played an all-ages show tonight at
Artworks in the fabled 619 Western loft building.
It was a very brightly lit room, more of a gallery,
with track lighting and watercolors on the walls.
It was a sparsely attended concert, which often
happens when alcohol is taken out of the picture.
Seattle has incredibly anal rules when it comes
to teens and music, which leads to an unfortu-
nate stratification between those over and under
21, reinforcing the de facto age segregation
so common in the US which is bad
for culture and basic getting-along.
I videotaped the show dressed as
a US military officer. No one cared.
