Preview: Kris Orlowski Album Release at Showbox / Campfire OK and St. Paul de Vence

The stage is set for the much anticipated album from Kris Orlowski. ‘Believer’ has been a labor of love, blood, sweat, and tears. Kris Orlowski is known for taking his time and putting out quality product. I admire that. You automatically know that whatever he puts out will be worth the wait, worth the price, and worth sharing. Kris has this velvety crooning style that just seems so effortless and his Cd’s are one of my constant road companions. ‘Believer’ is more honest, with his storytelling unencumbered by a full orchestra, he lets each story breathe so it’s less about[...]

Sam Roberts Band and Western Haunts

The W Seattle, a hidden Gem in the City of Music.

~by Robin Fairbanks ~  Seattle, the City of Music, is known for satisfying music lover’s palates 7 nights a week boasting some of the most notable and historical venues such as The Showbox Market, The Crocodile, and The Comet but music flows out of Seattle’s pores and sometimes in the most interesting places. The W Seattle, 1112 4th Ave, is a hip hotel in the heart of Seattle, probably more recognizable by it’s beautiful building that adds so much to the Seattle landscape than its contribution to the Music Industry but that is changing as the W Seattle is making[...]

Clear The Chaos and Eclectic Approach at Louie G’s

~by Sabrina Hamilton~  Greetings again my friends and music lovers. I have two very exciting bands to share with you today. Last night I took myself to Louie G’s Pizza in Fife, Washington and had a blast. First of all, if you haven’t experienced a show at Louie G’s, you might want to put it on the to-do list. A very family-friendly and relaxed environment, delicious smelling pizza (I regrettably did not have a slice), and a great stage with excellent lighting for the bands to perform upon. What more could you ask for, really? As Louie G says, “Welcome[...]

Hookin’ Up with Strangers

~ by Cindy Teixeria ~  The Experience Music Project in Seattle is an amazing place. If you’ve never been, go. Inside there is a map, or at least they used to have one, where you can find a connection to Nirvana. It’s pretty interesting and although I thought it through, I couldn’t find an obvious connection between my band and anyone in Nirvana. If I were to make a similar map, it might look a lot like that one, although my connections are more diverse than just bands. So lately I’ve been thinking about all the people I know in[...]

From Western to West Coast: Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers Review

~review by Sabrina Hamilton~ From Western to West Coast: Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers Review Greetings my friends and music lovers! Today I am summoning my Kansas roots and sharing with y’all my experience at the Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers show at Neumos. First off, I must admit, I never would have guessed that Seattle had such a loyal following of country/vintage western/Americana fans… but I was pleasantly surprised Saturday night, with the appearance of boots, denim, and cowboy hats aplenty – on AND off the stage! Opening for Nicki Bluhm was a lovely ensemble, lead by singer-songwriter Carly[...]


The Great B.B. King plus Ayron Jones and The Way at the Moore Theatre

~review by David Kosin~ The first time I had the majestic experience of witnessing B.B. King, one of blues most prolific and grand living legends was at the Snoqualmie Casino in 2013. As that show came to a close B.B. brought his grandson out on the stage along with his granddaughter. The eclectic spectacle felt complete after an amazing night reliving the best of B.B.King’s memorable classics. This past Monday at the Moore Theatre, B.B. King and his outstandingly talented band headlined, teaming with Ayron Jones and The Way for a real show for the ages! Ayron Jones and The[...]

Patience, Rhythm & Symmetry: The Tigger Clarkson Band

~ by Sabrina Hamilton ~ To my friends and music lovers- hello! It is with great honor today that I introduce you to a band out of North Carolina called the Tigger Clarkson Band. This rock/soul group is cleverly named after its founding father, Tigger Clarkson- a fine gentleman who has not only served his country, but has found passion in sharing his many musical talents as a songwriter, storyteller, guitarist, and singer with the world. And for that, we are thankful! Other members include Harley Blasingame (piano, keyboards, organs, synths, backing vocals), Daniel Pesavento (electric and upright bass, backing[...]


?!? Funny Out-takes !?! from The Up-coming AOF Farewell Interview

~ interview by Tim Peterson ~ You just gotta listen to this!! We put together a compilation of parts of the interview with Tee and Matty from  Afraid of Figs that we couldn’t leave in the interview (don’t ask why, if you know Tee you know why). BUT, they were too darn funny to delete and send to the trash… and so we decided to share them as a sneak preview of our hilarious Farewell interview. Seattle Wave Radio has done many great interviews with Tee, but this one is truly “over the top”.  AOF will be having their final performance[...]

Youth Not Wasted and Generous Ears

~ by Cindy Teixeira | I saw some new bands make their debut performances at the Triad Theater in Yelm in December and January. Since I live in a fairly rural place and the edge of nowhere is 10 miles away, getting to see live music requires a serious time and travel commitment. And money. Luckily, the Triad Theater is only about 10 country miles away and I’m happy to pay a cover when I know musicians are getting paid. Not always the case and a subject for some other time. The Triad Theater was founded several years ago in[...]

A Royal Night: Show Review for Royal Teeth, with Hibou and CHAPPO

~ by Sabrina Hamilton | Greetings again music lovers! I have an exciting experience to share with you all. Last night, one of my favorite newest bands, (I believe I have mentioned them before) Royal Teeth, of Louisiana, graced the Neumos with their high energy-passion filled performance. Opening for them was a local pop/indie punk band called Hibou, and a Brooklyn-based psych rock band called CHAPPO. I was not familiar with either of the opening bands prior to the show, but they were both very enjoyable sets- both bands played very well in sync, and the lead singers were very[...]
