Live Review: Smokey Robinson with the Oregon Symphony at Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, Feb. 14

02_14_15wwsmokeyrobinson157

This might read like minor heresy, but Smokey Robinson is the quintessential Motown artist—more than Stevie, Marvin, the Supremes or the Temptations. For one thing, he wrote songs for almost all the rest of them. And whereas those other legends’ greatest achievements came in defiance of Berry Gordy’s well-oiled machine, Robinson’s trove of hits defined the sound of the label, if...   More

Live Review: Sleater-Kinney at the Knitting Factory in Spokane, Feb. 8

carrie

Who the hell kicks off a tour in Spokane?I’m pretty sure bands actually from Spokane don’t start their tours here, much less a band fans have been clamoring to see again for close to a decade. Yet, this is where Sleater-Kinney decided to play its first show in nine years—at a chain concert venue, in the middle of a drab downtown that seemed to have gone to sleep an hour before Car...   More
