Anything We Want: Fiona Apple & Blake Mills
- How you know Fiona: her 1996 breakout hit "Criminal," critically adored albums such as When the Pawn..., and a Grammy win for Best Female Rock Performance

- One of the "3 best records of 2012": what Pitchfork thinks of it
- One of the "50 Best Songs of 2012": the praise Rolling Stone gave its single "Hot Knife"
- Fiona's most unlikely romantic partner: Zach Galifinakis in the video Not About Love
- Where her cover of "Pure Imagination" lands: somewhere between beautiful and haunting
- Easiest way to refresh dried contact lenses: listen to her and Johnny Cash cover Cat Stevens' "Father and Son"
- Dawes: the popular L.A. band that Blake Mills used to be in
- Artists that have benefited from his playing: Band of Horses, Weezer, Kid Rock
- Break Mirrors: his debut solo album, of which Radio Free Chicago exclaims: "each track...is stunning and complete"
In the late '80s and early '90s, Seattle was in a state of cultural gridlock. Although it overflowed with art ensembles—a major symphony, ballet, and opera company—they all had to cram into one venue, The Seattle Center Opera House. Giving more room for the arts to breathe, and giving harried event planners a chance to look at a calendar without frustrated tears, Benaroya Hall was erected. Today, the arts fortress takes up an entire city block, with frosted glass that glows like a green lantern at night and artistic flourishes such as a 12-foot-high Robert Rauschenberg mural, 3-ton crystal chandeliers, and the Garden of Remembrance's gracious landscaping. Benaroya also has two concert halls, the 2,479 seat S. Mark Taper Foundation Auditorium and the intimate 536-seat Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall, both of which are designed for acoustic excellence and engineered to shut out external sounds.
