Betsy Olson Band-
Betsy Olson is a Seattle based blues/rock musician pulling influences from Led Zeppelin, Bonnie Raitt, Junior Kimbrough and Jimi Hendrix. She plays in a 4-piece band with Sera Cahoone on drums, Rebecca Young on bass and Moe Provencher on rhythm guitar and harmonica.

Casey Neill & The Norway Rats-
The music of Casey Neill & The Norway Rats combines high energy rock rave-ups and haunting lush acoustic reveries built around melodic narrative songwriting. The Norway Rats are a collective of Portland indie all star players whose credits include The Decemberists, Eels, Viva Voce and more. Neill has been touring with the band and solo throughout the USA, Japan, and Europe for more than a decade, performing his songs at venues such as Town Hall in New York, San Francisco's Great American Music Hall, and the Newport Folk Festival. The new Norway Rats record Subterrene is a major leap forward for the band that No Depression calls "a milestone in Neill and company’s trajectory thus far" while Rolling Stone says " (Neill's) songs mask their complexities beneath a simple, singalong-worthy surface... these swimming waters have serious depth."

About our guests:

CHANTEL PRAT
Chantel Prat is faculty in the UW Department of Psychology and at the Institute for Learning and Brain Sciences, with appointments in the Neuroscience graduate program, at the Institute for Neuroengineering, at the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering, and in the Department of Linguistics. Dr. Prat’s research investigates the nature of biological constraints on information processing, with an emphasis on the neural correlates of individual differences in complex cognitive abilities such as language. Her goal is to better understand the mind-brain relationship at the level of the individual. To do so, her current research employs the combination of functional neuroimaging, electroencephalography, transcranial magnetic and direct current stimulation, neurofeedback training, and behavioral paradigms. She has used the foundations of this research to investigate new technologies for decoding and encoding meaningful information into human brains, as applied in brain-to-brain interfacing paradigms – like Telepathic Tetris.

ERIN JORGENSEN
Erin Jorgensen is a Seattle-based marimbist and musician. Her love of the unique and beautiful properties of the marimba has led to a diverse artistic life with performances in art spaces, concert halls, rock clubs, and unexpected performance spaces all over the city, as well as a US tour opening for indie band Built to Spill as part of an electric marimba/guitar duo. Her musical style and interest ranges from Bach to electronica to movie soundtracks to pop covers. In addition to performing, she has produced new-music concerts in Seattle including a sold-out show of Arvo Pärt at On the Boards and the recent Cheating, Lying, Stealing featuring new music by American composers at Washington Hall with cellist Rose Bellini.

Joe Casalini, Mark Lutwak, and Evan Davis: An evening of jazz

Forró Night with En Canto & Dudu Fuentes

9:00pm | Doors at 8:30pm

Tickets: $12 adv/$15 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

A multi-ethnic, female-led seven-piece, En Canto's world pop music—a combination forró, samba, and choro-inspired originals and reimagined covers of classic Brazilian hits—commands attention and inspires movement. “We love this music because of its compositional brilliance, its original grooves, and its revolutionary nature ... its roots in post-colonialism, in cultural battles for class and racial equality,” Accordionist Jamie Maschler, explains. "Why wouldn’t it also inspire gender-equality?"

Playing primarily in North American venues, En Canto currently channels its fierce independence into challenging stereotypes while also helping audiences expand their comfort zones. “We make people dance,” as drummer Adam Kozie puts it “We routinely open our concerts to a room full of shy, awkward faces, and we close them to a sweat-drenched melee of bodies and smiles. We experience real joy when we play these songs, and people feel that, and they respond in kind, regardless of whether they understand the words or know the ‘right’ dance moves. It was the same for each us at one point when we first heard Luis Gonzaga or Gilberto Gil—we were provoked and then captured by the music, and we feel honored to be able to offer our own interpretations of it.”

Please note: Forró Night with En Canto and dance class included with Brazilian dance instructor Lara Diniz.

Learn the basics or try some new steps with Lara then enjoy dancing to live music with En Canto!

Featuring:
Adriana Giordano - Vocals
Jamie Maschler - Accordion
Gabe Hall-Rodrigues - Accordion
Meese Agrawal Tonkin - Flute
Adam Kozie - Drums
Michael Withey - Piano
Michael Catts - Bass

Sandi Fernandez and The Beacon Hill-Billies & The Winter Shakers, a concert to benefit Mount Baker Preschool

5:30pm | Doors at 5:15pm

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

Advance tickets can only be purchased online. We do not sell advance tickets at the venue.

Sandi Fernandez and The Beacon Hill-Billies & The Winter Shakers concert to benefit Mount Baker Preschool!

Singing tunes in a special all ages matinee performance. Wholesome goodness including catchy tunes, Molly Moons ice cream, raffle baskets, and dancing.

Sandi Fernandez is a singer songwriter currently based in Seattle, WA. Her powerful raw voice and catchy melodies deliver toe tapping grooves to her audiences. Influenced by folk music of the 60s, 90s alternative music, and modern indie music; her style is reminiscent of artists such as The Decemberists, First Aid Kit, and Neutral Milk Hotel.

She draws upon the deep connection with her family to write music that reflects the love and challenges that come from these formative relationships. Her music explores the pain of loss, the beauty of love, and the importance of home. She wraps it all up into a melody driven belting style of Americana music.

Seattle-based band, The Winter Shakers, is like a stash of priceless art works composed by colorful crayon box. The group is the smile of the Mona Lisa overcome with birthday ice cream and icing. The members write the best songs you haven’t heard, rich with a lilt and pounce you’ve known your whole life. Their music a mighty mix of majesty, mayhem.

The band’s central hearth is front man, Jeremy Shanok. A masterful lyricist with a knack for both comedic and heartwarming timing. He is the friend you run into on a cool summer night who offers you your first gin and tonic of the evening. He understands the need for thumps and the requirement of melody when shifting from moment to moment in old torrid air.

Shanok is supported by his band mates, singsong bass player Noah Byrd and unabashed drummer Jordan Otto. Together they offer the buffet of ideas signature to the trio’s performance. Thoughtful, as if bending a beam of light through a fish tank’s waters in order to shine it on a crumpled piece of paper with divine thoughts splayed in wine drips and spilt coffee sips. The Winter Shakers, yes, will be remembered.

“She’s dangerous!” - Bo Diddley on Duffy Bishop.

Duffy Bishop is a force of nature. A powerful blues blaster, a sultry soul singer, a presence who connects with her audience in a deeply personal way be it in an intimate club or huge festival.

“Her band went on first and did a tune. Duffy watched from the back of the theater. The band struck up another tune and all of a sudden, this huge beautiful voice came out of nowhere. She was walking up the aisle, mic in hand, tall and glamorous, dressed to the nines, singing and greeting the members of the audience. By the time she got to the stage they were cheering...they were hers and she was theirs.” – Tom D’Antoni, Oregon Music News.

Tickets available from Brown Paper Tickets

The daughter of Hans Altwies and Amy Thone has been diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, a malignant cancer. Friends are raising funds to allow Hans and Amy to focus on caring for both of their daughters above everything else during this time.

On Wednesday May 22, musicians connected with Seattle’s theatre community will offer a benefit concert at the Royal Room in Columbia City to help with this effort.

Sarah Rudinoff will emcee and probably sing with each band; musical participants include the Victor Janusz Band (featuring Medearis Dixson, Spencer Hoveskeland & Steve White, late of the Blue Man Group); the Julia Francis Band (featuring Cirke, Joseph Barton, Darrell Warren, Dennis Rhodes & Irvin Joseph); Off the Hook featuring Miss Mamie Lavona (with Brian Smith, Lew Foust, Ponce Bautista, Sydney Wolfe, Billy Crumbaker, and Jeremy Shask); and The Klein Party (Eric Ray Anderson, Joe Casalini, Brandon Campbell, Mark Lutwak & Sabrina Pope) with special guest, Caitlin Frances.

People who are unable to attend, but who wish to contribute can do so at this link.

For all those who want to help in a tangible way for this lengthy fight to Stella's recovery, donations to help keep this family focused on recovery would be an incredible boon to these people, who are such a beautiful, generous, and passionate keystone to our lives.

Subtonic (Ropeadope Records) is a groove heavy power trio out of Portland, Oregon that blends genre bending funk with slow burning underground soul jazz. Led by keyboardist Galen Clark, Subtonic explores a coalescence of rock, soul, funk, hip hop and jazz that simultaneously draws in listeners and pushes boundaries. Trio Subtonic is Galen Clark on keys, Bill Athens on bass, Russ Kleiner on drums.

NW raised Joe Doria has been composing and performing on Hammond Organ, piano, and varied vintage keys/synths since the 90’s. Steeped in Hammond tradition studying the giants of the instrument he also never limits himself to one style and can be seen working with new projects often. Featured in numerous bands and CD’s, Audiences are dazed with his ability to comp both the bass lines and the chordal structure of a song, while at the same time adding depth and dimension to every song he performs. At home and in touch with the Hammond, knowing the instrument and it’s history so well as to make it sing in any situation.

Ranger and the "Re-Arrangers" WITH Gabe Hall-Rodrigues

7:00pm | Doors at 6:45pm

We'll be joined by Gabe Hall-Rodrigues on the accordion. Accordion is a great fit with Gypsy Jazz, and Gabe is an incredible player! He blew us away at our Django's Birthday jam, and we're excited to do a whole show with him. Gabe grew up playing piano--just a year into his accordion studies, he won the American Accordionists’ Association’s Virtuoso Solo Competition. Now he's been playing for 10 years…

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. “At the heart of their sound is Ranger Sciacca's sweet violin playing… his sense of melody and daring improvisations” (World Rhythm). The band’s repertoire includes swing standards, traditional Gypsy melodies, the music of Django Reinhardt, and Ranger's unique originals.

Virago Album Release // Into the Cold // Beyond Captain Orca

8:30pm | Doors at 7:30pm

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

Advance tickets can only be purchased online. We do not sell advance tickets at the venue.

Join Virago on the balsamic moon for a night of powerful, progressive rock as we celebrate the release of Virago’s Lament, featuring Into the Cold, Beyond Captain Orca, and special guests, DAIPAN Butoh.

Virago is a lush, progressive rock project newly created by Jane Mabrysmith (Love and Fury, The Januariez, and formerly The Black Tones). The band features Amy Denio (Kultur Shock, Tiptons, The Tone Dogs) on bass/vocals, and Alex Dillard (Huey and the InFLOWentials) on drums/keys and Chris Gibson (The League of Crafty Guitarist North America, King Crimson Fall 2017 tour) on lead guitar. They recorded the basic tracks of their new album, Lament, at Studio Litho in Seattle and invited Alex Faide (Los Twang! Marvels), Gretta Harley (Love and Fury, These Streets), and Michelle Brayson into the mix for additional collaboration.

Virago’s Lament delivers a dark and moody mix of the whimsical and the ironic. Jane’s lyrics range from the surrealism of fake news in “To Believe in You”, to the irrational sense of loss from leaving social media with “Offline”. Amy’s bass lines and harmonies and Alex Dillard's drums and keys deliver eccentricity and attitude. The contributions of Alex Faide's preternatural guitar interwoven with Michelle and Gretta's soaring vocals provide sonic texture and depth that make this record a complete sonic experience.

Into The Cold (ITC) is a Seattle based art rock band that produces and performs music inspired by local artists (painters and sculptors). They will be releasing their sophomore album in May 2019.ITC formed in 2012 and quickly went to work on their debut self-titled album produced by ITC and Jack Endino. Their live shows were a shocking success right off the bat due to big sound of the piano/organ, guitars, rhythm section and 3 female vocal harmonies. ITC is also known for incorporating concert lighting, even for smaller shows. Featuring: Katy Cornell (inflatable Soule, Going South); William Stover (Dusty 45’s, Mark Lanegan, Cat Power); Gene Devereaux (Buzzfactor); Nikol Fiala (Carrie Akre, Hallowqueen); Denny Markopolis; Keith Jager (Metal Boyz); Jason Rubin; Kristen Halberg; Buddah (Sound Engineer- Queensrych, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden).

Beyond Captain Orca! plays in the peripheral field of your mind’s ear. This instrumental trio casts improvised yet intentional sonic spells imbued with vibrations of love and joy. Beyond Captain Orca! is Jack Endino (lead guitar), 5-Track (lead bass), Patrick Lenon (lead drums).

DAIPANbutoh Collective: Butoh is a form of Japanese dance theatre that encompasses a diverse range of activities, techniques and motivations for dance, performance, or movement. DAIPANbutoh members explore and support each other’s work as independent artists, provide educational opportunities, produce evocative performances, and host an annual butoh festival
