Wednesday, November 27 I The 3rd Annual Vogue Retorspective with Feast, Palooka and Ancient Warlocks – Seattle, Washington Feast was one of those “coulda been” groups that never broke out of the underground. Originally called Feast of Friends after a William Blake poem, the band showcased Tom Mick on vocals, Dan Blossom on guitar, Jane Higgins on bass, and Dan Peters on drums.
Feast was extremely charismatic live, with Mick playing the active front man. The band’s sound combined the Deep Six punk/metal hybrid with postpunk. In 1986 Feast had become a top draw at The Central. “Feast was always one of my favorite bands,” promoter Claudia Gehrke states in an email. “… they had a very heavy sound. I remember when I [booked a show with] Soundgarden and Feast together. Feast was the headliner at the time, and then we found out that Soundgarden was getting scoped out for a record deal. We had to switch the lineup to Soundgarden playing at the headliner time. It was a huge night. Both bands were great. Feast was a guaranteed heavy hitter. [They had] great posters, stepping out into their own brand of art and music. I wish I had seen them get signed. They always had a great crowd.”
Wednesday, December 4 I Jeff Timmons Live in Zeppa Auditorium at The German House with special guests “Men of The Strip” – Rochester, New York Jeff Timmons is the founding member of the internationally acclaimed, multi-platinum, Grammy Nominated selling group 98 Degrees, which has sold over 15 million albums with 4 top 5 radio singles. The group produced mega-hits such as “The Hardest Thing”, “I Do”, “Because of You”, and the number one hit single featuring Mariah Carey called, “Thank God I Found You.” The group also collaborated with Stevie Wonder on the song, “True to Your Heart”, on the soundtrack for Disney’s hit animated feature Mulan. 98 Degrees’ albums have reached gold or platinum status in more than 60 countries around the world
After his stellar success with 98 Degrees, Jeff ventured out as a soloist, and single-handedly wrote and produced his first solo album which was released as a joint venture with Rising Phoenix and SLG Music. The album’s first single produced a top 20 hit on both the Billboard and R&R charts with song, “Whisper That Way”. “Whisper That Way” was among the most added singles at radio each week it was on the air. This song also reached number 1 in a number of major markets out-performing Usher’s “Burn”, and Alicia Keys “If I Ain’t Got You.” The album also produced three more chart-topping singles worldwide. In 2010 a single entitled “Emotional High” leaked to the radio international and went #1 in 14 countries.
Currently Jeff is hard at work writing his first book, recording a new record, building out his new Las Vegas show, in addition to pursuing film and television opportunities. Jeff’s most recent involvement with TV is for a new VH1 green-lit series called Miss You Much where Jeff’s 30-minute episode will be used as the shows main pilot in addition to being one of the first aired in the series.

Saturday, December 14 I The Warehouse Presents :: Modern Kin – Tacoma, Washington After completing their World Tour it only make sense to host Modern Kin in Tacoma! More formal details to come but the folks at The Warehouse are excited to announce that this event will be held at Grit City Grindhouse.
The band formed in 2007, in a SE neighborhood of Portland, Oregon. They were called Drew Grow & the Pastors’ Wives then, a sort of imaginative and sensitive family. Propelled by leader Drew Grow’s extraordinary songwriting, and armed with shared hopes of honoring a sustainable life dedicated to music, the four members worked tirelessly together to bring their vision to life. Their communal house served as a kind of DIY factory – a record label (Amigo/Amiga) was formed by drummer Jeremiah Hayden, songs were written, practised and recorded, t-shirts screened, tours booked, all within their four walls. And they experienced some successes – their gritty, soulful, self-propelled album earned them national tours with Wild Flag, and The Head & The Heart.
In 2012, the band trimmed down to its three core members (Grow, Hayden, and bassist Kris Doty) entered the studio, and emerged with a new name, a recombined sense of purpose, and a record spun with the elbow grease and fervent drive that had first brought them together. Modern Kin’s debut was also the debut of Janet Weiss (Sleater-Kinney, Quasi, Wild Flag) as a producer. Basic tracks were recorded in a blazing eight days at the now-defunct Hangar Studios in Sacramento, California, with engineer Bryce Gonzales (Here We Go Magic, The Breeders, Devandra Banhart) before the band returned home to their refuge, their basement studio, to put the finishing touches on the songs. Two of the tracks, “Abandon” and “Big Enough to Cook,” were mixed by Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, MGMT, Tame Impala) , while the remainder were mixed by K. Evan Hodge III and Drew Grow.
Bound by tenacity, friendship, and a compelling desire to make formidable music together, Modern Kin releases their self-titled debut album October 22, on Amigo/Amiga Recordings. Says Mark Baumgarten of the Seattle Weekly after Modern Kin’s first show together, “their electrifying performance in that dark underground club before a handful of people convinced me that Drew Grow is in fact destined for great things.”
