Star Anna & The Laughing Dogs at the Admiral Theater and on KEXP
The only people who think West Seattle isn’t a place to go for entertainment are people who haven’t been to West Seattle lately. On Saturday, May 9, Star Anna & The Laughing Dogs prove just that when they take to the stage of the historic Admiral Theater.
“Recently named by Sound Magazine as one of the up and coming women in music, Star Anna is a mix of rock and Americana. She walks the line between dark and light. Comparable to Lucinda Williams, Neko Case, Brandi Carlile, Tom Petty.”
If you can’t make it to the show, Star Anna will be doing a live studio performance on radio station KEXP 90.3 at 3:00 pm on Friday, May 7. Reading what KEXP’s Don Yates had to say ought to convince you to tune in.
“Ellensburg’s Star Anna debuted last year with Crooked Path, a promising album of rootsy alt-country, and while the roots influence is still there on her 2nd album [The Only Thing That Matters], Star and her band have cranked up the electricity, giving her emotionally scarred songs an additional rock â€˜n’ roll punch. Her throaty, aching vocals sound better than ever, and the band earns their co-billing with tight, tough-sounding accompaniment. Crooked Path was a great beginning, but this one packs a mightier wallop”.
