press room

Seattle Times music writer Andrew Matson has given Damien some of the greatest praise and support in the past year. I use his ‘godfather of Seattle folk’ quote liberally because it is awesome, and an honor. When Matson proposed that Damien do a livestream performance in the old Times press room, we were immediately on board. When we found out it would be with punk band Dude York, we were psyched. An innovative bill in a historic space curated by one of my favorite music writers? All in.

The old press room hasn’t been touched much in the past twenty years, and gives a vibe that is half space station half haunted house. Damien, for one, is in love with it. There’s a moment in his performance of ‘Reel to Reel’ [video to follow] where he actually forgets a line. I asked him afterwards what happened there, and he replied that he was so caught up in the history and the vibe of the room that he got lost in it.

Get lost in it.
