The Spanish Castle


Currently on exhibit at The Scenic Drive on Capitol Hill is the "i miss you" show. From the website- "Local artists reflect on the buildings in Seattle they miss through visual, oral, and written histories. Come share your story." 

There are way too many great buildings in Seattle that have come and gone. The Spanish Castle was a famous dance hall/club built in the 1930's that had tons of great acts come through there up until the late 60's. Among those acts was a young Jimi Hendrix, who later wrote a song about it called Spanish Castle Magic. The Sonics, and the Wailers were among the many local bands that also came through there . You can read a history of the building and the acts that came through there here.

Other buildings in the exhibit are:
THE BELMONT-KINGDOME-TWIN TEEPEES-619 BUILDING- RAINIER COLD STORAGE-1502 BUILDING

Zach! Hey, thanks dude. Getting images to open in a new window is just a line that you need to paste into your EDIT HTML section. Unfortunately, I did it so long ago, I can't remember the line, or where it goes in there.(I'm not that html savvy, sir)If you search for it in Blogger FAQ, I bet you can find it.
