This week is concert-heavy for Seattle

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

This is the busiest week in music for Seattle, thus far, in 2014 with shows happening everywhere.

Of course, Memorial Day weekend marks the Northwest's premiere music festival, Sasquatch, taking place at The Gorge Amphitheatre. M.I.A., Outkast, Foster the People, Queens of the Stone Age, The National, Big Freedia, Neko Case and Cut Copy are just some of the acts performing at the three-day event on May 23-25. Seattle Gay News will have a writer and photographer on-site to cover all the action. Also this weekend, Northwest Folklife Festival will be hosting musicians jamming all day and all night at Seattle Center. Go to www.nwfolklife.org for a complete guide.

Lana Del Rey will appear in her first Seattle concert on May 27, which is already sold out, at WaMu Theater with a set-list expected to include 'West Coast,' 'Summertime Sadness' and 'Born to Die.' Then, the 'Pokerface' diva herself, Lady GaGa, performs the next evening at Key Arena, her first time since 2009 that she'll play a full concert in the Emerald City. Multiple Grammy winner Lionel Richie arrives three days later on May 31 for a show at Key Arena, where he'll delight the crowd with favorites like 'Dancing on the Ceiling,' 'All Night Long,' 'You Are,' 'Easy,' 'Sail On' and 'Hello.' Tickets are still available for Richie's concert at Ticketmaster.

The second of Animal Collective's DJ sets at Neumos on May 29 is sold out. There are still tickets for the May 28 show, but it's likely to sell out as well, so buy them soon at www.neumos.com.

The lineup for the Capitol Hill Block Party (July 25-27) was recently revealed and includes Spoon, A$AP Rocky, Chromeo, Matt and Kim, The War on Drugs, Odesza, A$AP Ferg, Beat Connection, Star Slinger, Budos Band, Tanlines, Dum Dum Girls, Robert Delong and many more acts that will converge inside a multi-block outdoor area by E. Pike St. and Broadway. Three-day passes for $125 or VIP packages for $250 are available now at www.capitolhillblockparty.com, where you'll also find a complete roster of artists performing at the street festival.

Fun in the sun? Think: road trip to The Gorge Amphitheatre for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. The veteran rock band has announced a date at the scenic venue on August 15 with special guest Steve Winwood. I've seen them five times, at least, and every time it's been a party with beach balls tossed around and happy people singing all the words to the group's hits, from 'Learning to Fly' to 'The Waiting' to 'Free Falling.' But they're also expected to play fresh material from a new album, Hypnotic Eye, set for a July 29 release. Tickets will go on sale May 31, 10 a.m., at Ticketmaster.

Did you know Jinkx Monsoon has a new album out? It's so true. Last season's winner of RuPaul's Drag Race (by the way, congrats to this season's winner, Bianco Del Rio!) has released her first recording, The Inevitable Album, featuring the leadoff single 'Coffee and Wine.' The accompanying music video has been uploaded to YouTube. I don't have immediate information on performance dates for Seattle, but I'd assume a local show is in the works. The Inevitable Album is in stores now.
