Amy Blaschke

A fixture in the Seattle music scene for ages – via her solo career, her stint in Whalebones, and her moody Night Canopy collaboration with former Pretty Girls Make Graves drummer Nick Dewitt – ethereal folk songbird Amy Blaschke packed her bags and left for Los Angeles a couple of years ago. Fortunately, she continues to make music in various guises and configurations, and every now and then she makes it back up to these parts for a gig. We’re the better for it, because Blaschke’s voice – honeyed and soulful, sometimes commanding and other times translucent – is easy to miss hearing regularly, especially when draped over some rudimentary acoustic guitar or a simple piano melody. She wowed the crowd at the Skylark in West Seattle last fall, and we look forward to just as much magic tonight. MICHAEL ALAN GOLDBERG
