Pray for Seattle

A talk with the filmmakers

DP: Totally. I used to go to clubs seriously every weekend. It was that being young thing. We didn't have any money, but we went to the Fab Mab, places in Berkeley. The I-Beam was pretty important.

You were interested in Seattle via friends there.
DP: Yeah. And I have to say that what was interesting is that being in San Francisco -- it's an awesome city, and it's always had its own great music -- but when I was here, it fell into that category of what [Sub Pop photographer] Charles Peterson said in the film about New York and L.A.: people standing around in black and going, "Hmmm, I think the guitarist missed a note." When I would go to shows in Seattle I was like, "You know what? These people are totally not self-conscious." It was just like Charles said, reckless abandon and honest fun.
