Power Strip / Velvet Q (acoustic) / Ketamine Cat / RXN at Woodland Park Xoo
"WHOA who's this Power Strip?? I keep hearing about her all over! Everyone says she's super talented and almost as pretty as her older sister! ;) Okay yeah so obvi I'm going to this since it's my baby sister's first headlining show!! And at the Woodland Park Xoo which is a confusing name for a venue (as is the house venue Tacoma Dome. Like I get it, it's funny but c'mon.) Anyway, it's going to be a very cute and sweet and intimate show and I'm very excited."
Cashmere Cat & Darius at Q Nightclub

Ssnackss / Cromwell / Novopain at Kame Hou$e 206
Block Party Presents: Diet Cig at Chop Suey
"Seattle darlings Diet Cig top off the weekend at Chop Suey, and I can't wait."
What to listen to this weekend:
I love IDK and Denzel Curry’s new single “No Wave”, it’s production is on point! Hoping to see a music video in the near future.
Jasmine: MGMT - "Me and Michael"
I'm gonna be real, I thought MGMT were done after their last disaster of an album. And though they may never reach the heights of their Oracular Spectacular days, I'm actually really digging the singles they've been putting out for their upcoming album, Little Dark Age! "Me and Michael" is an 80s synth-pop dream and the accompanying video is really great as well.
Mikayla: Let's Eat Grandma - "Hot Pink"
Any song SOPHIE produces turns to gold, and this song is no exception. It's one of those combinations, that shouldn't work, but works quite well. Definitely worth a listen.
On Wednesday Falon Sierra released "Try Me", her first single since Sprained Ankles. "Try Me" has seductive instrumentals with lyrics of unexpected love, better believe this is going on my next slow jams playlist.
The Sunday afternoon, country influenced pop ballad from Lykke Li that you didn’t know you needed.
