Troye Sivan to interview with SGN on January 29

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

He came out to his family when he was 15. Exactly three years later, on August 7, 2013, he came out publicly to his fans via YouTube and was praised for his brave announcement. Okay, so who is he? He's an Australian singer-songwriter who recorded a big hit last year with Zedd called 'Papercut.' On his own, his sophomore album Blue Neighbourhood has already produced three singles, 'Wild,' 'Talk Me Down,' and 'Youth.' But my personal favorite is 'Happy Little Pill' from his debut recording, TRXYE. Sivan will perform February 4 at The Showbox SoDo, as part of a North American tour that also includes concerts in Denver, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, and Miami. The Emerald City is the second date on his itinerary and before coming here the South African-born performer (his family moved to Australia when he was 2 years old) will be my guest in The Music Lounge. Look for the interview with Troye Sivan in the SGN on January 29. By the way, the Seattle concert is already sold out.

The lineup for this year's Sasquatch Music Festival was unveiled this week with a stellar list of artists scheduled to perform, including The Cure, Florence + the Machine, Alabama Shakes, Major Lazer, Sufjan Stevens, Allen Stone, Grimes, M83, Caribou, A$AP Rocky, Purity Ring, Andra Day, Frightened Rabbit, Big Grams (Big Boi + Phantogram), Kurt Vile, and nearly three dozen additional acts. In addition to musicians, a number of comedians will appear as well at the three-day event, taking place May 27 through 30 at The Gorge, such as Natasha Legero, Todd Barry, Moshe Kasher, and The Lucas Bros, to name a few. Tickets for the 2016 Sasquatch Music Festival went on sale Tuesday, January 12 at SasquatchFestival.com. It sells out every summer and I anticipate a repeat, so buy your tickets in advance.

Among the new shows announced this week are Tinashe, who will play The Showbox SoDo on April 8, and openly Gay rocker Bob Mould, who appears at The Showbox Market on May 10; he's interviewed twice with Seattle Gay News. Also coming to town are two Grammy nominees for Best New Artist, Courtney Barnett on April 21 (Moore Theatre) and Tori Kelly on May 16 (Paramount Theatre). There's more: Lyle Lovett on March 22 (Pantages Theater, Tacoma), A Great Big World on March 26 (The Crocodile), and Parachute on April 16 (The Neptune).

The 2016 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees are Cheap Trick, Chicago, Deep Purple, N.W.A, and Steve Miller. Appearing on the ballot, though rejected by voters, was Janet Jackson, who will have another shot in 2017. This year's inductees will be honored with a ceremony on April 8 at the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn, which will be televised a few weeks later on HBO.

Finally, the DJ group Major Lazer, fronted by Diplo, will be the first American music act to play in Cuba since relations between the U.S. and the Caribbean island nation have eased. They will perform March 6 at Tribuna Jose Marti. Diplo is nominated for Producer of the Year at this year's Grammys.
