Seattle sure has one craaazy music scene…

I spent the beginning of last night crammed in a room with 99% of Seattle’s under 16 population in complete agony in that it’s-so-hot-I-can’t-breathe sort of way. But then, suddenly, it all melted away the moment Death Cab For Cutie took the stage at The Paramount.

Love them or hate them (“They’re too popular with the hipsters!” “They are amazing and write songs that seem like they were written just for me!” blah blah blah) they were AMAZING. With my ever increasing work schedule and usual 10 pm bedtime (stupid work stealing away my social life, and therefore, anything relevant to post) they managed to keep my attention throughout the entire show and encore – no mean feat. Despite the cries that emo is dead (or was it ever alive?) I can’t help but feel that without them Seattle’s music scene just wouldn’t be the same.
