Hotel Max to Debut Superfuzz: A Weekly Mashup of Music and Local Spirits in Seattle
Beginning April 3, 2014, Hotel Max is inviting guests and locals to start the weekend early each week with Superfuzz – a happy hour happening every Thursday in the hotel’s art-filled lobby. Each week from 6 to 9 p.m., Seattle’s home away from home for the creatively inclined will spin 90’s-inspired sets while Miller’s Guild, the hotel’s new restaurant, serves up tempting snacks and creative cocktails featuring the city’s best craft distillers.
Hotel Max is known for its love for all things local and Superfuzz, like the free daily craft beer hour and Sub Pop records in the fifth floor guestrooms, is an example of the hotel’s dedication to local culture. The event takes its name from Superfuzz Bigmuff, Mudhoney’s 1988 debut EP on Sup Pop. The album was named after two of the band's favorite guitar effects pedals: the Univox Super-Fuzz and the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff. These helped provide the band's iconic ‘dirty’ sound. That unforgettable raw sound became the signature of Seattle’s grunge scene, during Superfuzz at Hotel Max, DJs will use it as a jumping off point for musical mashups. Those slated to play during Superfuzz in April and May include: DJ Triple9, Bamboo Beats, DJ Marc Sense and Joey Roxville.
During the first month of Superfuzz, Miller’s Guild will be serving up tempting creations made with sprits from Seattle craft distillery Sun Liquor. Sips will include The Silver Fox, a combination of Sun Liquor vodka, Cocchi Americano, pear and fennel shrub, lemon and grapefruit bitters ; The Superfuzz Superfizz made with Sun Liquor Hedgetrimmer gin, Boylan’s Orange Soda and lime juice; and the Rummy Tub which features Sun Liquor rum, Cocchi Americano, Amargo Valet, Scrappy’s Lemon Bitters, Angostura Bitters and a brandied cherry. All three cocktails will be priced at $7 in April and available only during Superfuzz in the hotel’s lobby. In future months, Miller’s Guild will feature spirits from other distilleries in cocktails created especially for Superfuzz. Miller’s Guild will also offer affordably priced bites during Superfuzz that include Homemade Pretzel with Beer Cheese ($7), Steak Tartare on Toast ($6) and Homemade Foccacia with Whipped Lardo ($5).
There is no cover for Superfuzz at Hotel Max. The event is open to the public. Featured DJs and drinks can be found at www.hotelmaxseattle.com/superfuzz.
