Club and venue level life in Seattle's music community. Encouraging attending (and playing) shows, reviewing and supporting local bands, and the basic errata of life amidst the live music venues: drink tickets, earplugs, wrist stamps, borrowed speaker cables, blown monitors, broken strings, intermittently starting vans... you know, the good stuff.
It all started when a community-minded entrepreneur by the name of Jackson Klemmer had the innovative idea to replace every single one of the area’s longtime residents with affluent twentysomethings. The rest, as they say, is history.
I think this guy’s involved in the recent developments on Capitol Hill, too. You’ve got to shut down the music venues and practice spaces to put up condos for the hip, wealthy folks who want to live near where the music scene is… er, used to be…
The name of the militant Islamic group ISIS is probably one of the most reviled names in the country at the moment. It is also the name of a defunct post-metal rock band with the same name that is getting “off color comments” on its Facebook page.
You know, you think you’re just doing your ancient-polytheistic-rock-band-naming-thang, like so many others, and then this happens… If they’d gone with Set, they’d be fine. Un-googlable, sure, but still…
This is definitely makes a trip south worthwhile… there’s just so much good stuff on this bill, and it’s a free show!
