Emerald City Soul Night at Lo Fi
The Emerald City Soul Club has been putting on soul dance nights around Seattle for the past couple of years. They focus on Northern Soul, quick tempo, garagy, heavy-beat soul music that got big in Northern England in the '60s and '70s, which many of the mods got into. The club has put on a Rare Soul Weekender, a New Years party, a couple nights in various clubs, and for the last year or so has been hosting a monthly soul night at the Lo Fi on Eastlake in Seattle. The night is hugely popular. From hardcore soul fanatics decked out for a night on the town to curious music fans checking out something new, the night draws a large diverse crowd who comes ready to dance, drink and have fun. I shot this last Saturday from a packed to capacity dance floor. For more information, check out the Emerald City Soul Club MySpace page.
