Gas Works Park closed Thursday: Sounders fans welcomed as extras

By Athima Chansanchai · May 17th, 2010 · 2 Comments

UPDATE (May 20): Extras/Sounders fans are still invited to be part of “The Last Sound” video from 6 p.m. to midnight, rain or shine. Follow the signs. The Sounders have donated a large but limited amount of team-branded rain-gear on hand in the event that they’re needed.

Also, there will be a hot dog stand on site for the duration of the shoot for extras who
get hungry!

Those who can’t get there right at 5 are still welcome to show up when they can.

Don’t count on going to Gas Works Park Thursday (May 20). A music video of a song dear to Seattle Sounders fans will be shot in the park, during the day and night. Noise will be controlled, but might be louder than normal.

The video’s production coordinator, Vanessa Eng, said flyers will be distributed throughout the park today 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.

Local band Grammatrain will be filming the video for the song, “The Last Sound,” which started being played at Sounders games earlier this year. 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.”
