Dead But Dreaming
Newsletter #13 - April 2002
Greetings to all you Dead But Dreaming fans! Once again it's time for an update
from the band.
Big thanks go out to those who attended DBD's most recent shows at the Harborside
Bar & Grill on February 16th, and the Ballard Firehouse on February 17th. The
Harborside show featured an energetic full-length set by the band, debuting
guitarist Devin Hall. The Firehouse show was an all-ages event, and the band
closed the evening out in typical Dead But Dreaming style, with a power-packed
selection of songs for the shorter show time.
The band has been forced to cancel some of its shows recently due to guitarist
Devin Hall's decision to depart from the band. However, he is sticking it through
for two important shows that Dead But Dreaming hopes to make the most of. The
first is at The Manette Saloon on Saturday, April 13th! The Manette is located at
2113 E. 11th St. in Bremerton, just a short drive from Tacoma! Show starts at 9pm.
DBD will be headlining this show, with Room Zero (roomzero.net) opening the show
and Sweet Root closing for the night. These bands were hand-picked by DBD, so the
show should be fun and action packed! Directions to the Manette Saloon are as
> From the Ferry Terminal in Bremerton:
When you get off the Ferry, stay to your right. Turn right on the Manette Bridge.
Turn right at first intersection after the Bridge. Take next left on 11th. Manette
Saloon is on the second block on the right.
> From Highway 16:
Take the Highway 304/Navy Yard Highway exit. You get to drive past the big ships
and aircraft carriers. Turn right onto Burwell (heads towards Ferries). You can't
miss the turn, you have to make an effort to miss it :-) Follow all the way through
to where it makes a "T" on Washington. Go left. Turn right on the Manette Bridge.
Turn right at first intersection after the Bridge. Take next left on 11th. The
Manette Saloon is on the second block on the right. 360-792-0801,
The next show is Sunday, April 28th at I-Spy in Seattle! I-Spy is located at
1921 5th Ave (between Virginia & Stewart). DBD has had the good fortune of being
selected for the Northwest music sampler CD being released by Humble Rocks Records,
and this show is the CD release party! Dead But Dreaming is opening the show with
a 40 minute set, starting at 8pm sharp, a special bonus for those fans who don't
want to be out late! While you are there, pick up your FREE sampler CD featuring
the bands that will be performing that evening, including Dead But Dreaming!
