This is Grudge Rock: The Rock ‘n’ Roll Family Feud, which Stratton has been hosting at Re-bar for going on seven months. It is Seattle’s funnest new rock night. For the rest of the night, the members of Helms Alee and Akimbo are asked to name Popular All-Girl Rock Bands (Sleater-Kinney, the Runaways) and Bands Whose Lead Singer Went On to Do Bigger and Better Things (Police/Sting, No Doubt/Gwen Stefani). Just like in the traditional game of Family Feud, the band that can guess all the correct answers before getting three strikes wins the points. To make it a little more rock and roll, the bands take turns performing live sets at the end of each round. On this particular night, after stealing quite a few points (and playing a killer set), Helms Alee took home the grand prize, an envelope containing all of the door money.
