I'm back in Seattle for today. OK, I'm here for Van Halen, but just for today. I'm wet thanks to the rain. You know, the rain that keeps the Pacific Northwest green the rest of the year. As wet as I am, it is better than being stuck on the Passes, Snoqualmie or Stevens. Sure, it took 12 hours to get here from Moscow by bus, but it's VAN HALEN.
So, if you let a little rain stop you from going to this show, or even from the Tegan & Sara gig at the Showbox, just remember what some people have gone through to get here.
