What’s new since my last post?
Well, one big thing happened: It was finally time to hang up the Empty Sea Studios sign outside the studio on Phinney Avenue. The sun was getting low in the sky and was simply amazing to watch this dreamed-about place suddenly seem “real.”
Actually putting the sign in place was an extremely quick process – just four screws on each side, and you’re done. I would call the process anticlimactic except that the result looks so good that it actually was quite climactic!
Overall, the neighborhood reaction seems very positive. The sign generates a lot of traffic to the website, and definitely its fair share of double-takes for pedestrians on Phinney! I’ve been giving out a lot of business cards and having a lot of fun conversations with neighbors and community folks who are all excited to have a new music venue to get to know.
and the show approaches…
Now being just days away from the first concert, things are really starting to come together. There’s still so very much to do, but I think we’re actually going to make it to the finish line in relative style.
