What are some of the major musical landmarks of the greater Seattle Area. Making a trip up next week and would love to catch a couple interesting places. I plan to see Parenthetical Girl live but so many of my favorite bands formed in the area (Olympia especially).
Not sure if anyone local could recommend good places to hear some live bands or some places that were must visits. (Specifically - Bikini Kill, the Gits, Sleater-Kinney, Pretty Girls Make Graves, 7 Year ***** were a few of the local bands I was thinking of for significant areas).
Also - I've really been trying to consider - for other people who hop in here - what would you assume the general musical stereotype is of the area? When you hear Pacific Northwest, what do you think of musically?
