American Mary is the perfect pre-destination when you want to find Seattle’s best marijuana for Seattle’s best tribute night of the year. Not only does the name, American Mary sound like a song title from The Band, it makes for easy UW weed shopping as American Mary puts you just a quick walk away from the Neptune Theater, which hosts this superb annual event.
The Last Waltz was made famous in the concert film by Martin Scorsese that captured Americana forerunners, The Band’s, final performance. It wasn’t just The Band, fronted by Robbie Robertson and held down by Levon Helms on the drums (and occasional vocals) that made this concert so memorable.
The night included guest appearances from a group of ‘60s superstars who’ve forgotten more about great weed than we’ll ever know. Performers ranging from Bob Dylan to Neil Young to Ringo Starr sat in with the Canadian/ American supergroup and jammed to high heaven.
So why not celebrate Ringo with a Strawberry Fields Pre-roll, a .6 gram Hybrid that will take you straight up Cripple Creek? Or munch a pre-show Snowball with 9.8% THC — as legend has it there were plenty of “snowballs” backstage at the original show. Or take in “The Weight” of one of American Mary’s fine strains of heavy Indicas.
The Last Waltz tribute night features a long list of diverse Seattle performers, some of whom know a thing or two about great Seattle weed we’d imagine. And you can expect the audience to be an “elevated one” as these seasoned local artists bring to life tracks your parents grooved to on AM radio back when they called it grass, man.
This is also a night of the highest revelry you can feel good about, as all proceeds from the show go to support NW Harvest.
