The Future Is Coming: Get Yourself Ready for Day for Night

Oh, man. I got a bit wrapped up in the countdown to Yes, Indeed! 2016 last week, so I let this one slip a bit, and that means that unless you’ve been sailing a raft across the ocean for seven or eight days now — or, alternately, hate music and/or joy, in which case I don’t have a clue how you’re reading this — you know that the organizers of Day for Night, FPSF‘s quasi-sister festival in the winter months, released the official lineup…

FPSF 2014 Rundown, Pt. 1: The Orwells + Lizzo + Washed Out + White Sea + Ishi + Poolside + Eagle Claw + More

Yes, friends, it’s time. Well, almost time. This year’s Free Press Summer Festival is approaching fast, a mere handful of days away, and yeah, passes are running out — don’t be stuck like last year, when the whole damn thing sold out, right?

Washed Out, Within and Without

There is nothing new under the sun. The circular, self-consuming nature of musical inspiration has renewed the heavy synths, minimalistic vocals, and ornately layered sound of the early ’80s. Despite a myriad of names (neo-wave, chillwave, nu-gaze, etc.)…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: KTRU Outdoor Show! + HHOC No More + The Suspects + My Education + Glasnost + More

Saturday, April 9th, and I’m trying to get this little rundown up on the site early, because at least one of the biggest things going on today starts early, as in, um, right about now… First, though, a bit of bad news — I’d thought {Born Liars} were supposed to be headlining a show…

KTRU Outdoor Show Lineup Announced

In case you thought the Free Press Summerfest was the only hotly-anticipated local festival-type deal still to come this spring/summer — yep, we’re fast approaching the annual, awesomely fun (and free, which is always cool) KTRU Outdoor Show
