But really, what better way to spend it than a breezy weekend down at Seattle […]

Bumbershoot 2013 lineup announced!

Sasquatch! is always a party, and Pickathon will be a one-of-a-kind experience — but the lineup for this year's Bumbershoot seriously knocked it out of […]

Mergefest NW 2010: Superchunk, Teenage Fanclub, and Telekinesis

Show Date: October 14, 2010

Any night that has Telekinesis opening, and has Teenage Fanclub not even headlining is bound to be epic, and thus was what I’ve dubbed Mergefest NW 2010. Telekinesis brought the rock with Michael Lerner and a new incredibly tight band behind him, featuring Cody Votolato (ex Blood Brothers/current Jaguar Love) and Jason Narducy (ex Verbow). […]

listmania continues: keenan's top 20 favorite albums of the decade

{Long Winters photo by Trickshot Photography} Because I’m some kind of masochist and a total nerd, I’ve been slaving over this list, keeping it brief (harder than you’d think!) at my favorite 20 albums of the decade without duplicating a band (even harder). Side note: I’ve probably forgotten something I really, really love, so let’s […]
