Liz's DJ set from Monday's Crocodile Happy Hour

{photo by the lovely Victoria VanBruinisse} Thanks again to everyone who stopped by the Crocodile on Monday! It was *so so awesome* seeing you and boy oh boy did the double helpings of pizza make my tummy happy. I still have a couple of those wooden tokens for rum drink specials left over; I suppose […]

The Atlas

I first heard Kristin Allen-Zito, Bellingham’s indie queen about five years ago.  A profound serendipity, I stumbled into an acoustic set at the now-defunct Bay Street Coffee House, and was immediately besotted.  I am not usually one for femme folksingers, but there was something vulnerable at work that arrested my attention.  Having cemented my allegiance […]

A Portland Excursion: Farewell to The Trucks (again), plus Head Like a Kite and Subtle

Show Date: November 7, 2008

I was dealt a double-blow last month when I learned The Trucks and Pleasureboaters, two of my favorite local(ish) bands were both breaking up. At least in The Trucks’ case, I was allowed a chance at closure, as they had three final shows scheduled – one each in Seattle, Portland, and home in Bellingham. Pleasureboaters […]

Band breakups, Fall edition: The Trucks, Pleasureboaters

It’s always at least a little disappointing when bands breakup and in the past weeks two popular Northwest bands have decided to call it quits. First, Bellingham’s The Trucks are splitting. Sound Magazine got the scoop: The Trucks have run out of gas. Seemingly out of nowhere, Bellingham’s trashed-out queens of glammy gender-tweaking dance pop […]

Bumbershoot 2007: The Trucks Interview

Pressed for time, I ended up interviewing the Trucks at their Bumbershoot merch table signing. I felt a bit awkward because there was a whole bunch of people around watching us conduct this interview… Don't forget to read the live show review from Bumbershoot too. {Imaginary correspondent elle was an interviewing machine at Bumbershoot 2007, […]

Bumbershoot 2007: The Trucks

Show Date: September 2, 2007

The Trucks truly are a sight to behold. If Peaches, Team Gina, and Princess Superstar combined forces and started a supergroup with Gravy Train!!!! you might come close to approaching the genius of these four ladies from Bellingham. By employing simple beats with clever songwriting, the Trucks have some of the catchiest pop songs in […]
