Tonight's Music: Pickwick, Polyrhythmics

Check out a free and delightfully soulful show from Pickwick tonight.

Posted By on Thu, Jan 12, 2012 at 7:22 PM

I'll cut to the chase here: I've been listening to essentially one band for the past two days and that band is called Pickwick. They are a bunch of nerdy-looking Seattle indie rockers who have, seemingly impossibly, decided to play soul music.

And the soul music they play is incredible. More incredible, perhaps, is the fact that they're playing a free show tonight at McMenamins Old St. Francis School.

Here's a video of the band playing "Hacienda Motel" in the studios at KEXP. If this song doesn't make you want to dance...I hate to break it to you, but you're probably a huge jerk. Sorry. But you are. Everybody thinks so. The show is at 7pm and it's freaking free!

If you still want to dance after this relatively early show, get your bad self to the Silver Moon where another Seattle band will be there to get you moving. Polyrhthmics, a horn-equipped Afrofunk band will be in the house with their world-spanning sound. That show is at 9pm.

Here they are in action.

PPP Logo Unveiled

MBSEF unveils 2012 PPP logo

Posted By on Tue, Jan 3, 2012 at 6:56 PM

We’ve only just received our first real winter storm of the season, but some the folks at MBSEF are already looking forward to the end of the season and the annual Pole, Pedal, Paddle, Central Oregon’s signature multisport race. Event promoter MBSEF unveiled this year’s official logo that will emblazon marketing materials and competitors' ubiquitous commemorative T-shirts. This year’s winning design was developed by Paul Leighton of Stellar Design.

It is to our eyes on of the most literal interpretations of the PPP theme with all five sports represented in the design. The only thing missing is smiles. The competitors depicted look more like Cold War-era Iron Curtain athletes than your average Tutu-wearing Bendite.
