Combined with her casual, personal stage presence and a disarming hint of twang in her speech, the overall effect is one of unguarded and unselfconscious openness. But when you talk to Thao one-on-one, you quickly realize that every aspect of her music is […]

Sasquatch 2014, Day 3

Show Date: May 25, 2014

I have to admit, I kind of like the new Sasquatch schedule of Friday-Sunday instead of the old late Friday-Monday. It’s a little less tiring, and you still get the free travel day on Monday so you can stay out late at the party stages guilt free. With that said, onto the final day of […]

A very imaginary 2014 Sasquatch! schedule

Another year, and another weekend at the Gorge is upon us! That's right — this weekend brings with it our favorite northwest festival season opener, Sasquatch!.

Heavy rotation: fall edition, part I

Autumn is upon us, and once again, we've found ourselves happily submerged in a sea of grey mornings at the local cafe with headphones on, poring through new releases and marking our calendars for upcoming shows. And in case you're in one of those spots where you had to put New Release Tuesday on the […]

Beauty Parlor: hey, all you pretty things! {new record review column}

I’m going to start this new “album round up” for Three Imaginary Girls with the above recent You Tube video for Sean Rowe‘s “Jonathan”: (1.) Because I think it’s the best song off of his recent Magic album (recently given full treatment here) and though it’s been out a while the video is new. More-so, […]

Imaginary Victoria's best of 2010, part two: shows (and other indoor sports)

It’s safe to say here at Three Imaginary Girls that we go to a lot of shows. Sometimes, two (or three) in one night, if there’s more than one must-see happening going on about town. And so it’s no surprise that in 2010 alone, just on my own, I managed to go to shoot at […]
