The line stretching outside Easy Street Records in The Junction this afternoon was there for a rising-star duo: Capitol Hill hip-hop artist Macklemore and musical partner Ryan Lewis, signing autographs:
Macklemore’s road to stardom is a distinctly new-millennium path – as detailed by our partners at the Seattle Times earlier this year. Right now, he’s on break from a national tour (here’s the schedule), after performing his Dave Niehaus tribute “My Oh My” at the Mariners’ home opener – here’s the Times’ video with Macklemore’s song as the soundtrack for scenes from the event:
P.S. There’s a signing event at Easy Street West Seattle next Saturday too – as part of Record Store Day, Grieves and Budo will be there at 3 pm (April 16).
