Live Review: Savages w/ No Bra @ Neumos 4/16/13

London post-punk band Savages made an explosive entrance onto the American scene last year at CMJ (and then this year at SXSW) and have quickly become one of the most anticipated new acts of year. And after witnessing them live for the first time on Seattle soil, all this writer can say is this: notRead more...

Live Review: Jamie Lidell w/ Empress Of & Ludwig Persik @ Neumos 4/1/13

As Jamie Lidell started into his Neumos set Monday night, he recalled the Multiply tour, where at his Neumos stop back in 2006, he wore a leopard print suit that was blistering hot on stage. Here, he was dressed more akin to an R&B Dr. Who, with a dark full body coat over a simpleRead more...

Live Review: Chelsea Light Moving w/ Grass Widow @ Neumos 3/23/13

If current trends continue, Thurston Moore will evoke the true spirit of rock and roll musicianship and artistry until the day of his death. 35 years into his career, he and his band of extravagantly talented musicians in Chelsea Light Moving are making hard and heavy rock with just as edge and demand as hisRead more...

Live Review: The Raveonettes with Tamaryn @ Neumos 5/13

On Friday, May 13, I went with my friend Gina Eggleston (who contributed to writing this review) to see the Raveonettes at Neumos, with Tamaryn opening. Last year at Bumbershoot 2010, I saw the latter half of the Raveonettes’ set and really enjoyed it, so I’d been looking forward to seeing a full set byRead more...

Live Review: Mayer Hawthorne, Gordon Voidwell @ Neumos 11/7

I’ll tell you this much about Mayer Hawthorne and his 2010-update-of-1960s-Motown-soul shtick: he’s certainly done his homework. Not just content with delivering stone cold classic musical gems that Berry Gordy would be falling over himself to sign, tonight it’s clear that Mayer has a Mad Men-like attention to historical detail in recreating the golden eraRead more...

Live Video: Onstage Banter from We Are Scientists @ Neumos 7/28

Part of the We Are Scientists live concert experience (as if their upbeat and joyfully caffeinated songs weren’t enough) is the hilariously witty onstage repartee between lead singer/guitarist Keith Murray and bassist Chris Cain. So good in fact that there have been widespread calls for them to lend their conversational talents to everything from talkRead more...

photos and review by Kyle Johnson The Avett Brothers took the Neumos stage Saturday night, playing their second consecutive sold out show.
