by on May 20th, 2017 | No Comments »

The whole time all those yuppies and tech wankers were hobnobbing around Pioneer Square drinking $9 microbrews and watching bands they didn’t really care about,’s favorite underground venue Substation hosted a weekend of counter-programmed goodness called Downstream.

Nick Anderson – I’m leaning against a tree that must have been old when my father first ventured into Occidental Park. A pretty girl bought me a beer and told me she doesn’t know what to expect; it’s her first day working at the Comedy Underground and while she’s looking forward to the money, she has no idea what the crowd is going to be like. She’s cautiously optimistic, which seems to be the prevailing mood.
