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

“Come On”- Oddly Enough and Strangely Alright

~ by Cindy Teixeira / Brown Bag Alley blog ~ Being yourself and cool is a difficult thing to quantify, but the ‘power pop’ band “Strangely Alright” has given us that image. Their new single “Come On”, along with its cleverly produced companion video, is SA’s uncanny nexus of a  slap to our face to wake up, drop the sad, have faith, and be the person you are suppose to be. Who can disagree with that?    ~ Mark / Seattle Wave Radio “Come On”- Oddly Enough and Strangely Alright Yes, I stole that title from a blog entry by Regan Lane dated more than two years ago on one

March Sunday Sessions: An Odyssey for the Senses

~ by Cindy Teixeira / Brown Bag Alley blog ~ March Sunday Sessions: An Odyssey for the Senses My interests are diverse and I like to cast a wide net when fishing for new stuff, but some folks are narrower in their musical tastes. I hope through this column you become curious and check out some of the acts I introduce to you. And when you find something you like, just BUY IT!! Support the folks who create the soundtrack to your life. Sheesh! In March, I took my musical fishin’ pole to the Maurice the Fish Records (seewutididthere?) Sunday Sessions at Jazzbones, I had such a fun time watching

Virtual Insanity, It’s All About the Kids

~ by Cindy Teixeira / Brown Bag Alley blog ~ Virtual Insanity, It’s All About the Kids You were a kid, once. Maybe you are still, at least in your head and your heart. You like music now or you probably wouldn’t be reading this. What are your first memories of music? My first memories are mixed up with The Beatles, Tex Ritter, Hank Williams, Sr., and Pete Seeger. Those artists were on the radio and I remember hearing them through my mother’s kitchen window while I played on my swing set in the yard. I remember singing along and swinging my feet as I lost myself in the big
