Live Video: Rodrigo y Gabriela

Showing upRead more...

Out This Week 4/29

It’s a strong week for new albums, including the long-awaited solo debut from Blur frontman (and Gorillaz leader) Damon Albarn. KEXP Music Director Don Yates describes the release as “a mostly dark, brooding set of eclectic, beat-driven pop with a stripped-down, dub-influenced sound combining haunting piano, mournful strings, glitchy beat loops and occasional other instrumentationRead more...

Live Review: Rodrigo y Gabriela and C.U.B.A. @ Paramount Theatre 4/3

Echoes from one of my favorite concerts in recent memory, Rodrigo y Gabriela‘s 2007 Halloween gig at the Paramount Theatre, still populate my subconscious. Hundreds of collective minds were blown that night. Halloween costumes undulated in and out of focus. Rodrigo’s lightning-fast guitar picking surged. Gabriela’s booming guitar percussion popped. They played like warrior poets and their peerless musicanship dictated whyRead more...

Happy 11/11/11!

Today is Veterans Day -- a big thank you to all those who served in our country’s armed forces -- and while not to diminish their service and sacrifice, it’s also a very special day for math-heads and metalheads alike. November 11, 2011, is not only the last fully binary date of the century, butRead more...

Live Review: Rodrigo y Gabriela with Xavier Rudd @ Marymoor Park 8/13

It’s remarkable how a live concert experience can be influenced by additional factors other than the music. And I’m not talking about drugs or alcohol. You could see the same band play the same set list on consecutive nights, but based on changes in venue, atmosphere, crowd energy, etc., have a completely different interpretation. SeeingRead more...
