Fabled Seattle music venue Moe’s Mo’Roc’N Cafe opened in January of 1994. The building was originally a Salvation Army warehouse, and was bought by Graham Graham, Eric Shirley, and Jerry Everard. Most music venues were in Belltown at the time and Moe’s was one of the first venues to make its home on Capitol Hill which even at the time, sat in a location thought by many to be in the middle of nowhere as far as nightlife goes. One thing Moe's had going for it was that it had one of the best sound systems in town and was designed as a music venue with a bar instead of a bar turned music venue. Throughout Moe's mere four year existence, they hosted many seminal bands before they were larger than life including Modest Mouse, Sunny Day Real Estate, Presidents of The United States of America, 7 Year Bitch, and The Flaming Lips just to name a few. Moe’s Mo’Roc’N Cafe hosted its last show in June 1998 and about ten years later, reopened its doors as Neumos (new Moe's - get it?) Crystal Ball Reading Room in February of 2004. This design celebrates the infamous clown logo that greeted attendees of Moe's and complimented the creepy sideshow circus vibe that made up the space's eclectic decor.
