Emma Lee Toyoda Doesn’t Want To Play Your Show

Emma Lee Toyoda Doesn’t Want To Play Your Show

It’s hard not to think about today’s rapidly changing and gentrifying Seattle when listening to the latest single from Emma Lee Toyoda, ‘i don’t wanna play your show.’ The song is raw and punk, like skinning your knee on the concrete floor of a basement house party mosh pit. And then getting up and moshing again anyway. It’s a departure from the more folksy, ethereal, indy sounds of their previous work.

Camp Emerald is a week-long summer camp in Seattle where queer and trans youth ages 14 to 21 learn to play an instrument, join a band and perform in a show on the final night.

Throwing Tomatoes at the Big Gay Void: Who Cares!

Throwing Tomatoes at the Big Gay Void: Who Cares!

Smutty and salacious comic Woody Shticks has baked all his best cookies for a new show Who Cares! and fully expects you to, well, not care. Members of the audience will be given tomatoes they can throw onstage at any time, telling him to skip to the next bit. “It’s like if you’re watching a Netflix thing you can just skip the intro, skip this thing, skip this thing,” Woody explained. “Either audiences skip every piece of the show – and then the show is 20 minutes – or the opposite is true where nobody skips anything because they’re too scared to do it.”
