The Music Book – Chapter List

The Music BookHere at Northwest Music Scene we’re proud to be a part of the publication of Dave O’Leary’s second novel, The Music Book. To help promote the book and the Seattle bands discussed within, we’ll be running a series of excerpts taken from it. The book is a collection of the writings O’Leary has done about Seattle bands for both Northwest Music Scene and the now defunct Seattle Subsonic. It is a fictional narrative wrapped around and within the actual music, a story about live music in Seattle, and more broadly, about the power of music in our lives. And a worthy read.

The Music Book is available at Barnes & Noble stores in the Seattle area, at Elliott Bay Book Company in Capital Hill, and on Amazon. The Music Book CD is a benefit for the Wishlist Foundation.
