FAQ:

What exactly are you looking for? Experienced Music writers or people with a background in Music. Passion/Musical Knowledge can subsititute some writing skills. Please have writing samples available.

What do you need me to do? Go to lots of live shows and write previews/reviews as well as review/find new music.  Plus, you’ll get to do a ton of other cool stuff most other outlets would never let you touch. Want creative freedom? This could be the place for the right person. Your writing will be backed by our world-famous concert photog group: The Deadly Viper Photo Squad.

What types of music/shows do you cover? You can take a look at our site for some examples or you can peruse some of our material on KEXP. Indie-Rock, Hip-Hop, Folk, Punk, Etc… If it’s good, we’ll cover it. We just need more help covering all of it! Our musical pallette is what sets us apart. Neumo’s, Chop Suey, and Crocodile happen to be our sweet spot locally, but we also cover the larger shows too.

What does this gig pay? If you’re asking, I probably can’t afford you. Unless of course you consider “Wicked Indie-Cred” a form of payment. How about never paying for music or shows again and being part of a kick ass local outlet like Click & Dagger? It’s all about exposure.

Do I have to be in Seattle? We need local people, but we are also looking for National and International writers! We would love to have some coverage in other cities – especially Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York. If your’re in a live music hot-spot and want to help out, we’d love to hear from you!

What if I’m not a writer? Trust us, there are still other ways that you can help behind the scenes. Drop us a line and let’s chat!

  1. Hey,
    I can’t send you a direct message until you start following me but you will have it from this comment. I’m an avid music follower from Chicago and go to many shows. I’d love to hear back from you if you are still looking.
