Facebooktwittergoogle_plusmailby feather

The Seattle music scene had quite a good year in 2010. This meant there wasn’t a shortage of topics, or news items, for chroniclers of the scene like us here at Guerrilla Candy to write about. From Shabazz Palaces making an unforgettable public debut at Neumos to the hype-heavy Head and the Heart winning over thousands of fans, there was rarely a dull week of 2010 for those invested in the local music scene. So in case you weren’t paying attention, here’s a recap of the year that was for Seattle music:
