Apr 25 Steven Severin commented on The City Council Will Soon Spend Half a Million Dollars More a Year on Staff.
Heidi have you talked to them about how the plan to pay for all of this? I have heard that they are looking at raising the taxes on small businesses. Seems a little absurd to me considering that's a lot of small businesses are still trying to figure out how to pay for the increased wages that they have to pay their staffs since a lot of them have not raise their prices yet. Surprising that city Council would do that after we just increased minimum wage. Love to hear what you know.

Seattle is so passive it's insane. Call people out. Name names. You want change? Do something? Make changes. Vote in every local election. It's fine to complain if you also take some action to make the changes. If you don't it falls on deaf ears. My two cents.
May 22, 2015 Steven Severin commented on Seattle Music Community Stunned by Untimely Death of Darius Minwalla.
Darius was one of those people that you would say he was such a nice guy. It's truly an understatement for those who knew him well. He was the nicest, sweetest, and most kind hearted friend a person could ask for. I was and still am devastated hearing the news. Originally I looked on his FB and there were no comments so I thought it was a really bad joke. He's too young and too good of a person for this to happen. It's so unfair. He was such a beautiful man who gave a lot of joy to people all over the world. He had just been in Japan so at least we know he was doing what he loved before his time came up. Thanks to Sean Nelson for this piece. Well done.

This looks like a lot of things are finally starting to happen to change the culture of the police in Seattle at least. I remain extremely cautious with a hint of optimism.

Chris did a hell of a job. It's a very difficult and thankless gig. Damned if you do and damned if you don't. Let's just take a moment and show some respect for the man that created some great shows and some of the times of my life. Look forward to see what you get into next.

As for AEG and Chad booking it well there's some big pocketbooks and Chad made the Showbox what it is today. I'm sure it'll be different but that's not always a bad thing.

100% wrong regarding time machine to kill Hitler. Sure there's others you could kill like Pol Pot but killing Hitler would be a fantastic use of a time machine.
Nov 23, 2014 Steven Severin commented on What's Going On with Bumbershoot?.
I love Bshoot and am super bummed that folks haven't been paid. Running a festival is very difficult let alone trying to make $. What Bshoot charges for all the acts compared to a lot of other fests is pretty reaso.

The thing that kills Bshoot is the damn rain.

I'm sorry to see them going through tough times and hope they get it together and pay the people that they owe ASAP. That's not cool.
