Christina Rees and Thomas Feulmer, organizers of last weekend's Modern Ruin show inside the shell of the former Washington Mutual box on Greenville Ave. slated for razing, send word: The event has caught the attention of American Public Media's Marketplace producers. Matter of fact, Christina spoke with host Kai Ryssdal for tonight's show, which airs on KERA-FM (90.1) at 6:30 p.m. But if you'd like to hear the show right now, well, no need to wait. A couple more photos after the jump.
According to Christina, some 600 people filed through the Modern Ruin that was a WaMu building during Saturday night's opening.
