When will you be here? You can check the online listings in the two local alt papers:

www.thestranger.com/seattle/EventSearch…

http://www.seattleweekly.com/calendar/

Check web sites of nearby downtown venues the Showbox, The Triple Door (my favorite), and The Crocodile. If nothing interests you at those venues look up for shows on Capitol Hill at Neumos and Chop Suey or in Ballard at The Tractor and the Sunset Tavern. There are few bigger theaters that sometimes have great rock shows. Check out what's playing at The Paramount, The Moore and The Neptune on their web site:

Here is a guide on some of the major live music venues in Seattle.

tripadvisor.com/Travel-g60878-c176204/Seattl…

A lot of venues have eclectic bookings so hip hop, various kinds of rock, pop, roots etc will be mixed together. The club venues that are closest to you (.4 mi) are the Showbox and the Hard Rock Cafe (near Pike Place Market). The Crocodile and Rendevous/Jewel Box Theater ( to the north in Belltown) and Neumo's/Barboza (East on Capitol Hill) are about .8-.9mi. The Showbox, Crocodile and Neumos (the successor of Moe's Mo'Roc'N Café (which just celebrated their 20th anniversary) are classic Seattle venues. Chop Suey (just a couple blocks beyond Neumos) also has rock shows. At just a little over a mile north of your hotel (maybe 1.1-1.2 mi.) in the South Lake Union to East Lake area El Corazon has a lot of rock. A couple blocks beyond El Corazon the Black Lodge (at LoFi performance gallery) has some good shows as well.

The article lists most of the major venues but the list often changes and there are a lot more places that do periodic live music. Those shows will be captured in listings on sites like the Stranger.

If you let us know when you are coming we can scout out other options that you might enjoy like festivals or other special events. And if you want to get out to the neighborhoods like Ballard or Fremont or the U.District or Columbia City there are some notable music venues in each.
