They are available in every color you could desire at American Apparel on Broadway.
Oct 22, 2013 Jeff Kirby commented on The Underappreciated Guitar Heroics of Earthless' Isaiah Mitchell.
Last night's show was arguably the best guitar performance I have ever witnessed in my life. I found myself wondering several times over the course of the set if Hendrix or Allman could have done what Isaiah Mitchell was doing. It was some otherworldly speed, dexterity, and creativity.

Fantastic cover photo.
May 9, 2013 Jeff Kirby commented on The 2013 Genius Awards Finalists Get Their Cakes!.
Every year I look at the short list for the Stranger Genius Awards hoping to see Ben Verellen nominated for music and every year he is ignored. He has the distinct honor of making dozens and dozens of local and national bands sound better with his amplifiers, then he picks up a guitar and makes them all sound inferior to his band Helms Alee. I haven't seen one nominee since the inception of that award that holds a candle what Ben has accomplished and offered the Seattle music scene.

You know, I was watching Star Wars the other day and I thought to myself, "What this franchise needs is more lens flares."

I lived three years in that glorious shithole and loved every minute of it. I wanted to find out when they were finally demolishing it so I could drink beer in a lawn chair in the Lifelong parking lot while it came down, but I guess I blew it. RIP

Excellent piece, Christopher
Aug 10, 2012 Jeff Kirby commented on Farewell, Akimbo.
Akimbo has been the one consistently amazing band in the Seattle music scene from my teenage years to my now impending thirties. At this point, I'm confident I've seen them live more than any other band. Going to their shows never got old. As soon as they start playing I am transformed into a headbanging, fist-pumping fanboy. Jon has inadvertently hit me in the face with his bass in a pizza shop before I could drive a car. I've barfed all over the inside of their tour van after an awful show in a steak house in Wenatchee. They taught me invaluable life mantras: "Have a good time all the time," "Fuck Everett, Fuck Tacoma," "Eat beer, shit riffs." Both as a band and as dudes, Akimbo are the fucking best. Thanks for everything.

Seeing how it is a running trend in your posts, I conducted some brief online "research" as to why one might refer to their singular self as "we," and it yielded two possible answers: 1) You suffer from Dissociative Identity Disorder, or 2) You are a pompous git.
