festival // Fall Free for All : 2012

This October, Tacoma’s Broadway Center hosted a weekend-long arts and cultural festival in the heart of downtown Tacoma—the 2012 Fall Free For All. We managed to capture a few of the excellent music performances along with several of the other sights and experiences—the wide variety of which represented some of Tacoma’s and the greater Pac NW’s best [...]

music // OK Sweetheart : 2012.02.04 : Goldfinch Spaceworks

One of our favorite acts from the 2011 Doe Bay Fest was undoubtedly OK Sweetheart. We adore their soulful and sweetly purring pop—songs that feel both in the moment and timeless. Last weekend, Tacoma band Goldfinch asked them to headline an intimate show christening Goldfinch’s new Spaceworks residency.  We wouldn’t have been anywhere else in Tacoma that night! When we ran [...]

In October, Tacoma’s Broadway Center hosted a weekend-long arts and cultural festival in the heart of downtown Tacoma—the 2011 Fall Free for All. We managed to capture a few of the excellent music performances by some of the northwest’s best local musicians. Above is the first video—locals Concours d’Elegance blowing away the crowd with their tight new [...]

music // Kelli Schaefer : 2011.07.22 : The Space

Just down Tacoma’s “Opera Alley“ lives a place called The Space—a bare bones venue seemingly afloat over the harbor lights and darkened streets of Tacoma’s industrial port. A perfect showbox for the visceral music of Portland’s Kelli Schaefer. Kelli may hail from across state lines, but as the night’s presenter Adam (of The Warehouse) observed, Tacoma could easily [...]
