Bauhaus: 19 May 2022, Seattle

Last night, Seattle - Bauhaus in concert at the majestic, opulent Paramount Theater in downtown Seattle.

 
Soriah was the opening act. We missed most of their set because we were in the merch line for quite awhile, but what we witnessed was incredibly powerful, setting the vibe for the rest of the evening.

The Paramount is one of the most ornate venues I've ever seen. Perfect setting. The scent of clove cigarettes, patchouli, weed, and booze hung in the hazy air. Literally perfect.
 

Then the house lights went down and the stage lights flashed on. Strobe lights and fog machine. Then the music began and it felt like a sacred ritual had begun. The gods were summoned.
