[video:] I first saw We Wrote The Book On Connectors' Ben Baier live playing with H Is For Hellgate, and if you've seen him too you know there's few people that can charm and move a crowd's collective heiny like this vocalist/bassist can. Because he can play superbly while friskily shambling about a stage or […]

My dilemma: I'm going to try to do both Grudge Rock and Wehrwolve this Saturday, April 24

(Photo by human?) I am in luck that both rip-roaring shows are in very close proximity to each other, so it’s not the time-and-mind-squeeze it could have been. But this Saturday night, April 24, my favorite band-and-trivia driven contest/concert Grudge Rock is happening at the Crocodile about the same time as my new favorite Seattle […]

Tonight's recommended show: Ear Candy's Birthday Bash Deux: Bash Harder

This show would have gotten my recommendation for the night even if it wasn't celebrating the second anniversary of my friend Travis Hay's excellent blog from the PI, Ear Candy, and the launch of his new, also excellent, northwest music site Ear Candy Beat.

M. Bison with Facts About Funerals and We Wrote the Book on Connectors

Show Date: December 20, 2007

One of the things I love about Seattle is that even when major venues are closing down (a moment of silence for the Croc), there are still places I haven't been to shows at and they continue to surprise me. The Nectar Lounge has an ideal set-up: the main floor is completely open with a […]
