Duke Evers Boil Down To Fantastic

Emery w/ Duke Evers and Wall of Ears Neumos, Seattle, WA 06.11.17 Duke Evers: another Seattle band, another slightly odd band name, but not another tiny little band to ignore until they become popular. Wall of Ears danced happily onto the stage dressed in mismatched thrift-store outfits and statement sunglasses to start the night off right with their fun psychedelic pop-rock. But just in case the unique outfits and dreamy sound weren’t weird enough for you, their performance definitely was. From the typical head-banging to holding crowd member’s heads, the set was all over the place, but surely in a...

My Goodness w/ Smokey Brights and Year of Death The Crocodile, Seattle, WA 06.09.17 In a city like Seattle, where we’re known for our grunge-rock scene, new bands with that kind of sound can easily get swept under the radar.

New Kids On The Block w/ Paula Abdul and Boyz II Men KeyArena, Seattle, WA 06.07.17 I could have left my earplugs at home except the screaming of hard-crushing New Kids On The Block Fans would have blown out my eardrums. Those pre-teen shrieks from 30 years ago? They’ve apparently only gotten louder with age.

The night kicked off with BIIM pleading their lyrical asides to...

Seether Hit Showbox SoDo Hard

Seether w/ Starset and Through Fire Showbox SoDo, Seattle, WA 06.03.17 Throngs of Seether fans flooded Seattle’s Showbox SoDo lounge early, eagerly awaiting their hard-hitting show. And despite having to battle countless baseball fans and the 21+ door, the sold out venue was full of anticipation. Omaha, Nebraska hard rock band Through Fire kicked off the night and got the crowd moving. They played some of their hit singles like “Breath,” “Damage,” and “Stronger;” along with a cover of Ellie Goulding’s “Lights,” all of which are part of their 2016 debut full-length, Breathe. Starset continued the show with their amazing light...
