Kimball Allen is the Media & Booking Rep for Seattle based Americana Heartland Rock band and singer-songwriter Angelo Delsenno (think of a whisky drinking Bruce Springsteen). With a collaboration of talented Pacific Northwest artists including Andrew Joslyn from Macklemore‘s crew, a poetic and heartfelt EP self-titled “Angelo Delsenno and the Empty Sky” is about to launch. Their next scheduled performance will be on Saturday, December 7th atThe White Rabbit in Fremont.
Our star, Ta’rea Campbell, who played the disco diva Deloris Van Cartier, never lacked stage presence or luster. Similarly, Mother Superior, performed by Hollis Resnik, was sensationally uptight!
Seattle’s annual forty plus year running music and arts event Bumbershoot is a mega festival and at times a bit overwhelming when it comes to deciding what to see due to a competitive lineup and the large crowds. The three-day festival is held at the iconic Seattle Center, which is at the base of the Spaceneedle, an impressive backdrop for any concert.

When hosting out of town guests do you ever struggle with finding unique, affordable, local experiences to do with them? Are you starting to get exhausted of the same ‘ol tourist attractions? I haven’t even lived here that long and I’m already maxing out on my site seeing quotas. I’ve reached my limit on how many tours I can give of an alley wall covered with ABC (Already Been Chewed) gum, or an overpriced elevator ride to the top of our beloved Space Needle to enjoy an equally overpriced coffee at the top.

The historic Capitol Hill Egyptian Theatre, built in 1915, has been operated for 24 years by the art and independent movie house company, Landmark Theatres. Over the past few days, rumors of a looming closure have been whirling around the Hill. Landmark Theatres’ spokesperson, Lauren Kleiman, has officially confirmed that they will be closing at the end of the month. Art imitates life as the final film, which will be featured on June 27, will end minutes before the theatre goes dark, and is coincidentally titled “Before Midnight.” This is a sad farewell to a theatre that has been so influential in bringing diverse and sophisticated films to the neighborhood.
