Pacific Northwest

The Pacific Northwest's musical legacy stretches all the way back to the 1960s, when garage rock bands like The Sonics and The Kingsmen made their mark in the upper left-hand corner of the artistic map. At this point in time, a list of all the notable, influential bands hailing from Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, Olympia, etc. could fill several pages, but suffice it to say, these cities birthed grunge and riot grrrrl movement, and remain a hotbed for indie rock and folk music. The Pacific Northwest also houses its fair share of high-profile record labels, including Sub Pop, Barsuk, Kill Rock Stars, and K Records.
