TIG’s Upstream Music Fest 2018 Picks!

Somehow this thing is happening again! Not to say last year’s wasn’t fun, but just a bit… financially floppy? Logistically loopy? Understandable for an ambitious inaugural event with over 200 acts, though. I’m curious to see what does and doesn’t work this time ‘round. But most importantly, the lineup is brimming with some of the […]

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.

Bumbershoot 2007: Tiny Vipers

Show Date: September 1, 2007

When I first saw the Bumbershoot 2007 schedule, one of the artists I was most excited to see was Tiny Vipers, the moniker for Seattle artist Jesy Fortino, a band that has taken Seattle by storm of late, getting signed to Sub Pop records and releasing a devastating debut record, Hands Across the Void.
