Rising country artist Bailey Bryan headlined at the Tractor Tavern, just two weeks after playing the main stage at Watershed. The 19-year-old is originally from Sequim, Washington and now resides in Nashville. The audience was filled with many home state family and friends. With over 2M plays on Spotify, her debut PE, So Far, is getting a lot of attention. Earlier this year, Rolling Stone listed Bailey in their 10 New Country Artists You Need to Know column.
Country artist Kacey Musgraves recently opened for Willie Nelson at Marymoor Park in Redmond, east of Seattle. She and her five-member band played material from her two studio albums as well as several new songs. Kacey told the audience that up until the tour started, she’d been busy planning her wedding [with Ruston Kelly] and writing. Near the end of her set she sang “Rhinestone Cowboy” as a tribute to Glen Campbell, who died a few days beforehand. Kacey’s set ended with a well-deserved standing ovation.
Song: “We Are Your Receiver” (Karnaval Blues Remix)
Why You Want to Listen: Amsterdam, Netherlands’ electronic quartet get their song “We Are Your Receiver” remixed by Karnaval Blues! The remix appears on Dusk, a remix album including treatment from Sasha as well, and it’s just beautiful. I encourage you to get to know this band and Karnaval Blues (KB tracks, sadly and strangely, seem impossible to find. The Leeds-based producer needs to fix that).
Listen right over here.
Slayer with Lamb of God

Slayer and Lamb of God kicked the doors down and destroyed WaMu Theater last night. They both put on such a great show and I just love covering them both. Slayer is due for a very anticipated record next year and Lamb of God released The Duke in 2016.
If you want to see a super high energy, irreverent metal show, find Slayer or Lamb of God as soon now!
Lamb Of God
About a dozen times each summer, a temporary encampment of 25,000 springs up at the Gorge Amphitheatre in eastern Washington for a weekend of music. The three-day Watershed country music festival happened over the last weekend in July – at the oasis in the desert. Close to 10 artists performed each day, split between the Main and Next From Nashville stages. Besides music, there were numerous additional activities for the crowd that was dominated by 20-somethings. The photos are shown in reverse chronological order – from the headliners in the evening on each stage, to the openers in the early afternoon.
