Giving Alternative a New Definition
One of the longest-running alternative clubs in Seattle. The 2018 1st Ave location was originally a hotel, then brothel, built at the turn of the century. The Vogue was a small, dark club seminal in what would become the “grunge” scene plus many others, from garage to reggae to the 1st Acid House party on West Coast. Bruce Pavitt, co-owner of Sub Pop, worked there. Well-known co-manager Monny Rybick was a former sailor who wore a leather skirt & would direct newcomers to other venues if he felt The Vogue wasn’t right for them.
Nirvana played their 1st show here in ‘88, opening for Blood Circus. Mudhoney’s 1st show was here too, opening for Das Damen from New York City. Other bands who’ve played here include Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Primus, Tad, Treepeople. Mother Love Bone, Zipgun (Cajun Metal), NOFX, Wayne/Jayne County & countless more.
