Live Music Clubs People who aren t in the know seem to still be stuck in the mindset that the Seattle live music scene is restricted to grunge and emo. Grunge began about two decades ago and, rain be damned, Seattle has more to offer than whiney emo bands. The Showbox at the Market is one of Seattle s premier venues for national touring acts. Since 1939 the venue has featured legendary acts including Duke Ellington and the Ramones along with today s favorites such as Jimmy Eat World, The Pogues and The New Pornographers. The recent addition of the Experience Music Project to Seattle included new venues within Liquid Lounge and the Sky Church. This venue also books famous national acts along with up and coming Seattle bands. For more local favorites, try Neumo s, High Dive and Doc Maynard s. Who knows, you might witness music s next big thing.
