Let your Brit-Pop flag fly!!! {with a dance party, brit-pop karaoke, unibrows and more…}

Britpop runs in my veins.  For the anglophile music geeks amongst us, there is no greater way to electrify the room than to say words like Pulp, Supergrass, Lush, Suede, Elastica, James, Ride, Charlatans, Ash, Blur … oh yeah, and Oasis. Finally there is way for us to celebrate our love of the parklife.  Mark […]

Sasquatch 2013: Your guide to navigating the side stages {Friday, May 24th}

This Saturday night: The Walkabouts reunion, the Redwood Plan, or…

I am going crazy trying to decide what to do this Saturday night. One of my very favorite new bands, The Redwood Plan (featuring the incredibly awesome Lesli Wood and the awesomely talented Jamie Hellgate) is playing KEXP's Audioasis at the Sunset at 8pm. (Erik Blood opens the show at 6:30, too.) Their EP is […]

A memorable evening of Seattle rock with Altspeak, Erik Blood and Hotels
