Nikko from Seattle band Scarves talks about their upcoming Take Warning Presents show with empire! empire! (i was a lonely estate), Zelda, break ups, growing up, local bands, and probably some other stuff.
Going through the production folder, we pulled our mentor's most recent projects that said more than their original intent. This may make the final cut for our memorial piece, "Remembering Kampy" which acts as a continuation of memories spoken during the open mic portion of the reception at Emerald Downs. Bob Rivers said, if we all were to remember Kampy we'd be here til Easter of 2016. We may yet.
The final day for indie-rock, hip-hop and everything in between, felt heavy with the weight of the overcast clouds and anticipated climax of the four day music festival but was quickly uplifted with fast lyrics and a crunchy sound.
Hotter on the Black Top: Saturday at Sasquatch
Starting earlier means even more bands. Check out what bands we're covering as we update live from the Gorge in Quincy, WA. It's the second hottest day of the music festival, expect minor sunburn while reading. Photos and more for SATURDAY!
HOT BANDS SOUND OUT OF THIS WORLD AT THE GORGE
When it comes to festivals it takes a decent amount of planning to figure out how you’re going to maximize your time. Luckily, with current staffers on The Post well-versed on long-hair-don’t-care-hippy-dippy-bands each week and we’re currently learning about efficient circuits we’ll be able to optimize your Sasquatch schedule.
Here’s our game plan with updates as we witness them.
Fending off a homeless woman after the show, Corey and Trevbot were singing along to "Say Anything (Else)" during Headliners Cartel as they kept the night at El Corazon rocking for their tenth anniversary of their Chroma Record.
Pokemon cabs in original gameboy color red and blue and a Sold Out Showbox Sodo full of screaming fans for one of the most stacked KGRG line-ups all year. Fresh off of their number 2 claim to fame on billboard with their Future Hearts album, All Time Low affectionately teased the current state of Pop-punk in the Seattle crowd on May 7th.
Technicolors ripped a groovy set. The kids went nuts with Knuckle Puck's vocalist Joe, asked people to keep a foot away from the stage after a dude pulled a body slam Dan from Real Friends bonked his head on a fan leaving him dazed on stage and for the rest of the night. And that's before we got to the headliners...
A wood pallet and bed sheets ensconced between bedsheets wouldn't seem like much of a 'dance in the woods' type feel, but From Indian Lakes first headlining tour, kicked off hard to the beat of a drum and clapping fans.
The leaked visuals on youtube matched their live performance with Anthony Green stealing the show orchestrating the crowd like some sort of sorcerer/magician rubbing a microphone and calling Seattlites "Crazy Ballerina Hippies".
Finally got my hearing back from the Gwar show last night. American Sharks was cool and Decapitated was awesome. And Gwar... holy shit! If there was any concern as to how they'd be after Oderus's passing, after seeing them play I'd say there's no need for concern. They're just as brutally fun as before.
