Swedish-American husband and wife indie pop duo Flora Cash opened at Neptune Theatre last week in Seattle. The members discovered each others’ music on Soundcloud 6 years ago while living on opposite sides of the earth. They have yet to reveal the meaning of their catchy band name.
Their music which brought them together turned into a hit single (top 10 on the charts) ‘You’re Somebody Else’ and a sold out show. Their onstage chemistry captivated the audience. Watch their Neptune performance below.
LA based indie pop band lovelytheband performed at Seattle’s Neptune Theatre on April 20th, AKA ‘weed’s’ birthday – so the lead singer declared, and went on to sing a birthday song. The night was monumental for the trio as it was their first ever sold-out headliner show. Lead vocalist Mitchy Collins engaged with the crowd throughout the night and was more charismatic than one might originally assume.
Watch and feel the packed crowd’s energy and admiration at the Neptune as the band performs ‘Make You Feel Pretty’ below:
Lovelytheband is most noted for their smash hit single ‘Broken’ – a song about loneliness in our populated world. “I like that you’re broken, broken like me/ Maybe that makes me a fool/ I like that you’re lonely, lonely like me/ I could be lonely with you.”

The Glenn Miller and His Orchestra was formed in 1956 with its unique jazz sound and has been touring since then consistently all over the world.

Blues, soul, folk rocker Citizen Cope played two nights at Seattle’s The Showbox At the Market debuting songs from his long awaited ‘Heroin and Helicopters’ album – (his first in 6 years) named after Carlos Santana’s advice to stay away from the 2 H’s. His moving performance was one for all his fans to remember.
Lead singer Clarence Greenwood sings from the soul and audience members feel his optimism and positive outlook on life. His band members accompany him beautifully. From his own words on the music he creates…..
“It’s just about dealing with your own personal struggles and what I feel the coldness of society does to your life, I think everybody feels like there are elements in this world that are not so fuzzy and warm, and we see the harshness in the reality of life. Life is not an easy thing, but we need to look for a commonality of love and empathy that can conquer even the worse situations.”
“I don’t want people thinking I’m promoting heroin or anything. It’s so prophetic how we’re in this huge epidemic of people overdosing and prescription drugs. And then with the helicopter reference, that indulgence of getting somewhere really fast in our society — with material wealth, with all the short cuts of the Internet. I don’t think we’ve had the same kind of authentic art and culture as other generations had; When you look at Martin Luther King or Albert Einstein or some of the great writers and painters who have come before us, and leaders and athletes and stuff, it seems like we haven’t had the same level of input from our fellow man. Everything has been on hyperspeed to economic empowerment as opposed to personal growth and actually questioning the ills of society, and that’s something I think we should correct”

True Art is unbridled individual expressions free from any exogenous biases – so long as the expression was indeed TRUE to the individual and not done solely for monetary gains.
If True Art gains attention by the people, it should always be allowed to be expressed. Art reveals the problems and issues of our society, and Art also conveys many solutions for societies – we just need to pay attention and listen to understand.
“In a decaying society, Art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable. And help to change it” ~ Ernst Fischer
All our great presidents have been poetic – go to DC if you think otherwise. Art allows humans to be free, honest, transparent, and to express their deepest feelings and emotions.
We all are products of all the past human achievements (creation of language, ideology, information, science, education, societal system, and Art). Therefore, it would be wise for us to reflect upon this and be thankful for how good we have it today than yesterday.
