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!. Running this year from Friday through Sunday (and thus avoiding the whole, "I really should have taken Tuesday off from work!" mess), the 2014 lineup is no slouch, with […]

The weekend in photos: Sasquatch! 2012, part II

{This is part two of a three-part Sasquatch! 2012 photo recap. Be sure to check out part one here, and part three here!} Day three {Sunday} at this year's Sasquatch! Music Festival saw us a bit tired, a bit beat-up from the sun and the hills, and a bit gritty from the seeming "dust bowl" […]

Did you catch our post on Daily Candy yesterday?

True story! The fine folks over at Daily Candy featured a playlist of ours, on the heels of Imaginary Victoria's what-you-can't-miss-at-Sasquatch post we ran last week. It's a quick drive-by of some local (and farther-reaching) favorites that we're excited to see this weekend, and includes tracks from Yellow Ostrich, Pickwick, THEESatisfaction, Hey Marseilles, We Are […]

Recommended show + free tickets: We Are Augustines at the Neptune {4/9}

It seems like only yesterday that I was standing at Zilker Park in Austin, finally feeling about four percent relief from the heat post-sunset, losing my shit to the sweet, gritty madness that is a We Are Augustines set. Even though they were performing on one of the smaller stages at 2011's Austin City Limits […]

Sasquatch! is by far one of our favorite fests every year, […]

These are a few of our favorite things: best festival photos and moments of 2011 {pt. I}

2011 was {is still!} a great year, not only for releases but also for live shows, festivals, and those grit-of-the-stage-under-your-fingertips kinds of moments that we have all come to love and live by: nights like The Head and the Heart blowing the roof off of Porterhouse in West Seattle, a few sweet Lovesick Empire sets, […]

On the road: we love New York! (and CMJ!) (and KEXP!)

Lucky, lucky us! In the midst of an incredibly well-timed trip to the east coast, we found ourselves front and center for a slice of CMJ at the Ace Hotel in New York City last week. Our fine friends over at KEXP had lined up a great few days of performances, with in-studios from bands […]

Austin City Limits 2011: three days of sun, sweat, and total bliss! {pt. II}

{This is part two of our photo-coverage from the 2011 Austin City Limits festival — check out part one here!} The second half of this year's trip to Zilker Park was even better than the first, as ACL's chock-ful-o' bands and radness vibe kept on strong. Strains of Wanda Jackson and Cee Lo filtered through […]

Here we go, Austin! Here we go! *clap!* *clap!*

Yup. There sure are a lot of exclamation points up in that headline, and with good cause: we're heading off for Austin City Limits this weekend, to catch some bands and some tan in the near-hundred-degree sun. Between pre-trip laundering, hydrating, charging our camera batteries and getting all that three-ounce-or-less business handled for the flight, […]
