The Flavr Blue – Majesty
We really love seeing how far this Seattle group has gone. With every new release, their music just keeps getting better and better.

The Flavr Blue – Feathers
22 Nov 2014
It just so happened that my day off landed on the day of The Flavr Blue concert in San Francisco. I’ve missed countless shows from not being in Seattle for the last year and every time I did come back to Seattle, I would always miss their shows by a couple of days. It was the worst luck. I’m so glad I got to see them this week because they are even more wonderful than before and it’s nice to have a slice of home in your new home.
Hollis and I also finally got the chance to meet each other for the first time! “Of course I know who you are, you’re Katie Yow Yow!”
We’ve always liked working with her and can’t wait to see what amazing things she’s going to do next with The Flavr Blue and on her own.

I know we’re a little bit early on letting you know that The Flavr Blue is going to be in the Bay, but that’s just how excited I am about this! I love when pieces of home find me in the Bay and I’ve been waiting for The Flavr Blue to return back to the Bay Area so there’s no way that I’m missing this show at DNA Lounge. A concert on a Wednesday evening? Looks like we’ll have to find a way to make this work. Also, while we’re thrilled about the San Francisco date, we figured that the group might have fans all over the West Coast so these dates are for you too!

When this song was first released, I was so excited about it. I probably listened to it every day last summer. This weekend I’m flying back to my hometown, but completely blowing it and missing them at Sasquatch. I can’t win. All I got was this music video and that no where near compares to a live performance from them. For everyone seeing them at the Gorge – have so much fun!

The Flavr Blue – Ghost
This song wasn’t featured on either of their albums, but it’s one of my favorites to see them perform live.

Similar to CMJ, I always get a little excited when I hear that some of my favorite local Seattle bands are headed off to SXSW.
- The Flavr Blue
- Hey Marseilles
- Allen Stone
- Cardiknox – okay so they’re in NY, but Thomas Dutton was from Seattle
- Kris Orlowski
- La Luz
- Mary Lambert
Also – shameless plug, one of my favorite Seattle bands, The Flavr Blue is performing at Neumos for their SXSW send-off and if you’re not doing anything tomorrow night, then you should definitely be there. It’s only $5 and it will pretty much be the best time of your life. It’s not sold out yet. I wish I were home.

We have a little bit of something called a “soft spot” when it comes to former Yow Yow! guests getting media attention. Our girl, Hollis Wong-Wear walked the red carpet at the Grammys Sunday evening because if Macklemore and Ryan Lewis had won for Album of the Year she would have gotten to walk up on stage with the group to accept that award. Sadly, the win wasn’t in their favor, but that didn’t mean that the duo didn’t take home plenty of awards including “Best Rap Album.” Though we know her for her rift in “White Walls,” Hollis has played a huge role in the music that Macklemore and Ryan Lewis has made and that’s why we are so darn proud of her and can’t wait for what’s to come from not only her side project “The Flavr Blue,” but her solo project that she has slightly teased us with.
Check out her interview with Mass Appeal here and her Billboard interview on the red carpet here.

Favorite Style Icon: Alexa Chung
This should really come as no surprise. Since Alexa Chung came into my life, I have always been a fan of her outfit choices. I noticed last year, I selected Taylor Swift, but really – Alexa blew her and everyone else out of the water in 2013. With her new book that we are dying to read and collections of hers popping up all over the place, we are looking forward to what she’ll be bringing to the table in 2014.
