Seattle Times
The Seattle Times’ Jonathan Zwickel runs through Seattle’s 2009 musical landscape. He highlights the momentous leap forward for 206 Hip Hop, the revival of Americana powerhouse No Depression, the re-opening of the Crocodile, the amazing reunion of Seattle’s soul community on the Wheedles’ Groove compilation and more. Also highlighted was our office’s City of Music Initiative which passed an admissions-tax exemption that helped certain venues retain more profits from shows and opened the Artist Clinic, providing low-cost health care to artists and musicians via the Country Doctor on Capitol Hill.

Lineout
Seattle Theatre Group Live Nation, and The Lakeside Group present the first-ever No Depression Festival, sponsored by the pioneering and influential roots-music magazine and website. The festival will take place Saturday, July 11, 2009, at Marymoor Park in Redmond, Washington, just outside Seattle. The all-day event will feature Gillian Welch, Iron & Wine, Patterson Hood & The Screwtopians, Jesse Sykes & The Sweet Hereafter, Justin Townes Earle, Jessica Lea Mayfield, a Seattle roots-music all-star revue, and Zee Avi. No Depression launched as a quarterly (and then bimonthly) magazine in Seattle in 1995, and quickly became known as the foremost journalistic authority for roots-music genres ranging from alternative-country to singer-songwriters to bluegrass to trad-leaning indie acts, and beyond.
