Joss Stone returning to Seattle next month

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Joss Stone, who interviewed with me three or four years ago in advance of her Bumbershoot appearance, is coming back to Seattle for a September 30 concert. The British singer-songwriter is scheduled to perform at The Showbox Market, promoting her just-released album, The Soul Sessions, Vol. 2. My personal favorite, however, is 2004's Mind, Body & Soul. Stone, a friend of the British royal family, attended Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding last summer. For ticket information, go to www.showboxonline.com.

Other new shows announced recently include Sleigh Bells with Refused on August 28 (The Showbox SoDo), Billy Idol on October 26 (The Showbox SoDo), The Sea and Cake on November 2 (The Crocodile), Ben Gibbard with Damien Jurado on November 16 (The Showbox Market), Boz Scaggs on November 15 (Snoqualmie Casino), and Alice Cooper on November 18 (Emerald Queen Casino).

CITY ARTS FEST EXPANDS
The upcoming City Arts Fest (October 17-20) has now expanded to include performances by Mos Def, Devotchka (with Seattle Rock Orchestra), Blind Pilot, Tom Eddy, The Dusty 45s, Fresh Espresso, and about a dozen other artists. The four-day music/arts event will play out at multiple venues and also features appearances by David Byrne & St. Vincent, Ghostland Observatory, Two Door Cinema Club, The Maldives, and Truckasaurus, to name a few. The complete lineup and ticket information is available at www.cityartsfest.com.

RUFUS TYING THE KNOT
Rufus Wainwright is off the market. The accomplished singer-songwriter was expected to marry Jorn Weisbrodt, his partner of several years, in New York this week. The couple are already parents to a one-year-old daughter. Wainwright, who has interviewed with me three times (twice for SGN), will appear in concert at Benaroya Hall on October 1. Visit www.seattlesymphony.org/benaroya for ticket information.

LUNCH BREAK BOOGIE
The 'Out to Lunch' free live music series continues in downtown Seattle with upcoming mini-concerts by The Dunwells on August 24 (Harbor Steps, noon), Vintage Trouble on August 29 (Occidental Square, 5:30 p.m.), LeRoy Bell & His Only Friends on August 31 (Westlake Park, noon), Pokey LaFarge on September 5 (Columbia Center, noon), and Eduardo Mendonca & Show Brazil on September 7 (Freeway Park, noon). All concerts are free of charge!

HOT CHIP TALKS TO SGN
Those who follow electronic music know that Hot Chip isn't the name of a zesty snack item, but instead belongs to a credible dance-pop group with a resume of international smash singles. 'Over and Over,' 'Ready for the Floor,' 'One Life Stand,' and 'Night & Day' have put the Grammy-nominated band, which has released five albums in the past eight years, on the map. Their newest is 2012's In Our Heads, and they're giving it some attention with a North American tour that lands at the Paramount Theatre next month. Prior to even setting foot on Seattle soil, they're speaking with me here in The Music Lounge to preview the September 14 show and provide insight on the new album. Look for our interview with Hot Chip in the September 7 issue of SGN, and go to www.stgpresents.org for ticket information.

Bob Mould speaks to SGN on September 14
Before Nirvana, there was Hüsker Dü. And at the center of this pioneering punk band was Bob Mould. The well-acclaimed musician, who lives openly and proudly as a Gay man, was also a founding member of the rock group Sugar. But his most successful run is that of a solo artist, having released 10 albums since 1989. Mould's newest offering is entitled Silver Age, and he is currently supporting it with a nationwide tour that delivers him to The Showbox Market on September 18. Mould, a self-proclaimed 'bear' who has often performed with the Grammy-winning Foo Fighters, will speak to SGN in advance of his Showbox appearance. Find out what this rock icon has to say about today's pop stars and which song he would dedicate to same-sex couples if Gay marriage passes in November here in Washington state. An interview with the highly regarded Bob Mould is coming up in the September 14 issue of SGN.
