Friday, September 2 SCREAM and guests Early 80’s DC punk heroes return to Seattle. Scream are considered one of the benchmark bands in the history of the Washington, D.C. hardcore music movement. Along with bands such as Minor Threat and Government Issue, Scream ultimately merged the attributes of the movement, which were blinding speed, heavy political and social connotations in the lyrics, unpretentiousness of attitude, and shunning of commercialism. Their music is faithful to the roots of rock, but spun itself into other genres by employing sounds that predate the raunchiness of grunge, while saluting reggae and speed metal. A notable alumni of the band is Nirvana drummer and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl! Read the rest of this entry »

Hot Tickets: Seattle

Every Thursday at noon, Seattle time, Brown Paper Tickets will post upcoming events happening in Seattle. Here are hot tickets coming up next week. Check back for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

Saturday, June 4 The Tripwires, The Purrs and Llama It is hardly surprising that the Tripwires have leapt to the very forefront of Seattle’s burgeoning power pop ‘n’ roll scene, for this is indeed a quartet of considerable pedigree and startling showmanship. The group’s music translates brilliantly to the stage, and their rapport with an audience is unparalleled. The Purrs have a rich 10-year musical history, marked by appearances at Bumbershoot and MidPoint music festivals, weekend coast-to-coast jaunts to play CMJ, national tours, broken-down vans, a song featured on the HBO series “Californication,” heavy rotation on influential radio stations such as KEXP, WOXY, and SIRIUS, and hundreds of gigs with such talents as Okkervil River, A Place To Bury Strangers, The Wrens, Jesse Sykes and Film School.

Bob Noxious’ Hair Reports from Derby-Land!

Josh Gates opens his show, “Destination Truth” by saying: “In my travels, I’ve experienced some unexplainable things, and I’ve done some things I can’t quite explain.” So, I’m going to us that as the perfect opening for this blog post and an overall description of my derby career.

A rich and anecdotal history revolves around today’s topic… my hair. Specifically, the lack of it. I’m my own hair stylist! I know, it’s hard to tell. Early on, I was renown for flamboyant (a fancy word for “stupid”) hair cuts that changed with every bout. I’ll admit, I got tired of the effort and my kids were tired of hiding from Daddy. So, it’s on a rare occasion that I do anything unusual to my hair these days. This is the set up for a recent rare occasion. With my hair being the focal point of this post, I think a little “history of the hair” is in order. This isn’t even close to the sampler platter of the “Atrocities to Bob’s Head” menu.
