Another year, and another weekend at the Gorge is upon us! That's right — this weekend brings with it our favorite northwest festival season opener, Sasquatch!. Running this year from Friday through Sunday (and thus avoiding the whole, "I really should have taken Tuesday off from work!" mess), the 2014 lineup is no slouch, with […]

Here we go, Austin! Here we go! *clap!* *clap!*

Yup. There sure are a lot of exclamation points up in that headline, and with good cause: we're heading off for Austin City Limits this weekend, to catch some bands and some tan in the near-hundred-degree sun.

Pride

{

/11}

Midway through the recording of Pride, Matthew Houck, the man behind Phosphorescent, decided to migrate from Athens, Georgia to Brooklyn, New York. The change of scene proved to be advantageous; Houck instantly picked up where he left off and finished the album with renewed inspiration. This is Phosphorescent’s third full-length release, following 2005's Aw Come […]
