxRead more...

Decibel Festival 2010: Friday

Once again on Friday I skipped the major showcase at Neumos, focusing just on the Planet Mu Label Showcase at the Baltic Room and the Trust Showcase at Sole Repair, followed by the first dB Afterhours, “Mi Casa Es Su Casa”, at Motor. I got off to a late start and wholly missed local DJRead more...

Decibel Festival 2010: Thursday

Knowing that Ryan would be covering the scene at Neumos on Thursday and Friday (as he did for Wednesday), I chose to skip those showcases entirely in order to spend more time seeing the other artists. On Thursday I bounced between the Room40 Label 10-Year Anniversary Showcase at Pravda Studios, the Simply Shameless Showcase atRead more...

Decibel Festival 2010: Wednesday

Last year, by the time Decibel Festival ended, I knew I wanted to attend this year’s event. I’ve been looking forward to it all summer, and it still exceeded my expectations: but with a full five nights of fantastic music and dancing, how could it not? This year’s event was also a challenge for me:Read more...

photos by Dave Lichterman Friday night at Neumos was the RBMA (Red Bull Music Academy) on the Floor Showcase, and if the Wednesday and Thursday night crowds were any indication, it was sure to be an absolutely chaotic night on Capitol Hill now that the weekend was upon us.

Decibel Festival 2010: FlyLo and Friends, Neumos 9/23

photos by Dave Lichterman Well into Flying Lotus’ headlining set Thursday night at Neumos, after the magnitude of the performance had already been well-established and everyone’s mind was sufficiently blown, a guy who had been standing in front of me for most of the show, giddily dancing and carrying on like most everyone else inRead more...

Decibel Festival 2010: Ghostly International Showcase, Neumos 9/22

Wednesday night was not only my first Decibel Festival experience, but the first time I’d seen live electronic music at all. I learned many things, two of the most important being that a) Decibel Festival is awesome and b) Don’t wear a heavy sweatshirt to Decibel Festival if you can help it. We spent theRead more...
