Seattle creates priority parking privileges for musicians un/loading equipment
So it makes sense that the city is testing modified loading zone parking restrictions to accommodate musicians, in loading zones adjacent to clubs. See "City of Seattle creates priority parking for musicians" from MyNorthwest and thanks to NotionsCapital for the tip.

It's a good example of something I need to include in my proposed Parking Policy and Practice Toolbox (see list of innovative practices within this entry).
However, the time limits need to be longer than 15 minutes. It is impressive that the hours of restriction, 4 PM to 7 AM, are set to accommodate musicians, before, during and after their set, when they need to load/unload their equipment.
