Light in the Attic
Immerse yourself in Seattle’s pioneering music scene with our Light in the Attic guest rooms. Located on our 20th floor, the one-of-a-kind Light in the Attic rooms celebrate Seattle’s visionary independent record label. Each room feature turntables, a label-curated collection of vinyl records, large photographs of influential artists, and a copy of the label’s zine.
When Light In The Attic was founded in 2001 the dot-com bubble was bursting and conventional wisdom was declaring vinyl dead. With a fierce commitment to quality and disdain for convention, the label sought out under-the-radar recordings and released over 200 instant classics including Wheedle’s Groove, an exuberant affirmation of Seattle’s soul heritage, the recordings of Sixto Rodriguez, the Detroit-born artist and star of the Oscar-winning film, Searching For Sugar Man, and reissues of funk goddess Betty Davis and larger-than-life crooners Serge Gainsbourg and Lee Hazlewood. You can find their records at their store at the KEXP studio in Seattle Center and in every Light in the Attic guest room at Hotel Theodore.
