After their set this afternoon, blues rock duo My Goodness were signing autographs in a merch booth. “I’ve never done this kind of thing before,” admitted drummer Ethan Jacobsen about signing autographs for kids. Asked if he had gotten anything signed, he says that he met B.B. King when he was a kid and got his […]
Charles Bradley can get down, and the soul veteran got during an on-air performance on the intimate KEXP stage today!

In their back pocket, they keep drummer Faustine Hudson, who might not only be the best female drummer in Seattle, but she’s pretty much the best female drummer I’ve EVER seen. I had hoped to catch up with Hudson to pick […]
