Thursday, April 24th Tae Phoenix CD Release Show with Whitney Monge and Julia Massey
7:00pm
Tickets, $10 adv/ $12 door are available now from Stranger Tickets

Seattle roots-pop singer-songwriter Tae Phoenix will celebrate the release of her sophomore Album, "Outside the Lines". The album was produced and engineered by noted Seattle producer and saxophonist Dave Miner at London Bridge Studios in Seattle. The album was fully fan-funded, with the bill for production costs footed by Seattle pianist, trial attorney, and arts patron Michael Withey, and another $7,000 contributed toward promotional costs via the crowdfunding site, Kickstarter.

The album showcases Phoenix's range, versatility, and prowess as both songwriter and vocalist. The opening track, "Damned Old Flame," warns a younger sister about the dangers of charismatic men, while the story song "Moment I Try" reflects on the limits of what one human being can truly do for another, and the bawdy twelve-bar shuffle "Down & Dirty Way" continues the female blues tradition of making the sexual political through song.

Tae Phoenix will joined by fellow local singer-songwriters Julia Massey and Whitney Mongé.

This Week At The Royal Room
Monday, April 21st The Royal Room Collective Music Ensemble/ SpiceRack Live Recording
8:00pm The Royal Room Collective Music Ensemble
The Royal Room Collective Music Ensemble is a 12-15 piece band featuring Seattle's finest and most innovative improvisers under the direction of composer Wayne Horvitz. The RRCME performs Mr. Horvitz's compositions in a loosely constructed format which uses a combination of on-the-spot (re)arranging and various other techniques, some of which have come to be known as "conduction". Wayne Horvitz first performed in Butch Morris's Conduction Ensemble in 1987 at The New School for Social Research in New York City. Twenty four years later, in the summer of 2011, Horvitz began to experiment with his own approach to Conduction while co-leading an experimental big band with composer John Hollenbeck at Cornish College of the Arts. Horvitz added to Morris' original Conduction symbols, a series of numbers which correlated to specific motifs derived from the compositions. Upon the opening of The Royal Room, Horvitz took the opportunity to form his own big band to perform his compositions utilizing this approach.

Regular members include Beth Fleenor, Steve O'Brien, Al Keith, Sam Boshnack, Ryan Burns, Geoff Harper, Greg Sinibaldi, Jacob Zimmerman, Craig Flory, Eric Eagle, Kate Olson, Naomi Siegel, Jacob Herring and Wayne Horvitz.
Featured guests have included Bobby Previte, Greg Campbell, Stuart Dempster, and Briggan Krauss, Neil Welch and Ivan Artega.

10:00pm SpiceRack
Seattle based guitar/organ/bass/drums quartet records a set of new original music!
Composer/guitarist Tristan Gianola whips out SpiceRack, a quartet of grooving, riffing, ripping and all original music. Bits and pieces of Motown, Funk, Free Improv and Classical music find a place together in Gianola’s music written specifically for SpiceRack, where things open up and anything can get piled on top of some catchy tunes. He is joined by Jake Sele on keys/organ, Nick Lonien on bass and Tommy Whitside on drums.
