Saeta

Show Date: August 17, 2002

With the post-Hypatia Lake glows upon our cheeks, the Girls emerged from our collective blissed-out musical haze to notice the next band playing was actually hosting their CD release party that night. Who would possibly want to follow up the glory of Hypatia Lake…? As it turned out, Saeta would. Not only did they show […]

Wheel of Fortune!

8998239 Omigod. This number could be the key to realizing my childhood fantasy: appearing on a game show (see also Elimidate Review for further substaniation of this statement). Omigod. Omigod. Omigod. Allow me to clarify: they are going to pick two people at random to audition for the next show. Ooh! Me me me!! Brown […]

Argo

Show Date: August 14, 2002

Argo has been on our imaginary radar for some time now. We keep encountering Justin Benson and Matt Benham all over town, from shows to karaoke nights to more shows. Normally I would clarify which instrument each band member plays {i.e., Justin Benson (guitarist)}; however, in the case of Argo, I can't, because they all […]

Asahi

Show Date: August 14, 2002

Asahi were a gentle, lovely musical presence, with front-man Tomo Nakayama and co-vocalist Kelly McDougall providing the perfect harmonies. She's so still, and he's so animated. Everyone in this band looks great — as in, eye candy for all. Sweet! And the sound. Ooh la la! Their voices are both gorgeous, and the music is […]

Elimidate!!

If we ever needed further proof that we are witnessing the hastened decline of our oh-so-evolved civilization, I offer you: Elimidate. Move over, Dating Game, now there's something meatier… For those who consider themselves too highbrow to descend to watching dating programs on TV… good for you! For the rest of us… Fucking A, ELIMIDATE […]

igLiz finally sees Hypatia Lake

Show Date: August 17, 2002

Hypatia Lake never fail to devastate, like a sonorous celebratory assault. Yet while they annihilate the senses as they rock, they likewise offer nuances, softened accoutrements, and whispered, spacious delicacies… I missed their Capitol Hill Block Party performance (but of course I read about it on the site) and was looking forward to hearing the […]

Woke Up Falling

Show Date: August 24, 2002

I was randomly fortunate enough to make it to the last ever performance of KEXP's 'The Live Room' on Saturday, August 24, to see Portland band Woke Up Falling tear up the airwaves. It was a joyous yet dolorous occasion, as Cheryl Waters, Abe Beeson, and company said goodbye to a nine-year tradition. There was […]

Sick Bees

Show Date: August 23, 2002

I really-really-really think that Sick Bees are one of the best, under-appreciated, bands in Seattle. Yeah yeah, I know that this is saying a lot but I've been enthralled with the group ever since I saw them at the CMJ festival back in 2000. So after playing only a couple of shows in the past […]

Kinski

Show Date: August 23, 2002

Item! A veritable Who's Who of show-goers was on hand at the Crocodile last Friday to watch shoegazing, spacerocking, psychedelic train driving monsters Kinski as they plowed through yet another mind-blowing set of all those songs that we only know as "The one that goes, 'do-do-do -do-do-do -DUN-DUN-DUN-do.'" And they were certainly up to the […]
