SEATTLE ROCK DAY




Greetings Rockaholics,
 
Sometimes it’s good to look back and acknowledge one’s history. The rock of the Northwest is timeless and as popular as ever. In just a few short days Nirvana will be inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame!  Soundgarden celebrates the 20th Anniversary  of “Superunknown” with a massive reissue in June.  Pearl Jam are doing what they do best, all-around the world touring in support of “Lightning Bolt” and Alice In Chains even headlined Pain In The Grass last year!
 
We at KISW deem it time to pay tribute, Rockaholics!  Thursday, April 3rd  is the return of Seattle Rock Day on KISW! We will celebrate the history of Seattle rock, all day long! From Alice In Chains to The Wailers, from PJ to Zeke, from Jimi to Queensryche, from Nirvana to Heart… you get the idea! We’ll pay tribute on April 3rd, all day and night long, for our 4th  Annual Seattle Rock Day!!
 
BJ Shea will get you started with the sounds of the mighty Pacific Northwest. Ryan Castle, The Mens Room and myself all have different things up our sleeves planned for you.
 
 
Dig some of our Northwest favorites in this playlist! 
 
Here’s to Seattle Rock Day!
