The Specials

I got to see The Specials recently and it was amazing.  I’ve seen them only once before many years ago.  The band and the crowd have aged a bit, but it was still very fun.

English Beat

The English Beat keeps touring so I keep going to see them, apparently.  Always awesome!  Such great tunes and it was nice to see them mix up the playlist.  The Showbox at the Market in Seattle is a great venue where you can get up close and personal with the band.  I was there, front and center.  The place was packed and it was obvious that everyone had a good time.

Natalie Wouldn’t

I got to see Natalie Wouldn’t, a local ska band, again last night at Darrell’s Tavern in Shoreline.  So fun!  Had a great time.  If you live in the area and haven’t seen them yet, you need to.

David Gray

I was able to see David Gray last night at Marymoor Park.  Great show, great weather.  It was really a nice evening.

Portugal. the Man and Grouplove

I know it has been forever since I last posted.  There were many legitimate reasons:  Divorce, work projects, life.  Anyhow, I’m mostly back to a more normal cadence, so I had a chance to go to a concert recently (finally).  I saw Portugal. the Man and Grouplove at the Marymoor park in Redmond, WA.  Again, great summer venue and yesterday was gorgeous.  Portugal. the Man was awesome and Grouplove, who I like a little less than Portugal. the Man, was good too.  Anyhow, I had a good time.  The picture was my view of the stage from the lawn.  Not up close but could see and hear everything just fine.

Blondie

Had a good time seeing Blondie perform last night at the Marymoor in Redmond, WA (an outdoor venue).  They rocked the old hits many of us love and some new songs I hadn’t heard yet that were also really good.  Yeah she’s older now, but she didn’t show it in her performance.  The night was a bit chilly but at least it wasn’t raining.  Also, the X opened up for them, so it was a fun evening of older punk/new wave rock.  I had a nice view but my phone camera couldn’t zoom in enough to get a good picture, so none attached.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs

I was able to watch the Yeah Yeah Yeahs perform yesterday.  Very cool show!  Karen O has such amazing energy and whimsy.  And her band is amazing!  Definitely see them if you have a chance.  The show was held at a nice outdoor venue (Marymoore Park) and the weather was perfect for it.
