Seattle Subsonic
Seattle is famous as being the birthplace of grunge. A new book by local author Justin Henderson takes a combination of all known Seattle grunge musicians and explains how the music they made came to be. It is well known that Seattle is the Mecca of all things grunge, but was it ever apparent why this was the case? What is it about this area that influenced musicians to create a style of music that, at least at the time, went completely against the grain? Henderson doesn’t just take this at face value, he explains the history of the region and how its pre-Microsoft isolation from the rest of the world created an atmosphere that was much less expensive to live in. Join the author for the release party for the book at the Moe Bar this Wednesday, July 28. For more details, follow the link.
