Black History Month 2015

I remember Black History Month from the two major East Coast cities I’ve lived in. It was, well, pretty important. There were several events and several people at those events. I thought Seattle would be disappointing in comparison but that is just not true.

Here’s a roundup of what I’ve found is going on around […]

Maxwell in Tacoma 6/21

Maxwell will be in Tacoma on June 21.  There are just a few tickets left so get yours soon!

In an age of immediacy the idea of waiting sounds hopelessly outdated. But that said, there is something to be said about anticipation. Such is the case with Maxwell’s new album. Yes, after an extended hiatus […]

Future @ Neptune 7/3

If you’re a rap fan, or if you want to pummel Future with questions about why he’s not by Ciara’s (and his new baby’s) side at the moment — you can get your chance.  Ok fine, let’s stay out of those folk’s business.  But he will be here with Rico Love and Casino to […]

Lavell Crawford | May 29-31

I remember watching this funny dude on Comic View.  Apparently he’s had some fame from the series Breaking Bad.  (Who has time for TV with a blog to populate?)

Lavell Crawford is perhaps best known for his role as Huell in “Breaking Bad” and is quickly becoming one of the hottest stars in the biz […]

Zootunes this Summer!

Whoever said Seattle doesn’t have soul, clearly hasn’t seen the summer lineup for Zootunes.  Of all the acts, I believe these may be the soulful picks!  BECU ZooTunes presented by Carter Subaru is a major fundraiser for the zoo to support animal care, zoo maintenance and upkeep, education programs for children and adults, and […]

The tour will also include pieces from the J Dilla Smithsonian exhibit, including never seen before photos and his own personal drum machine, used […]


While scanning Ebony’s website I read an informative piece they did on 2014 Must-See Music Festivals.  That article has a lot of great events and I encourage you to get out of Seattle for a bit and soak up some other culture and life.

What I was very happy to see is that there’s an […]

Ballard Jazz Festival this weekend!

“April in Seattle can mean only a few things: a few teasingly beautiful days of clear blue sky; the hope that accompanies the Mariners opening day; and of course the annual Ballard Jazz Festival. Celebrating its 12th year, the festival has come into its own as both a destination for jazz aficionados and as […]
