Every year we find a new location for Smash Putt! and we’ve come to the sober realization that the building we’re in this year is most definitely haunted. We certainly are not a group prone to belief in the occult, but a series of undeniably odd events have left us with absolutely no doubts. For our finale year, we are located in a 120 year old building that was originally a hotel for transients, sailors, and prospectors trouncing through Seattle in the midst of the Klondike gold rush.

Weeks ago, while we were first installing Smash Putt, we began to encounter a series of hard to explain events. First there was Max, one of our builders, who insistence that heard whispers whenever we left him alone in the venue. And then we had several instances of some our machines starting up in the middle of the night and run even when not connected to any power at all, a state which persists until the observer would approach to within twenty paces. Myriad staffers have had cold flashes and the feeling of being watched. Finally, over this last weekend, Jon Darby witnessed a most strange vision while he worked alone in the dead of night, doing some routine repair work. Jon turned to find himself in the company of a doll, again twenty paces away, seemingly levitated 3 foot off the ground and looking directly at him. When he dropped his drill, a not-quite childlike laugh came from the not-quite doll. The doll then evaporated as Jon approached to investigate.

Ok, we admit that we’re not the most sober of eye witnesses. But at this point, enough staff members have witnessed enough weird shit that we feel the need to ask for your help. Please let us know if you meet with the face of the unknown while you’re attending Smash Putt! And please share any photos or recordings that might capture our ghostly visitors!
We invite you to come and hunt this apparition, we don’t know if it’s friendly.

We’ve been fortunate to collaborate with them year after year! PHRA are among the few people in Seattle that show care, respect, and love to drug users otherwise stuck in a system that often seems to complicity add a death sentence to the penalties already meted out for drug use. We couldn’t be more proud to work with such a pioneering group of heroes. Nothing but love here!

Dear dear friends, Smash Putt is indeed be departing forever in April, but Seattle is full of amazing people that inspire us. In our last weeks with you, we’re trying to shed a spotlight on some of the amazing people that have inspired us and continue to carry the candle of everweird in these dark dark times.

Lo! Let us now talk about Chaotic Noise Marching Corps! CNMC is a band of freak-flag flying darlings that bleeped and thumped their way into our hearts. A marching band that can trace its DNA back to the founding of all anarcho-political-agitprop-modern-art marching mayhem in Seattle but whose basic fun loving verve keeps their presentation so very fresh and energized! You just cannot lull in the back of the room bobbing your head like a typical disaffected seattleite when Chaotic takes to the floor; indeed, you are forced to bound, dance, and covert with frivolity and vigor to their transcended merriment!

Frequenters of Smash Putt have undoubtedly rejoiced at some point to one of Chaotic Noise’s ludd-drump-bashing sets as they descend upon our humble little venue like a plague of merry-prankster locust; filling our skies with joy and reckless festivity while sucking dry our secret store-caches of beer and whiskey. These beloved scamps will wrestle you into an embrace while they lift your cocktail right out from under your nose. A fine plague to host, a fine plague to host indeed!
Many people are not clued into the fact that the bar at Smash Putt has operated in benefit of many lovely local nonprofit groups. It’s one of the best things about Smash Putt! The bar these last few weeks has operated in benefit of Chaotic Noise Marching Corps, and we would like to thank everyone that has bought a drink for helping to keep Seattle an exciting place full of amazing people. Next week, the bar will operate in benefit of People’s Harm Reduction Alliance! We’ll talk about PHRA in the next email!
