Findlay Brown opened for Shelby Lynne on Tuesday night at the Triple Door. This looks like it was a fantastic venue for him and I want to say welcome to photographer Kirk Stauffer to the site. Kirk takes seriously nuanced and strong photos – here are some of his Findlay Brown shots.

Neumos had the amazing Liars play their stage on Saturday night. They’re heading to Europe now, so if you missed them in America you’ll have to wait for next time. Photographer Kevin N. Murphy makes his debut on here with his fantastic pix of this band. Welcome Kevin!!!

Eurodance seems to have a big following in Seattle. Basshunter was at the Cirque Event Center on Friday night, and performed for a large crowd that hopped up and down to his songs through the entire set. The audience, on the young side and very enthusiastic, probably heard of him from the radio station,C89.5. Basshunter made a point of thanking the channel, one that I have listened to for a long time and I also love what they do – they have a great variety of special shows covering dance genres, and are a great resource for popular dance music. I also liked that Basshunter seemed to be genuinely enjoying himself, and that he sang in Swedish at times. He was here last year in June at a smaller venue, so I am expecting he should return soon at the next size up of venues in Seattle.

The Whigs and The Hounds Below were the opening bands for Black Rebel Motorcycle at their recent Seattle appearance. If you are a fan of the blues I can assure you will love these bands. After a bunch of headlining shows, the Whigs will open for the Hold Steady and Kings of Leon on a string of dates in July and September. The Hounds Below are a newly formed band and it’s always cool to see a familiar musician (in this case the Von Bondies’ Jason Stollsteimer) try something different.
