Australian singer-songwriter Julia Jacklin is on the road with First Aid Kit and recently made a stop in Seattle. She played a solo set at the Paramount Theatre in support of her sophomore album, Eastwick / Cold Caller. A few more shows in the US, then it’s off to Europe for shows that have already sold out.
Artist: Jesse Jo Stark Song: “Fire Of Love” Why You Want to Watch: Great video of dancing at a theatre for something called Smoke Show. There’s also a monster man – just in time for Halloween. “Fire Of Love” was directed by Chuck Grant. Grant, born Caroline Grant, is Lana Del Ray’s sister.
Danish singer-songwriter Agnes Obel played at a rare seated show at the Showbox at the Market. Her North American tour made a stop in support her recent album, Late Night Tales. The backing trio played cello, mellotron, percussion and keys, and all three also sang. Local Olympia-based Micaiah Sawyer opened for the very receptive audience.
Edie Brickell & New Bohemians begin the west coast part of their fall tour at the Showbox on Monday, October 15th. Just last week, the Dallas band released Rocket, their first album in twelve years! Along with the New Bohemians, Brickell has had great success as a solo artist, even writing Bright Star, a musical with Steve Martin. Brickell has stayed involved with her former bandmates, recently telling Billboard, “I want to show how great this band is.” We want to see that! This show will let us all enjoy that connection and that lovely voice of Brickell’s.

Shame‘s Charlie Steen
Shame being in Seattle twice this year? Really awesome. Nearly just eight months following their first Seattle date, the British punk quintet returns to play the Crocodile on Wednesday October 10th. Shame is one of the truly exciting live bands out there at the moment, and their 2018 debut, Songs of Praise, also just happens to be one of my favorites of the year. I’m not alone; I have not seen one bad review of the album. Playing on a larger stage than earlier this year, the band can get even wilder tomorrow night.
