Graffiti6 interview set for January 20

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

High on my list of men whose sweat I'd lick off for free is Jamie Scott. One half of British pop duo Graffiti6, the young and too-cute musician is soon headed to this caffeinated neck of the woods. The pair (the other half is Tommy D) will open for rock band Augustana at The Crocodile on January 21, and Scott is interviewing with me here in The Music Lounge the day before. Graffiti6 have opened for Kelly Clarkson and Alicia Keys, in addition to having their music played on TV shows like One Tree Hill ('Stone in My Heart') and Grey's Anatomy ('Stare Into the Sun'). Grab a copy of Seattle Gay News on January 20 to get more familiar - and I know you want to - with Jamie Scott of Graffiti6.

Justin Timberlake as Elton John? Yes. The singer-turned-actor is strongly considering portraying the Gay icon in a feature biopic, written by Lee Hall (War Horse, Billy Elliott). J.T. (incidentally, Sir Elton's first choice to play him - why not Tom Hardy?) is expected to officially announce his decision on whether he'll get his crocodile rock on or not.

Jules de Martino and Katie White are coming back to Seattle, but you recognize them better as The Ting Tings. Known for their worldwide hit 'That's Not My Name,' the Grammy-nominated duo returns to the Emerald City for a March 28 appearance at The Showbox Market. The Ting Tings are set to release a new album stateside in early March, and already two possible singles have emerged from it, 'Silence' and 'Hang It Up.'

Another just-announced concert is Yann Tiersen, the man behind that beautiful Amelie film soundtrack, who'll play at The Showbox Market on May 8. Although I love the Frenchman's sound on record, his live performance at Neumos a few years ago was horrible - he played not one song from Amelie or any other film score, and instead delivered an ear-splitting set of bad rock tunes. Go at your own risk.

Meanwhile, pop-rock outfit The Fray ('How to Save a Life,' 'Over My Head') return to the Paramount Theatre next month. Don't laugh, but I actually don't mind these guys. They play it safe with mid-tempo radio hit after mid-tempo radio hit, and I'm sure the band's newest album Scars & Stories has its share, though they do it well and you can't fault them for that. The Fray, who were scheduled to open for U2 on their initial 2010 date (which was canceled), perform February 28 here in Seattle.

Madonna and Kylie together? Believe it. The two international pop divas, one of them far more successful than the other, will appear on the same stage for a joint performance. Kylie Minogue is celebrating 25 years in the recording industry and has asked her longtime inspiration to sing with her at an undisclosed place and time. It isn't clear whether they'll appear on a TV special or on a live stage. What is clear is that Madonna is being very generous.

Finally, a belated farewell to Cesaria Evora. The world music artist from Cape Verde, who gained a following with her albums Cafe Atlantico and Miss Perfumado, even attracting the interest of Madonna and other top celebrities, passed away on December 17 at the age of 70. We'll greatly miss you, mama.
