Busy week at The Boom. The Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio and King Tuff appearing LIVE!

Two in store performances in one week is a bit unusual for us.  But, we couldn't be more excited about hosting these acts.

The Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio is playing Thursday in support of their new full length, Close, But No Cigar AND their Record Store Day 2018 release, Live At KEXP!  

The group channels old-school organ combos like The Meters and Booker T & The MGs, but are making it fresh and feel new again! 

Sonic Boom is the first stop on a 9 date tour.  The hometown trio will be hitting the stage at 7:00.

 

 

 

 

KINGTUFF_InstoresAdmat.jpg

Friday brings Sub Pop artist King Tuff.  Kyle Thomas, AKA King Tuff, will be performing solo in support of his new release, The Other.  

Via the Sub Pop siteThomas views the entire experience of writing and recording The Other as a kind of psychic reset. “I let the songs lead me where they wanted to go, instead of trying to push them into a certain zone. King Tuff was always just supposed to be me. When I started doing this as a teenager, it was whatever I wanted it to be. King Tuff was never supposed to be just one thing. It was supposed to be everything.”

King Tuff will perform at 7:00 Friday evening

 

As always, these shows are both free and all ages.

Honky Tonk Pod. Cocaine and Rhinestones' Search For The Truth

Cocaine_Rhinestones_Podcast_Art.jpg

Living outside of the downtown metropolitan area, I spend an awful lot of time commuting. Podcasts have become an essential tool to help soften the blow of sitting on my ass for hours at a time on the bus. There are go-to podcast favorites that keep me engaged, but I'm always looking for a new source or subject to explore.  Last week, both the New Yorker and Pitchfork profiled a new podcast titled "Cocaine and Rhinestones" produced and hosted by Tyler Mahan Coe, son of country legend David Alan Coe. The pitch went something like this;  

Cocaine & Rhinestones puts country’s history up for debate again, arguing that nothing is settled and everything is still subject to opposing viewpoints and agendas. At the center of every episode of this homegrown series—which Coe writes, produces, and records on his own time and his own dime—is some mystery about country music, some disagreement, some essential unknown. Who actually wrote Bobbie Gentry’s 1967 hit “Ode to Billie Joe”? What makes the Louvin Brothers’ harmonies so otherworldly? And was Jeannie C. Riley really blackmailed—with leaks of nude photos—into resigning with her former label after her anti-slutshaming anthem “Harper Valley PTA” became a crossover hit?"

On that, I was totally sold, immediately subscribed that day to Mahan Coe's podcast and began binging away. If you have a love for country, Americana, folk or music tall tales in general, this one's definitely worth the time.
