From one transplant to potentially another, welcome!!Hey yall, I actually might be moving to Seattle next month for a new job (still some things timing wise to iron out). Could I ask for a rundown of your favorite/recommended neighborhoods (housing costs, nightlife, etc.) for some insight as I start to apartment hunt?
Georgetown has a brewery with a donut shop that uses the spent grain to make the donuts haven't looked at rent there tho cuz it's just a bit far from where my girlfriend and I need to beI haven't lived in the City for over a decade now, so I'm not exactly an authority on where to live, but SWT is right... it's pricey everywhere. If I had to move back, I'd look in the more affordable "up-and-coming" areas like Georgetown or Beacon Hill. Great art and food scene in both areas, without the crippling rent/mortgage prices.
Do206.com has everything consolidated, calendar-wise. I'll also get my shit together and post some suggestions in here later, if you'd likeI'm headed to Seattle June 6th to 10th - any must-see concerts in that stretch? In Philly we have a great concert calendar run by our local radio station, XPN, that lists every concert from every venue chronologically. Anything similar in Seattle to browse?
Looks like I'm movingReal Estate is playing in Tacoma Friday night HERE
Tickets are super reasonable and the venue is great (it’s fairly new, we’ve seen both Waxahatchee and Wolf Parade there recently) between this place and the new McMenamin’s Elks Club, Tacoma actually has venues that can handle/draw decent mid-tier musical acts.
Looks like I'm moving
The Strangers site is great for looking at a specific day, but for whatever reason you can't search a block of days. So I just usually default to Songkick. Tacocat is playing on that Saturday, and if you can handle their brand of sugary indie pop they are a fun live act to see.
Thanks @MikeyP and @Dead C for the suggestions.Do206.com has everything consolidated, calendar-wise. I'll also get my shit together and post some suggestions in here later, if you'd like
Yeah. MONO is the correct move between those twoThanks @MikeyP and @Dead C for the suggestions.
I just checked out the do206 website, which is great. I appreciate the Tacocat suggestion but I think I'd rather see MONO that night at Neumos if I get out. If I chose one night of my stay for a concert though, I'll probably go to The Chromatics on Friday night, or The Operators on Sunday night. Great options!
