Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

RESONANT BODIES
Stephanie Richards: trumpet
Andrew Drury: drums and percussion

In Resonant Bodies trumpeter Stephanie Richards and percussionist Andrew Drury mine trumpets and drums at their aural and physical extremes, exploring how sounds interact with each other and with other resonant bodies. Focused listening, spontaneity, and a wealth of experience in a range of genres and media enable the duo to melt down the raw material of sound, infuse it with 21st century sensibilities, and recast it as a hyper-modern drum and bugle corps of two.

MATRIO
James Falzone: clarinets, piano
Ha-Yang Kim: cello
Tom Baker: guitars and electronics
Greg Campbell: drums, percussion, horns

Taking its name from the Japanese word for "the space between two structural parts," Matrio is an improvising collective featuring Greg Campbell on percussion and horns, Ha-Yang Kim on cello, James Falzone on clarinet and piano, and Tom Baker on guitar, theremin, and electronics. With influences ranging from Olivier Messiaen to The Art Ensemble of Chicago, Matrio creates set-long experiences that explore the space between sound, noise, music, and silence.

Local Royalty Show: Warren Dunes feat. Julia Massey, Sidecar, and Tim Kennedy

8:30pm | Doors at 8:00pm

Singer Julia Massey turned to her husband, the rock band frontman for Electric NoNo, Jared Cortese, and said, “it’s time.” Massey, the longtime frontwoman for Julia Massey and the Five Finger Discount, is known for her sweet falsettos and childlike buoyancy. Cortese, who writes intricate electric guitar-based songs, turned to his wife and said, “I think you’re right.” The musical power couple is backed by the marvel known as Dominic Cortese on drums. Dominic has played with Julia and Jared for years in their prior projects and with many others in the Seattle music scene. Now, the trio has formed like a sonic Voltron to play joyous, dance-worthy music with a purpose: the profits from each show the band plays will go toward a cause near and dear to their hearts: finding people homes. Prior recipients have included the Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle, the ACLU and the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project. See Warren Dunes at an Emerald City venue near you and help the cause.

Casa de la Trova hosted by SuperSones ft. Correo Aereo

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

SuperSones play the sublime music known as Son - the acoustic dance music of the Cuban countryside that inspired modern Salsa. Son is a unique blend of Spanish guitars and harmony, Afro-Cuban percussion and swing, call-and-response singing, and trumpet improvisation. From the 1930's in Havana to the present moment, Cuban septets like SuperSones have inspired people around the world to dance and ce...lebrate. SuperSones represent this rich musical tradition with a wide range of classic and original songs in the many genres within the Son family: bolero, cha cha cha, guaracha, and son montuno among others. The group plays songs written by some of the greatest composers of Cuban popular music including Compay Segundo, Miguel Matamoros, Isaac Oviedo, and Arsenio Rodriguez. SuperSones recreate these songs with their own arrangements and improvisations to bring the Son alive in the Pacific Northwest. The group also regularly features original compositions firmly rooted in the Son tradition.

5:30pm | Doors at 5:00pm

All are invited to the 5th Annual Orca K-8 School Open Mic fundraiser! The open mic welcomes Orca community members of all ages and abilities to share a unique talent in front of family and friends.

Featuring:

Savoy Night Owls:
Take a trip back in time with the musical stylings and smoky vocals of The Savoy Night Owls, a Seattle based jazz quintet, specializing in vintage jazz inspired by the American Songbook. You may find yourself nostalgic for a era before your time.

Free Candy:
Free Candy plays a mix of classic blues-based rock covers and some original material. Saxophone and keyboards expand their sound to provide dance-​​able grooves with a fun vibe.

Guardian Alien:
Guy Davis, former bassist and singer of the Seattle underground sensation Sage, and current bassist for Kultur Shock has set his music alive with rock trio Guardian Alien. G.A. blends the dynamics of electrified banjo and concertina with heavy bass and drums. The songs reflect the band’s affinity for unique melodic grooves while the lyrics speak directly to the subconscious.

Guardian Alien is a solid contribution to original Seattle music and the lead instruments of banjo and concertina break sonic barriers by creating sounds you wouldn’t think were possible on traditional instruments.

G.A. has played through out the Northwest, Alaska and Asia and went on an extensive U.S. tour with Eyes Adrift, the band that included Krist Novacelic, Bud Gaugh (Sublime) and Kurt Kirkwood (Meat Puppets). Also noteworthy, Guy M. Davis played bass and sang backups on the 2001 release of “Bayleaf.”

Insect Man:
Lean, clean and bluesy; barbed-wire guitar wound about bittersweet melodies while a ghost of psychedelia stands by. Insect Man formed in 2013 to perform the songs of front-man Mike Brann. Members of Insect Man have previously been in bands such as The Mourning Doves, The Zero Points, The Crows, Bottle of Smoke, Gut Reaction, West Section Line, Aaiiee!! and YBGB."

An Evening with Scott Amendola Trio Ft. Jeff Parker

8:00pm | Doors at 6:30pm

Tickets: $15 adv/dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Beth Fleenor and Wayne Horvitz Duo opening

Scott Amendola Trio w/ Jeff Parker on guitar, and Paul Bryan on electric bass

Scott Amendola, Jeff Parker, and Paul Bryan all met nearly 30 years ago at Berklee College of Music. Musically minded in symmetry, Scott, Jeff, and Paul know how to make 3 sound like one. The trio will embark on music composed by Amendola, some choice covers, and venture into the unknown.

Parker is ideally suited to follow Amendola’s muse wherever it leads. His versatile guitar adapts to his roles in the Chicago Underground Trio and in post-rock group Tortoise, or in projects like the ensemble Isotope 217 that bridge the two. On Lift he conjures a blues shuffle on “Lima Bean” as easily as the rockabilly noir of “The Knife,” which Amendola wrote in tribute to friend and collaborator Jim Campilongo.

“Jeff is just so deep,” Amendola says. “His use of space and harmony and his sonic world are so interesting and unique.” Amendola refers to Shifflett as “the unsung hero” of the group, whose midwestern affability and self-deprecation (he’s from Iowa) combine to camouflage his robust playing. He anchors the band, asserting an organic, grounded acoustic feel when his bandmates venture far out into their electronic excursions.

“Paul’s energy and his unpredictability are always interesting to me,” Amendola says, “He’s extremely patient; he can sit on a line forever and let me and Jeff dance around it, and then inject some idea and completely change everything. But he does it in a way that’s very much about the ensemble and very little about himself.”

Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

How many artists have been praised a “punk rock provocateur,” “jazz vibraphone visionary,” and “percussion virtuoso” in the same sentence? There’s only one: Mike Dillon. Whether through his affiliation with artists like Les Claypool, Primus, Rickie Lee Jones, and Ani Difranco, or collaborations such as Nolatet, Garage a Trois, The Dead Kenny G's, Critters Buggin or bands he has led, including Mike Dillon Band, Mike Dillon's New Orleans Punk Rock Percussion Consortium, Billy Goat and Hairy Apes BMX, the Texas-native has set his own standard for 25 years now. Over the past decade, Mike Dillon has released a number of acclaimed albums, intertwining a range of influences from Zappa-esque eccentricity to Fishbone punk funk, D.C. Go-Go to Milt Jackson-influenced vibraphone majesty.

The current version of the Mike Dillon Band features Bassist Nathan Lambertson and Drummer Brendan Bull.

Commissioned by the I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition, the film aims to not only share this unique story but also inspire action in other landscapes facing similar challenges between wildlife and roads. Seward Park Audubon Center is a proud sponsor of this film, and will host a panel discussion following the screening with the film maker, Washington Department of Transportation, and I-90 Wildlife Bridges Coalition staff.

Mostly Other People Do the Killing

7:30pm | Doors at 6:00pm

Tickets: $15 adv/dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Mostly Other People Do the Killing formed in 2003 shortly after bassist/composer/bandleader Moppa Elliott moved to New York City from Ohio. The original quartet lineup of the band grew into a septet with the 2013 release of “Red Hot”, and the group has existed in several different configurations ever since. 2017 saw the release of both a second septet album “Loafer’s Hollow” as well as the first album by the piano trio version of the group, “Paint.” All of Elliott’s compositions are named after small towns in his native Pennsylvania and explore the intersection of the past 100 years of the jazz tradition and modern improvisation. MOPDTK performs the compositions of Moppa Elliott as well as jazz standards, pop tunes, classical pieces, and free improvisation. They have won both the El Intruoso poll in the “Best Band to see Live” category twice, and DownBeat Magazine’s Critics’ Poll in the “Rising Star Ensemble” category twice. Moppa Elliott appeared in the 2017 Critics’ Poll in three categories: Rising Star bassist, Rising Star composer, and Rising Star arranger.

TROVADORO - Original Cuban Son Music from Seattle

9:30pm | Doors at 9:00pm

Tickets: $10 adv/ $12 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

TROVADORO brings together Seattle's finest players of Cuban Son music to perform original compositions in traditional styles. This group also plays songs by some of Cuba's greatest Son music groups including La Familia Valera Miranda, Dúo Los Compadres and Trío Matamoros. Cuban Son (pronounced 'sone' like 'tone') is the acoustic roots dance music that grew into today's internationally celebrated Salsa. In the tradition of Cuban troubadours new and old, TROVADORO evokes deep currents of the human heart and soul with strings, percussion and song.

TROVADORO is guided by Santiago de Cuba's Kiki Valera and his lifetime of extensive performance, international touring, arranging, recording, and mastery of the Cuban Cuatro. Kiki is the eldest son and director of La Familia Valera Miranda - one of Cuba's most revered families of Son musicians. Justin Maggart and Steve Smith are core members of SuperSones - a traditional Cuban septet that has performed Cuban Son in Seattle and throughout the Pacific Northwest for the last 16 years. Javier Marú brings years of experience playing Trova and Son in Havana, Switzerland and now in Seattle with Trío Cubay and others.

The quartet is TROVADORO's core performance format. The group frequently performs as a quintet with Lalo Bello on Congas and Vocals (Picoso, Polyrhythmics & Trío Cubay). For large venue dance performances, private events or other occasions, additional supporting musicians may include a trumpet player, bassist or singer & percussionist.

TROVADORO began as a collaboration between Justin Maggart and Kiki Valera to compose, arrange and record an album of original songs in traditional Cuban styles and perform them for a variety of audiences in Spring 2017. In June 2015, this project was funded, in part, by a grant from King County 4Culture. TROVADORO also educates diverse communities about Cuban music by leading interactive multi-media concert-workshops for audiences of all-ages.
