Fri, 13 Jul 2007 04:48:00 +0000Thursday night I played an open mic at Mr. Spot's Chai House in Ballard. It was my third time in the four years I've lived in the neighborhood and not much has changed, which is a good thing. Same host, Chris; same poets, musicians and beatboxing. I happened to catch a really captivating singer-songwriter that went by the name Abba. Her vocals are a cross between Regina Spektor and Cat Power. Check her out here or on her myspace page. She's playing tonight at Trabant Chai Lounge at 8 p.m.

Tue, 10 Jul 2007 06:37:00 +0000I may catch a lot of flack for this, but my introduction to the shoegazer movement of the '90s wasn't My Bloody Valentine. It was Swervedriver when I saw "Rave Down" on MTV's 120 Minutes. Swervedriver really caught my attention because in comparison to other bands of the genre, they were masters of crafting a good pop song. Tons of guitar effects may have encompassed singer/guitarist Adam Franklin's vocals, but at the core of each song were great lyrics and melodies. Franklin plays the Crocodile Cafe on Saturday, July 14, in support of his solo album Bolts and Melody. Opening are local nu-gazers Head Like a Kite and Sleep Eyes of Death who are celebrating the release of their new album Street Lights for a Rib Cage. 9 p.m., $10 adv/$12 dos, 21+.
