The Parlotones

The South African Band The Parlotones made a swing through Seattle and I was lucky enough to get some shots of them. Unfortunately the venue wasn’t the best as there is a giant pole in the middle of the stage. Be sure to check out the photos I took of them on their prior tours.

You can see two sets of shots of them from the High Dive Set #1 and Set #2 in Seattle from a year ago. And a photo set from The Showbox Sodo and an interview with singer Kahn Morbee on Flotzam.com.

Watch It Sparkle at Hollow Earth Radio

Watch It Sparkle played a live In-Studio at Hollow Earth Radio an internet radio station based in Seattle. It was a low key event that was a few sets of live music followed by a few songs by artists the band like and then some chit-chat. It was good. Hollow Earth is a small and funky studio space but it has all the making of a real radio station. The lack of good chairs, microphones that may or may not work and only one set of cans (headphones) that work.

Lets hope that Hollow Earth Radio can grow and here is to Watch It Sparkle. If you have a chance to see them play in the Seattle/Portland corridor do it.

Tilly And The Wall

Remember when all the kids that were to cool for Brooklyn moved to Portland? Well, all the kids that were really cool moved to Omaha. And, some of those super-cool kids got together and formed Tilly And The Wall a fun indie-pop-rock band that has been around for 10 years yet seems to get little attention. I mean fuck…”John In The Morning” doesn’t even play them.

They first came across my RADAR not by US airplay but through Dew Process the label they are on in Australia. It wasn’t until I had the chance to shoot Flowers Forever when they were opening for Elf Power did I realize that Tilly And The Wall had a far broader reach than I could have ever imagined. Guitarist Derek Pressnall plays in both Tilly and Flowers Forever.

Then there is the fact that well. Omaha is Omaha, and if you are in one band from there then you are pretty much in all bands from there. It seems to be one little incestuous band orgy. That’s a good thing.

What make Tilly stand out for most people is the lack of a drummer. Instead they use tap dancers or at least one main tap dancer Jamie Pressnall (nee Williams). As you can see they even made an skit for Sesame Street which is fitting because according to WIkipedia Jamie Pressnall was a kindergarten teacher.

So, to bring it all home. Tilly And The Wall are a great band that is well worth listening to and if you want to dig deeper read their album notes and cross check them with other bands from Omaha and you will see the soap opera for yourself.

Enjoy the pictures. There may be a few more itching to come out in the future.
