This punk, hip-hop and alternative-music joint is, along with the Crocodile in Belltown, one of Seattle's most revered small music venues. Its storied list of former performers is too long to include, but if they're cool and passing through Seattle, they've probably played here. The audience space can get hot and sweaty, and even smelly, but that's rock and roll.
