By Brent Stavig Are you a fan of the band Great Big Sea? If you’re not, it’s probably because you’ve never heard of them. Once audiences experience the foot-stomping, beer-swilling, sea shanty wailin’ trio from Newfoundland they’re usually swallowed-up hook, line, and sinker and become ravenous lifelong fans. Next Thursday at the Triple Door (216 […]
By John Lill It was a very special Valentine’s Day in Seattle as Hozier returned to the Emerald City just a mere four months since his last visit to play a sold-out show at The Paramount Theatre. Taking the stage right at 9:30, the 6’5” Irish singer/ songwriter walked out to an excited and […]
By John Lill The first major country concert in Tacoma of 2015 was a very good one as Miranda Lambert fresh from her Grammy win last weekend brought her Certified Platinum tour to a packed Tacoma Dome on Friday night. Lambert is always worth watching — a highly personal songwriter with a good voice whose […]
By Robin Fairbanks Photos by Hanna Stevens There was clearly a lot of love in the room at Neumos Friday night, and it was refreshing to witness the support and love given to each artist. The lovely Maiah Manser kicked off the show with contemporary stylings, which included interesting loops and beats. With so many […]
By Victoria Holt Dr. Dog had the Showbox Market popping off like a tropical hotel party in an ode to their recent release, Live at a Flamingo Hotel. After seven studio albums, the band has immortalized their raucous live show, capturing their infectious energy in a beautiful two-disc experience. The Showbox was decked out with a huge […]
By Xander Deccio Ten years ago, one of the most infamous bands in the Pacific Northwest and a staple in the Seattle Rock Scene, Sleater-Kinney, called it quits. The band, named after the road in Lacey, Washington, featured the likes of Carrie Brownstein, Corin Tucker on vocals and guitar, and Janet Weiss on drums. Though […]
By Abby Williamson Photos by Christine Mitchell The highly anticipated SASQUATCH! 2015 lineup has been announced, and includes Modest Mouse, St. Vincent, The Decemberists, Kendrick Lamar, and Robert Plant. To celebrate the big announcement, the Neptune Theater hosted the launch party, with locals The Young Evils and TacocaT, and Ty Segall playing, and comedian Chris […]
By Dan Rogers Photos by Brandon Patoc Photography A Mad Season reunion? An evening at the symphony? Perhaps, a Seahawks rally? You could say yes to all. Walking into Benoroya Hall on Friday, January 30, 2015, it looked like it could be a rally, as the lobby broke out into Sea-Hawks chants several times. But, […]
By Christine Mitchell Photos by Alex Crick Waxahatchee and The Ghost Ease played The Sunset Tavern last month, which was part of the Red Bull Sound Select concert series. Staff photographer Alex Crick was there to catch the action. Check out the slide show below:
By Christine Mitchell Photos by Mocha Charlie and Christine Mitchell Planes on Paper’s release show for their second EP, The Ruins, was good. Actually, it was pretty darn incredible, and really, no superlative could encapsulate the beauty of the venue (Columbia City Theater), and how well it meshed with the performances Friday night. Spokane has […]
By Mocha Charlie Pvris started off last night’s sold out show at the Showbox SODO. Hailing from Massachusetts, and after changing their name from Paris back in 2013 (for legal reasons), they have been increasing their fan-base on national tours for a few years. They were here last fall a few days after they released their debut […]
By Katrina Charles Last Tuesday, Wooden Wisdom pulled out all the stops at Capitol Hill’s Q Nightclub for what was probably the funkiest school night ever. The duo of Zach Cowie and Elijah Wood (who, somewhat unfortunately, does not go by DJ Frodo) are a powerhouse pair that mix their set straight from their own […]
