Offbeat Seattle

Season 4 | Episode 3

Seattle isn’t Seattle without its quirkiness. It’s the little offbeat things that make this city a truly unique place. In this episode, we’ll take a closer look at the unorthodox. We’ll catch up with the band Pillar Point at Oxbow Park, home of the famed Hat ‘n’ Boot. From there, we’ll investigate the wonders of the Mystery Soda Machine in Capitol Hill. Then we’ll head to the Pinball Museum in the Chinatown-International District to meet up with The Fame Riot, a group that embodies Seattle’s unconventional style and spirit.
