Supporter for Gigantic Bicycle Festival

Gigantic is the Pacific Northwest's annual summer celebration of bicycle culture. The two day, mid august festival features a diverse, multi-faceted and regionally representative mix of live music, hand-built bicycles, visual & performance art, film, comedy, guest speakers, sculpture, and interactive installation pieces. The majority of festival goers annually arrive at the grounds via bicycle along supported (and highly praised) century and 70 mile road rides leaving Seattle's Magnuson Park.

Review of Julia Massey(& the FFD), The Hoot Hoots, and The Great Um at the Tractor Tavern, 1/24/2013
On a soggy Thursday evening, my partner-in-crime and I made our way into Ballard's Tractor Tavern for the perfect cure for our mildew blues: Julia Massey and the Five Finger Discounts, The Hoot Hoots, and the Great Um.
Review of Julia Massy & the Five Finger Discount's Five Letters From Far Away
Five Letters From Far Away, the new album from Julia Massey and the Five Finger Discount, is a cosmic pop journey, space exploration through a dance-party sector of the universe.
Review of Topographies (Liz Rognes)
Liz Rognes is a woman who is not afraid of her own self, her strengths and her flaws, and she sings her truth in a voice of redemption. Life is a stance worth taking, and she takes it, and turns it into great music.
Review of Roaming Herds of Buffalo
The self-titled debut of Seattle band, Roaming Herds of Buffalo, is a poppy, mosiacal foray into the mind of lead singer/songwriter Scott Roots, and is one of the better indie debuts I've heard in a while.
Review of Something in the Trees @ The High Dive, 2011-01-15
...with cool assurance, absurdist without pleading, filtering their many influences and relationships into their own unique and unified sound...
Review of How Hard a Heart of Gold Can Be EP (James Apollo)
...the EP is an aural glimpse of a ghost, an Americana wanderer searching for a frontier that disappeared in the gaudy neon of the modern world...
Review of After All This Time (Low-Fi)
With their sophomore album, After All This Time, Boise band Low-Fi pierces to the indie rock heart of Idaho's venison topography.
