Q13 Fox News: Bumbershoot 2011 Highlights (WIN TICKETS)

Q13 Fox News was kind enough to invite me back to share my Bumbershoot 2011 picks. I tried to cram as much into this segment as I could. In case I wasn't successful in cramming it all in, here's what I was planning on saying. Please keep your eyes on SSG Music throughout Bumbershoot weekend---we'll have lots of reviews and photos to catch you up [...]

Video: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis “Otherside” feat. Fences

Wow. Wow-wow-wow-wow-wow-wow-wow-wow. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis released an official video for the version of "Otherside" featuring Christopher Mansfield from Fences remixed by Ryan Lewis. It's a gorgeous, well thought out work of art. The subject matter of this song is very heavy: drug addiction and its dismal fruitage. Macklemore takes the [...]

Daniel Johnston Carries the Crowd to the Other Side

Daniel Johnston Carries the Crowd to the Other Side

Daniel Johnston at Wonderland Ballroom   Photos by Nick Hilden and Michelle Caldwell It seemed like no one had spoken in a while. The stage was vacant and there was still probably time to grab one more drink, but nobody moved. Nobody laughed or looked around leeringly for potential late-night tail. Nobody talked politics or stocked up on [...]

Jack White and Insane Clown Posse: Are You Kidding Me?

Jack White and Insane Clown Posse: Are You Kidding Me?

Yes. You read right. Jack White and Insane Clown Posse collaborated on a song entitled "Leck mich im Arsch" which literally translates to "Lick My Arse." What is more out of left field is that this is a modern rendition of a classical piece by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. This all seems like a joke. It's the [...]

Video: [A] Head and [a] Heart at Conor Byrne

As many know, The Head and the Heart came together at Ballard's own Conor Byrne. Even though they're playing a show with Death Cab for Cutie at Key Arena and touring with My Morning Jacket, members of the band still drop by the ol' Byrne for an open mic spot from time to time. Last Sunday was one of those times. As word got out that Jonathan [...]
