Tonight's Recomended Show: Jarvis Cocker at the Showbox

TIG has always been perched between a love of local Northwest music and one for most-things Euro-rock (with a UK and Scandanavian bias).

Tonight's Recommend Show: Woven Hand, Willard Grant Conspiracy, Palodine at the Triple Door

You never need to twist my arm to go to the Triple Door, a venue as elegant as the food (from Wild Ginger) is delicious. The venue feels like a complete throwback to the speakeasy days, when drinking was a naughty thing and a night on the town to hear music was an event, not […]
