But listening to Alice in Chains today, I have to argue that they ARE a Metal band…and I simply cannot get enough. I cleared out Amoeba’s AIC section and have read just about every book about the Seattle music scene Amazon has to offer. Fuck, I bet my checking account balance is getting low.
So I did, and my three day stay in Seattle was amazing.
Vaden Todd Lewis came on shortly after. One song into his set, one of his guitar strings broke and he had to use Kate Lynn’s guitar for the remainder of the show. It was exciting being in that intimate of a setting, and the few technical errors only made the show more interesting, more human, and that much more memorable.
Aesthetically, The Triple Door is elegant and modern, without feeling pretentious. The starry black backdrop and vast stage enhance the majesty of the musicians. I don’t go to seated concerts very often, but given the nature of Vaden's performance, I didn’t feel any urge to head bang or stage dive. The waitresses are available when needed, but they truly don’t disrupt from the talent onstage. Cocktails aren’t terribly expensive, about $10 a drink and you have the option of ordering food if you get hungry.
