Seattle Weekly's Description

In today’s high-tech world, branding means everything. Ironically, one of the most reliable and identifiable music venues in town regularly hosts bands that draw their influence from the pre-computer age. For those with a hankerin’ for some alt-country, folk, or rockabilly, everyone in Seattle knows to head down to Ballard’s homey Tractor Tavern.

    See Dave Alvin. The Tractor is a great venue and one that you should go to as often as possible. Support live music!
