Important Bulletin about Seattle Music Scene

From The Seattle Nightlife and Music Association (SNMA)
http://www.seattlenma.org

Yesterday City Councilmember’s Clark and Drago issued a press release and briefing paper outlining a series of proposals in response to the Mayor’s proposed nightlife regulations. http://seattlenma.org/downloads/clark_release  press release herehttp://seattlenma.org/downloads/clark_brief
the briefing paper here.Councilmembers Clark and Drago are proposing a series of actions that if, taken together, would be for more egregious than what the mayor originally proposed. These actions include:Embracing the mayor’s proposal of creating a new nightlife license which would be used to close down clubs at the discretion of the city.Significantly increasing fines for noise violations from $500 up to $6000.Amending the current nuisance ordinance so the city could more easily close down clubs.Requesting the mayor to consider even more regulations on nightlife establishments.
If this entire package were to be adopted, Seattle would have some of the most stringent nightlife regulations in the country.

It appears that Councilmember Clark is intent on seeking approval of all elements of the package! This would have a devastating impact our music industry!!

Your voice needs to be heard now and loud. First, email the City Councilmembers today.   And then attend the MONDAY June 4th public hearing on this package. It begins at 5:30. Get there early to sign up! This hearing is in the City Council Chambers on the 2nd floor of City Hall located at 600 - 4th Ave downtown.

Below are the emails to the councilmembers: the area code is 206

Come Walk with Us! Puyallup-Televised!
Out In Tacoma is building a float for the 2007 Daffodil Parade. Not only are we walking in Tacoma's parade but are going to do Puyallup too! We are really excited and need support. Come walk with us and show your support of local area non-profits that help Tacoma's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered and Questioning community. All are welcome! This event is perfect for families, children and Straight Allies are always welcome to ALL of Out In Tacoma's events.

This Saturday, April 21st, 2007!

Tacoma Parade
Meet us before 10AM at 4th and Pacific (Shuster Parkway). I suggest parking around Freighthouse and taking the tram to 9th and Pacific. We are unit #135. This leg of the parade is not televised.

Puyallup Parade
When we disband form the Tacoma parade, we will be traveling to Puyallup for their leg of the parade. Join us at Noon, no later, and enjoy some snacks. We will be meeting at 7th Ave. SW and 5th Street SW (blinking light near Sparks Stadium). This parade will be televised on In Demand according to The Daffodil Parade peoples. We are float #135!

The theme of our float is "Working Together In Perfect Harmony" to match the Festivals theme of "Daffodils and All That Jazz". We will be playing funky Jazz music and passing out beads to the crowd. We glittered the heck out of this float, ya'll!

All support is appreciated. To find out more about our awesome Tacoma organization, check us out at www.outintacoma.org!

Needed baaaaadly...
So, last year Out In Tacoma made a float for the Daffodil Parade. The Daffodilians then harrassed us one month after the event trying to ban us from future parades for being innapropriate because we had the names of gay organizations on the side of our float. Yes, they wanted to ban us for having NAMES, not based on content or behaviour, but based on words like "Lesbian," "Gay," and "AIDS", the scariest word ever.
We are in need of a used flatbed trailer to make this year's float. It does not have to be nice and if we can just borrow it for a month, we will be happy to decorate, use and give back in the same condition it was given to us in.
Last year we used a flatbed TRUCK and we needed a ladder to climb it. It was hah-larious but not so nice for the 60 year old lesbian diva who has a bad hip.
If you have a friend or relative that you know doesn't use theirs, please ask them if we can or if they just want to get rid of it.
If you have any other ideas or suggestions, please let me know.
We have to participate this year to send a clear message that all organizations in Tacoma have the right to participate in Tacoma festivals and events regardless of the personal feelings of the Board members. Hell, the Log Cabin Republicans are ALWAYS invited to Out In The Park! ;D

Tacoma Food Co-op meeting Wed Feb 21 @ 5:30-7pm, 1321 MLK
From candree.ups@gmail.com

Greetings to everyone,

My name is Chris Andree, I'm a UPS graduate living in Tacoma. I?m contacting you with a local development because it may be related to your interest, that of colleagues and students. There is a small group of interested people from various organizations who are trying to generate discussion about the vision of a customer food co-op in Tacoma. So far this vision includes bringing affordable, healthy and local food options to Tacoma residents in a way currently that is unserviced. I?ve been privy to this new group, and am emailing you because those involved seek a broader base of knowledge and support.


A public meeting will be held to disseminate basic information about food co-ops, the group's basic goals, Q and A, and collect input as well as volunteers to help this project develop.

The meeting will take place Wednsday, Feb. 21st from 5:30-7 pm at the Allen-Russell Building, 1321 Martin Luther King, Jr. Street.


Currently there is a vacuum of food co-ops in the area, as they operate in Seattle and Olympia, but not Tacoma. Although some stores such as Marlene?s, Metropolitan Market, and Stadium Thriftway sell some natural foods, these remain high-end options, are not inherently local and are not co-ops. The goal of this group is to forge a viable alternative to expensive health food stores and bulk outlets.


Why are we interested in a Tacoma food co-op?

-to provide affordable, fresh and healthy food to citizens from throughout Tacoma
-to generate an institutionalized support and a direct outlet for struggling local
farmers (the group involves a Tacoma Farmers' Market Representative)
-to create a more efficient and established avenue for local restaurants to purchase
local produce and other healthy and ?green?food alternatives
-to foster social capital via welcoming facilities, co-op memberships and
participation, public education
-to engender economic injections to the chosen area, including jobs, improved image,
tax revenue
-to possibly locate the co-op in the improving Hilltop (Upper Tacoma) area, to
assist this transitioning area that has experienced troubles
-to reduce environmental impact Tacoma food consumption, notably the externalities of extensive food transport, the impacts of water pollution, soil depletion and genetic alterations associated with industrial agriculture, over-packaging,
-to fortify a location which creates a tangible and continuing education for many community members about nutrition, environmental issues, and to bridge the urban-rural social divide



This development is a exciting prospect and intended to be very open to community input and a process of roughly two years. We invite you to tell your friends and colleagues and to come to the public meeting on the 21st. A press release is being developed and will be distributed widely soon.


Many organizations who assist in co-op development by providing models and advice.

Thank you very much for your time,

"Homeless" Tent Encampment in Olympia Feb 1
"Homeless" Tent Encampment in Olympia Feb 1

On February 1, the "Poor" Peoples Union of Olympia, WA will set up a "homeless" tent encampment in response to a new city ordinance which goes into effect on February 1, making it virtually illegal to be on the street ("homeless") in Olympia. The exact location will not be revealed until the last minute, however it will be a highly visible protest. The eventual goals are to find a permanant location where the people can have a long term, autonomously run encampment and locations where people can be housed in autonomous, democraticly run communities.

The Poor People's Union, since its inception, has sought to overturn the ordinances targeted at the "homeless". Our intitial idea was to have a referendum on the ordinance and gather enough signatures for it. Over the past weeks, however, it has become clear that the PPU will not be able to expediently stop the ordinances from going into effect and has decided to put a referendum off for the time being.

The Encampment should be downtown somewhere. Try asking at Bread & Roses Advocacy Center (1009 e. 4th. ave, olympia wa - look for a yoga sign). Bring blankets, extra clothes, and that sort of thing if you can.
