If you are in the Seattle area- you are aware of what has been happening with Studio Seven.  This awesome little club in the SoDo district, described in Seattle’s local News and Entertainment weekly The Stranger, as “An incubator for local talents and frequent all-ages tour stop for national metal and punk acts, Studio Seven is a low-key treasure of the south end.” had a tragedy befall it outside of the club on Feb 10 of this year that resulted in a 27 year old man’s death. In what can only be described perhaps as an over reaction by the powers that be to something that was totally out of the club’s control, the club lost it’s liquor license but was allowed to remain open for shows.  There has been a lot of legal back and forth and… well….  lawyers cost- that is just fact.  We covered Malfunkshun’s show their in March of 2017 and found the place to be pretty cool- and it is on our list now of one of our favorite places in the Seattle area.   Bands not only play there, they also practice their as well when the club isn’t open to the public ( rehearsal space that is reasonably priced is available 24 hours a day depending on shows and such)  and The Rock that is KISW 99.9 along with the music family that is the Seattle Music Scene is coming together to do what they can to help Tracy, Nicole and their staff meet the mounting legal bills and keep going.   Details on the show as well as a link to get tickets are below. If you can’t make the show then please consider donating to the Go Fund Me that has been set up to help keep things going.  Seattle’s music scene is a lot more than what happened in the 90’s… it was happening before and it continues to thrive today.  If you are in Seattle, please go down and check out the amazing bands that are playing and show your support- and if you aren’t local, please consider donating at the link below.  Thanks everyone!

By Sylvia Lee

Editor/ Staff Writer and Co-Founder of ZRock'R Magazine. Sylvia has worked in and around music since she was 16, though it has always been a part of her life. In radio ( her last radio job was in the mid-90's at KKLZ before departing for other pursuits) , as part of various tour support/production crews, in promotion of both bands and even clubs (recipient of the Climax/Plan C Entertainment Blackberry Award in 2007 for her work as production manager of the Las Vegas MC Jin show ) and in rock journalism with a music column in the late 80′s called MusicLine in the Independent News in central Illinois. Sylvia has also has written articles and reviews for SCOPE, The Reader, Las Vegas Music Scene Magazine, Vegas SoundZ (she was PR director for LVMS where she helped push a little known and upcoming at the time Vegas photographer then known as Shane O'Neil Dobbs ( he later dropped the Dobbs), landing him his first concert shoot for a publication with Nine Inch Nails at the Thomas and Mack in '95) and she also did PR for Vegas SoundZ when they were in print). She also was a contributor to LA’s FIX Magazine. Sylvia credits her love of rock journalism and working in and around it to the person she calls the “First Lady of Rock n Roll Journalists” The legendary Jaan Uhelszki who co-founded influential music publication CREEM Magazine, but also gives a nod to the women who were also involved in the early days like Lisa Robinson and photographer Lynn Goldsmith. Sylvia's eye for talent and ear for great music have never failed her. Ever sarcastic with a love for Metal, Grunge, Punk, and Industrial Music; the occasional glass of fine wine; enjoying some classic movies (the original Universal horror films are a favorite) or binging episodes of Monty Python's Flying Circus, Good Omens or all 4 seasons of Stranger Things - she is the fearless leader of this bunch of talented lunatics.
