    1. Gallery : King Krule at Showbox at the Market 11/03

      Posted on in Gallery

      When I first moved to Seattle in 2013 King Krule’s “6 Feet Beneath the Moon” was the soundtrack to my new life. It was gloomy, like the weather, and had this flare unlike anything else I’d ever listened to. There was something I always thought when I’d listen to him; imperfection. It plagues his music. It’s like life, there’s disorder but some sense of direction. It’s beautiful but unique and oddly the most comforting sound. His newest album, “The OOZ”, doesn’t carry the same messiness to it. But it is deep and in my opinion Archie Marshall’s most well-done work to date as King Krule.

      In the spirit of all that is good and spooky this Halloween people will gather to watch a true reina [queen] grace our legendary Showbox stage. The young Colombiana was originally scheduled to play The Crocodile back in September which quickly sold out and was later moved to a larger venue. No better way to spend Halloween than watching the talented and mesmerizing Kali serenade us in her blend of Spanish/ English vocals.

      Posted on in News

      Last week Kelly and I did the math: up until that night, we hadn’t so much as seen each other since the Mountain View CA date of Warped Tour in late June. Crazy, but it just made meeting up again at a show from my all-time favorite band, Yellowcard, that much more awesome.

      Walnut Creek pop punk vets The Story So Far have put together a masterful tour package this go-round, and are wrapping up a North American stint this week with Four Year Strong, Terror, and Souvenirs in tow. Having just released a new self-titled in early June through Pure Noise, this talented young quintet played their biggest Seattle headliner yet at Showbox Market last Wednesday.

    7. News : Things You Should Know: New Found Glory & Yellowcard, Twenty One Pilots & Echosmith Seattle Date Tickets On Sale Now

      Posted on in News

      TODAY, this magical day. Earlier this week New Found Glory and Yellowcard announced that after years of friendship and touring together without a proper US headlining tour, the two pop punk giants would do exactly that. This November 13th, ShowBox will host this fantastic tour with the aforementioned bands AND Tigers Jaw. VIP packages are available, featuring a limited 7″, special posters and lanyards, and a meet & greet with both headliners. Deal$. Pick up VIP packages on the official tour site, or buy a normal person ticket on the ShowBox calendar *TODAY* at 12PM.
      I lamented a few months ago that Twenty One Pilots’ Blurryface tour wasn’t making it to Seattle (featuring the unfairly talented LA family that is Echosmith), but they’ve apparently heard me out… TOP and Echosmith are going to sell out the Paramount Theater on October 22nd. I’d put money on that, especially since Blurryface took the #1 spot this week. Tickets are available now for this outrageous tour and start at $36.50 on the STG Presents website.
