    1. Gallery : The Drums at Neumos- Abysmal Thoughts Tour 7/17

      Posted on in Gallery

      It’s not often that I convince myself a show is worth attending on a Monday night after an 8 hour work day and fighting Seattle rush hour traffic. For New York’s The Drums, though, I’d do that three times over. I was giddy all day trying to predict what their set list would be, what the openers would be like and of course- what the newest album would sound like live.

    3. Gallery : The Kooks, Halsey, and Priory at The Showbox at The Market

      Posted on in Gallery

      The night began with taking a trip to Portland with Priory. To the likes of the wonderful Grouplove- [minus the girl lead] Priory has a fun, soft, playful sound that makes you feel like you are in the company of great friends. It was a fantastic lighthearted start to the night! Following Priory was Halsey- an incredibly talented young girl with a big voice. A New York-based act comparable to Chvrches, she took over the stage with blue hair and an insanely engaging presence. Her cover of The Killers “When You Were Young” shed a different light on the tune, bringing a lighter sound. If anything, this tour with The Kooks is just the beginning for this bright and talented 20 year old.

      Posted on in Gallery

      I don’t dance. Not even in the “sway with the music” sense. When I made it to Seattle’s hallowed Neptune Theater for Peace, St. Lucia, and Two Door Cinema Club, I had less than no idea what I was getting into.
