Tickets: $15 – Tickets for early show available now from Stranger Tickets.
Tickets available for late show available now from Stranger Tickets.

"The band is fantastic, as one would expect, given the immense talent on stage. Darren Loucas is especially good. The addition of Kathy Moore to the lineup was inspired, her chops are remarkable. Andy Stoller holds down the fort in John Paul Jones fashion while Mike Stone’s feet on the kick drums were truly made of Led, and he often sounded like he had four sticks on the trap." Omar Willey The Seattle Star!

The current band configuration boasts a powerhouse of singers; Sarah Rudinhoff (2004 recipient of The Stranger Genius Award; also seen at 5th Avenue, Seattle Rep); Jen Ayers (Honey Tongue; Dream On, Teatro ZinZanni's Return to Paradise in 2013); Zach Davidson (Vendetta Red; featured singer with the prestigious Seattle Rock Orchestra). It really takes three diverse voices to do justice to the vocal range of the young Robert Plant.

Thee House of Thee UnHoly band musicians include, Andy Stoller (appearances on "The Tonight Show," "David Letterman," "The Grammys”, touring with Tracy Chapman) on bass; Ryan Burns (played with members of Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Guns and Roses), on guitar; Darren Loucas (who's shared stage with Bill Frisell and Ian Moore, on guitar Katy Moore (performed with Thaddeus Turner), and Mike Stone (played with members of Soundgarden; REM; Pearl Jam) on drums.

Monday, October 27th Druhá Tráva
7:30pm
Tickets $10
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Famed on both sides of the Atlantic for its "Czechgrass" fusion of acoustic, bluegrass, folk and rock, Druhá Tráva is the foremost band to emerge from the flourishing Czech bluegrass scene. Its virtuoso musicians can satisfy the most hardcore fans with scorching versions of traditional bluegrass standards. But as the band´s name "Second Grass" implies, DT reaches far beyond the classic bluegrass genre for inspiration. The band uses American roots music as a starting point for a synthesis of jazz, pop, folk and even classical motifs, transforming an iconic American idiom into a richly textured, highly personal statement.
DT was formed in 1991 by the influential singer-songwriter Robert Krestan, multi-instrumentalist Lubos Malina and other veterans of the acoustic music scene that had long thrived in Czechoslovakia. Krestan´s original songs -- renowned for their enigmatic, at times provocative, lyrics -- make up most of the band´s repertoire, and they and Krestan´s raw, gritty vocals set the band apart.
