Members of Pearl Jam and Death Cab For Cutie are among the more than 150 artists who signed an open letter in an attempt to save Seattle’s iconic music venue, The Showbox, from demolition. The effort appears to have worked, with the Seattle City Council voting on Monday (August 13th) to temporarily save the Showbox from being torn down and replaced by a 44-story luxury residential tower. The club, which has hosted shows over the years from artists like Prince, Eminem, the Ramones, the Police and countless Seattle acts like Soundgarden, was brought under the temporary protection of the Pike Place Historical District for 10 months, although it is not technically part of the District at the moment. British Columbia-based developers The Onni Group recently announced their plans to demolish the venue, which were met by opposition at nearly every turn. Efforts are still ongoing to have it declared a historical landmark, which the Council stopped short of doing on Monday.
