Crystal Castles gets an upgrade

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

The Toronto-based duo Crystal Castles - Alice Glass and Ethan Kath - return to Seattle on April 30 for a performance at the Moore Theatre, an upgraded venue from The Showbox SoDo, site of their previous Seattle shows. The pair, who combine garage-rock sounds with electronic-synth backgrounds and distorted vocals, have been on fire since releasing their self-titled debut in 2008. They've put out two more albums since then, including last year's well-received III. Crystal Castles will be touring much of 2013 with headlining shows, major festival appearances, and select dates with Depeche Mode. Glass is my special guest in 'The Music Lounge' next week, and she'll set up the Moore Theatre show for us and reveal what her favorite Gay bar is back home in Toronto. Grab a copy of SGN on April 26 and read all about it.

SING ONE FOR US, PHIL!
The initial lineup for this summer's Marymoor Park Concert Series has been unveiled. Damien 'Jr. Gong' Marley & Stephen Marley featuring the Ghetto Youths Crew will kick things off June 19, followed by Pink Martini with China Forbes on August 4. KNDD 107.7 The End's 'Summer Camp' (artists TBA) happens on August 10, and rounding out the schedule are Daryl Hall & John Oates on August 13, Steely Dan on August 15, Willie Nelson & Family on August 23, Furthur featuring Phil Lesh and Bob Weir (of Grateful Dead fame) on September 24, and The Lumineers on a date to be determined. All shows take place outdoors in the Redmond park, about a 15-minute drive from downtown Seattle.

IS SHE STILL A BELIEBER?
TV star-turned-singer Selena Gomez has scheduled a Seattle date on her upcoming tour. Honestly, I know only one song of hers, but apparently she's big enough to play Key Arena. Perhaps more famously recognized as Justin Bieber's former arm candy, Gomez will be here on November 12 with her band The Scene. Tickets go on sale April 20.

WELCOME BACK, VIENNA
Another new show to announce is singer-songwriter Vienna Teng on November 20. The Stanford alum, who interviewed several years ago with SGN, is set to appear at The Neptune. She hasn't released any new material since 2009's Inland Territory, partly because she's been busy getting her MBA at the University of Michigan. Tickets are on sale now, including a $50 pass that gets you sound-check access and a meet-and-greet with the artist.

YOU SNOOZE, YOU LOSE
These concerts are now sold out: Flosstradamus on April 26 (Neumos), Marina and the Diamonds on May 2 (The Showbox SoDo), Sara Bareilles on May 11 (The Showbox Market), Of Monsters and Men on May 14 (Paramount Theatre), MGMT on May 15 (The Showbox SoDo), and all three days of the Watershed Festival on August 2-4 (The Gorge Amphitheatre).

Finally, local superstars Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, who performed brilliantly on the otherwise stupid MTV Movie Awards last week, have released the video for their new single 'Can't Hold Us,' featuring great Seattle scenery. It can be seen now on YouTube. Macklemore interviewed with SGN in December.
