It’s Been Real, Easy Street Queen Anne! Yo La Tengo Plays Out Seattle Music Staple


An era in Seattle music is coming to a close – literally. We’re bidding adieu to the beloved Queen Anne location of Seattle’s favorite music peddler, Easy Street Records. The store has been a staple for Emerald City music lovers looking for a clever gift for a friend, for Seattleites looking for the latest album from any artist imaginable, for vinyl-philes looking for interesting finds to add to their collection, and for live music aficionados looking for an intimate in-store performance with a favorite artist.

Easy Street isn’t gone forever, though. You can still visit their West Seattle location – for downtown dwellers, it’s a longer drive or bus ride, but totally worth it. The West Seattle store will maintain the lo-fi DIY feel that we all grew to know and love at the Queen Anne location.

The Queen Anne location closes this Friday, 1/18. Experimental indie-pop legends, Yo La Tengo, will be sending the store off in style with one final in-store performance, which will be sure to include some new songs off their brand new album, “Fade.” (Fitting for a store-closing event, eh?)
