commented on Seattle Central Community College Confirms That the Egyptian Is Closing at the End of the Month
Wow so the shady truth has surfaced a little...
"A spokesperson for the school said they had no plans to raise the rent and would have loved to see Landmark renew its lease." (This is on the KING5 story btw)
The Seattle side of Landmark is amazing and there are a lot of extremely hard working individuals. However as mentioned previously, the corporate side of Landmark in Los Angeles just fails to understand the Seattle film market. Not only are they closing this theatre abruptly, but the last midnight for The Dark Crystal was fully cancelled after it was listed online and even on paper fliers citywide.
I will never forget coming to Capitol Hill for the first time that I can remember to see "12 Monkeys" with my mom at the Egyptian. RIP

commented on OC Has Something to Say About the First Annual Bumbershoot After Dark
Wow! All this is in addition to the fact that the first announcements stated $25 at the door and that FLYING LOTUS would play same night as four tet. When they swapped the lineup and jacked up the prices still I knew this was going to be a hustle-em-for-what-they-have event. Especially since the ex hall has pretty mediocre sound at best (ie MSTRKRFT @ BS)

I got to see them do BACK TO THE PRESENT when they hit ON THE BOARDS a few years back and it was by far the most impressive/shocking/amazing performance Id ever seen. Even emailed this one woman who was in it (Jill) and she actually replied~!
