The Royal Room Collective Music Ensemble
8:00p


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, Chad McCullough, 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.

Sweeter Than The Day
The Robin Holcomb Band
7:30p

Tickets are available now from Stranger Tickets . General admission: $10 adv/ $15 door. Students: $5.00

Dylan RyanFeaturing his volatile and dramatic trio Sand, Sky Bleached is Dylan Ryan's debut album under his own name, but the insistently exploratory Los Angeles-based drummer and composer isn't making a first impression. Ryan is bandstand veteran who's spent the past decade collaborating with an array of galvanizing musicians across a wide array of creative rock, jazz and alternative scenes in Chicago and Los Angeles. His last trip east was highlighted by a much lauded Winter Jazz Festival performance. Sand features Timothy Young, one of the busiest and most versatile guitarist's in Los Angeles. Recently Young has performed with the likes of David Sylvian, Rebecca Pidgeon, John Zorn, Beck, and Fiona Apple.

Sweeter Than The Day perform American Bandstand, the first CD from "Acoustic Zony Mash", later know as Sweeter Than the Day, performed from top to bottom. Come hear the music that generated a lawsuit from Dick Clark!

"...towards a quietly powerful chamber modernism full of eclectic composerly acuent that makes dreamlike reference to jazz, country, folk and hymn-like material. Delightful and original." - Chris Ingham, Mojo (UK)

"...a great showvase for Horvitz's beautiful compositions, his really strange, angular chord progression." - Ned Wharton, NPR's Weekend Edition

American Bandstand's Ben Music, Love, Love, Love, and Forever are among the most beatific melodies you'll hear this year - Christopher Porter, Jazz Times

Robin Holcomb plays Robin Holcomb The Robin Holcomb band performs her 1990 eponymously titled CD from beginning to end. With Tim Young, Wayne Horvitz, Andy Roth and Keith Lowe.

"Ms. Holcomb has done something remarkable here: she has created a new American regionalism, spun from many threads - country rock, minimalism, Civil War songs, Baptist hymns, Appalachian folk tunes, even the polytonal music of Charles Ives. The music that results is as elegantly simple as a Shaker quilt, and no less beautiful." - Mark Dery, The New York Times

"Excellent and baffling, just as it should be." - Andrew Martin, Q Magazine

"...refreshing, gentle, intense, honest, original and just heart-stoppingly beautiful." - Hearsay (UK)

"Hers is an unsettling, utterly original vision." - Entertainment Weekly

"(capable of) summing up the monumental in the simplest of terms, willing to challenge our minds, our ears, and our hearts." - CMJ

”The Bellow Brothers” are John Olufs and Jed Jedrzejewski on guitars and vocals along with the rhythm section of Robin Cady and Bill Shaw on bass and drums. Melodies from the golden age of country and the early days of rock nʼ roll, sung in two part harmony augmented with shimmering guitar accents.

The Gary Minkler Combination: John Stephan, Walt Singleman, Bill Bagley and Marty Vadalabeme, join Gary to perform songs from his new album "Little Trailer Ruby", produced by Conrad Uno.

Flamenco Nuestro: Gustavo Lopez y Amigos / Alchymeia
8:00p


Alchymeia
The practitioners of the ancient art of alchemy often sought to transform or combine a variety of elements. In a similar manner, the members of the ensemble Alchymeia gather folk song ingredients from various cultures and arrange them in new and fascinating ways. The repertoire reflects the varying backgrounds of the ensemble's founding musicians.
Nadia Tarnawsky has been studying Eastern European singing techniques for nearly two decades with Ukrainian singers Mariana Sadowska, Lilia Pavlovska, Albanian singer Merita Halili, and Bulgarian singers Maria Bebelekova and Donka Koleva. She has taught workshops in Ukrainian village-style singing for the Center of Traditional Music and Dance (NYC).
Brandon Vance is a two-time Open U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion and the youngest player ever to attain the national title at age 14. Brandon has performed with numerous Celtic artists including Alasdair Fraser, Natalie Haas, and Carl Peterson.
Nadia and Brandon began performing together in 2008 and in 2010 they enlisted some of Seattle’s finest musicians to create Alchymeia. Recent performance venues include the La MaMa Experimental Theatre Company (NYC), the Center for Traditional Music and Dance (NYC), the Ukrainian Museum (NYC), the Northwest Folklife Festival (Seattle), the Pink Door (Seattle), Columbia City Theatre (Seattle), Cafe Paloma"(Seattle), and the Mandolin Cafe"(Tacoma).

Flamenco Nuestro (Our Flamenco) is a music and dance presentation by Seattle’s newest flamenco project, Gustavo López y Amigos. Led by guitarist Gustavo Alonso López, the group started performing in early 2012. The music is rooted in traditional flamenco, and incorporates elements of jazz, classical, folk, and original composition. Comprised of a diverse, varying selection of musicians and dancers, their sound is unique within Seattle’s local music scene. For this concert at The Royal Room, the group will include singer Erin Lau, dancer Sarah King, percussionists David Carmona and Ahmad Yousefbeigi, and saxophonist Nathan Seder.

Elanh Jordan
8:00p


Elnah Jordan a well seasoned performer and vocalist commenced her career in the streets of San Francisco. Her transition from a street performer to the clubs was expeditious to say the least. San Francisco loved her and rewarded her with a nomination and placement as 1983 Jazz Vocalist of the year.
Elnah performed the role of the legendary Bessie Smith for 2-1/2 years in “The Evolution of the Blues” written and produced by Jon Hendricks of the scat team of Lamburgh, Hendricks and Ross. Later she stared in “Street Dreams” an Off Broadway musical drama which afforded the prestigious Cabaret Gold awards for her performance. She then studied under and worked with Jules Broussard, a very well know sax player. To add to her credits, Elnah has had the honor to open for Gil Scott Heron and Bobby Blue Bland in the San Francisco Club forum.
Elnah moved to the Seattle area in the early nineties, which landed well for re-introduction of her roots in gospel music. The very essence of her inspiration.

9:30p
Crystal Beth & The Boom Boom Band
With the reflexes of a mongoose and the swagger of a leftist John Wayne, Crystal Beth* (aka: Beth Fleenor) spins her own brand of posicore purge-pop-punk-hop: a sweaty trance psychedelic ritual. Expect intense currents of bethnic chanting, propelled by the ferocious beating of the Boom Boom…
*Crystal Beth is a psychoactive stimulant that increases alertness, concentration, and energy, and in high doses, can induce euphoria, enhance self-esteem, and increase libido.

"If I had to guess what this was, without looking at the press kit, I would probably say something like, four guys locked into a studio with all this gear, lots of food, LSD, some pot, and a madman with something new to prove. This one's a keeper!" - Jeff Daniel, Pandemonium

Lushy/ Gigantor/ DJ Vodka Twist
9:00p


It's hard to imagine a band called LUSHY being anything other than fun. Blending spacey, "cocktail-y" sounds from the '60s and '70s with their own offbeat attitude, the band sounds like a vinyl record you might find propped on Austin Powers' mini bar. Even though they've been at it for a decade now, there's a newness in their music that makes you feel like grabbing a drink and seeing where the night goes.
Lushy's website.

GIGANTOR (aka Stiff Upper Lips) plays dancey, sunny old school ska and rock steady.....Seattle style! The rocking horns and rhythms of Gigantor waft a bit of Jamaican breeze into the rainy, chilly clime of Seattle. Led by Lynval Golding, veteran of the UK’s legendary The Specials, impeccably dressed Gigantor disregard the hissing of grungy bounders and deliver a hefty helping of Saucy Brit beat. Seattle scenesters will recognize longtime, familiar fixtures on the stand, such as Saxophonist Andrew Sodt, currently of Lushy and formerly of Tiny Hat orchestra and his counterpart on the trumpet, from Rat City Brass and Tiny Hat Orchestra, Mark Bentz. The keyboards are deftly handled by Don Kenoyer (Lushy, Tiny Hat orchestra). and no caravan of Rockers would be full-length without a trombone, and boneman Zach Davies fills the two toned shoes of this role, while bassist Matt Nims, also in Lushy and Tiny Hat orchestra and drummer Mike Daugherty (Ray Skjelbred and Glenn Crytzer's Syncopators)) complete this most rude of musical aggregations. Don’t forget your dancing shoes, and sing along if the spirit moves you – Gigantor is coming to you. Keep muddling through...

and......DJ VODKA TWIST will move and groove you !!!

Zony Mash
Diminished Men
The Youngs
8:30p


Zony Mash's website.

Diminished Men refocus their influences into something entirely unique. Their jagged, hard-charging approach evokes images of slit jugulars and accelerated heart rates, all the while swathing you in a blissful claustrophobia. Drawing elements of Link Wray, Morricone's dissonant horror scores, gritty noir and Joe Meek's sickly productions, as well as the provocative imagery of filmmakers like Wim Wenders and Jean-Pierre Melville, synthesizing them into something truly organic and original.

If the Captain and Tennille were into dark progressive space rock, they might have really lit the world on fire. Thirty years later the Youngs have emerged to fill the void. Their catchy, well-crafted songs will make us all shed a tear for love and death, Seattle sadcore style. This dynamic duo (a married couple in real life) succeeds in their aim of fearlessly charting the astral regions, telling us moving tales of living and dying on a fucked-up planet like this one, with love as their backseat driver.
Live, the golden voiced Eryn Young sings and plays drums & samples simultaneously, with significant other Tim Young, the accomplished Seattle musician at her side playing guitar & bass pedals and singing simultaneously. It’s like two one-man-bands in one.
