Quiz: Bands of the Pacific NorthwestAugust 1, 2008
Driving across Washington State, I saw road signs for a number of places that I realized I recognized mostly because they are the hometowns of indie and alternative bands. So in honour of zedequalszee’s relocation to Seattle, a brief quiz – match the band with the hometown.
- The Dandy Warhols
- Death Cab for Cutie
- Modest Mouse
- Aberdeen, WA
- Bellingham, WA
- Issaquah, WA
- Olympia, WA
- Portland, OR
Bonus question: What band (pictured above) is named after the Washington State Department of Transportation phone number for reporting HOV lane violations?
Answers: (select to read) Dandy Warhols – Portland; Death Cab for Cutie – Bellingham; Modest Mouse – Issaquah; Nirvana – Aberdeen; Sleater-Kinney – Olympia; 764-HERO.
