Talking Hip Hop w/ Frankie Starr of Lions Ambition: Album Release -Part 1

~ by Dustin Rei / Notes From The Underground blog ~ Talking Hip Hop w/ Frankie Starr of Lions Ambition: Album Release -Part 1 Since Seattle Wave Radio has welcomed me into the fold, I’ve had the pleasure of seeing just about forty musical acts. Not bad for three months work, I’d say. I’ve jammed out to rock, electronica, folk, pop, funk, soul, blues, jazz, reggae, bluegrass, and other types of music not so simply defined. There are a few genres, though, that just haven’t come up in the scheme of my work for SWR, and one of those is hip hop. This upcoming Friday, August the 14th, that shall change when the

CHINOOK FEST AT THE SUMMIT: THE BIRTH OF A NORTHWEST FESTIVAL

~ by Dustin Rei / Notes From The Underground blog ~ CHINOOK FEST   AT   THE SUMMIT: THE     BIRTH   OF A   NORTHWEST   FESTIVAL During Washington’s dark, frozen winter months, the Summit At Snoqualmie is a veritable hotspot for the skiers and boarders who come out in droves to hit slopes and walk in wonderlands of snow. But during the summer, the Summit stands deserted, chair-lifts abandoned and stock still in the sun, while granite –not powder– covers the exposed mountain landscape. I run the risk of sounding like a trite travel-writer in my choice of words here, but given the picturesque scenery and the way

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

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?
