Hard Work, Tasty Chunks and Good Times, So Far

~ by Cindy Teixeira / Brown Bag Alley blog ~ Hard Work, Tasty Chunks and Good Times, So Far During occasional expeditions to local shows on behalf of Seattle Wave Radio, and trust me there will be more in the near future, I’ve purchased or been gifted a number of CDs. I’ll write about them in chunks of three until I get caught. These artists are your friends, your neighbors. They are accessible to you, in person and on your listening device. Your community artists ought to be recognized and supported. Buy their music, attend their shows and keep them creating. This column is devoted to some of my real

Approaching Something Special

~ by Brody Howe ~ Approaching Something Special Freedom Fair on Ruston Way in Tacoma was on fire this 4th of July- but not because of the heat radiating off the concrete or rainbow tinted explosions in the sky. Usually at local festival events such as these, the small stages are filled with relatively underwhelming local acts that may be fun to listen to, but leave you with little impression. You can only take so many covers of “Paint it Black” in one day. For reggae-rock-punk-rap group The Approach, that couldn’t be farther from the case. And yes, they are worthy of that genre bending, unquantifiable status that’s lacks a

Here Comes the Sun and How About Some History and Whisky While We’re at It?

~ by Cindy Teixeira / Brown Bag Alley blog ~ Here Comes the Sun and How About Some History and Whisky While We’re at It? For a first time event held by the Harbor History Museum on the Gig Harbor waterfront June 13, it was pretty great. Old Sol, our life giving golden sky orb and guest of honor, reminded us here in the Northwest how much we love outdoor music festivals. SolFest was the brainchild of John Ross, executive director and man with a vision, to make the museum a focal point for the community. It was Ross who hatched the plan to bring people to the site in

FOLLOW YOUR BLISS WITH BLAKE NOBLE

~ by Dustin Rei / Notes From The Underground blog ~ FOLLOW YOUR BLISS WITH BLAKE NOBLE ( ALBUM RELEASE SHOW REVIEW & INTERVIEW WITH BLAKE ) “Dustin, If you have not heard Blake Noble live, then you are in for a great musical experience.”    Seattle Wave Radio’s owner, Mark Gordon, wrote the above to me in the weeks leading up to what would easily be one of most musically brilliant shows I’ve had the pleasure to attend this whole year… and take me at my word, I attend a LOT of shows. As I spent days and days familiarizing myself with Blake Noble’s artistry, and as I became aware of the

VAN EPS ALBUM RELEASE PARTY (INTERVIEW WITH MATT STRUTYNSKI)

~ by Dustin Rei / Notes From The Underground blog ~ JAMESON IRISH WHISKEY PRESENTS: VAN EPS ALBUM RELEASE PARTY (An   SWR   Interview   with Matt Strutynski)   Do you enjoy good whiskey?  You do? Wow! So do I!  Okay, what about good, solid, live rock n’ roll?  Yeah? You don’t say! We sure do have a lot in common so far.   Well now… here’s the real question: Do you like having your face totally decimated by kick ass guitar riffs; your bones turned to dust by sweet bass licks; and your socks rocked right off you by phat ass rock beats… all while you sip yourself some tasty Jameson?

DANCING ABOUT ARCHITECTURE WITH SLEEPYPILOT AND STRANGELY ALRIGHT

~ by Dustin Rei / Notes From The Underground blog ~ DANCING ABOUT ARCHITECTURE WITH SLEEPYPILOT AND STRANGELY ALRIGHT “Writing about music is like dancing about architecture.” Frank Zappa said this, I’ve heard. Or was it Elvis Costello? Gore Vidal, maybe? Comedian, Martin Mull? People can’t seem to agree about who exactly gave us this quote (go ahead, Google it!), but the point is loud and clear: If music is the language of the divine, an expression of the soul… how can one do it justice by writing about it? Hell, I don’t know, but when my homie, Cindy Teixeira, asked me to fill in for her to blog about May 3rd’s Sunday

One, Two, More, Wow!

~ by Cindy Teixeira / Brown Bag Alley blog ~ One, Two, More, Wow! A triple treat waited for me when I attended the April Sunday Sessions night at Jazzbones. Having literally just driven across the state after a wild Mom’s weekend at Washington State University, I arrived early and settled in to wait for Zarni, The Acoustic Mayhem and Torre to give me two hours of musical mastery. Generally, these Sunday Sessions are two bands/acts and sometimes, the stage is so covered in talented bodies, I have no idea whom to watch or shoot with my tiny, but trusty camera. Once again, Mr. Von, of Sweatbox Entertainment, threaded the
