(Twitpic from Monday night’s Pearl Jam concert at KeyArena)
West Seattle Pearl Jam fans (and others from around the city) are talking about the band’s 1st of 2 KeyArena concerts right now – on Facebook, on Twitter, in bars, at home, wherever. Among them, Olivia, who noted on Facebook that PJ leader Eddie Vedder urged the crowd to vote for fellow West Seattleite Dow Constantine for King County Executive. (Dow, of course, has been rocking the vote in various venues, including the Mudhoney intro we video’d at West Seattle Summer Fest.) According to Olivia, EV then quipped that Krist Novoselic (formerly of Nirvana) told him to say that.
2 MORE ROCK NOTES: Jeff Gilbert of the Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor) in Morgan Junction says Sunday’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Garage Sale raised $300 for White Center Food Bank. (And they’re working on a Halloween event – stay tuned!) And if you missed Chris Ballew as Caspar Babypants at the West Seattle Farmers’ Market on Sunday — the quick clip we featured in our first Junction Car Show report is topped by the fun clip shared by West Seattleite Edgar Riebe: “Three Blind Mice.”
ARTS NOTE: ArtsWest just launched a new fundraising campaign — 500 @ $50. They’re hoping to get at least 500 people to chip in $50 (or more) each.
HISTORY REVISITED: A month and a half after we covered the city Landmarks Preservation Board voting to give city-landmark status to The Sanctuary at Admiral, the West Seattle-based website Vintage Seattle has just published several historic photos and a drawing contributed by the granddaughter of one of its architects. See them here.
EATERY FOR SALE: It’s a blind listing but you’ll probably have the same guess we did, regarding this CL item about a Junction restaurant “across from California at Edmunds” offered for $300,000. (No, it’s not the shuttered Ama Ama – that’s for sale by name at $199K.) We’ve got a message out looking for confirmation. TUESDAY AFTERNOON NOTE: The very first commenter found the listing that confirmed it’s Tom Yum Koong.
