Music Madness: Allen Stone
Don’t Miss Stone’s Five Night Evolution of an Artist Series Across Seattle When I was first introduced to Allen Stone’s music many years ago, I’ll admit after hearing his soothing sexy voice, I didn’t picture him looking quite like he does; a scraggly blonde mop of curls flowing down his shoulders, big bottle glasses and a wide toothy grin. Allen embodies everything I love about the PNW culture, and he’s never pretended to be anything other than himself, nor has his (more…) Share: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Linkedin Google+ Reddit Email

Through the Looking Glass: The Burlesque Alice in Wonderland
A sexy rendition of the mind-bending, mythical tale Jasper McCann and Lily Verlaine, the dynamic duo who assembled that exciting burlesque Nutcracker  I raved about in December are at it again, but this time they’ve outdone themselves; caterpillars and rabbits have never achieved such raunchy sex appeal. I’ve always been fascinated with Lewis Carroll’s charming tale, and playful use of language, and when I heard Alice in Wonderland was the setting for a burlesque performance, I couldn’t contain my excitement.

Musical Madness: MAMMA MIA!
Does Your Mother Know: A Candid Discussion with Sassy Mama Donna As an 80’s baby, I subconsciously became an ABBA fan long before I could comprehend an acronym, or the impact Agnetha, Benny, Björn and Anni-Frid would have on Pop music. My parents blared that Gold: Greatest Hits on repeat throughout my childhood, and it didn’t take long for me to realize, I was THE Dancing Queen. When the MAMMA MIA! musical first went into production several years (more…) Share: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Linkedin Google+ Reddit Email

Music Madness: Ben Howard
Howard Finds Himself in I Forget Where We Were Who: Ben Howard established himself as a prominent UK folk artist with the release of his first album Every Kingdom back in 2011, a beautiful reflection of positivity,  and collection of catchy love lyrics sure to appeal to audiences everywhere. Each song on the album felt as if you were sharing a personal moment with the artist, yet just when you thought he might dive deep and reveal something bigger, he ended the trance and brought you back up with his cute hums, whistles, and winks. The album was a quintessential catch 22; I loved everything about it, the transition from Old Pine, to Everything and what (more…) Share: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Linkedin Google+ Reddit Email
