Back Beat Seattle had its first show at the Comet on Friday night and I want to say thank you to the bands who played, to all the people who came to the event (we had some serious competition with Digable Planets across the street at Neumos) and to everyone at the Comet who made me very welcome, especially Michelle, who worked with me on getting the lineup together! We had four of Seattle’s best and most exciting bands: Wayfinders, Hotels, Katie Kate and Steel Tigers of Death. Hotels even dressed up as characters from Back to the Future, and Katie Kate performed with backup singers, Boomzzilla and Mad Rad‘s Terry Radjaw. Steel Tigers of Death stripped down into skimpy, shiny underpants and Wayfinders were total elegance.
