Tickets: GA: $25 adv/ $30 dos
Under age 30: $15 adv/ $20 dos
Tickets available from: Pacific MusicWorks

The Pacific MusicWorks Underground series aims to take Early Music out of the museum and put it where they think it belongs – in a brewpub for a night out, at wineries for a wine tasting, in your house for a concert with friends, and in great sacred spaces. It is Seattle's alternative Baroque music scene, blending great music with great food, drink, and company, and NEVER taking themselves too seriously.

Elvis Presley. The Beatles. Duke Ellington. Ludwig van Beethoven. Not just musicians, but revolutionaries who disrupted the very fabric of the artistic world around them. Add to the list Arcangelo Corelli, the true first celebrity violinist, whose innovations and cult of personality truly went viral. Renowned baroque violinist Ingrid Matthews joins harpsichordist Henry Lebedinsky for a program of works by Corelli and the composers he influenced, including music from Mexico, Sweden, China, and Russia.

Corelli: Sonata TBD
Zipoli: Suite in G minor
Roman: Sonata in D (Sweden)
Anonymous: Sonata in F (Mexico)
Madonis: Sonata in A minor (Russia)
Pedrini: Sonata in G minor (China)

Rat City Brass

8:00pm | Doors at 7:00pm

Erik Reed - Trumpet
Sean McGee - Trumpet
Eric Kehoe - Trombone
Sara DeBell - Keyboards
D. Fillius - Guitar
Ericka Kendall - Bass
Steve Smith - Drums

In 2009, Seattle trumpeter Mark Bentz had an idea. He would put together a band that could recreate the sound of "Whipped Cream"-era Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass.

An octet of Alpert acolytes assembled, eager to put the plan into action: two trumpets, trombone, guitar, keys, bass, percussion, and drums. Ladies and gentlemen, this is Rat City Brass.

The band pays earnest homage to the suave yet playful music of the Tijuana Brass, taking audiences not only to the dancefloor of the 1960s, but to Herb Alpert's imaginary border-town cantina where classic American pop gets a stiff shot of tequila, loosens its collar, and decides that Saturday night starts right now.

Rat City Brass calls their music "mid-century instrumental pop." Your parents might call it "easy listening." Those who've witnessed RCB in action call it fun.

Django's Birthday

6:00pm | Doors 5:00pm

Gypsy jazz musicians from around Puget Sound will celebrate Django Reinhardt’s 109th birthday with an evening of music. The party will be hosted by two bands, Victor Horky’s Silk Road Swing and Ranger and the ‘Re-Arrangers’, plus other top Seattle Gypsy Jazz musicians will make guest appearances.

Django was an itinerant Gypsy who earned international acclaim in the 1930’s. Many of his compositions became jazz classics and he is considered one of the top guitar soloists of all time. Duke Ellington referred to Django as “the most creative jazz musician to originate anywhere outside the United States.” Decades later, Jerry Garcia said, “Even today, nobody has really come to the state that he was playing at…nobody plays with the whole fullness of expression that Django had.”

Guitarist Victor Horky brings the swingin' Gypsy jazz tunes of Django Reinhardt to life with his band Silk Road Swing, and especially loves to play for dancers. Ranger and the “Re-Arrangers” evoke the spirit of a Paris cafe and the raucous energy of a Gypsy campsite with their version of Gypsy jazz. They feature Ranger Sciacca on violin and have twice performed at North America’s top gypsy jazz festival, Djangofest Northwest

The evening will feature a mix of swing standards, traditional Gypsy melodies, and the music of Django Reinhardt. Says Sciacca: “Our goal is to make this a really fun show, featuring as many great Gypsy jazz players as we can.”

Professor Sweater
Matt Sizer - guitar and lead vocals
Scott Sparrowhawk - bass and backup vocals
Mikey Wellner - drums

In the summer of 2011, Matt and Mikey were able to sift through the vast Seattle music scene to discover that each other’s musical styles resonated. After years of collaboration and a few projects under their belts, the duo established their own unique sound, merging elements of orchestral jazz, soul, and dance rock. Late summer of 2016, Scott (Sparrowhawk) decided to bring his expansive musical knowledge and talent to the Seattle music scene. Through word of mouth and the use of homing pigeons, these two musical journeys combined... Thus, Professor Sweater was manifested to bring soulful indie rock to the masses.

Marina's original tune "Self Love" was featured on Mo' Jam Mondays on Band in Seattle.

Brendan McGovern has always been interested in music that blends genres. That and his recent explorations into the flute have led him to prepare the Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano Trio, by French pianist/composer Claude Bolling. In seven distinct movements, the suite draws inspiration primarily from the Baroque era of Classical music combined with swing and bebop from jazz. Brendan will be performing with a brand new band for the occasion, featuring Remy Morritt on drums, Marina Christopher on bass, and his one and only father, Monty McGovern on piano. This is Brendan’s first gig as a leader since returning from his travels in Southeast Asia and beyond. He hopes you can make it out to enjoy this much beloved piece.

Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Advance tickets for this show have sold out, but there will be a limited number of tickets available at the door on a first come first serve basis.

Named "Best Folk Act 2017" by Seattle Weekly, Tomo Nakayama has consistently created music that is complex, nuanced, and emotionally compelling. His decade of work both as a solo artist and as frontman in his chamber-pop band Grand Hallway has been praised by NPR, New York Times, and KEXP. Known for his crystalline high-tenor voice, intricate fingerpicking, cinematic production style, and simple, poetic lyrics imbued with warmth and humanity, Tomo’s songs have drawn comparisons to Paul Simon, Elliott Smith, and Jeff Buckley. He has also composed music for film and television, and starred as an actor opposite Ellen Page in Lynn Shelton’s Sundance Grand Jury nominated movie “Touchy Feely”. He was Artist in Residence at Seattle’s Town Hall, where he wrote and recorded (with Yuuki Matthews of the Shins) his solo debut album, Fog On The Lens, which spent 8 weeks on the CMJ Top 200 and was named “Album of the Month” by Seattle Met. He has shared the stage with Cornelius, Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie), Jeremy Enigk (Sunny Day Real Estate), Laura Gibson, Tom Brosseau, Damien Jurado, LAKE, Mirah, Fruit Bats, Sera Cahoone, and many others. His self-produced second solo album, Pieces of Sky finds Nakayama venturing further into the digital chamber folk sound of his debut album while incorporating ambient synths, dream pop atmospherics and analog drum machines into the mix. They reflect his experiences of touring solo across the US, Japan, and Europe, and a year spent busking and people watching at Seattle Tacoma International Airport.

Vivian Leva and Riley Calcagno are tapping into the deepest parts of American music, taking old songs that have seldom been heard and presenting them next to their own timeless and visceral originals. When they are not performing as duo, they’re often found sitting knee to knee, playing under the canopy of trees at fiddle festivals across the country, such as the gathering where they met in June of 2016. Across any campground, or concert venue, the echos of their vibrant and magnetic harmonies ring out.

Leva, of Lexington, Virginia grew up playing and performing with her parents, Carol Elizabeth Jones and James Leva, learning traditional songs from their sources and honing her rhythmic guitar style. This past June, Vivian recorded her debut album Time is Everything in close collaboration with Calcagno during an inspired session at Studio 808A in the small town of Floyd, VA. She will be releasing this album of original music on March 2nd, 2018 on Free Dirt Records.

Riley, of Seattle, WA spent his earlier years playing with the widely recognized band The Onlies, described as “masterful” and “deliciously well-crafted” (Kithfolk) and developing his own distinct authenticity on the fiddle and banjo.

Together, Vivian and Riley have toured across the country, in living rooms and concert halls. As individuals, they have shared the stages with and played, both nationally and internationally, in the bands of Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens, The Lost Tribe Of Country Music, and Bruce Molsky to name just a few. To this collaboration they bring both the steady hands of experience and a refined taste for American music, yet still a youthful abandon that can’t be forced. In 2018, they will be on tour internationally to support Vivian’s new release and bring their distinct brand of old-time and country to a festival, hall, bar, or fireplace gathering near you.
