Boy Harsher, the electronic duo from Georgia also known as Jae Matthews and Augustus Muller, headlined the Crocodile on April 15th. It was one of the first shows to get the Boy Harsher world tour on its way. In other Boy Harsher news: getting so much inspiration from film, it probably didn’t come as a surprise to many fans when they directed and released a film called The Runner and its accompanying soundtrack. You can check out the horror film on Shudder. Boy Harsher returns to Seattle for Cuff Pride Festival on June 24th.

We were lucky enough again to cover one of Paul McCartney’s Seattle dates! Show two of two went down last night, May 3rd, featuring tracks from his solo work, the Beatles and Wings. This time he performed at the newly-constructed Climate Pledge Arena, an indoor venue (the two other most recent shows were outdoor stadiums). Each kind of environment has its own appeal, of course, and these photos by Chona Kasinger show off McCartney with a beautiful green light show. When McCartney was recently asked about selecting setlist songs, he said about himself and the band: “If it was up to us, the setlist would be 100 songs long… and that still wouldn’t be enough!” Totally agreed over here. And that beautiful bass! Yes!
