Alice in Chains playing hometown show in July

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Here's a concert that's going to sell out lightning quick: Alice in Chains at the Paramount Theatre on July 8. The Seattle veterans have sold over 20 million albums worldwide since they broke through during the grunge era in the early '90s with hits such as 'Would,' 'Angry Chair,' 'Rooster,' 'Them Bones,' 'No Excuses and 'Man in the Box.' The last studio recording Alice in Chains put out was 2013's The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here, but it was 1992's Dirt album that catapulted them to success. I've seen them twice in concert and they are excellent live. If any tickets are left, you'll find them at stgpresents.org.

Other recently announced shows include openly Gay singer-songwriter John Grant at The Showbox Market (May 19), jazz quartet The Manhattan Transfer at Dimitriou's Jazz Alley (July 28-31), '90s alternative rock band Belly at The Neptune (August 28), folk icon Art Garfunkel at Tacoma's Pantages Theater (September 24) and 'American Idol' finalist Crystal Bowersox at The Triple Door (October 2). Also, if you missed Judy Collins at Dimitriou's Jazz Alley back in March - all of her shows sold out in a matter of hours - you'll get another chance to see her when she returns to the downtown venue next year, January 12-15.

Mysteriously, the Pet Shop Boys have announced concert dates for Vancouver BC (October 24) and Portland (October 25), though nothing for Seattle. So, you'll have to drive, take the bus or train to see them on their upcoming 'Super Tour.' The duo released a new single and video this week, titled 'Twenty-something,' from their new album Super.

The lineup for the 2016 Timber! Outdoor Music Festival has been unveiled and features lots of local talent, including The Moondoggies, The Maldives, Jesse Sykes & the Sweet Hereafter, Chastity Belt and Seattle Kokon Taiko. Aside from live music, festival attendees can swim or sunbathe at Tolt River Beach, join a marching band by bringing an old instrument and participate in either of REI's sponsored sporting activities, kayaking, biking, and a 5K run. The three-day event is staged in nearby Carnation, Washington. For additional information on Timber!, including tickets and driving directions, log onto timbermusicfest.com.

Radiohead officially ushered out its new album, A Moon Shaped Pool, last weekend, featuring the leadoff single 'Burn the Witch,' and also released a second music video for the track 'Daydreaming,' which is averaging 1 million views per day since debuting May 5 on YouTube. There's still no word on a full tour, but the group is expected to make an announcement soon.

Finally, be sure to put the Volunteer Park Pride Festival on your calendar, happening June 11 at Volunteer Park. The free event will include food trucks, beer garden, artist booths, lawn games and craft/vintage fair, plus live music from Hell's Belles, Selene Vigil et Amicis, Boyfriends and Aeon Flux.
