Seattle rocks! This month's History Café looks at rock music in Seattle with the EMP Museum's Senior Curator Jacob McMurray and Kathy Fennessy, who was the music director for KCMU (now KEXP) in the late 80s and early 90s.

Join us on the 3rd Thursday of the month at Roy Street Coffee (http://www.roystreetcoffee.com/) on Capitol Hill for lively a discussion about history. Each cafe features a different topic, and invites history enthusiasts to come together and share what you know. Grab a cup of coffee - or glass of wine - and enjoy learning about the past!

This event series is brought to you by MOHAI (http://www.seattlehistory.org/), KCTS 9 (http://www.kcts9.org/), The Seattle Public Library, (http://www.spl.org/) HistoryLink.org, (http://www.historylink.org/) and Roy Street Coffee (http://www.roystreetcoffee.com/).

RSVPs: Seating at History Cafe is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Your RSVP gives us an idea of how many people are coming, but does not guarantee you a seat, so we encourage you to arrive at least 15 minutes early. If an event is full on Meetup, you may still come.

Parking: Roy Street Coffee & Tea has a parking garage that offers limited free parking to café customers. If that lot is full, metered and unmetered street parking can be found nearby, or we recommend parking in lots at any of the following locations: NE corner of Broadway and Mercer ($8 evenings), Mercer between Harvard and Broadway ($6-9 evenings), Thomas between Harvard and Broadway ($6 evenings).
