Eclectic Best Bet: David Byrne & St. Vincent

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Thursday, 20 June 2013 11:46 |

Having grown weary of burning (or perhaps Byrne-ing) down houses all over the the '80s new wave block, Talking Heads founder David Byrne has stepped away from smugly strange pop in favor of something more traditional.

Reggae Best Bet: Michael Franti and Spearhead

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Thursday, 20 June 2013 11:43 |

As one of the modern day torch bearers for poetic, politically charged hip-hop and reggae, Michael Franti has long had his work cut out for him, and risen to the challenge with gusto every single time.

Indie Best Bet: The Polyphonic Spree

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Thursday, 20 June 2013 11:41 |

As part of the inaugural Coast West Festival, The Polyphonic Spree perhaps stands out as a bit of an eccentric addition to a lineup that includes Foghat, Chicago and Blue Oyster Cult.

Comedy Best Bet: Daniel Tosh

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Thursday, 23 May 2013 11:53 |

Boy howdy, are you ever in for the ride of your life if you venture out into the ticket line for a Daniel Tosh show. Love him or hate him, I guarantee you won't be bored by him.

Comedy Best Bet: Jerry Seinfeld

Without a doubt, Jerry Seinfeld is one of those comedians whose tireless work ethic and clear-cut commitment to quality comedy have made him a ubiquitous presence in the pop culture sphere.

Rock Best Bet: Rush

Written by Emma Kat Richardson | Thursday, 23 May 2013 11:49 |

Rush has been doing what it does for as long as anyone old enough to possess a driver's license can remember, and then some.

Folk Best Bet: Brandi Carlile
