Seattle Pop Punk Festival Day 1 at Highline Bar
Step Dads // Mhostly Ghostly // Forest Ray // Avalanchea at Alternative Library (Bellingham)
"One of my favorite spaces in Bellingham is the Alternative Library! This eclectic and massive space is home to some of the best live performances Bellingham has seen! It's tall ceilings definitely have the right angles for all your insta stories and selfies to be had. Don't forge about the music though, Bellingham's very own Step Dads will be melting faces along side Mhostly Ghostly, Forest Ray, and Avalanchea!"
Ever So Android at The Crocodile
"I've yet to see Ever So Android play and I'm suuuuper stoked to finally get the opportunity! Also local grunge cuties MONSTERWATCH are opening and I'm so stoked for them! Shout out to other local openers Among Authors and FLRT!"

BØRNS at Showbox SoDo
"With BØRNS new album out this week, this is the perfect opportunity to see them play songs from Blue Madonna before anyone else!"
Coco Columbia w/ LiquidLight & ICE PARTY at Substation
What to listen to this weekend:
"Lil Peep's latest track with Marshmello comes after the star's tragic passing, but listening to new music after his death has created a healing moment through song. The track is called 'Spotlight' it wavers between Marshmello's bass-y production and Lil Peep's classic ode to pop punk influences. If you are a fan of Lil Peep, I encourage you to check this track out, it's a sweet reminder that music lives on even after the artist has left us."
Jasmine: Young Fathers - "In My View"
"Definitely gonna be vibing to Young Fathers new single "In My View." The Scottish art-rap trio just announced they’ll be releasing their third album Cocoa Sugar this March. Cocoa Sugar will be out March 9 through Ninja Tune. It follows 2014’s Mercury Prize-winning DEAD and 2015’s White Men Are Black Men Too."
Mikayla: Tune-Yards - "Heart Attack"
"My co-worker introduced me to Tune-Yards last month and lately I've been really digging the singles they've been releasing. However their last single before the album, I can feel you creep into my private life, which releases this Friday, is by far my favorite. It's catchy and dark, and the music video is artsy and creepy, matching perfectly with the feeling of the song. If you haven't heard it yet, make sure to check it out before the album comes out!"
"Kali Uchis and Tyler, The Creator, my personal favorite duo, are back, this time accompanied by Bootsy Collins. Uchis’ new track 'After The Storm' is a smooth, empowering jam to get you through your winter blues or whatever else you’re going through."
"After the smash 'Havana' has been gracing the billboard charts with a club hit embracing Cabello's Cuban heritage, I’m curious to see if she follows suit with more bangers on her debut solo album."
