Decibel Festival 2009: Shilo’s Showcase Suggestions

Posted in Events, Festivals with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 23, 2009 by worldromper

Due to popular demand I am writing up my showcase suggestions for the 2009 Decibel Festival which begins TOMORROW!

I have been pimping for this festival for a while; I believe strongly in the smart curation of the party. These lineups are not just thrown together, but rather placed with precision into intelligent mixes of eclectic talent. In case you haven’t figured it out by now, I write for Decibel, and am honored to be a part of Seattle’s EDM festival.

I have bolded my top pick for each day, and added links in orange to the showcase descriptions that I wrote up.

Happy Decibel everybody!

Salutations to the Soul at the Church of BASS

Posted in Events, Music News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 25, 2009 by worldromper

The Transcendent Church of Bass is one of my favorite venues in Seattle, from the giant Andrew Jones artwork over the stage to the double toilet in the ladies’ room upstairs to the red cushion tent to the juice bar to the tiny little smoking patio. The energy here is always positive, the vibe is on and I have spent many happy nights spinning on the dance floor.

This Saturday night the Church of Bass is having a fundraiser called Salutations to the Soul to raise money for a new floor for their donation-based community yoga and meditation program.

Fifteen local electronic music crews are coming out to rock out two stages, one uptempo and one downtempo- check out this lineup:

  • Knowa Knowone
  • Lotus Drops
  • Andrew Luck vs. Dosadi
  • Ramiro
  • Kristina Childs
  • Rhines
  • Rob Noble
  • Jisaan
  • Jon Glist
  • Osiris Indriya
  • Nordic Soul
  • Waater Maark
  • Sweet Beets
  • Dope Labs
  • Crispy
  • Menami
  • Skoi Sirius
  • Jmeshelle

The benefit starts at 8PM with music and a silent art auction; suggested cover is $20 so come out to party with friends and support your community, and see the difference you can make!
