I moved to Olympia in 2007 expecting it to be like this.. but it really isn't anymore. There aren't a whole lot of bands that are doing anything new, and most of those, like Chung Antique or Gun Outfit, move away. Right now the big bands in town is a band that sounds exactly like Void, a band that sounds exactly like Dinosaur Jr, and a band that sounds like Rush and Thin Lizzy fucking and all three of these bands have their heads so far up their asses it is almost funny.
The K Records crowd are super supportive of their own, but are willfully ignorant of everything else going on.
I'm glad that Survival Knife is finally happening, though I wish it was when I still lived in Oly!
