The varieties of music venues in Seattle have been as vital and vibrant for the people of the Emerald City as the genres that have graced these famous halls. These houses of music have nurtured the entertainment legacy of this region. Each holds a beautiful, haunting, and unique history that has helped shape the Pacific Northwest's musical culture, which, in turn, has helped shape our community. Out of the ashes of the Great Seattle Fire of 1889, the vaudeville age took Seattle by storm. The cultural and community centers harmonized with operas and symphonies. From the 1962 World's Fair to world-famous street musicians, Seattle's Music Venues will take the reader on a pictorial journey through 100 years of images compiled from the photographic collections of the Seattle Public Library, Seattle Municipal Archives, Library of Congress, and the author's personal collection.

This is a good read ! I was fortunate to see some exceptional concerts in Seattle from the late '60s on, but the author goes back much farther and certainly did some amazing research putting this together. Explore the interesting history of the many places to enjoy shows and concerts in the greater Seattle area for the past 150 years or so.
