Show Date: September 1, 2002

At the last party at I.G. Dana's house, some folks on the porch were talking music and one guy started dissing Courtney Love. "OK, so how do you know she's an evil bitch?" I asked. His response, "Ummm… because Krist Novoselic told me so!" Right. Now I'm not going to argue with that. It may […]

The Doobie Brothers

Show Date: September 2, 2002

The autumn leaves go tumbling by. Clouds march by, amassing their troops in the skies. Don't let them shoot my kite down. Looking forward to seven months overcast skies. Leaves swirl at my feet and I walk along the crowded downtown Seattle sidewalks with my head in the clouds. The ennui's setting in so I sit […]

Wilco

Show Date: September 2, 2002

Could there be anything better than seeing a band you truly love playing outdoors on the last day of Bumbershoot? If that band is Wilco, the answer is absofuckinglutely not! Usually the Monday of Bumberweekend makes me sad, but this fine day, I saw Wilco at Memorial Stadium, and went to a private reception with […]

The Drop

Show Date: August 30, 2002

I recently attended tHe drop's incendiary Bumbershoot performance at EMP's Skychurch. Unable to contact the band for comment, I decided instead to sit down and talk with a RANDOM FAN at the show. The first person I found, Michael X., seemed a perfect candidate, mainly because none of my questions came as a surprise to […]

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 […]
