SeaweedIn front of a packed Sky Church crowd last night, Tacoma's Seaweed ignited my fond memory of the band's secret warehouse show across the 11th Street bridge back in the early '90s.  They demonstrated the same enthusiasm as the quintet powered through their favorite Seaweed songs (many off Spanaway) and introduced their new song, which gernerated thumbs-up approvement from the crowd.

Guiarist Wade Neal's wife, Kathlyn, joined the band onstage for their 1993  Sub Pop 7-inch version of Fleetwood Mac's "Go Your Own Way." â€" Brad Allen
