Tickets: $10 advance/ $12 at the door
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Kaeli Earle currently attends Berklee College of Music, writing songs and playing shows with her band in Boston. She returns frequently to Bellingham and SF to tour and play house concerts; her music is a mixture of soul, jazz and rock.

Katie Kuffel is a composer and musician based in Seattle, Washington. Her first full-length album, Pearls, was released in October of 2015 after a successful Kickstarter campaign. Her first EP, Animal Pragmatist, was released in 2013.
Katie’s songwriting is both innovative and thoughtful, with a contemporary sound that draws from blues, jazz, and folk music as well as her training in classical cello and jazz piano. An openly queer artist, she explores concepts of sexuality and femininity throughout her works.

A lanky, queer, flat-picking, operatically trained Soprano gone rogue; Lana McMullen is bringing something to West Coast venues that even the talent-saturated Seattle music scene isn't sure what to do with. Her enormous silk-spun voice and cut-to-the-core insightful songwriting are featured amidst lavish 4-part vocal harmony in her debut alt-Americana album, Traveling Light.

8:00pm | Doors at 7:00pm: Zony Mash/ The Robin Holcomb Band
Tickets: $12 advance/ $15 at the door
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Zony Mash made its debut in late 1995 as the unofficial house band at the OK Hotel in Seattle, where the guys honed their chops with months of weekly gigs. In Zony Mash you´ll hear a wide variety of influences, including sixties-style psychedelic rock, the blues and definitely some sounds that could only be described as being from outer space. All of this was amalgamated into something completely original. Although named after a tune by The Meters, Zony Mash was nevertheless not a Meters tribute band. Although Zony Mash drew heavy inspiration from the past, they never succumbed to derivative nostalgia. Imagine instead a uniquely modern, unpredictable take on a Fillmore-era groove and a bandleader bent on pushing his music in new directions. In the end though, it´s Wayne´s unique harmonic sense and songwriting that set Zony Mash apart.

Zony Mash is:
Wayne Horvitz, Hammond B-3 and Keyboards
Timothy Young, Guitar
Keith Lowe, Bass
Andy Roth, Drums
