Photos: Rodrigo y Gabriela @ Marymoor Park

Mexican guitarists Rodrigo y Gabriela played at Marymoor Park in Redmond on Friday night before a large audience of evening picnickers.  While many guests remained seated for the show, a handful of folks were unable to resist the flamenco-infused rhythms of Rodrigo y Gabriela, and before long, they were up dancing near the stage.  Please enjoy a few photos of the show below; more can be found here.

Portraits: Lisa Dank, Love Sick, Lemolo & Ravenna Woods

Photographer James Bailey took some amazing shots of several great local musicians and I just had to show them to you. Bailey takes photos at concerts and he also captures beauties in more formal arrangements. Enjoy his portraits of Lisa Dank, Love Sick, Lemolo and Ravenna Woods.

Videos: We Are Scientists, Sébastian Tellier & Kaskade

We Are Scientists‘ video for “Nice Guys” has all the wrong lyrics in it – I enjoy that. I also enjoy watching singer/guitarist Keith Murray navigate the streets of New York on a scooter. It’s entertaining, and the squirrels are adorable. Trivia: the boy in the video is Chris Cain’s son, and reportedly the masked monster at the end is Murray’s girlfriend, Christi-Lynn of Bad Girlfriend.

The video for Sébastian Tellier‘s song “Look” is a concept I have definitely not seen before in a video. For some reason the ending of the video is poignant and it’s hard to explain why – maybe it’s just the slow destruction. I don’t know. The video is by Mryzk & Moriceau, who also did Air’s “Sing Sang Sung”.

And the last video is not really a video but it’s a superb collaboration between Kaskade and Dragonette. Listen to “Fire in Your New Shoes”.

Photos: Jesca Hoop & Blake Mills @ the Tractor

Jesca Hoop recently moved to Manchester, England from her native California. She also just released another album, Hunting My Dress, so it’s been a big couple years for her. In July she appeared at the Tractor in Seattle with Blake Mills, a Californian wunderkind guitarist and singer. We’ve got some sharp photos by Jason Tang for you to check out:
