Cornish cancels performances as dancer encounters visa troubles

By Michael Upchurch/ Seattle Times arts writer

Trouble at the U.S.-Canadian border again for a traveling artist wanting to share his expertise. Canadian dancer Yannick Matthon, one of the stars of Crystal Pite’s troupe Kidd Pivot, was scheduled to start rehearsals of excerpts from Pite’s brilliant “Dark Matters” for the Cornish Dance Theater Fall 2014 Concert. He was also slated to present a lecture/demonstration about Pite’s choreography on Sept. 19.

Kube 93 announces Summer Jam lineup — guess who’s hosting?

If you guessed Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, well, you’re right, but there’s no special prize since they’re ubiquitous lately. It’s unclear, however, if the duo will actually be playing the June 8 event at the Gorge, but those who will include T.I., Trey Songz, 2 Chainz, Wale and J. Cole. Tickets  go on-sale on Saturday,…

So, this is also what Austin is like during SXSW. I have no idea what that light-up structure is these people are dancing on, but it’s in some kind of public square. This was 3 o’clock in the morning, and I also have no clue where this music was even coming from.

Pony Up!

Man, Pony Time is a fun band to see live—especially in a cramped, dank barroom in Texas. According to their website, the Seattle band’s two members, Luke Beetham and Stacy Peck were “drawn together by almost zero common musical interests and a shared love of South Park, this was a band that couldn’t fail.” Well, they rocked…

Mary Lambert in the afternoon

Though at the moment she’s best known for guesting on Macklemore’s “Same Love,” Mary Lambert took a break from appearing with everyone’s favorite white rapper to do a set of her own. “I’ve always wanted to come to SXSW,” the Cornish College grad told the crowd in Austin’s Brush Square Park. “I ever since I saw…

Hey Marseilles, and notes on height and bone structure

Austin is a wonderland of well-turned-out guys of the lanky “I’m not trying to be a cool as I look” sort. But even among these, the phalanx of handsome rockers that is Hey Marseilles stands out. They assured me there is no height requirement to be in the band—and offered their drummer (who is, I’d say,…

The Funk Soul Other: Allen Stone at SXSW

I dropped by Maggie Mae’s on Austin’s 6th Street (aka, at 1 a.m., the Lone Star Gomorrah) to see Allen Stone. From Chewelah, Wa., by way of Seattle, Stone has an energetic, soulful sound that’s positive without being smarmy. After a brutal stretch of sound checking, he took the stage, and even with the feedbacking…
