Photos: Inside Seattle's bold new nightclub Q in Capitol Hill
About the size of a roller rink and with speakers lacing the ceiling the whole way back, the almost-finished Q Nightclubl looks to be a massive addition to Seattle's music life at night. The club/lounge opens Sept. 8 with DJs Quentin Harris and Little Rock. Erykah Badu will do a solo deejay set there after her set at the Paramount for Decibel Festival, Sept. 28 at 2 a.m. Seattle's DJ Nark will be a fixture but more local selectors are encouraged to apply (firstname.lastname@example.org). For deejays, it's a big room. For everyone else, it's a place to dance until six or seven in the morning. My snap impression is it inspires some of the same techy/warm/hangaresque feelings of being in the Central Library downtown.
