Nirvana in Raymond

Raymond Theatre Raymond, Washington ~ August 28, 2010

You just never know. Yesterday evening, as we were driving back to Astoria from visiting the Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma, we turned off the narrow highway to have a look at the town of Raymond (population 2,975 in the year 2000). We hadn't expected to see this charming theatre, which has clearly been restored with loving care. You can see its web site here. Too bad about the modern marquee, but overall, it makes a striking impression. It seems that the grunge band Nirvana played its first gig here in 1987. Who knew?

I can see that starting in Raymond can lead to a dismal end

What a unique looking theater! You tempt the gods with a name like Nirvana, Lee.
