EMP Sound Off! Now accepting applications

It’s that time again! EMP is beginning their round up for the best underage Seattle bands. For many, this could be the chance of a lifetime in starting off their musical career. It doesn’t matter what genre you specialize in whether it be hip hop, electronic, pop, etc – you just have to be under 21. Prizes include a spot on the Bumbershoot 2011 lineup, a live on-air performance on 107.7 THE END, epiphone gear and much much more.

This battle of the bands has done wonders for many local bands in the past. Previous winners include Dyme Def, The Lonely Forest now signed with Chris Walla’s label, Dyno Jamz, and Brite Futures formerly known as Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head. For more information and to submit an application – click here.

Out on the Town: 7/17

Brite Futures formerly known as Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head will be performing at Neumos tonight for the “Drink for the Kids” finale show benefiting the Vera Project. The band will perform alongside Sap’n and Motopony.

Only $14 and all ages. You should go! It’s for a good cause. If you don’t, you’re a jerk. So eat all your food at the Bite and then go dance your ass off at Neumos.

Doors are at 8:00

All-Ages Movement Project

The All-Ages Movement Project won the $50,000 prize in the Pepsi Refresh Everything campaign earlier this year. As a result, The Vera Project in Seattle hosted a show today from 1-3:30 PM featuring Zephyrs, Naomi Punk, and one of my favorite Seattle bands of all time Minus the Bear. MTV productions were also be present along with Suchin Pak to record footage for a special MTV presentation that will air at a later date.

The All-Ages Movement Project exists in local venues that showcase hip-hop, indie, and punk music. These venues are open to all young individuals of all ages who enjoy seeing live music and performing music. They offer opportunities to learn new skills through internships with the venues, showcasing their art in shows, and recording music through their own recording studio. I have been involved with the all-ages movement since I was 15 years and old and I cannot even begin to express how much it has done for me and the impact that these venues have had on the local Seattle music scene. These venues include the Kirkland Teen Center, The Old Redmond Firehouse, Ground Zero Teen Center in Bellevue, and The Vera Project.

What Seattle bands have had their start through all-ages teen centers?

  • Death Cab for Cutie
  • Common Market
  • Brite Futures (formerly known as Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head)
  • Danger Radio
  • The Scene Aesthetic
  • Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground
  • Minus the Bear

At the end of the show, I had a few minutes to catch up w/ MTV correspondent Suchin Pak who filled me in on the Pepsi Refresh Project.

Basically the project has $1,300,000 that they give away to people with great ideas and the All-Ages Movement Project won their $50,000  grant back in February so they’ve been traveling for three weeks visiting their recipients and documenting footage to be shown on channels like MTV, VH1, Comedy Central etc. Seattle was their last stop!

Local Seattle Band backs up the “smiling” star herself

Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head. What comes to mind when you think about this? Then you ask yourself, is this really the name of a band? YES and they are from SEATTLE. I first heard about them maybe… four years ago maybe? They started back in 2005 which is when I first started going to shows too. I never really thought much about them, they played at shows and festivals I went to but since I was never there to see them I kind of just either skipped it our did my own thing until I saw the bands I wanted to see. I remember talking to Miss Kiku about them and also brushing them off when Kelly had asked me if I wanted to contact them for my shows.

Wanna know where they are today?

Opening for Lily Allen. I’m … sort of kicking myself a little bit now.


and for a visual, the lovely Natalie Portman

The winner of the 8th Annual Sound Off! Competition is…


Congratulations guys! I am such a fan, I’m actually sorry I haven’t listened to any of their stuff until now and even more disappointed in myself for not attending the finals last night at the EMP. My friend Nick who plays bass in Dyno Jamz is also a part of another band that I adore Man in the Blue Van.

Sound Off! is associated w/ the EMP, 107.7 THE END, The Old Redmond Fire House, Bumbershoot, Folk Life, The Vera Project, and The Stranger and previous winners include: Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head, The Lonely H, School Yard Heroes and Idiot Pilot.

Their stuff is really great, I’m quite impressed. Can’t wait to see them at Bumbershoot this year!!

Check them out.
