“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

Sunday Night Companions: Musical, Strange, and HelloKitty

~ by Cindy Teixeira / Brown Bag Alley blog ~ Sunday Night Companions: Musical, Strange, and HelloKitty Second round of the Maurice the Fish Records showcase, hosted by the titanically —-yes I may have made up that word, or at least applied it properly to the talented Mr. Von, Tacoma’s hip hop master at Jazzbones in Tacoma Feb. 8 found me alone in my quest for new auditory experiences. When it comes to being alone, I am not a shrinking violet. In fact, I am sitting in an Olympia bar right now, at noon, writing this, alone and enjoying a nice, dark beer, thankyouverymuch. For the February round, the pairing

Rock/Blues Guitarist will Rock the W Seattle Thurs, Feb 26th.

~ by Robin Fairbanks ~ Seattle, the City of Music, is known for satisfying music lover’s palates 7 nights a week boasting some of the most notable and historical venues such as The Showbox Market, The Crocodile, Neumos, The Sunset, and The Tractor Tavern, but music flows out of Seattle’s pores and sometimes in the most interesting places. The W Seattle, 1112 4th Ave, is a hip hotel in the heart of Seattle, probably more recognizable by it’s beautiful building that adds so much to the Seattle landscape than its contribution to the Music Industry but that is changing as the W Seattle is making its name like sister hotels,

Standing out amongst the crowd?

~ by Raymond Hayden ~ Standing Out Amongst the Crowd? Since I can remember, the phrase standing out amongst the crowd has been a staple in my train of thought. My Mother told me from day one that if you want to get anywhere with your dreams, you need to spend time with your passion every single day, write down your goals, give as well as receive, encourage as well as be encouraged, take time for yourself and most importantly…FIND A WAY TO STAND OUT AMONGST THE CROWD in order to make your place in the world! This doesn’t mean that you are better than anyone else, just that you

WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

~ by Raymond Hayden ~ WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE? I ask myself this question just about every day and come up with the same answer…I really don’t know? What I DO know is that just about everyone in the music industry is asking themselves the same question. The old adage, “misery loves company,” could not be more apropos at this moment, as it does provide some solace to not be alone on the island. How did we get here…and where is here? Does music have value anymore or is it merely an intrinsic aspect of art? Does a synergy between art and commerce exist? Is there a right
