2. Join a Band
Even with grunge long gone, we've still got one of the most vibrant and diverse music scenes in the world. Seattle is a damn fine place to be in a band, with tons of venues booking gigs seven nights a week and lots of people to play with. We're not saying quit your day job to chase your rock & roll dreams, but jamming out every other weekend will do you good. Start your search in the Stranger's Musicians Wanted section.
