SONIC DECAY - A DIY Venue History


MadArt South Lake Union
Sat., Nov. 19, 6 p.m.-12 a.m. 2016 All Ages

With increasing housing costs throughout the city driving out artists at an alarming rate, Sonic Decay—a night dedicated to "remix[ing] and re-enact[ing] the cyclical growth patterns of Seattle's DIY music scene"— serves an important function. This multimedia event, which takes place Saturday, November 19 at South Lake Union's MadArt Studio, aims to document the underground cultural history that's played a key role in fostering some of Seattle's most interesting music and prevent it from vanishing into the ether—even as some of its instigators ponder leaving the area. The bill includes brief oral histories, ephemera, artists displaying their archives of various defunct DIY venues, and the premiere of a mini-documentary Remembering HTFC, about the revered Capitol Hill DIY space Healthy Times Fun Club, directed by Myke Pelly (aka HINTS).
