Music: Ellie Goulding – “O Holy Night”

Song: “O Holy Night”
Artist: Ellie Goulding
Why You Want to Listen: In 2015, British singer Ellie Goulding did a version of one of my very favorite Christmas songs, “O Holy Night.” What a sweet and lovely rendition she gave to fans, and it’s now an annual goodie. Goulding must be a Christmas enthusiast, as she also took part in Band Aid 30’s “Do They Know It’s Christmas?”.

Part 20 of Memory Lane Series
Details: Man! I’m not lying, this was the super lineup for the Tacoma Dome appearance of tour I Love the ’90s: Salt-N-Pepa, Coolio, All-4-One, Color Me Badd, Tone Loc, Rob Base and Young MC. The inaugural 2016 tour was in fact so successful, the production followed up in 2017 with I Love the ’90s: The Party Continues. And I already see 2018 dates shaping up. . . but first, check out Young MC representing the Seahawks in a Richard Sherman jersey.

Show Preview: Petit Biscuit @ the Neptune, Wed. 12/6

Show Preview: Petit Biscuit @ the Neptune, Wed. 12/6

French electronic artist Mehdi Benjelloun, known to us as Petit Biscuit, plays one of only a few North American shows this fall at the Neptune tonight. Coincidentally, or probably not, Benjelloun released his debut LP, Presence, on his eighteenth birthday this year. While he worked on graduating from high school, he made the entire album himself. As in he did all the writing. All the mixing. All the producing. Amazing. Now that he’s out of school, I look forward to Benjelloun being totally unleashed onto the world. His press release tells me he plays numerous instruments, and I hear that in his fantasy world tunes. He’s got some great collaborators on Presence as well: Bipolar Sunshine and Møme are just a couple. A cool connection for tonight’s show – and the tour – is the choice of Portland’s Electric Mantis, for opener. His remix of Petit Biscuit’s “Waterfall” will appear on that song’s remix EP in December.

Memory Lane Series, part 19, brings us to another fantastic billing of Slipknot and Marilyn Manson. While Slipknot headlined the tour, Marilyn Manson has some bragging rights of 2016 & 17 for having a part in the TV series, Salem. His character was Thomas Dinley, a barber who’s also a surgeon. Although the beginning of his 2017 Heaven Upside Down Tour had an unforeseen scary beginning with part of the stage falling on him in New York, he’s just starting a European tour. Manson: stay well for all those who love you!! And if you’re also here for Slipknot (you probably are). . . following 2 2016 tours, the band’s main page warns the following: “Be Prepared for Hell, We’ll Be Back Soon.” Until then, you can listen to the live Slipknot album, Day of the Gusano: Live in Mexico.
