Chief O’Brien At Work

“Becoming Santa”

If you want to stream a quirky/bizarre documentary over the Holiday, I recommend taking a peak at Becoming Santa. The trailer doesn’t do it justice, but it’s an entertaining glimpse at the people who play Santa and why they do it.

It’s currently available to stream on Netflix and Hulu

The West on The Mixtape

The West stopped by KIRO RADIO studios to record an interview on The Mixtape with Sean De Tore. The interview starts around 3:45.

Mixtape with Sean De Tore

The West recorded a podcast today at KIRO RADIO studios for the Mixtape with Sean De Tore. Adrienne definitely said, “Dat ass!” Which, it turns out, you can say on a podcast. It’ll be available online this week and I’ll share the link once it’s up.

The Sunset

“The West were insanely good last night. No, I mean crazy good. I saw them at the first of the year at the Croc, but last nights show blew that one away. I might have to say this was my favorite local show of the year.” –Aaron Brown, AB Seattle
