Phillip Phillips interviewing next week with Seattle Gay News

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Find something to fan yourself with because things are heating up next week, thanks to Phillip Phillips. The eleventh season champion of 'American Idol' is headed to the Emerald City for a performance at Woodland Park Zoo on July 17, but he's talking to Seattle Gay News first. The Georgia native has released two albums since winning the singing competition, 2012's The World from the Side of the Moon and 2014's Behind the Light, scoring a huge hit with the single 'Home' along the way, used in a series of TV commercials that aired in the US, including Walmart, Mazda, Vizio, American Family Insurance and Coldwell Banker, but also for a Tim Horton ad in Canada and Vox in the UK. Phillips is sharing the bill of his current '2016 Summer Tour' with fellow singer-songwriter Matt Nathanson; opening the show for both will be A Great Big World. The Woodland Park Zoo concert is sold out.



The only major new concert to announce is the EDM festival called Magnifique, taking place September 17 at The Gorge Amphitheatre. Kaskade is the headliner with scheduled DJ sets also scheduled from Chromeo, Duke Damont, Netsky, mija, Giraffage, Branchez and Justin Hartinger. The event, running from 2pm to 1:30am, is open to those 18+ and valid ID is required for entry. Tickets go on sale July 9 (10am) at all Ticketmaster locations, or online at ticketmaster.com.



Ready to feel old? True Blue, one of the best selling albums of all time, turned the big 3-0 last week. The third studio recording by Madonna was released on June 30, 1986 and has since sold an estimated 25 million copies worldwide and certified 7x-platinum by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America), having sold 7 million units here in the US. Five mega-hit singles were released from the album, including 'Papa Don't Preach,' 'Live to Tell,' 'La Isla Bonita,' 'Open Your Heart' and the title cut. True Blue spent 82 weeks on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart, five of them consecutively at #1 and Madonna was bestowed the Video Vanguard Award at the 1986 MTV Video Music Awards.

The lineup for Earshot Jazz's The Second Century Series has been unveiled. The four-concert event already kicked off July 7 with a performance by Inversion Therapy and Gregg Belisle-Chi, but continues July 14 with a show by Seattle quartet The Arsonists, featuring Max Holmberg (drums), Mat Muntz (bass), Julian Garvue (piano) and Xavier Del Castillo (tenor saxophonist); they'll be joined by Overplay with Sister Nader, a trio consisting of Jeremy Shaskus (tenor saxophonist), Randy Doak (drums) and clarinetist Sister Nader. Next up is ACMD and Hunter Gather on July 21; the former is a collaborative project of saxophonist Ivan Arteaga and digital artist Marcin Pazkowski that regularly includes special guests baritone saxophonist Greg Sinibaldi and dancer Mariah Davis. The final concert features A Consecutive Sequence, a duo formed by Bryan Lineberry (saxophone) and Dio Jean-Baptiste (drums), and Hound Dog Taylor's Hand, a three-piece featuring guitarist Jeffery Taylor, contrabass player John Seman and drummer Mark Ostrowski on July 28. Each show will be staged at the Chapel Performance Space, in Wallingford, with tickets offered on a sliding scale ($5-$15 suggested donation) at earshot.org, or call (206) 547-6763.



Finally, remember that the West Seattle Summer Fest is happening this weekend, July 8 through 10, with musical performances by The Dusty 45s, Tacocat, Grace Love & the True Loves, Chastity Belt, Hobosexual, The Hollers, Pillar Point, Acapulco Lips, Feather Bones and DJ MF Cake, to name a few. The event is free and all ages are welcome. For more information and directions, go to wsjunction.org.
