Watch The Thrown Epps with Mark Arm Tonight Via Free Live Stream!

I just hope he can forgive me for not having my eyebrows on last time I saw him at the post office! I mean really, it's right in the "Grunge Rule Book" that Xana is to remain forever looking like "'90s Xana."  Sheesh what a slacker I am, tisk tisk. I sure hope streaming this and filming it for our little grunge time capsule here will make up for my makeup failures! Join us tonight at The Central Tavern for what's sure to be a fun show -- it's free and it's a dark drizzly day -- what better time to head into downtown Seattle and watch Mark Arm jump around and scream a little?! I would like to thank John Leighton Beezer from The Thrown Ups, Jeffrey Smith of Mr. Epp, and Lilith Kemnitz of The Central Tavern for coming together and bringing this joyous reunion to fruition. Also on stage tonight is Joe Smitty, Ed Fotheringham, Scott Schickler, Michael Falhauber, plus special guests!

West Seattle Street Fair Starts Off Splendid with Vaudeville Etiquette

I just know that in another life I was a circus performer of some sort. I feel oddly comfortable with all sorts of performers, and today I hit gold getting a few minutes with Seattle's Vaudeville Etiquette, a new folk rock band that's been making steady and strong steps in the local music scene as well as touring the West Coast to support their new album, Debutantes & Dealers. 

Bradley Laina is quickly becoming 
one of my favorite singers in Seattle. 
Be sure to check out their Facebook 
page for other upcoming festivals they're
playing at this summer. 

Tayler Lynn sings, plays the accordion, and shakes the 
tambourine like a pro... but her real talent lies in 
her mastery of bringing the sexy back to bazooka playing!

The West Seattle Street Fair runs all weekend. I noticed how mellow yet busy it was -- clean, yet full of tasty looking food, and the music -- perfect!

See The Mothership at Hempfest 2014

As always, I stand by my humble yet highly valued opinion that The Mothership's new CD, Bright Side of Dimis one of the best hard rock albums to ever come out of Seattle. They are here to stay, like those pesky aliens we keep seeing in Belltown! (You know who you are) Hempfest Seattle runs 3 days, and starts Friday the 15th. So come on down, it's free! The Mothership takes the stage at 2:00 p.m. sharp! 

Shine Music Project is happy to provide a free live stream for this event. Check our calendar on our main page to see our live filming and streaming schedule, here on Xanaland

Here's a handy map of Hempfest 2014

Shine Music Project's Live Stream Schedule For July 2014

If there's anything Sancho loves, it's having lots of great live music to share with the world. We are fortunate to be able to provide this service for those who don't live in Seattle or can't make it out to all the many great shows! 

This is our tentative schedule for July:

Believe it or not, we have no plans at this time for the 4th of July, but we will update this page if that changes

July 6th ~ Ron E. Banner hosts acoustic nights at Slim's Last Chance every Tuesday, and on this night, Villains of Yesterday will be playing -- we dig them a lot and had them at our own BBQ recently. This time we will be able to share it with the world! 

July 11th at The Tractor Tavern ~ We are really excited to see Into the Cold, a local all-star project we seem to keep missing featuring Katy Cornell. Also in the band are Owen Wright, William Stover, Gene Devereaux, Keith Jaeger and Denny Markopolous.
 Opening is Strong Suit with Chris FrielJustin S. Davis, Keith Ash, Gary Westlake, and Sean P. Bates -- folks, this is truly an all-star lineup! I'd venture to say it may sell out in the tiny Tractor so buy your tickets early! 

July 26th at Slim's Last Chance ~ The Guessing Game with Kim Virant and Stereo Embers -- this is going to be fantastic because their live outdoor stage is unmatched in the summer! 

Special thanks to Streambox for providing our webcast services.

Watch Witchburn's Acoustic Set & Der Hexenhammer Video Premier via Free Live Stream Tonight from the Feedback Lounge!

We have something special we've added to the live stream and will be trying it out tonight: a chat room right on the live page, so if you tune in, give it a try! I think it will be more useful when I can man the tower and not be filming at the same time, but I just wanted to let everyone know! 

Go to our 'Live Performance' page at 9:00 p.m. Seattle time!

Watch Guessing Game & Shawn Smith via Free Live Stream Tonight From The Sunset Tavern in Ballard!

Well, that glorious day is upon us! The long-awaited CD release show of The Guessing Game is tonight and that electric feeling is all around! There are many shows tonight in Seattle -- in fact, Guessing Game's Gary Westlake is playing a benefit earlier in the evening for the victims of the Oso mudslide -- although Gary's in high demand, we just hope his two-timing ways don't affect his performance tonight! Joking of course, he could play all day and evening and still be amazing.... He's probably playing his guitar right now! And since that is much earlier in the evening, we fully expect the crowd to migrate over to The Sunset Tavern for this!
