Signing Off: The End Of Seattlest

Well, "The End" might be a bit dramatic, but "Seattlest: Going Away For A Bit" doesn't quite have the same ring to it. [ more › ]

The Migration Of Our Voices

Only a couple of entries left before things wind down for a good long while. Once that happens, you might like to know where it is you can find the voices you've become accustomed to reading on our site. [ more › ]

Countdown in Photos #31: Drew Grow and the Pastor's Wives

This is the very last post I'll be writing for Seattlest. It's bittersweet, but a good time to move on to new things. The final photo in my countdown is Drew Grow and the Pastor's Wives at Musicfest Northwest. There's a good reason I chose this band as my last photo, check out why. [ more › ]

Music: More Than a Sum of Its Notes

As music editor for Seattlest over the last couple years, I've learned a lot. Mostly about local music but also about sharing what you love with others, the power of friendship and community and most importantly about myself. This is my goodbye (and hello) to all of you, our loyal readers. Show More Summary

Extra Extra: And So It Goes...

Predictably, the newsmakers in Seattle have slowed down a bit, as if in anticipation of New Year's Eve. A little breather before the work of the new year begins in earnest. What did happen today is reminiscent of the last episode in a given season of The Wire: loose ends are being tied down, and the seeds for the next chapter are being sown. [ more › ]

Sketches of a Year: A Farewell to 2011, and to Seattlest

A year ago, when Seattlest's Amy Mikel and Allecia Vermillion pulled me back into writing about theater after a decade's absence, I was uncertain what I could possibly do to help things. I am now no longer uncertain. [ more › ]

Countdown in Photos #30: Bryan John Appleby

Bryan John Appleby is unadulterated talent, through and through. His piercing and emotionally charged voice doesn't need strength to carry it to the back of the room. He is, simply put, beautiful. His lyrics bring tears to your eyes no matter how many times you hear them. Show More Summary

Remember the Alamo: UW Falls Short in Exciting Bowl Appearance

It was one for the record books, but Washington fell just short of back-to-back bowl wins in last night's showdown with Baylor in the Alamo Bowl. [ more › ]

Closing Words from Your Resident Beer-Nerd

As we extroverts tend to do, I have always shared my love for my newest hobbies and passions by telling anyone and everyone who would listen for more than five minutes about the newest board game I discovered, my new found love for science fiction television and movies, and beer. [ more › ]

Can't Miss It: The Weekend and Forever Forward

Commandeer the Tractor with Honkies and Dogs, pick a boil with Beefcake, dance through the night and well again into the afternoon at the Garden, then let us shake hands and part the better for our time together. [ more › ]

Friday Morning Headlines

What's in store for you today? Marijuana. Income gaps. Sad, sad stories about recent murders. And hilarious one about christmas pistol pilferers. Happy Friday. [ more › ]

Extra Extra: Things Keep Happening

Just because we're stopping, doesn't mean the world is stopping along with us. Here are today's newsworthy items: Suicidal barbecue grills, more information regarding the man who killed a beloved high school teacher and mother, and a man in West Seattle wishes to keep us well-supplied with plastic grocery bags.

Seattlest: Nearing The Denouement

Perhaps you've heard the whispers, perhaps not; in any scenario, the time has come for us to confirm the rumors: As of 4:00p.m. Saturday December 31st, 2011, the Seattlest will be going on indefinite hiatus. [ more › ]

Countdown in Photos #29: Campfire OK

Campfire OK isn't just a bunch of pretty faces, they've got a unique blend of vocal, banjo, guitar, piano and percussion that brings people in and gets them dancing. Mychal Cohen may be the face of the band, but the incredible talent of each member is what makes this group great. Morgen takes us to their performance at Capitol Hill Block Party earlier this year.

Can't Miss It: Thursday

IT’S A PSYCHOBILLY FREAKOUT: Way back in 1990 Sub Pop signed a rising Dallas band called The Reverend Horton Heat. And they looked at their signing and saw that it was good. Hallelujah. The group’s first album, Smoke ‘em If You Got ‘em,...Show More Summary

Thursday Morning Headlines

A couple of items get a little bit closer to reaching a ballot in 2012 -- but one's a lot further along. Meanwhile, Occupy Bellingham is evicted, business owners prepare for the minimum wage increase and an arrest in the Christmas Eve murder of a Woodinville teacher. [ more › ]
