Treefort Music Festival 2013: Cold Weather and Hot Music

Boise isn’t one of those places where you hop out of bed and say “I think we should go to Boise this weekend!”  Actually, I don’t think it would have ever been a destination on my list, but then low and behold Treefort Music Festival was born.

Live Video: DIIV at CMJ

It was the longest wait of the KEXP broadcast at CMJ. As we were midway through hosting a dozen bands at Union Square Ballroom during the 2012 CMJ Music Marathon, on Thursday afternoon a packed house stood eagerly waiting for DIIV to come on. Missing drumsticks were the culprit, but once new ones were acquired,Read more…

(This review originally appeared in the L.A.M.C. 2011 guidebook.) I love Mexico City.

Live Review: Arctic Monkeys with The Vaccines @ Showbox SoDo 8/10

I can’t tell you how big the Arctic Monkeys were in England in 2005. They were everyone’s new favorite band. They grabbed the attention of the country almost overnight through this thing called MySpace and were legitimately hyped to be the “next big thing.” And it really felt like they were. They were young, too.Read more…

Live Review: Jubilee, Artis the Spoonman @ The Triple Door 1/31

He starts to chat with the audienceRead more…

Live Review: Bonobo, Tokimonsta @ Showbox at the Market 11/30

You’d never guess how much fun it is to constantly repeat the “nobo” in Bonobo while you mentally beatbox along to it. Such was how I spent the majority of my Tuesday prior to Ninja Tune songsmith and production wizard Simon Green’s Seattle performance at Showbox at the Market that night. Orchestral swells fill theRead more…
