Fresh off the release of a well-received Unlimited Love and a couple months before Return of the Dream Canteen, the always magical Red Hot Chili Peppers came to Seattle as headliners of T-Mobile Park. These guys are busy! The orange and yellow psychedelic swirls in these photos are gorgeous. Look for Red Hot Chili Peppers to receive the Global Icon Award at the MTV Video Music Awards on August 28th, setting them nicely next to Foo Fighters, who won that award last year.

ODESZA’s Harrison Mills – photo by Rachel Crick

At the end of July, ODESZA performed THREE sold-out shows at Climate Pledge Arena (that’s a huuuuuuge venue in Seattle). Congratulations to them for getting such a hot and deserved welcome in their home area. The duo of Harrison Mills (Catacombkid) and Clayton Knight (BeachesBeaches) originally come from Bellingham, Washington, and they’ve released four smashing albums – with the first self-released – and following three albums on Ninja Tunes no less. After a hiatus mostly due to the pandemic and an additional project called Bronson, they returned as ODESZA at the end of July with The Last Goodbye, where the pair again produced their own work. Beautiful! Sylvan Esso and ford. opened the night’s festivities, and then came the literal fire!
