Seattle Times – High fives: the best concerts of 2015

Seattle Times
High fives: the best concerts of 2015

Our music writers were all over the Northwest in 2015, from dive bars to dance clubs to international jazz festivals. Eight of them look back on the year and choose their favorite shows.

By Seattle Times staff
The Seattle Times

As usual, our music critics look back at the year’s live concerts and list five they thought were tops. Also as usual, their lists reveal tastes that splay so wildly, from doom metal to roots rock to electronica to pop — and a music scene that is so marvelously diverse — that no single show turns up on two lists. (I was tempted to break this streak of incongruence by including Taylor Swift’s wow-prompting pop bash at CenturyLink Field but, in the end, more age-appropriate genres won out.) As you can see from these lists, 2015 was a rich and wonderful year in music, and it looks like we’re already headed into another one. Read More

Bette Midler, Margaret South, and Bonnie Bruckheimer

Long before Bette Midler sang her way through “Beaches” or Sigourney Weaver blasted monsters in “Aliens,” they and their peers were paying their dues in tiny screen roles True, there is the occasional star who began his or her film career on top, such as Warren Beatty and Kathleen Turner, but most actors have had to claw their way up.

There’s nothing wrong with starting at the bottom In fact, most of us have done just that The difference here is that an actor’s beginnings are a matter of public record, something we can dig up and closely examine The actor’s first screen smile, kiss and sometimes appearance in the buff are often available for the price of a video rental Read More

BetteBack August 7, 1993: Midler Options Life Stories Of Lainie Kazan And Record Mogul Florence Greenberg

“It’s a hard life. It is a very hard life. Especially If you’re not in the big, big, big, BIG time. If you just meander along, it’s really hard,” said Bette Midler, expounding on the rigors of show biz.”

Fans of Lainie Kazan might remember that, back in the ’70s, the actress/singer’s career wasn’t going so great. Kazan – a voluptuous stunner – got a highpowered start as Barbra Streisand’s “Funny Girl” understudy in 1965, and from there went on to a hot nightclub career. But as the decade faded, so did Lainie. It was during this somewhat fallow period that Lainle accepted an offer from Playboy to run two of Its
night spots. (She also appeared nude in the magazine itself – one of the publication’s more memorable photo essays.) Over a period of four years, Lainle single-handedly booked rooms, answered phones, performed, ordered the food and greeted patrons at Lalnle’s Room West (in LA) and Lainie’s Room East (in New York City). She was a smashing success. Read More

(From her best-selling book, “The Saga of Baby Divine”)

It’s the point of your view that decides what you see.
One man’s flop is another man’s hit.
From manners to movies, the picture keeps changing,
Depending upon where you sit.
(From her best-selling book, “The Saga of Baby Divine”)
