TIG posters

Only a few days left to support TIG’s indiegogo campaign – we’d love your help!

Almost a month ago, on June 10, 2015, Three Imaginary Girls celebrated our 13th birthday! On that same day, we launched an indiegogo campaign to help usher in the next era of TIG: to raise enough funds to help with a big tech project and to keep the imaginary ship afloat. With the help of […]

Sasquatch 2015 – Monday: Alvvays, Courtney Barnett, Kendrick Lamar, Run The Jewels, Tame Impala, THEE Satisfaction

Show Date: May 25, 2015

Getting things started right on Monday afternoon were Seattle hip-hop R&B duo THEE Satisfaction. With local producer and beat maker O.C. Notes as their DJ, MC”s Stas and Cat vibed their way through a set filled with cool jams and some heavy beats. The bass in this set hit HARD. The duo even worked out […]

Sasquatch 2015 Picks: Courtney Barnett, Kendrick Lamar, Run The Jewels, S, Tame Impala, THEESatisfaction {Monday, May 25}

{Top photo: THEESatisfaction – Photo credit: Brady Harvey} Of all the stacked daily lineups at this year’s Sasquatch, Monday is probably my favorite. Just looking at this schedule makes me exhausted! Aside from being maybe the best day for music of the whole weekend, it’s also the best day for hip-hop, jam packed with local […]

SIFF Review: The Otherside

This was an interesting time for director Daniel Torok to do a documentary on underground hip-hop in Seattle. In a strange way, it either seems a little late, or a little too early. (Maybe that means it's right on time — the way a new record doesn't quite make sense, recalling memories of other music […]

Love's Not Impossible: My Top Ten Songs of 2012

We had to have some good tunes to get us through a year of watching a psychopathic plutocrat trying to pitch us back into the black and white world of fifties-era paranoia and imperialism. That victory against vileness confirmed, going back over the songs that made us swoon for the past few months is very […]

Bumbershoot 2012: Still fighting it out in my head, but I saw lots of neat stuff!

Whoa. Three days of Bumbershoot and one day afterwards got lost there. So here I am, dazed but plowing ahead like Pee Wee on his bike during the Big Adventure, my mind swimming with reflections of all the pop culture madness I grokked and gloamed in for Labor Day weekend. Here's the lights, high and […]

Bumbershoot 2012: Fighting it out in my head! What do I choose to see?!

Bumbershoot is a large, chilled, blue raspberry drink of piping-hot entertainment, if that makes any sense. This year seems particularly well thought out for taste and diversity over trying to be all things to all people. A lot of creative (even avant) bands with mindful fanbases, a ton of the escalatingly-popular comedy sets, and batches […]

Some of our must-sees for Bumbershoot 2012 {Sept. 1-3}

There's plenty to dig into at this year's Bumbershoot Music Festival outside of the big-draw acts (Gotye, anyone?) that make the daily ticket price well worth every hard-earned dollar you're going to spend. There's an impressive comedy lineup, KEXP's always-awesome "secret" Music Lounge, endless vendors, and the sunny goodness of the Seattle Center grounds — […]

Recommended festival: Pickathon 2012 {August 3-5}

We know, we know — Pickathon? you say, with an air of disbelief. Isn't that a bunch of beardy hippies with banjos out on a farm someplace in rural Oregon? Do they even have wi-fi? Fret not, dear imaginary friends: we are here to share the good news, which is the plain and simple fact […]
