Another Best of '07 list: Chop Suey booker Pete Greenberg's favorite albums

I’m a huge nerd when it comes to pouring over annual, best of lists (I’m still biting my nails in anticipation of the Idolator critic’s poll that should be out soon), and I’m always intrigued by what the favorites of people who work in the business of music but aren’t (necessarily) critics or reviewers. So, […]

TIG Best Northwest Releases of 2007: Editors' picks

We gathered our imaginary staff to determine our collective Northwest favorites for 2007. It was hard work. Imaginary battles were fought, alliances formed, and finally, winners emerged. You should have seen the way that imaginary Liz can arm wrestle, and how Erik Gonzalez can duke it out for his favorite bands. It was fierce and […]

Siberian @ El Corazon

Show Date: December 29, 2007

One part Northwest cold, another part summertime warmth, and all soul, Siberian’s live show emanated a strange nostalgia: a tumbling spectrum of emotions encompassing all that it means to win, lose, and sometimes, just have to walk away.

Best of 2007: Kyle Johnson’s top 10 songs

I normally listen to music while driving/riding my bike/working. During any of these activities, my mixes are super random and I’m a big fan of Shuffle mode on the iPod. Instead of listing off albums, I decided to share ten of my favorites songs from 2007, both local or otherwise. It was a great year […]

Help "Unscrew the Crocodile Employees" on Dec. 30

Let's face it, amongst the many pleasant things in this world, one thing NOT on that list would be getting a voicemail from your boss on a Sunday afternoon informing you that you no longer have a job. It sucks times ten during the holidays. Alas, such was the fate for the employees of our […]

Best of 2007: imaginary stella's picks

It’s always odd to revisit what you’ve reviewed over the course of a year. Sometimes, much can change – as after subsequent listenings, you realize that record you thought was pretty decent just blows (see The Killers’ Sam’s Town) or you come to love an album that you’d previously dismissed as mediocre (see “Into the […]
