Tech N9ne Live @Showbox Sodo 4/19/19

Showbox Sodo is a great venue because even though it’s just a big square warehouse the sound quality is usually good, location easy to get to in Sodo district of Seattle and lots of top artists perform here. Tech9 had some openers before this show that didn’t peak my interest at all which rap shows […]

Eric B & Rakim Live@Showbox Market 4/16/19

Let the Rhythm hit em and don’t ever sweat the technique! Rakim is in my opinion, by far the greatest Hip Hop MC to ever grace the stage. His lyrics are so precise you would think he had a PHD in wreck’n microphones. I saw them at this same venue some years prior and I […]

Nite Wave Live @Parlor 12/1/18

I should have reviewed this 1980’s cover band a long time ago as I have seen them several times all at good venues. This one was at Parlor in Bellevue, WA. These guys cover all the best artists, one minute you are hearing Prince/Purple Rain with dance moves, then they jump right into Billy Idol […]

Old School Night Live@Tacoma Dome 12/16/16

I’m not a fan of large venues or even the Tacoma Dome for shows. However this lineup couldn’t be missed which included the following: Busta Rhymes, DMX, E-40, Method Man + Redman, Too $hort, Kokane, Pharcyde, Da Brat, Money B, Young Hump of Digital Underground. So I will keep the review short and sweet. Most […]

Nahko The Bear Live@Marymoor 8/25/18

I had stumbled across this artist looking at something else on youtube and then patiently waited for his show in Redmond, WA. Nahko the bear is a mixed race Native American, Puerto Rican and Filipino which is notable because I like seeing fellow Native Americans doing music. He has a strong voice with some rock […]

Al Green Live @House of Blues 8/20/05

I was 21yrs old and this was my very first trip to Las Vegas. I went down there with a Girlfriend and stayed at Mandalay Bay Hotel. The house of Blues in Vegas was and still is a popular place for live music. At the time cell phones weren’t what they are now to take […]

FKJ Live @Showbox Market 4/7/19

At this semi historical location in Downtown Seattle which is a great venue for live music. If you get to shows early you can get seating along the upper tier walls. FKJ which stands for French Kiwi Juice is a one man band. He is a blend of Jazz, French house and a hint of […]

Selah Sue Live @Crocodile 8/21/13

The original Crocodile is known for giving many of Seattle’s 90’s grunge bands their big break and the new location has been around for some years is no different. That being said, you need to hear this woman. I was walking by Crocodile years ago and heard her voice from outside. I paid my $20 […]

Shawn Smith Live @Neptune 5/5/18

RIP to this talented singer Shawn Smith. This was Live at the Neptune theater located in North Seattle known for it’s historical attributes. This was a Mother Love Bone reunion show with surviving members as well as other artists like Om Johari and several others. Seen in the picture is Shawn doing a MLB cover […]

Ghostland Observatory 5/14/2011

Showbox Sodo held this pile of awesome known as GLO which is a mix of electronic dance music sprinkled with some rock. The lead singer is this cool Native American dude with braids who has some good dance moves. They are a two man show with one singer and the other guy on the synthesizer […]
