Video from ETG Closing Party!

Sunday, January 12th, 2014

The Shameless Social on November 23rd, 2013, was both the end of an era and a party for the record books. We spent over twelve hours saluting the legendary Electric Tea Garden, the longest lasting underground venue in Seattle dance music history. It was by far the most packed, crazy event in ETG’s almost 20 year history and a great send-up featuring friends old and new. The party started out strong and the dance floor was packed well before 11pm. It ended with bittersweet stories, smiles and tears from everyone in Shameless and ETG’s truly committed staff. Local videographer Cameron Jessup was able to capture some great footage of the peak hours at the event, including MC Anton Bomb performing over Adlib, our surprise impromptu marching band performance, and a glimpse of the mighty Donald Glaude, our surprise headliner for the night. Check it out!

Special thanks to Donald Glaude, Luke Mandala, Bad Pioneer and Nark for joining us on the decks, to ETG’s amazing staff and crew for all the years of hard work and, last but not least, to all the partiers and dancers out there who have supported both ETG and Shameless for so long. We love each and every one of you.

Seattle – Mid 90s Rave

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

It’s rare to find decent video footage from back in the pre digital camera era that captures Seattle’s electronic music community. Yet before Nirvana was playing out to crowds of more than 40 people, the underground dance scene was strong! So much so that it was about to blow up in the early 90s. That was until grunge rock pushed it back underground again. Not necessarily a bad thing considering the underground is usually where most of the innovation and new ideas are generated. It really didn’t start to resurface again until the mid 90s so coming across this gem was a treat. Features an incredibly cute Groovin’ Kim (Nwtekno.org), Donald Glaude, DJ Grover and many others. Unfortunately the video doesn’t always mention the people they are interviewing, but there are some familiar faces that are still involved with the scene today.
