Ahh Seattle Rock Day!!
This was so great! There is never enough time to play everyone, so tune in to Loud And Local Sunday at 11pm for my rollover special!
So a Rockaholic named Eric Glass gave me the ok to post his Seattle Music history....one of many but I sure got a kick out of it. Thanks Eric!
Just thought I’d share some of my Seattle Music history.
1992 : I worked at a public storage facility in Olympia where bands used to rent storage space to practice. One day I heard Metallica’s – Seek & Destroy being played by a band. I walked down to the unit to see Nirvana playing a Metallica cover.
1992 : I went to see Tad and Coven play in Bremerton.
1992-1993 : I went to see Nirvana play at the Olympia Capitol Theater’s back room.
1993 : I saw Panic play a show in Seattle with Sanctury at the time Sanctuary was changing their name to Nevermore. The show was called “Sanctuary is Nevermore”.
1994 : I went to see White Zombie and Sepultura play at The Moore. Candle Box was the opening act.
1998 : I dated a girl in Olympia that was next door neighbors with Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill. My g/f said she was the WORST and LOUDEST neighbor EVER!
1999 : I went to a bar in Olympia (The Eastside Club) to see a local band called The Dirty Birds (which is an AWESOME local Olympia band). They opened their set with The Witch by The Sonics.
2002 : My friend Scott Swayze (guitarist for The Dirty Birds) flew to New York to go on tour with Modest Mouse to fill in on guitar.
Thanks again for a great night everyone!
