Does the hour that's right I won't played the original owner Daria are the who remain of the view. Main floor that our boats are does yeah it's it's always a ton of fun down there although I was there Ferrari now and then looking a little further out yes you guys every claim upstream we. Aren't I should thank you I'm so excited feeling and seeing a lot of like reading get into the streaming and follow it totally understood and I understand that yeah not everybody can get into everything I didn't get into last year I had any I'd let you know what I knew I whence I am not a story of hope and then. I know AP and BC family dining. Now on we Lewis is this is the story of being musician in town or your friends of Billy town the people it's really hard because there's a lot of amazing people and Jackson on a spaces and and my attitude generally is when I get down about it I didn't try to get myself back up and realize there's going to be some holes I'm Laura and persevere people yeah. So here we are playing Justine and I do. One and maybe go back a little bit really quick before we do get out of here wouldn't and you're saying you cannot her in the 2008 so right space even around for awhile you know. I don't know almost isn't it how do you feel about. Seattle as city. And because a lot I know a lot of people learn as heading for the hills a little bit and none because of snow reasoning print prices and all this stuff. But you know those serve as a city that also. You know being artists in the community prudent in those feelings I imagined continuing in different directions that. Yes yes no no no no no I do appreciate you bringing in you duck on the I answer yes how's grade Haggan and Guinness Tressel legs there. I mean I love Seattle IA always say the I'd like to live here through marrying year option I would just put on the gas mask and staying. Because I love the people I love how beautiful it is here. I gave myself Ameren turn so I know firsthand how difficult is to afford. Housing in this city. And you know I know and the opposite of alone and most of my friends artists in his seems to be. Recurring scene and conversations. That I have with with people. And you've part of the thing that Warren do this does is we donate half of our door to putting people in homes. And I'm yeah it is it is and it feels good to doomed. And because if we should all dislike lives and the places shelter and is please Dmitry music played a role in what's gonna happen into the city. And I know city errant strand story like what happens if Ollie are honestly isn't. So let's sign that I think we're all feeling in all kind of worried about. But I hold hope that we are NN develops and real solutions. I have to hope fat because I love this place. Yeah I think it means. I'm a little on the outside because I love up north and emirates and I feel like it keeps getting better and better all the time but you know and it's getting mark Spencer's mom and easy these departures and it's like. When bands are telling me that they're moving to Los Angeles. Because it's new I mean Wright is. There's a lot of industry. Tools there to help them but. It's also more affordable it's more sort of our dollars and that's something I mean so there's something gets better and. I don't generic city sure a couple of years and it is this is this feels comparable the seals Tom Reynolds a cost of living. Just is not just your high rent diocese everything else haven't you afford. But for us mile and a house with. With roommates so that's how we make it work. To I can share living situation but. Me people you can get treated as they weren't but edition how soon so I I and the scene and the guy you get the real change paper from. One Menendez and I saw there is a recently. Hustle relatively positive article on there that said. That's something recently got past that that was allowing for some more affordable housing somewhere in the sitting. But you know it's like one section. That in the Serb problem that seems to be a little bit bigger than just one section moon and the city but I had hold hope. I think that if we all actually participate in local politics. As artist. I'll say I can't do big news out lets do it just you know I just don't seem friends lead singer who's mostly. Yeah I know south initially asked the same mind that it's like. I wanna see these bands play yeah. The bulls trying uses its its just a heart of the city is so small town. But. Ya cool things going on salute you lots of great venues cool new massive festival like upstream mature I think that's my that's yes I do not super smooth segue I can't upstream. From the sort of like. Kind of dark thing that we're talking about that by the way way. Can see more Indians and yes hey we're yet is there. Down in the pipeline at all. Is there warned in alum.
