SSG MUSIC
Sea-Tac Airport is now a music adorer’s mecca. Saturday, the airport celebrated the new Experience the City of Music initiative by inviting musical marvels from the northwest. Artists such as Recess Monkeys and Fly Moon Royalty filled the south end baggage claim with dancing, performances and their regional sounds.  Famous natives such as Alice in Chain’s Jerry Cantrell reminds airport-goers “that smoking is allowed on the lower drive outside the building and only in designated areas … Bummer, dude.” A free app is also now available for download, so travelers and homebodies alike can take the sounds with them beyond the airport doors.
