DoYouHearTheMusic.com 2013 @SFOutsideLands Playlist

4 Aug

Figured since I am heading up to Outside Lands in a handful of days, why not put together a little playlist leading up to the festival.  A great lineup awaits and I only have two words, PAUL MCCARTNEY!   I cannot wait to see Sir Paul perform live, this is truly going to be a moment in time where everything else is going on pause for me.

Heading up to Outside Lands as well?  Here are a handful of acts I suggest you make your way to see:

  • twenty one pilots – look up their story when you have time but for now, click HERE
  • Phoenix – check out their production on their current dates
  • Vampire Weekend – Modern Vampires of the City should be up for album of the year
  • Jurassic 5 – if you never had the chance to see them back in the day, do yourself a favor now
  • D’Angelo – everyone should see him perform at least once
  • Zedd – fastest rising DJ in the world right now
  • The Head And The Heart- to this day one of my favorite shows I’ve seen at a festival
  • DAWES – their live show puts their albums to shame
  • Gary Clark Jr. – take the time to see this man
  • Wild Belle – Natalie Bergman’s voice will have you at the first note
  • Foals – see what everyone is talking about
  • King Tuff – stoked for this set
  • Rhye – talk about a rise to stardom, this should be a stellar performance
  • Deap Vally – you want to see two chicks rock, here’s your chance
  • Milo Greene -super talented quintet
  • The Growlers – hooked on these guys thanks to a friend’s suggestion
  • MS MR – fun show
  • The Wild Feathers and The Easy Leaves – good way to start your Sunday at OSL

News: Vision for Hendrix Park as vibrant as namesake (via The Seattle Times)

18 Aug

Any fan of Jimi Hendrix needs to read this article that ran in The Seattle Times about the Hendrix Park that is planned.

Here’s a excerpt from the story and you can click HERE to read the full piece written by Erik Lacitis’:

Since his death nearly 41 years go, Seattle has struggled to find a way to fully honor Jimi Hendrix, one of its most famous sons.

How the city should honor Hendrix has been a complicated, at times turbulent affair that on occasion has descended into accusations of racism and, on the other side, questions about why the city should memorialize someone who many associate with drugs.

But if all goes as planned, sometime in 2012, ground will be broken for some rather remarkable Hendrix-influenced structures at the 2.3-acre Jimi Hendrix Park next to the Northwest African American Museum.

It’s not a done deal.

Right now the Central District park exists as mostly lawn where the parking lot used to be for the old Colman School on South Massachusetts Street.

The cost for developing the site is estimated at nearly $2 million, says Carver Gayton, a member of the Jimi Hendrix Park Foundation and one of the prime movers behind the park.
