Seattle

September 5th, 2010 · post by Fred Goodsell · Make a comment

Tonight’s event was hosted by Zapp. The venue (The Hugo House) contained a fairly extensive zine library which Zapp are allowed to keep without paying any rent! The talk was fairly well attended and Graham (the host) was an awesome guy who had spent some time in New Port so we chatted about Welsh punk bands like The Arteries.

Afterward we walked the streets looking for a bar. The first we passed was full of trendy hipsters with expensive haircuts and fancy looking drinks. We walked on… Time moved slow under the Seattle skyline and we were all exhausted after a days travel but the promise of a cold beer kept us going. A dank sports bar with an endless supply of free peanuts and cheap pinball seemed like a worthy place to rest our feet before we headed back to Graham’s place for the night.

The next morning we woke early and somehow managed to eat breakfast and squabble over what order things should be packed into the minivan and still leave only half an hour after our decided departure time.

We headed into the city centre to visit Leftbank Books, a worker owned, radical bookshop. The space is run by a collective of 20 people with seven paid staff. The shop floor extends over three floors with a huge selection of anarchist and radical literature. I picked up the new Peter Gelderloos book ‘Anarchy Work’ published by Ardent Press.

Finally we maded a stop at Buttonmakers.net an vegan run button shop. The space was packed full of box after box of button backs waiting to be mailed out. Next stop Olympia.
