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. From the media room of SeattleWaveRadio.com, Washington’s No. 1 independent Internet streaming radio

TSOD: The Science of Deduction, the sound of induction?

~ by Cindy Teixeira / Brown Bag Alley blog ~ TSOD: -, the sound of induction? For those of you unfamiliar with the classic “new wave” synthesizer sound, as it was called back in the post punk days, The Science of Deduction is a fine example of what you’ve missed so far and a preview to what is coming. BAND MEMBERS: Doug Hallet (The Dents, Dream 286, Danse Macabre, Ubu Roi, Tesla Coil), Jim Jones (Pogrom, Ex-Machina, Raspberry Playground), Curt Rowlett (The Conch Pistils, Tombstones), Cathy Sorbo (The Sympathy Cards, Zooma Bella) https://www.facebook.com/TSODband http://thescienceofdeductionband.com https://www.reverbnation.com/thescienceofdeduction My first exposure to full commercial synth music was in the movie Midnight Express.

Country Music: The Next Generation

~ by Cindy Teixeira / Brown Bag Alley blog ~ Country Music: The Next Generation Forget about pop country. As with all things in life, what goes around comes around and it is high time country music turned the corner and came around to the stuff that makes for good jukebox music: Two-stepping, storytelling, heart breaking/aching, twang-filled misery. Everything a country song needs, right? This summer I had the honor of attending the CD release party for one 17-year-old Connor Lewis of Tacoma. I met his father at the Grieve the Astronaut CD release event and he slipped me an advanced copy of his son’s new disc. I was curious
