The last time I checked in with Alan Singley (back in November for this edition of my weekly column), he was super-stoked about the direction his new songs were taking. Singley, whose known for high ener...   More

Here Comes Your Fan: The Accidental Venue




Last Monday night, I found myself wandering under the Fremont Bridge's industrial east side. The block I was pacing—between North Albina Avenue and Tillamook Street, just off the MAX's yellow line—was as empty as a ghost town. Half expecting to see tumblew...   More
