Unlikely rock ‘n’ roll photographer Jini Dellaccio visualized punk before it had a name, captured grunge before the hype, and embodied indie before it was cool. In the early 1960s, Jini forged a career photographing iconic Northwest bands like The Wailers and The Sonics, setting the stage for modern portrait photographers like Annie Leibovitz. In Karen Whitehead’s upcoming film, Her Aim Is True, the filmmaker examines Jini’s courageous and convention-defying life, focusing on her work and the close bonds she formed with her subjects. Tomorrow, join the production team, including Whitehead, at the Marriott SpringHill Suites in Downtown Seattle, from 5:30 – 8:00 pm, for a chance to see selected clips from the film. For more information or to RSVP, e-mail the production at, or Marriott SpringHill Suites General Manager Aaron Olson at Also check out this great article on Her Aim Is True from back in March, published by The News Tribune.

SXSW released the complete official list of bands headed to this year’s music conference. Held annually in the streets and bars of Austin, Texas, SXSW brings the entire industry together into one place for five plus packed days of drinking, socializing and networking. A few of Seattle’s local brothers and sisters will be in attendance, among them J. Tillman, Grand Archives, and the newly signed Telekinesis! A close look also finds that Seattle rock legends the Sonics will also be taking the stage once again for this year’s conference.
