A look at The Vortex, a Seattle rehearsal hall for bands working to make it in today's challenging music scene. This is the HD version of a short documentary created and originally aired (January 2010) on MTV.com as part of the $5 Cover: Seattle program's B-Side videos. (My other video in the series is at vimeo.com//8039722 )
The video features Seattle bands Achilles Fall, Three Chord Killer, and The Mercury Rising. An extended cut is coming soon. You can also see my second video from the series, Tube Addiction featuring musician/tube amp builders at Seattle's Verellen Amplifiers.
