The Next Seattle
Memoir of a music scene (a novella)
In the days just before the rise of the internet, a music scene begins in the small Midwestern city of Terre Haute, Indiana.
A local club owner has a fierce vision of the town becoming the next Seattle. But there is a long way to go to get from a haven for scruffy upstarts to international fame.
Some of the obstacles: a big-time music journalist with motivational difficulties, the antics of the musicians and their fans, a politician looking to make a name and the club owner's own personal drive.
Throughout it all, the music flows, but will that be enough?
