Gas Works Park will be closed this Thursday during the day and night for a music video shoot, our sister site Fremont Universe reports. Noise will be controlled, but might be louder than normal.
Local band Grammatrain will be filming the video for the song “The Last Sound,” which is the Sounders FC’s anthem. Eng said the video will be mostly performance based and that the location was chosen because it’s “iconic of Seattle without being touristy. It has an edgier look that works with a rock band.” Looks like they’ll get some very Seattle weather too — the forecast is for a high of 54 with a 60% chance of showers.
The video’s production coordinator, Vanessa Eng, said flyers will be distributed throughout the park to give people notice of the shooting, which will take place in three main sections of the park – the fenced and un-fenced areas, as well as the hill.
Grammatrain’s recruiting people to be in the video on their website, where they also reveal that comedian/”The Price is Right” host/part owner of the Sounders Drew Carey got the ball rolling for this music video.
UPDATE: From 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., those who want to be extras can show up at the park. Follow the signs. Most extras will be in the covered area until they’re needed. They won’t get paid for this, but they’re free to nibble on the food provided on the set. They will be used for a large crowd scene while the band is playing on the hill. Everybody should look like Sounders fans.Tweet
