No "supposed" about it.
DEFINITELY the worst musical - ever.
i also saw Sigur Ros at the King Cat.
i fell asleep, but mrs. solomon found it transcendent.
hmm. wonder what happened to all nations christian church? i went to high school with pastor vince, and his finding jesus eerily coincided with him being the major suspect in the lunchroom stereo system theft.
I saw the Residents there in 2002. Somehow that ended up being the only time I went there while I was in Seattle.
Neat. I've gone past that place many times and have been curious as to what's actually going on in there. Also, Bollywood films sound like fun.
Great news. I saw Jeremy Enigk there with the 'Frog Queen' orchestra - something to my knowledge he never did again - in 96 I think. It was just magnificent.
Yo La Tengo, Melvins, Sebadoh, Seaweed, Posies, Hater, Sweaty Nipples, and dozens more. I'm sure I'm forgetting some of the best. It will be interesting having the old King Kat back in the mix.
When did the PI become the Seattle Times website?
When I first moved here in the summer of '91, the King Cat was a discount cinema, where I saw "Silence of the Lambs" twice a week for a month. (I was obsessed with the screenplay. Also, I was collecting tips on how to construct my woman suit.)
Sky Cries Mary. Great show. Maybe because there was no bar and I was completely sober to enjoy and remember it. They had someone painting a big picture stage right for the show.
Saw lots of great shows there back in the day...Mudhoney, Red Aunts, Black Happy, Seaweed, etc. I had forgotten about the painting guy, he was a staple at local shows for a year or two. One of the few all-ages venues that operated during the Norm Rice Teen Dance Ordinance days.
Mike Watt's first solo tour. Eddie Vedder on drums and a new band called Foo Fighters opening. Security was making kids toss their wallet chains into the trash at the door, which, it being 95 or so, made for a lot of sad teens.
Sky Cries Mary, Foo Fighters, and Juliana Hatfield Trio (not sure I spelt that right) ... good times.
Personally, I'd go to Ann Taylor for tips on a woman suit.
oh. THAT kind of woman suit.
I worked there when it was still a first-run movie theater. How could that be so long ago?
The bastards who ran the place wouldn't give us an employee discount on the beverages. And the manager's office was air-conditioned, but the concessions area and ticket booth, both with west-facing glass windows, were not. This is no way to build employee loyalty.
I quit a while later when I got a job that paid me a whole .90 more per hour. (From $3.35 minimum wage to $4.25! Woo hoo!)
