Live Review: Jim James with Twin Limb at Neptune Theatre 12/6/16

Touring heavy records is hard. In today’s day and age, heavy-handed works of staggering genius are hardly appreciated in the album form, let alone trying to communicate that weight in a crowded room facing a loaded bar. But in these heavy times, there are those who brave the difficulties and make it happen, and fewRead more…

Live Review: Nada Surf w/ Prism Tats at The Neptune 5/18/16

Next month we celebrate the 20th birthday of High/Low, the timeless full-length debut from New York indie rock stalwarts Nada Surf. The band celebrated the milestone in great fashion, reissuing the record on beautiful orange vinyl through Vinyl Me Please and giving it a fantastic packaging makeover. But High/Low’s 20th year was much sweeter forRead more…

Live Review: Wavves with Twin Peaks and SWMRS at Neptune Theatre 9/8/15

On October 2nd, Nathan Williams will release V, his fifth full-length effort as Wavves. Five albums deep, Williams finds himself at a bit of a crossroads. His 2013 record, Afraid of Heights, found him on a major label for the first time ever, writing bigger hooks, better sing-a-longs, and cutting the level of fuzz inRead more…

Live Review: Jungle with Beat Connection (DJ) at Neptune Theatre 5/20/15

True to style, every year, there are one or two bands that manage to navigate the Sasquatch! Music Festival contracts and squeeze in a Seattle date right before they head east. For 2015, that band was UK electronic showcase Jungle. While they absolutely wowed crowds with their Sasquatch! set on Day 1, they took theRead more…

Live Review: Mac DeMarco with Dinner at Neptune Theatre 4/23/15

Love him or hate him, you truly cannot say that Mac DeMarco isn’t consistent. The indie rock songwriter is barely three years into his public career and he is already at the point of selling out the Neptune Theatre with ease, garnering a massive fanbase both young and old, and rocking every night with aRead more…

Live Review: Zola Jesus with Deradoorian at Neptune Theatre 1/8/15

Last year, Zola Jesus returned to the scene with a new look, a new label, and new vastness that she’s never shown off before. Taiga, her first LP on Mute, puts Nika on a new plane of existence, much more natural and much stronger than she’s ever presented herself to be before. And with it,Read more…

Live Review: MØ with HOLYCHILD at Neptune Theatre 10/20/2014

Everything I’ve ever thought about MØ is wrong. Well, maybe not all of it – I think she put together an incredible debut LP this year with No Mythologies To Follow, and I think that hard work has put her in league with the leaders of the new wave of indie pop like Grimes, CharliRead more…

Live Review: Volcano Choir w/ The Cloak Ox at Neptune Theatre 1/25/14

“I brought tissues.” That’s what the girl next to me told her friends as she reached into her bag and started dishing out Kleenex. At any other show, the action might have been silly, but not tonight. Tonight, Volcano Choir, the spectacular collaboration between Bon Iver and Collections of Colonies of Bees, took the NeptuneRead more…

Live Review: Damien Jurado w/ Naomi Wachira at Neptune Theatre 1/17/14

Thinking of those who define the present-day Seattle music scene, musicians like Damien Jurado, who not only call the city home but who have influenced, promoted, and produced other local artists’ music, come to mind. Jurado’s soul-searching folk ballads have earned him a wholehearted embrace from his fans. What better way to kick off hisRead more…

Live Review: James Blake w/ FaltyDL @ Neptune 4/23/13

After playing an excellent lunchtime set live on KEXP, British dub pioneer James Blake moved down to the Neptune for a sold out gig in support of new record Overgrown. Fans were lined up more than an hour before the show and the place packed out quickly once doors were open, and all for goodRead more…
