CHRIS CORNELL HONORED WITH STATUE AT SEATTLE’S MUSEUM OF POP CULTURE
Chilly temperatures and light rainfall did not deter hundreds of people from gathering at the Museum of Pop Culture (formerly known as the Experience Music Project) in Seattle Center to pay tribute to Chris Cornell. “The clouds tonight somehow feel right for an artist who brought us so much dark, beautiful music,” said Jasen Emmons, MoPop’s artistic director, in his opening remarks. In a later speech, Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan referenced the changes in Seattle since Cornell’s youth, but added that the new buildings, booming tech economy, and coffee shops don’t represent the soul of Seattle. “The soul of Seattle is what Chris Cornell knew,” Durkan said. “He pulled from places within himself that were amazing and poured it into us.”

TUESDAY TUNES – “CERTAINTY” BY SLOUCHER
Today’s tune is a catchy number from Seattle’s own Sloucher. Don’t let the band’s name fool you; it’s evident from the first listen that these guys put a lot of heart into their music. “Certainty”

TUESDAY TUNES – “26” BY PARAMORE
Today’s tune comes from Paramore’s latest album, After Laughter. While the album is a departure from the band’s established sound, trading pop-punk for an 80s new wave-influenced sound, “26” is a moment of calm amidst

Today’s tune comes from Dutch band Bettie Serveert. “Brother (in Loins)” appears on the band’s 2016 album, Damaged Good. The band recently released a music video to accompany “Brother” and I love its 1980s feel. The

TUESDAY TUNES – “THE SOUND” BY NOAH GUNDERSEN
Tuesday Tunes is back and this week, I’m featuring the newest single from Noah Gundersen, “The Sound.” Released yesterday with a lyric video, the song marks a change in direction for the Seattle-based singer-songwriter as he adopts a heavier electric sound. The new sound is not a complete surprise, though, as Gundersen’s full-band project Young in the City leans in this direction, as did some songs on his last solo album, _Carry the Ghost_.

RISE ABOVE IT: JON FOREMAN’S LYRICS AND MY FIGHT AGAINST FEAR
“HOW THIS WORKS IS THAT IT’S LIKE BUSKING, EXCEPT THERE’S NO MONEY INVOLVED.”
Jon Foreman’s solo aftershow on the steps of Grace Cathedral. San Francisco, CA – July 9, 2015 From the front steps of Grace Cathedral, Jon Foreman addressed the fans gathered to see his aftershow performance. Minutes earlier at The Masonic, a venue just steps away from the cathedral, Foreman’s band Switchfoot kicked off the second leg of the _Tour de Compadres_ along with Needtobreathe, Colony House, and Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors. Foreman began playing “Only Hope,” and I was overcome with emotion as two realizations hit me: one, that I was in California, and two, that I was finally attending one of Foreman’s famous aftershows. As I sang softly along with the crowd, I hardly noticed the chilly air and occasional raindrops; a welcome change from the crushing humidity of Virginia.
