It's all over the blogs here. The famed Crocodile Cafe venue closed this past weekend. This venue was a pinnacle of Seattle's grunge years. I'm sad to think I've missed my chance to play there myself.

The official news cycle hasn't caught up yet, but here's a prelude:

Hi Scott, yeah it's sad. But it seemed like other venues took their slice of the pie in the last 5+ years.

It's so sad. I'm in Nashville now, but I grew up in Seattle. I remember the Off Ramp, Croc, Backstage...great venues and even better memories. It's sad that so many have died. I guess it's the nature of business. It's not like there's a shortage of bands in SEA but real estate prices/rent is ridiculous there - well, everywhere - which likely has a lot to do with it.
