“Everything in this town used to be something else” -These Streets

Squid Row was a classic hangout for the underground youth of Seattle. Residing on the now demolished 500 block of Pine, it was a small and steady staple of the early grunge scene, it hosted several well known and not so well known bands. Like most great venues in Seattle, Squid Row has since become a condo. But, all the blurry memories after too many beers still remain.
