8:00pm | Doors at 7:45pm: Visual Musician & Friends | Feat. Josh Rawlings Trio
Tickets: $15 - $30 sliding scale
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

An enthralling fusion of live music from the Josh Rawlings Trio and rhythm tap dance by Jessie Sawyers, aka Visual Musician. From Weezer to jazz standards and everything in between, the concert will feature improvised collaborations as well as choreography performed throughout the evening by Jessie's tap students. Special guests to be announced!

A Review from Josh Rawlings Trio's newest album, Swell: "The star of the album is what the Josh Rawlings Trio does on a Jobim cover with tap dancer, second percussionist Sawyers. [...] He combines methods that are standard (Kessler on drums) and unconventional (Sawyers tap dancing) for a modern, crowd-pleasing effect. Together, the two create a ripping wave for the younger, restless listeners hooked on a beat. It’s one of the best Jobim covers anyone’s done in this century."

Stevens has toured the world with her band and collaborated with the likes of: Brad Mehldau, Esperanza Spalding, Billy Childs, Ambrose Akinmusire, Jacob Collier, Vijay Iyer and many others.

The Bobby Previte Trio: Featuring:
Bobby Previte - Drums
Mike Gamble - Guitar
Fabian Rucker - Sax

Bobby Previte’s first stage appearance came in 1956 at the Niagara Falls Talent Show, where, guitar in hand, and adorned in an over-sized suit, he belted out a solo rendition of Elvis Presley’s ‘Hound Dog.’

Eight years later, thinking drumming might be a good way to get girls, he fashioned a bass drum from a rusted garbage can, a kick pedal from a wire coat hanger wedged between two pieces of linoleum and a rubber ball stuck on top, tom toms from upside-down trash bins, cymbals from aluminum pie plates suspended on plungers, and a box of loose junk for a snare – then practiced for a year in his dark basement with a lone spotlight shining on him before eventually starting a band, the “Devil’s Disciples.” But when they finally got a job at the church he was fired for not having ‘real’ drums. Seeking revenge, he took a job as a paperboy, saved every penny, and a year later bought the drum kit he still uses today in concerts all over the world.

Strolling in the East Village one bright afternoon, he peered inside a limo stuck in traffic (crosstown) and suddenly found himself face to face with Jimi Hendrix. Thinking fast, he unfurled the poster of Jimi he had fortunately just acquired, then looked on in astonishment as Hendrix smiled and flashed him the peace sign.

All the rest, as they say, is noise.

Wednesday, June 21st Origami Ghosts // Smashie Smashie // The Ram Rams / Funk Church with High Pulp
7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm: Origami Ghosts // Smashie Smashie // The Ram Rams

What is antifolk? Irreverent pop? Twee? Seattle's Origami Ghosts are amoebas of music: they are genre-bending. The tunes are soulful punk jams crafted by Seattle, WA’s own Jean Paul de Bellevue: an existential alt-folk-rock lad.

Origami Ghosts can be one -- JP Scesniak -- or many. The latter currently combines the songwriting of Scesniak with the sweet synth and flute playing of Cassandra Wulff, and the blazing cello and drum shreds of Jacob Leavitt and Ben Kendall respectively. Mind-bending hypno-folk it is.

The Ram Rams are a female-fronted punk band from Seattle. They've been rocking dive bars around the greater Puget sound since 2010. Their throw back 1990s punk sound and girl power themes may remind you of the Donnas or Cub.
