Crosscut’s Urban Hoedown – December 4, 2013


Seattle Times, 1906 touring car for sightseeing. This is way before The Duck!

From our friends at Crosscut:

What do you get when you blend Crosscut writer Knute Berger’s beguiling beard with a full band of talented young musical ragamuffins?

Crosscut’s First Annual Urbanist Hoedown. 

Come for a conversation with Knute about the fascinating history of Northwest urbanism, explored in his recently completed series, “Roots of Tomorrow, Urbanism in our Blood.” Stay for the drinks, bad urbanism puns and the musical stylings of Tamara Power-Drutis’s modernized northwest Americana album. (Did we mention her full band includes 3 singers and a ukelele?)

Come learn about Seattle’s turn-of-the-century roving bike gangs, the arts commune that spawned modern Bellevue and the Italian godfather who invented P-Patches.

Bring your friends, your dogs, your urban knowhow and your love of bicycles. (Full disclosure: The dogs will actually have to stay outside.)

WHEN: Wednesday, December 4, 2013 from 5:30 to 8:00 pm

WHERE: Impact Hub Seattle, 220 2nd Ave South, Seattle, WA  98104
