The End is Over – My First Album Art!

Five years ago we said goodbye to The Senate.¬†What was intended on a one time¬†Senate reunion after 5 years, sold out The Tractor in a couple days, and the guys ended up turning it into a mini reunion, summer tour and all! What fans also didn’t know was the band was planning on releasing another …

Austin Jenckes and Polecat @ The Crocodile

Once upon I time, I fell in love with a voice at a coffeeshop in college. Naturally, we became friends and shared many laughs, gelato, and long talks. But I graduated and left Bellingham and just as he was emerging into the Seattle music scene a few years later, I scampered off onto a world …

I stumbled across them one night at The Tractor Tavern, and have been looking forward to the next time our paths cross. Their energy is riveting, their music is wonderfully unique, and their time humorous comments …
