Recently, Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn declared February to be Seattle Women Who Rock Month. The announcement was spurred by a new play and history project created by Gretta Harley (Maxi Badd, Danger Dens), Sarah Rudinoff, and Elizabeth Kenny called These Streets, a fictionalized story heavily inspired by the lives and music of the women of the Seattle grunge scene of lat 80s and early 90s.

    was really pleased to be reminded of capping day, a band I’d forgotten about but enjoyed way back when! great choices.

    here’s a name you’ve probably never heard of , a seattliete who rocks hard and happens to be a young woman, check out sadie ava. her current band is sundries. they are super rad. just played the sunset its stone foxes. but past incarnations of her fire, include a great punk band called the uta hagens.

    enjoyed this piece! thanks,
