Home of the Mighty WurliTzer
On Friday, we went to see West My Friend, a band that Shanie was hosting for the evening. With catchy tunes and playful stage banter, it made for a fun evening. They played in Seattle’s Kenyon Hall – the Home of the Great WurliTzer. In a sense, we were inside of this giant pipe organ. The hall isn’t just the home of this instrument; it is this instrument. It’s a great venue, with playfully funny hosts who make you feel welcome. Popcorn and delicious root bear floats are served for only $1 each. Afterward, we all headed next door for food and drink (can’t live off of popcorn!), and I enjoyed learning more about Eden’s work teaching at a student-centered independent school in Canada – the model of which sounds very familiar to the early California personalized learning schools.
