Electric Tea Garden
Hint: Radio! Radio!
Two Words: Sound Lounge
Sounds Like: Bliss…
There have been many incarnations of Electric Tea Garden – ETG Seattle, The Space, OseaO Internet Radio, The Gallery of the Senses and even known simply by the only marker on the building, The Artificial Limb Factory. However you experienced the confluence of art, dance and music that was created in the unassuming, unlikely upper floor of a Capital Hill light industrial building, this institution of the Seattle - Capitol Hill Music and Culture Scene has NOT hung up its hat!
With a tasty redux in the works, we have been reminiscing about unforgettable moments in radio broadcasts, music sets, poetry slams, art shows, and performances by amazing people who have influenced the scene or gotten their start at Electric Tea Garden, calling us “home” since our beginnings in the Fall of 1997.
Did anyone see Reggie Watts play here back in the late 90s? And someone recently said that the official Laptop Battles started at ETG. Can that be true?!
While we wax poetic on the good old days and look forward to an announcement soon, we leave you with the sights and sounds of some Electric Tea Garden Live Events as well as give you a teaser of the pending launch of our Online Radio Station!!!

You had your time, you had the power
You’ve yet to have your finest hour
- Freddie Mercury of Queen
