Originally from San Francisco, CA, Victoria lives in Seattle, WA, and completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography at Seattle University. Her passion is making live music look as great as it sounds. She is the sole Seattle contributor for Live Music Blog, and her work has been featured in Seattle Music Insider, The Stranger, and Seattle Weekly. Her 2012 BFA thesis, "Seattle DIY: Live Music," has been displayed at various venues in the Seattle area. For a behind the scenes look at music, she shoots in-studio performances at local radio station KEXP.
Like observing a rainbow, or the site-specific sculpture art of the 1970s, Animal Collective’s music is intrinsically subjective, defined by the unique perspective of each listener. The band's compositions are so intensely layered that each observer grasps hold of something different in the fray—perhaps it's the pounding drums, or the wild, unhinged harmonies, or the orchestra of minute samples...
Psyche-rockers Unknown Mortal Orchestra from Portland, Oregon and Auckland, New Zealand hosted an intimate show at Barboza last month. The band were on tour promoting their upcoming album, Multi-Love, which was released on May 26th.

Nothing beats that first festival of the season...
By Victoria Holt and Bryan Anton In preparation for this year's Sasquatch! Music Festival, we decided to skip telling you about the obvious sets (Kendrick Lamar, St. Vincent, Modest Mouse, Hot Chip, Tame Impala, Little Dragon, Lana Del Rey, Father John Misty, etc.) and focus on some small to mid-sized acts. You should still catch those big names, but no...
Last Tuesday night at the Paramount Theater in Seattle, WA, Belle & Sebastian proved that they're just as relevant now as they were in the '90s. After 20 years and 9 albums, they still rock classics like "I'm a Cuckoo" and "The Boy With The Arab Strap" like they were released yesterday. The latter came at the end of...
While our crew is at Jazz Fest this weekend celebrating all things New Orleans (+ Phish), Victoria Holt continues her Coachella coverage from weekend two and rounds up her Top 10 moments of the weekend. Even more still to come from her... --Editor 1. HAIM’s Facial Expressions (Friday, Outdoor Stage): Seriously, if you haven’t seen the faces HAIM make when...

Thursday night as I passed through the Black Lodge’s unmarked, warehouse doors, I took a peek at the sheet of bands for the night, and overheard someone say, “It’s gonna be psychedelic!” Before hearing that, I might have thought of the lineup as primarily dark, punk influenced, thought provoking rock (except perhaps Bad Blood, who add a party vibe...
