‘No Diggity’ Locals Roundup

So Blackstreet is headed to Seattle this week. Yea, that Blackstreet. Over the last couple years, covering their song "No Diggity" has become a thing in this town (perhaps other towns too, but I'm only privy to the trend in this one). The first time I heard it uttered by a local was a set by Hot … [Read more...]

Prombershoot Lineup with Allen Stone

The last two nights at The Crocodile have been full of funk and surprises. Katrina and I headed out to Prombershoot (the prom-themed Bumbershoot announcement lineup party) Thursday with little to no idea what to expect. The thought of Prom to a 30-something like myself brings about annoyance, … [Read more...]

CHBP or How I Learned to Navigate Drunk Idiots

Another Capitol Hill Block Party has come and gone, and as usual I was unable to see all the acts on my punch list. This was due to many factors: running into people I know in between venues, my inability to navigate the labyrinth of fences for the “booze garden” and my odd desire to stay after each … [Read more...]

Local Music Goes Commercial

I've noticed more and more lately how many brands have adopted the indie music craze. You know... a commercial comes on and you look up because the song is catchy and fun. Typically it's a band you've never heard of but within six months they're on tour and playing as an opener at Key Arena. There … [Read more...]

This ‘r That: Hot Bodies in Motion

They had an exclusively new song in a major motion picture, they've headlined venues throughout the Seattle area and gained quite the fan base to boot. We can't wait to see what happens this year as they set out on tour and who knows … [Read more...]
