So, for the better part of the last 6 months, Rachel Ratner(KEXP, Butts, Partman Parthorse, General Awesomeness) and I have been curating(she), designing(he) and displaying(us) an 8' x 12' map and study of how bands in Seattle are connected by shared members. All the bands need to do in order to form a connection is to have released a recording in any fashion or played a show together.
It is incredible!

It will be traversing through different parts of town throughout the summer. It is a community installation, so we are looking for and encouring the music scene at large to contribute and fix any connections which they know of. Read more about it at the blog. We hope it is a never ending connection.
