Elevator presents an evening at the Royal Room.

A Box in the Sea
Paul Lebel's soundcloud secrecy is thankfully dissipating a bit as he joins us for his Seattle debut. His modular tones evoke other worlds while staying firmly grounded in physical textures.

American Nudism
The solo project of Gabe Guitierrez, guitarist of post-punk outlaws VATS. Ragged and rugged Suicide beats collide with deep passages of tense beauty.

Nico Sophiea
Drone by way of Feldman. Patient music, full of strange, murky shapes and unexpected rhythms.

This Week At The Royal Room
Monday July 27th Bad Luck/ Enso/ Honey Noble
8:00pm
Enso is Gregg Belisle- Chi (guitar) and Brian Kinsella (piano) playing originals, arrangements, and covers inspired by the Jim Hall/Bill Evans duets.

Bad Luck is a 10-year collaboration between Seattle-based musicians Chris Icasiano on drums and Neil Welch on saxophone/electronics. ​Their melodies, improvisations and compositions are constructed from the ground up, creating a band sound much larger than the sum of its parts.

Honey Noble is a singer-songwriter project headed by pianist and vocalist Katie Jacobson. The group (which also includes Chris Icasiano on drums, Abbey Blackwell on bass, Gregg Belisle-Chi on guitar and Ivan Arteaga on clarinet) labels their music as "eccentric improvisitory folk," blending Jacobson's background as a jazz vocalist with her interest in storytelling and lyric writing. Jacobson's quiet melodies and clear vocals accentuate the poetic quality of her contemplative and honest lyrics, bringing the listener images of sweet coriander, flowers in a woman's hair, the black smoke of fire, and a dark starlit night spent on the sea. The songs are stories of memories we wish we had, dreams that haunt our waking lives, and a conflicted life that marries joy and pain almost indistinguishably.

No cover. The musicians are compensated by your donations.
Reservations are available for patrons who are planning to have dinner before and during the show.
Tuesday July 28th Dollargirl/ Honeyville Rascals/ Mannequin BBQ
Dollargirl plays cinematic acoustic folk-pop in the vein of M. Ward and Iron & Wine. Writer Wesley K. Andrews and pianist Patrick McBride have written songs and recorded demos together for five years; this is their inaugural full-set public performance as Dollargirl.
Dollargirl's Soundcloud.

The Honeyville Rascals are a duo of male & female vocals and dueling ukuleles playing everything from vintage jazz, blues & Hawaiian to their own original tunes. Think Fats Waller meets Freddie Mercury and they go to a party with Billie Holiday. Get the picture?

Saturday August 1st Seattle 4Culture Presents Seattle Meets Tokyo: Modern Jazz Connections/ ARCO-PDX
6:30pm: Seattle 4Culture Presents Seattle Meets Tokyo: Modern Jazz Connections
Seattle Meets Tokyo: Modern Jazz Connections is a collaborative improvisation project between Seattle and Tokyo musicians. Featuring Seattle native Kevin McHugh on piano and special guest Akihiko Ando (Tokyo) on alto sax and effects, they are joined by Naomi Siegel (trombone), Geoff Harper (bass) and Evan Woodle (drums). Through original compositions, our group will explore the boundaries between free jazz, Japanese noise and written/improvised forms. This project was supported, in part, by an award from 4Culture.

This event is free to the public

10:00pm: ARCO-PDX
John Berendzen Opens

ARCO-PDX brings you classical orchestral and chamber music with a contemporary attitude. Amplified so you can talk, laugh, drink, dance...just like you would at a rock concert. Yet presenting each piece exactly as written—no watered-down arrangements, no cheap drum track.

Featuring the U.S. premiere of Lamento & Toccata by 90-year-old Russian composer Andrei Eshpai. Plus, the brooding and daring music of Ernest Bloch, Henry Cowell, Dmitri Shostakovich, Arvo Pärt, and Henryk Górecki, whose harpsichord concerto makes death-metal seem like a lullaby. Not your Eine Kleine!

8:30pm: Tina Vernon: NOTE TO SELF, An Evening of Storytelling and Music
A Texas native, Tina Vernon is all too familiar with what it means to forge new frontiers.

The writer/musician/performing artist is an eclectic mix who resides most comfortably at the intersection of bridging and breaking forms. Her debut EP, Flight Risk, pays homage to this gypsy woman’s early beginnings by mixing folk, soul, jazz and rock like you’ve never quite heard them before. Vernon is adept at penning portraits of human life with piercing emotional accuracy, and vocally delivering with all the candor of someone who makes no apologies for who she is or what she’s seen. You can hear in her work varied elements and influences from many of the greats: Sarah Vaughan, Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone, Bill Withers. Although hers is a sound that borrows from everywhere, she finds distinction in the unique quality of her voice and lyrical perspective.
