as far as i know, there never was a vatican in seattle. and i worked at the rocket where we knew about all the shows no matter where they were, and i've never heard of the vatican. that doesn't mean there wasn't one, but somehow i can't imagine it slipping by the entire staff of the rocket.
there must be some mistake.
jermaine:"I didnt know there was a VATICAN in Seattle. I only knew of the one down here in Houston on Washington street..."
and i grew up right around the corner-wescott and camellia. that's right westside, represent.
Jerm, I had the honor to see Nirvana during Bleach era and Nevermind. I saw them in Tijuana Mexico and also erlier that day in side Off the Record in San Diego. They let in like 25 people and they played through little practice amps and Dave had a little Gamco kit. It was like 3 weeks after the release of Nevermind so you could smell it in the air. This was going to get huge. I remember him being nervous and he kept saying he was hungover. I also remember them playing "Rape me" and others that didn't surface untill in utero. What a cool day in my life.
It was funny at the Soundgarden/PJ show (I worked Load in/out), cuz the band was really cool people and hung out and shit with all of us. But Eddie was like the Lone Wolf, head slung low, no eye contact. ya know.
The way I remember it is.... this was just a small show. Yeah, I remember it. About 200 people at the most, about a week before the Nirvana gig. They were all good folk then. By the time they came back for the Soundgarden Unicorn thing, Eddie was all ate up with it.
