Here is the direct link to the story (that’s my photo!!) on NPR’s music blog, “The Record” : http://www.npr.org/blogs/therecord/2010/08/20/129326440/olympia-wash-why-here-why-now
Northern opened unofficially in April, 2009 just in time for Arts Walk and officially hosted its first shows in mid-May. The project has been a huge undertaking and I think it’s safe to say it has been extremely rewarding for everyone involved, even through shows where no one showed up, volunteers flaked out and people accidentally destroyed art on the walls.
I’m proud to be a part of the project and my teenaged self thanks me, even if no one else does.
