SEATTLE MUSIC SCENE IS THE FOCUS OF NEW PBS DOCUMENTARY On October 21st, PBS will air a new documentary about Seattle's music scene titled Seattle Music... something in the water? The short highlights KEXP and DJ John Richards, along with local record label Sub Pop. It also features Seattle artists such as Pickwick, Pat Wright and the Total Experience Gospel Choir, The Tripwires, Shabazz Palaces, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, and The Head and the Heart. It will air as part of the PBS program American Masters.
I sort of wonder if John Richards will talk about his controversial paycheck. I know I need to let it go, but every time they do a pledge drive I can't help but think of it. Maybe it's just that I wish my monthly take-home was $7,500. Or maybe I have too much Occupy Wall Street on the brain.
