Wonk left downtown Seattle and visited a neighborhood to see Mutoid Man, Helms Alee and He Whose Ox Is Gored. All I have to say about that show is HOLY SHIT MUTOID MAN. They ripped Neumos a new one. Fantastic show!
You make it sound like Capitol Hill is so far removed from "downtown Seattle." My hotel is right in the middle of downtown, and that part of Capitol Hill is less than a mile away. It's a longer walk to Safeco, and it's a longer walk to the Space Needle. You had to even clarify I wasn't downtown. It wasn't like I went away from this place I despise so much, I walked a couple blocks up the street.
But yes, killer show. One of my favorites of the year.
