Seattle Weekly
Leading up to the Reverb Festival taking place in Ballard this Saturday, Seattle Weekly has been publishing short Q&A’s with local artists about the influence of the Seattle music explosion of 1991 and how it relates to bands in the area today. A diverse selection of musicians have given their two cents, from The Screaming Trees’ Mark Pickerel to Mash Hall’s Larry Mizell Jr. to singer/songwriter Kelli Schaefer. The answers have largely been positive, but some of them may surprise you.
