Jimi Hendrix' 75th birthday celebration at Museum of Pop Culture on November 25

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Happy Birthday, Jimi Hendrix! The rock legend would have been 75 years old this weekend, so the Museum of Pop Culture (aka MoPOP, formerly Experience Music Project) is throwing him a hometown b-day party, although it's really intended for fans. The single day event on November 25 will include screenings of rare documentary footage, oral histories and films of some of Hendrix's most memorable performances on the museum's floor-to-ceiling Sky Church screen that takes up an entire wall. Festivities will also include spotlight tours of MoPOP's exhibition 'Wild Blue Angel: Hendrix Abroad,' plus additional artifacts from the museum's collection will be on view, including the white Fender Stratocaster he played at Woodstock in 1969 and the kimono he wore at the Monterey Pop Festival. And, you can't have a birthday party without cake! So yes, guests are invited to eat birthday cake, as well. This special event is free with regular admission to the museum on Saturday. For more information, go to www.MoPOP.org.

There are three big shows to announce this week, the first being Seattle's own Brandi Carlile at the Moore Theatre for back-to-back nights, March 30 and 31. The Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter will introduce fans to music from her new album By the Way, I Forgive You, which is set for a February 16 release. For tickets, visit www.stgpresents.org. The second is country queen Miranda Lambert at the Tacoma Dome on February 1, promoting songs from last year's stellar album The Weight of These Wings. For tickets, log onto www.LiveNation.com. The third is American Idol champ Phillip Phillips, who interviewed with Seattle Gay News a few years ago, at The Neptune on March 16. The 26 year-old is putting out a new album on January 19 titled Collateral. For tickets, go to www.stgpresents.org

Here are more upcoming shows to announce to you, starting with '80s new wave act Howard Jones at Benaroya Hall on January 24; pop singer Kimbra (from Gotye's single 'Somebody That I Used to Know') at Neumos on February 11; Mexican-American rock band Los Lobos at The Triple Door on February 16-18; Hawaiian ukulele specialist Jake Shimabukuro at Benaroya Hall on February 19; the Joey Alexander Trio, led by the talented teenage jazz phenom Joey Alexander, at Dimitriou's Jazz Alley on February 22-25; Grammy-winning folk-bluegrass ensemble Steep Canyon Players at The Neptune on March 4; World Music icon Anjelique Kidjo at Benaroya Hall on May 2; and the musical-comedy duo Steve Martin and Martin Short at the Paramount Theatre on July 7 for two shows (4pm and 8pm).

Although the lineup has yet to be unveiled, I can already tell you the dates for next year's Sasquatch Festival. The Memorial Day weekend bash featuring bands and artists performing on an outdoor stage with the backdrop of the Columbia Basin is scheduled to take place on May 25-27, 2018. You can purchase three-day passes for just $295 on Black Friday exclusively at www.sasquatchfestival.com. The event, featuring live music, comedians and camping facilities for overnight guests, will once again take place at the Gorge Amphitheater, two hours from Seattle near the town of Ellensburg, Washington.

What were the best albums and singles of 2017? The hottest artists of the year? The most incredible concerts we saw these past twelve months? And, what totally made our ears bleed from January to December? Find out in three weeks when we reveal our picks for the Best of Music 2017. This was a better overall year for music than 2016, which makes our job a bit tougher to choose the extraordinary from the ordinary. Grab a copy of the SGN on December 15 and look to see what we selected as the Best of Music 2017.

Finally, in what has become a common and unfortunate close to my column as of recent, another music star has died recently. David Cassidy, who many people grew up watching and admiring, including my older sisters, on the TV series 'The Partridge Family,' died on November 21 at the age of 67. Besides his television success, Cassidy was also a huge '70s teen idol and enjoyed a brief music career.
