Q&A with Steven Severin, co-owner of Neumos
What sets Seattle’s music scene apart?
You have people that have moved from all over the country to come be part of it. That multiplied and built one of the greatest cities, if not the greatest, for music.
What’s the best ’hood for nightlife?
The epicentre is Capitol Hill. The corner of 10th and Pike is probably the busiest corner in the state. In the area, you can check out local bands, national acts, spoken word, independent theatre and movies, art galleries and eat anything from Malaysian to burgers – then follow it up in a bar serving up interesting cocktails and fantastic music.
