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.

Seattle Weekly
In a retrospectively nostalgic and contemporarily exuberant recent piece of journalism from Seattle Weekly, “The Tuesday Night Music Club” covers the local music presence during the 90’s and ties it to the up and coming Seattle music scene today. The vignette recalls the “Tuesday Night” show slots as the lowest on the musical food chain, but also holding the most potential for breaking through and being heard. These smaller shows at the Crocodile Café and similar Seattle venues were the humble beginnings of grand musical careers such as Modest Mouse Death Cab, Harvey Danger, Murder City Devils, Pedro the Lion, Blood Brothers and Elliott Smith. As previously mentioned, the article looks not only backward, but hopefully forward at the burgeoning Seattle music scene and the new bands leading the heard. The piece highlights eight budding Seattle bands playing local shows similar to those epic “Tuesday Nights.” Featured bands include: Doctor and the Bird, Ole Tinder, Posse, Three Ninjas, Motopony, Legendary Oaks, Fly Moon Royalty and  Solvents (what! no The’s or Blacks in the names?). Click on the above link to read the article and check out the hot new “Tuesday Night” bands.
