PartMan PartHorse vs. Sky Cries Mary vs. Kinski – Friday promises a great night of local music

Every time I turn around, a new option presents itself for Friday night (tomorrow!). I’ve missed PartMan PartHorse’s last few shows and solidly planned to catch their set at the Funhouse, until I realized Sky Cries Mary is playing Neumos the same night. Further conflict is provided by Kinski, who will headline a great bill […]

Bumbershoot 2008: Day 1

Show Date: August 30, 2008

Burn to Shine: Bright Seattle stars

Opening with a montage of Seattle, Burn to Shine's forthcoming Emerald City edition is quintessentially us. The film's opening montage pieced together clips of places here and there — the I-90 bridge, homeless people at a bus stop, downtown hustle and bustle — all familiar, but not cliched street corners. Resting on the house where the […]

Kinski bring sonic extremes to the Crocodile

Show Date: September 27, 2007

Wolves in the Throne Room. What imagery a name like that brings. Let's see: a throne room is a regal place of solitude where royalty sit around. Wolves, being natural predators, can create havoc and chaos wherever they feel. They also have very sharp fangs, prominently displaying them whenever they need to threaten. In terms […]
