THE REDWOOD's 10TH ANNIVERSARY
"Here’s the situation: Redwood’s closing. We’re all sure it’ll become a mixed-use condo with a doggy daycare and pilates studio on the first floor. Capitol Hill’s changing…. Yawn. Celebrate what we have, don’t grieve for what we don’t, at least tonight."

"Organized by curating and promotion company Way & Co., each night will feature performances by four local bands. Adam Way, Way & Co. director and production manager, approached Brooke with the suggestion of commemorating the bar in style... He hand-picked all the bands, and it looks to be a pretty exciting lineup... Showcasing a Seattle-centric bill is only fitting for the business."

SUMMIT BLOCK PARTY
09/18/15 - "4th annual Summit Block Party Raises Over $2K for The Vera Project" -Press Release
"Hats off to the organizers — Adam Way, especially — for making [the fourth annual Summit Block Party] the most seamless to date."
08/26/15 - "Be the block party you wish to see in the world" -Capitol Hill Times
"The fourth annual day of music and art matured, reportedly, in 2015 under new leader Adam Way. 'On the whole, there is a (push) for quality,' Way told CHS, with a wink. 'I don’t want people to feel like the free admission wasn’t worth it.'"
08/21/15 - "CHS Pics - Summit Block Party 2015" -Capitol Hill Seattle
"For the past three years, the Summit Block Party has thrived with a Do-It-Yourself vibe. Local, low-key and totally free, the event provides all the fun of other festivals around the city, but without the humongous ticket price... With both attendance and attention on the block party rising, it’s evolved from a Capitol Hill secret into a well-known summertime staple."
08/05/15 - "Making a Summit Block Party" -Capitol Hill Times (Interview)
"For months, [Way & Co.] work with a team of volunteers to ensure every attendant has a blast. You don’t get the feeling that there’s a rich mogul snickering at us somewhere, rubbing their hands together before diving into a mountain range of gold coins. The celebration’s booths, raffle prizes, stages, food, and more are acquired through the gumption and goodwill of a meritorious network of people who love local art."

"Organizer Adam Way says the show will be one of the most raucous of the month-long festival... 'It allows people who wouldn’t be heard anywhere to be heard,' Way said. 'If Hollow Earth was a person, they would have a heart of gold.'"

"All this month, Seattle-based Hollow Earth Radio (HER) has been earning support for its unique setup via Magmafest 2015 events. Entirely volunteer-run, HER beautifully describes on its website that its 'focus is on found sound, field recordings, forgotten music, local musicians, bedroom recordings, lo-fi demos, dreams, storytelling, and things that feel real.' This Friday’s [Way & Co. Presents] concert exemplifies that MO and then some. Not only will it take place at the Cockpit — essentially Seattle’s Island of Misfit Toys — but the bill includes an unkempt spectrum of sound."

"[Way & Co. presents] the third annual BirthDIY-fest at The Vera Project this weekend, which, in addition to a wicked performance by third-eye-opening rockers Wild Orchid Children, also includes a raffle (with prizes from KEXP, Sonic Boom, and Silver Platters) and a DIY marketplace featuring merch and info booths for over 18 local labels, stores, and organizations. For one day, the disparate strands of Seattle's DIY community will converge at a single point in space and time. Cosmic!"

"BirthDIYfest is an annual party [thrown by Way & Co.] to celebrate and thank everyone involved in Seattle's DIY community... This year's lineup is killer: BOAT, Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground, Feral Children, and more. And they've also got over a dozen tables where you can get information on local labels, artists, and other all-ages clubs."
