Seattle Growth Podcast 4.10: The future of legendary music venues

Seattle’s white-hot real estate market has struck the death knell for a litany of old institutions. Some of the city’s most legendary music venues can look a little shabby amid the gleaming new construction of a spiffed-up cityscape. So what does the future hold for Seattle’s famed music clubs and dive bars?

Episode 10 of the Seattle Growth Podcast, season 4, takes up this question and considers the political clout that Seattle’s music community carries amidst a city’s transformation.

Steven Severin, the co-owner of Neumos, shares what has made the venue so successful and what challenges the future holds for his establishment and many others in the Seattle music scene.

And David Meinert, a longtime club owner, event organizer and manager—whose Onto Entertainment represents the platinum-selling band The Lumineers—describes what he sees as an important missing piece in Seattle’s music scene.
