Last night was a pre-grand opening that over 13,000 of us lucky few got to witness the insides of the new state-of-the-art arena with a concert by two of Seattle's well known rock bands the Foo Fighters and openers Death Cab For Cutie. A concert originally planned as an private appreciation for the many involved in the 3 year organization/building of the arena also turned into a benefit with limited public ticket sales called "A New Way Home" that sent portions of the ticket sale proceeds to benefit both the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project and Real Rent Duwamish.
