The beat goes on

The guys in Beat Connection are always thinking about their next step. The Seattle-based four-piece is in between albums, but they’ve remained busy on the live circuit.

Medical pot shop deals with effects of robbery

Paul Lugo stands with a customer in the lobby of his medical marijuana dispensary. The room is brightly lit, the windows painted with sunshine and colorful flowers. Though the scene outside the Herbal Connection seems cheery, there’s a dark mood inside. Though Lugo said he’s normally in the business of helping customers, on Tuesday the customer was offering him help: free security in the wake of an armed robbery that left employees shaken and Lugo in tears.

Beat Connection, Cursive land at A Club this week

A pair of esoteric indie bands are bringing equally obscure brands of pop to A Club this weekend. Tonight’s show with The Beat Connection leans more on dreamy ambience compared to the scathing grit of Sunday’s concert with Cursive.
