“Wu Tang Clan ain’t nuthin to fuck with!” I have always wanted to see this legendary rap group but have missed every Seattle show. However not this year and even though I hate WAMU theater for shows I still had to make attendance. WAMU is a huge area usually with an entire general admission venue with some exceptions on folding chair seating and stands in the very back. The sound quality inside is never good, it echos and loud bass and tremble over powering the performers. They are very strict on what you can bring inside and it cost money to check your shit into lockers outside, real pain in the ass. Not to mention they only have one area when you first walk in for drinks and nothing can be taken into the venue-performance area. So that means you sit in a long ass lines for a $10 beer that you can only buy 1 per person and it can’t leave the beer garden which the show cannot be seen from. WAMU is located in downtown Seattle and a terrible parking zone. About the only benefit to WAMU is at least you know the artist made their money of housing a huge place for lots of ticket sales. Anyway, the group did decent for the shitty venue and the ODB cover /tribute was on point with much energy. My favorite of the group that specific show was Method Man, he was about the only one who had the crisp original voice while others were distorted due to the venues low capabilities. They did all the classic tracks and mixed a few songs together which sounded good the way they did it. The lights and background effects added great appeal and the crowd went crazy as seen here they all put up W’s to show their support to the group. All and all worth it but would never see them again if it was at this venue. WAMU Theater should just stick to EDM shows with lasers and shit.
