Amyl and the Sniffers git rowdy in Seattle / Cat Rose photos

Amyl and the Sniffers.

Text and photos by Cat Rose

If there ever was a gig to attend on a "school night," this was surely the one.

We didn't mind being a bit slow the next day after rippin' it up with Australia's Amyl and the Sniffers at the Crocodile in Seattle on May 11, 2022.

Killer opening bands C.O.F.F.I.N. -- another rocker from down under -- and Seattle's Actionesse paved the way for the Sniffers to drive it home. Photos from the support bands to come on the blog. Cheers!
