On Friday night I made my way down to the Fremont side of things in Seattle. I don't generally pass thru here but this was a special occasion as our homie Blueprint was in town to headline a show with a number of local acts on the bill including The Th3rdz (JFK, Candidt and Xperience), Grynch, Jewels Hunter, Nathan Wolfe, and The Sharp 5.
