Our friend and colleague Travis Hay has taken in on the chin in recent years. After freelancing for the P-I forEVER, he finally scored a regular column. Then the P-I went through some changes, and away the column went. Then the daily newspaper he was writing for in eastern Washington went through some changes, and away the paycheck went.
What he had--and what could not be taken away--was his music blog, Ear Candy, peppered with reported bits and reviews of Seattle music. Then up came a multinational company with a cease-and-desist letter. There goes "Ear Candy."For the last two years, Hay has been building a "new" music blog, Guerrilla Candy. Tonight at the High Dive, Hay is celebrating the official grand opening of the blog, and he's lined up one hell of a bill: My Goodness, one of our favorites (natch), Hounds of the Wild Hunt, Hot Bodies in Motion, and Hobosexual will be performing at a party hosted by Brent Amaker.
Tickets are $10. The show starts at 9 p.m. And Travis loves a good Sex on the Beach.
