Can a Terrifying Genesis Video Cure a Hangover?

Posted by on Wed, Feb 19, 2014 at 5:09 PM

I am so incredibly hungover today that I don't remember what it was like when my body felt normal. Thankfully, I can always count on the super creepy "Land of Confusion" Genesis video to cheer me up. How much do you think this thing cost to make? Is there anything more terrifying than the Phil Collins puppet?

Get Ready for Penumbra 2014!

Posted by on Wed, Feb 12, 2014 at 10:51 AM


Do you remember how fun last year's Penumbra was? All those beers and all those bands, together in one building that seemed like the prom you wish you could have gone to? Well hold on loosely, because the second year of Penumbra is coming at you and it's time to get it on your calendar: March 29.

The lineup this year is rad! We have: Olympia witchy grunge pop from Broken Water, almighty alt-rockers Dude York (who have a new LP, Dehumanize, out on Help Yourself Records), the enchanting groove masters Chastity Belt, Portland garager-surfers the Shivas, ‘70s-esque organ-centric pop from the Comettes, with DJ sets by Peel Slowly.

Plus all that crazy fancy special Northwest beer! I tried lager last year that tasted like flowers, a couple ales that tasted like coffee, some of those stouts that are basically loaves of liquid bread, an alcoholic kombucha that was delightful, and all kinds of ciders until I was literally one of the last people there.

A rarely-spotted Seattle food truck gathering will also take place—imagine, a city where you can just eat at more than one food truck at a time! In the same area! It's like we're Portland or something. But with more weed and less crabbiness (JK Portland, you're fine).

Get your tickets to Penumbra 2014 RIGHT HERE, and check out what people were wearing there last year.

Rock and Booze: Suicide Squeeze Issues a Compilation and a Namesake Beer

Posted by on Tue, Feb 4, 2014 at 9:45 AM

  • Suicide Squeeze / Fort George Brewery
After releasing a series of limited-edition singles, Seattle label Suicide Squeeze has decided to combine 14 of the tracks on to one record. The lineup includes the Coathangers, La Luz, King Tuff, and Davila 666 (check out the full track listing below).

Label founder David Dickenson has also been working on a beer with Astoria's Fort George Brewery, which distributes exclusively in the Northwest, but details are yet to come. For now, they're making the silvery-snake can design available. Looks good to me, though I've always been more of a spirits fan (sadly, Mogwai's single cask whiskey, which went on sale last week, is already sold out).

I'll Have a Glasgow of Your Finest: Mogwai Announces Line of Scotch

Posted by on Thu, Jan 23, 2014 at 4:50 PM

  • The Good Spirits Co.

First up, Glasgow rockers (and Sub Pop team members) Mogwai have announced their own line of scotch (or as the Scots say: "whisky") in partnership with The Good Spirits Co. According to Pitchfork, it's a single cask nine-year-old scotch, and according to the picture, it has a really cool label. It's a Speyside, so I'd expect a relatively smooth—as in not-too-smokey—finish, but at 57.1% alcohol by volume, it'll be a bit hot on the tongue. It'll be available starting January 28th, and THIS JUST IN: I really want to taste it. I need to know if the flavor builds up, then fades away like "Hexon Bogon," or if it blows your hair back like "Glasgow Mega-Snake." It's going for £55 a bottle, which is around $91; I suppose about what you'd expect for a collector's edition. I didn't see the "homie discount" field on the website, but I'm sure one will appear on sale-day.

Otherwise around the Mogworld, the band has released even more spring tour dates (full list after the jump) to support their very cool new album, Rave Tapes, and Seattle is still not one of their stops. If they don't end up playing in our neck of the woods this year, they owe me a bottle of whisky!

In the meantime, enjoy the video for "The Lord Is Out of Control."

Country Lips, the Abigails, Lonesome Shack, and Bad Blood!

Posted by on Wed, Jan 22, 2014 at 4:32 PM

Tonight! In like 4.5 hours! The Sunset Tavern is your very best bet for an evening of boot-stompin', sweaty revelry featuring the rowdy, many-membered party cowboys Country Lips, dusty boogie blues-makers Lonesome Shack, and the experimental/rock project of Bad Blood, aka Conor Kiley (aaka our own Brendan Kiley's younger, longer-haired brother) who will be joined by a backing band made out of the Pharmacy.

These fine 206-ers are joined by the Abigails (all the way from LA and starring Warren Thomas of the Growlers)—serving enough beautifully satanic outlaw-country music to give you the spins. Definitely go (and definitely line up a designated driver, doi).

Drunk of the Week: Wait, Who Doesn't Love a Hairy Chest?

Posted by on Fri, Dec 20, 2013 at 4:02 PM

I got kinda drunk last week and started obsessing about this man's beautiful chest. IT'S MADE OF SO MUCH HAIR. Then someone in the Drunk of the Week comments said:

Wait, does this mean there ARE women out there who love a really furry chest?

Is this really a thing guys think women don't like?!? Do men feel insecure about chest carpets? Am I the only one who loves hairy dude boobs? Would I grow a beard, if I could? Who's your daddy? Let's answer some of these questions below!

Slayer's Jeff Hanneman RIP Tribute Banner?

Posted by on Tue, Nov 5, 2013 at 1:21 PM

Most might already know that I'm a diehard Slayer fan. **I LOVE THEM** Forever. And ever! No. Matter. What. Even Tom Araya's admission of a belief in G-O-D (thanks, Trent Moorman!) doesn't really surprise me all that much.

This banner at their WaMu Theater show last Friday seemed a little weird though. I mean, wasn't there a evil-cool (with upside down crosses!) portrait of Jeff Hanneman they could have dedicated to him? He died of liver failure. And maybe I've been living in this land of the PC Police too long, but putting his name inside a beer bottle label seems a little "OUCH?" Yes? No? Let's have a vote! Also, more photos from the show, after the jump...

Drunk of the Week: The Swim Cap Edition

Posted by on Fri, Oct 18, 2013 at 3:44 PM

I know it's hard to see in this crappy cell phone picture, but this seagull had one sweet swim cap on. Clam shells. As in "Keep Clam, M*therfuckers." Speaking of keeping clam, I wished I had had some Ivar's french fries to throw up in the air for him. He would have caught them, and he would have ate them. Yep!

Headline of the Day: "Man Stabbed Outside Bar Goes Back For Another Drink"

Posted by on Mon, Oct 14, 2013 at 3:06 PM

From the Seattle Police Blotter:

The man told police he was at a bar near Broadway and Pike Street around 1 am this morning when he got into an argument with another patron, and the two men headed out of the bar to sort out their differences.

After a brief brawl with the other man, the victim walked away from the fight when his side began to hurt. The victim then realized he had blood running down his back from a two-and-a-half inch wound, but decided to go back into the bar and have two more shots of liquor.

Broadway and Pike, eh? Well, he wasn't at The Comet...
