CHINOOK FEST SUMMIT – Year #2

~ by Dustin Rei / Notes From The Underground blog ~ CHINOOK FEST SUMMIT – Year #2 Chinook Fest Central 2016 is about to happen, folks, and with this motherload of an annual Pacific Northwest festival about to hit, it’s high time we talk about this last July and about the 2nd annual Chinook Fest Summit. Last year in 2015, I did a 3 day blow-by-blow of the festival, which you can read if you click HERE. This year, though, I was only able to catch Day 2 of the Summit fest, but it was “the big day,” and it was a blast, so let’s hash it out, shall we? First

JessMond: Three years in the making

~ by Cindy Teixeira / Brown Bag Alley blog ~ JessMond: Three Years in the Making So you know how it works: you take the two names of the power couple and slam them together because you know you won’t mention one without the other and your mouth wants to create a shortcut. Brangelina, anyone? We now have JessMond, Jessica Lynne and Raymond Hayden, together in love and spirit, who were formally engaged Sunday evening at Puyallup’s Roadrunner Bourbon and Burger House. Dozens of people were there to see the Raymond pop the big question. Many were part of the “family” these two lovebirds have created for themselves. But some

From a Land Far Away (E. WA) ~ “The Poetry Assassins” ~ Part 2

From a land far away comes a refreshing new sound, a band that shatters the mold of what small-town-America groups usually are. Meet The Poetry Assassins. The Poetry Assassins (part 2) Hello and welcome back to seattlewaveradio.com’s Wavelength blog. In Part 2 of our discussion with The Poetry Assassins, It’s Q&A time. If you missed Part 1, you can read it here. Here at seattlewaveradio we find it incredible that a band with the sense and sensibilities that you exhibit come from a tiny town in south eastern Washington so it’s time for a bit of interrogation. In the studio we have Larry, Tammy, Toby, Thomas and Copper – the

Getting’ the Groove On for Spring

~ by Cindy Teixeira / Brown Bag Alley blog ~ Getting’ the Groove On for Spring A few months ago I got to see a lineup that was super cool, all artists were completely new to me. It was a release party for Isaiah Dominquez’ Evergreen State cd. At 25, going solo after being in a band can be tough, but it seems to suit Isaiah well. He’s brushed up against some big names in the business, but clearly he seems to be forging ahead in a heartfelt direction. This is from his webpage: “In 2014, he seized the opportunity to work with world renown producers Geoff Ott (3 Doors

Nobody ASS’d You to Show Us Your Butt

~ by Cindy Teixeira / Brown Bag Alley blog ~ Nobody ASS’d You to Show Us Your Butt I really need to get this rant off my lovely and ample chest before I can write anything else in this blog. This is meant to be constructive and hopefully useful for the ALL artists who are guilty of a thing that just ruins a show for me: You shouldn’t have to be told people do not want to see your ass the entire time you are onstage. Whatever your role in the band, stop spending all your time looking at the drummer or whatever it is keeps you from engaging the

BrownBaggin’ for Realz and “Berning” Up for America

~ by Cindy Teixeira / Brown Bag Alley blog ~ BrownBaggin’ for Realz and “Berning” Up for America My first foray into Georgetown on the south side of Seattle was a real taste of what I envisioned for BrownBagAlley. We went to the MIXX to see a “Bands for Bernie” event, which was pretty cool because any grassroots movement that will likely change this country is grounded in events like this one. First off, a shout out to the women of the evening: Julie Mains, host and guiding voice of reason and humanity for the event; Julia Vidal, of The Salt Riot, a kickass musician with a conscious, beautiful mind;

From a Land Far Away (E. WA) ~ “The Poetry Assassins”

The Poetry Assassins (part 1) From a land far away comes a refreshing new sound, a band that shatters the mold of what small-town-America groups usually are. Meet The Poetry Assassins. They’re not country or blues or metal or your typical rock and roll. Atypical would be the description for their sound and yet something about it is comfortingly familiar. Not only do they have a fantastic and memorable band name (a rarity these days,) their music is just as striking and worthy of your time and attention because bands like this don’t come along often enough.
