Bjork's Voltaic: The Volta Tour in Paris is, as far as live concert films go, is a dazzling experience to watch. It is screening this weekend, twice, at the Northwest Film Forum on Friday and Saturday night (June 26 and 27) at 11pm. The Icelandic, anti-pop princess is given the star treatment she deserves in […]

Having grown up within throwing distance of the Gorge, I have always felt a sort of familial connection with the venue. I have walked the streets of George and Quincy in November, when the amphitheatre is silent and the campground only echoes the Dionysian decadence of the summer months. I guess you could say I’m […]
Well, if non-mainstream rock bands had their day earlier this year, we can now safely say the adult contemporary is having its day.

And although I normally don't even like to be in the same room as Saturday Night Live these days, tomorrow might be an exception as none other than Bjork will be the musical guest. Wow. SNL is so unfunny these days I can't even think of a joke to go along with that.

Bjork will be releasing her new album, Volta, on May 8th with collaborations by the likes of Timbaland and Antony. However, I post this because of this album cover art. Ah, Bjork, you've done it again!
What could be cuter than a video of a bunch of kittens acting rambunctious, set to Bjork's "It's Oh So Quiet"? Um, you tell me. (Hat tip to Milk and Cookies for the Friday afternoon funtimes)
