The Big Wheel Stunt Shows’ Last Stand
Big Wheel Stunt Show said goodbye to their fans in fine fashion last Saturday night. The New Frontier was full and people were being turned away early for the free final performance. Brotherhood of The Black Squirrel and The Hardcount both reunited to play in support of Big Wheel and Gold Records added to evenings rocking performances.
Big Wheel Stunt Show provided its loyal fans just what they had come to see and expect from them. It was a thunderous show full of energy and sentimentality. A touching moment was shared by the three members as they shared a shot. You could see the reflection in their brief pause but then it was back to business. Big Wheel rolled through many of their crowd pleasing songs having fun all the way.
During a few songs members from other bands, fans and maybe even strangers joined them on stage for what can only be described as chaotic fun. Big Wheel Stunt Show will not only be missed for their music and legendary shows. These guys were supporters of the local music scene. They didn’t want to be just a good band in a good music scene; they wanted to be a great band in a great scene. They rallied bands, put on great shows and worked to elevate those around them. Job well done guys. You’ll be truly missed!

Playing to a packed Showbox crowd Friday February 21st The English Beat keep the music flowing and the audience moving! Running through hit after hit it was a crowd pleasing set that kept the floor bouncing the entire night.
Front man Dave Wakeling was in great form and energy, keeping the mood positive and light. Joking about getting old and not remembering much of the 80′s. But the crowd remembered! Singing and dancing along to “I’ll Take You There”, “Hands Off She’s Mine”, and of course “Mirror In The Bathroom” and “Twist and Crawl” transporting some of us back in time to the US Festival seeing them there in 1983.
It was a fun evening of lively tunes, seeing a band still having fun and appreciating that their music still resonates! Check their website at http://englishbeat.net/ and see if they’ll be near you soon. It’s a must see! I’m hoping I don’t have to wait very long before they head this way again.
Local band The Georgetown Orbits opened the show with a blistering as well. The Georgetown Orbits got the crowd moving and into the show from the first note. Playing infectious ska and groovin tunes, this band was the perfect opener! Keep tuned to www.nwczradio.com for an interview soon with them. This is a local band you should get behind and support with not hesitation!

Key Arena, Seattle WA
Imagine Dragons played to a packed, sold out Key Arena this past Tuesday. They put on a great show of lights & showmanship AND they sound as good live as they do on CD, probably even better! I didn’t get to stay for the whole show, but what I saw & heard was amazing.
Their set list was: Fallen, Tiptoe, Hear Me, It’s Time, Who We Are, Rocks, The River, Cha-Ching (Till We Grow Older), Amsterdam, Tom Sawyer (Rush cover), Monster, On Top of the World, Underdog, Demons, Radioactive, Encore: Nothing Left to Say
