Northwest Dance & Music Venues

California and Fauntleroy
West Seattle, Washington

Kilroy’s was located in West Seattle at the corner of California Ave. & Fauntleroy. Many bands played there over the years, including REDLINE  (Maybe we are the only ones that will admit it!).

The first time we played there on a Friday night, our drummer got arrested while parked outside, and we “ hired” a drummer from the audience; a beginner, and barely adequate. Next night our drummer made it on time and never missed a gig there again.

Most memorable was the burley bouncer who every night just before closing yelled “suck em’ up, it’s hotel no tell time’.
