In the throes of a killer party at the Neptune last night, we were thrilled beyond belief to find out the details on another most excellent year for the Sasquatch! music festival, taking place out at the Gorge on Memorial Day weekend {May 25-28}. Sasquatch! is by far one of our favorite fests every year, […]

Lily Allen covers The Clash with Mick Jones, Hold Steady covers Bruce…

I know we just got done with the 2008 lists, but this one's clamoring for my top compilation spot for '09 already! Not only is the track list out of the stratosphere, but a portion of the proceeds go to charity, too. Read on (bracketed emphasis mine, obvi): WAR CHILD ANNOUNCE HEROES FULL TRACK LIST […]

Bumbershoot 2008: Day 1

Show Date: August 30, 2008

Bumbershoot is a musical extravaganza, spanning the three-day Labor Day weekend with more bands, arts, and elephant ears than anyone can possibly capture. We had a posse of imaginary writers (ChrisB, Chris Estey, imaginary elle, imaginary dana, and Cory), and photographers (Chona, Kyle, Nathan, and Andrew) all over Seattle Center, trying to capture the frenzy […]

I don't want to write too much on this to take anything away from my friend Imaginary Kiku's forthcoming review of Beck's performance last night at Bumbershoot (and I know we're in disagreement already). I do, however, want to put this out there and ask the question that was running through my mind for most […]

Let the Halloween video parade begin: Sonic Youth, Smoosh, Beck, Arcade Fire unite!

Halloween is nearly upon us. Many could argue that it actually starts tonight with tomorrow being the BIG night (appropriately full with Halloween theme'd dress up shows and all). Here's a video put out a while back from The North American Halloween Prevention Initiative. It's kinda weird and it was hard to get my brain […]

Save for my Project Runway addiction, I'm not into fashion design. Usually I'm just a vintage clothing kinda gal – so the closest I usually get to buying something new is at a merch table at the Croc. I love the band t-shirt! So much so that I'm in the process of making a quilt […]

For the record, I prefer "Gwhere-oh" as opposed to "Where-oh." According to the second track on Beck's newest record, the pronunciation is actually closer to the latter. Guero, (pronounced however you'd like; most people know what record you're talking about), is most aptly described as a single-disc box set. As a prolific, dynamic songwriter who […]
