Wayne Horvitz and Bobby Previte have been playing music together since the early 1980’s, in each other’s band (The President, The Horvitz/Morris/Previte trio, Bobby Previte’s “Bump the Renaissance”. “Miro” and more} and also in collaborations with John Zorn. Bill Frisell, Charlie Hunter, Billy Bang, Butch Morris and many more.

The Voodoo Orchestra began in 1999 in the Tap Bar of the Knitting Factory in New York City. Every Tuesday night, Bobby Previte would assemble some of New York’s great improvisers to play the entirety of BITCHES BREW, the seminal 1970 recording by Miles Davis. Begun just for the sheer joy of playing this groundbreaking electric music, a buzz about the band soon started and they were recruited for the Vancouver and Saalfelden festivals, and opened the “Wall to Wall Miles” festival at Symphony Space in New York.

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

GAMBLE/PREVITE/RUCKER -
Bobby Previte's new blowout trio of guitar, synthesizer, alto sax and drums with two of his favorite genre-benders, Mike Gamble on guitar and Fabian Rucker on sax and electronics.

BLUEPRINTS -
Bobby Previte went back over every piece of music he composed from 1979 to the present - music for acoustic jazz bands, electric music, new classical, electronic, music for films - and took one short fragment from each, pasting them all up together into a huge master score. He then spontaneously selects various fragments for the ensemble to play and then using a variety of signals conducts them through these fragments, the effect something like a "symphony of small parts." But here's the catch: the entire score is projected on a screen behind Previte so that not only must the musicians read all the music from the screen, but the audience can see it as well. Previte has been performing BLUEPRINTS with a rotating band in upstate New York for months, and audiences love trying to follow along with what the musicians are playing on the score, as well as sometimes staring in perplexity when there is but a single measure of music on screen that somehow, through the magic of the performers, is transformed into five minutes of stunning improvisation. You have literally never seen anything like it.

Sway Wild featuring Dave McGraw & Mandy Fer // Micaiah Sawyer

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

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

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

Pacific Northwest based songwriter duo Dave McGraw & Mandy Fer voyage even further out to sea on their latest self-produced/recorded release Off-Grid Lo Fi. Recorded entirely with solar and wind powered electricity on a nearly uninhabited, remote, off-grid island in northwest Washington state, McGraw and Fer have ventured into new territory, both geographically and artistically.

McGraw and Fer were invited to a seaside farm to care-take for four old donkeys and a flock of chickens for three months on a non-ferry serviced island with a winter population of fewer than eight people. Seizing the opportunity for a solitary writing residency, the duo loaded all of their instruments, minimal recording gear, and groceries into a tiny 16’ aluminum boat and crossed the channel towards the US/Canadian border for what they called their ‘feral’ adventure. Pushing wheelbarrows full of provisions in their rubber boots, they made their way to a hand-built cabin where they recorded Off-Grid Lo-Fi in a living room overlooking the Pacific inland sea. The recording set-up was basic. No computer screens or editing. No Auto-Tune. All real takes. The result is a twelve-song album drenched with rich vocal harmonies, poignant songwriting, Fer’s potent electric guitar playing, acoustic guitars, percussion, cello and newly prominent banjo and piano (all played bye Fer and McGraw). Off-Grid Lo-Fi is an intimate, authentic and refreshingly honest exploration into the genres of folk, rock, and roots music.

Known as a standout electric guitarist and multi-instrumentalist, Mandy Fer is unafraid to dominate the stage for an extended guitar solo, defying long-held gender barriers for female guitarists. Dave McGraw’s emotional songwriting riffs on natural elements of the world around him. McGraw spent a decade as a wildlife biologist, studying endangered birds in remote locales from the deserts of Mexico and the Grand Canyon to the mountainous rainforests of Washington. McGraw and Fer joined forces in Flagstaff, Arizona in 2010 before relocating to the Pacific Northwest in 2012.

The duo’s 2014 release Maritime charted at #1 on the EuroAmericana Chart for two consecutive months and was praised by The Telegraph for “…soulful songs, intuitive musicianship, and fine singing.” Together, their exceptional vocal harmonies coupled with Fer’s pioneering electric guitar work have become a vehicle to carry them around the world. The pair has honed their skills touring extensively throughout the US and Europe, sharing stages with such artists as Iron & Wine, Glen Hansard, Gregory Alan Isakov, Charlie Hunter Trio, Birds of Chicago and many others. Winning over audiences anywhere from Alaska to Amsterdam, McGraw and Fer perform a heartfelt and dynamic blend of innovative folk, rock, pop and funk.

Micaiah Sawyer is a singer-songwriter from Olympia, WA playing a mix of folk, blues and rock.

“If you want to see the future of folk music, look no further than Micaiah Sawyer.” — Adrienne Clark, Museum Of Pop Culture

Now terrified of heights, Humpty can longer do many of the things he loves most. Will he summon the courage to face his fear? Don’t miss this concert full of original music inspired by a vivid picture book with a new spin on Humpty Dumpty—reminding audiences of all ages that life begins when we get back up.

BowieVision

Early Show: 7:00pm | Doors at 6:00pm

Tickets: $18 adv/ $22 dos / $30 adv for entry into both shows
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

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

The Royal Room presents “BOWIEx2,” a two-show David Bowie retrospective featuring Seattle’s own BowieVision. The 7:00 PM show focuses on the hyper-creative period from 1969’s Space Oddity to 1977’s Heroes and features songs from classic albums like The Man Who Sold the World, Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, and Young Americans. The 9:30 PM show spans the last four decades of Bowie’s career with a diverse array of songs, including Ashes to Ashes, Let’s Dance, Modern Love, I’m Afraid of Americans, As the World Falls Down, Under Pressure, and Lazarus.

While others imitate, BowieVision elevates. Foregoing the pretense of wigs and makeup and focusing instead on interpreting David Bowie’s eclectic and expansive musical catalog, BowieVision raises the bar for what a tribute band can be.

In fact, a BowieVision performance is better described as a celebration than a tribute. While lead singer Stefan Mitchell’s dynamic vocals and sense of showmanship are impressive enough, he also shares Bowie’s rare gift for connecting with an audience by creating an atmosphere that’s simultaneously epic and intimate, an approach that resonates with audiences on a deeper level than mere impersonation ever could.

Members of Northwest lounge-pop mainstays the Dudley Manlove Quartet and electronica band Purr Gato joined forces in 2013 to share their love of Bowie’s music with audiences in Seattle and beyond. Combining deft musicianship, masterful stage presence, and stunning lighting effects, BowieVision brings a concert-magnitude experience to every size venue, putting its unique stamp on rock anthems like Rebel Rebel and Suffragette City; the wide-screen balladry of Life on Mars?, Space Oddity, and Changes; mid-70s “plastic soul” (Golden Years, Young Americans, Fame;) art-pop experiments like Fashion, Heroes, and Ashes to Ashes; and the high-sheen Eighties classics Let’s Dance, China Girl, and Blue Jean.

Although Bowie’s personas have been ever-changing, his music is timeless. It’s this realization that elevates BowieVision above the realm of trite nostalgia. It may be a bold statement to make about a “tribute” band, but it’s a fact: BowieVision is the real deal. Accept no imitations.

Two of those — bassist Buster Williams and drummer Lenny White — perfectly complement his “earthy, assertive style” (NY Times), calling to mind McCoy Tyner, John Hicks, and Mulgrew Miller with reserves of Keith Jarrett and even Cecil Taylor.

The 32nd Street Singers present “For the Birds!” a fundraiser for the Seward Park Audubon Center

3:00pm | Doors at 2:30pm

For the Birds! (literally) is a celebration of Mother Earth. At a time of global warming, when environmental protections are being challenged, The 32nd Street Singers hope to inspire stewardship and preservation of nature’s gifts with great music.

In that spirit, this show is a fundraiser for the Seward Park Audubon Center, paying tribute to their excellent education and outreach programs. Rising temperatures and loss of habitat threaten the survival of more than 300 species of North American birds.

The 32nd Street Singers are an 8-part harmony group, known for their musical blend and lively concerts. The group’s core started singing together at Franklin High School in the backyard of the Royal Room and Seward Park. Expect a broad mix of genres, and of course, bird songs like Rockin’ Robin, Blackbird, and Fly Like an Eagle. The audience gets into the act with popular sing-along tunes from Woodie Guthrie, Joni Mitchell, Mary Poppins and Bob Marley.

Earshot Jazz Presents: Cuong Vu and Indigo Mist, Featuring George Garzone

8:00pm | Doors at 7:00pm

Tickets: $20 GA/ $18 seniors & Earshot members/ $10 students & military
Tickets available from Earshot Jazz

George Garzone – tenor sax
Cuong Vu – trumpet
Richard Karpen – piano
Juan Pampin – electronic orchestration and manipulations
Steve Rodby – bass
Ted Poor – drums

Initially the brainchild of electro acoustic pioneer/composer Richard Karpen and Cuong Vu, Indigo Mist has become a vehicle for the musical musings of a group of forward reaching artists with tendencies towards experimentation. Having crossed paths over the years as University of Washington music faculty, the group is currently comprised of electro-acoustic composer and DXArts director Juan Pampin, Ted Poor, whose prodigious drumming has recently been enlisted by Chris Thile and Andrew Bird, and 15 time Grammy winner, bassist/producer Steve Rodby.

Critics have described the Indigo Mist’s 2014 recording as “…gorgeous, far out, haunting, and evocative…In a word: special” (Outside Inside Out), “Mysterious, provocative, fanciful” (Something Else). Stereophile states, “Cuong Vu is a postmodern jazz trumpeter…[pianist/composer] Richard Karpen is director of the School of Music at the University of Washington...When these two got together, the shit hit the fan.”

Invited into the fold is world renown tenor saxophone master/improviser George Garzone, whose musical concepts and immense impact has had profound influence on generations of the worlds most celebrated jazz saxophonists today. Expect Garzone to push the group into more unchartered territories that promise to be exhilarating.

Peppino writes wonderful guitar pieces. He’s one of my favorite composers for this cranky instrument. Plus, he’s a tone player. I love his sound—he gets the resin and the wood.” ~Leo Kottke.

The July 2017 Guitar Player Magazine cover story lists Peppino as one of the 50 transcendent superheroes of the acoustic guitar of all time. A native of Italy, D’Agostino has made his considerable international mark as a musical artist on the guitar since he arrived in America 31 years ago. The readers of Guitar Player voted him Best Acoustic Guitarist, and Acoustic Guitar’s People’s Choice Awards graced him with a Bronze medal for Best Acoustic Album of All Time for his release “Every Step of The Way”. His signature Seagull acoustic guitar has been voted among the ten best signature guitars by Guitar Player magazine. Peppino gives guitar workshops, master classes and seminars worldwide. To date Peppino has recorded 18 CD’s, performed in over thirty countries at international festivals and concert halls. He has shared the stage with such greats as Larry Carlton, Eric Johnson, Tommy Emmanuel, Leo Kottke, Martin Taylor, Roland Dyens, David Tanenbaum and many more. D’Agostino’s latest solo CD “Penumbra” was released by Mesa Blue Moon Recordings.

Melodic Poetry of Phoebe Snow (A Tribute Show) - TWO SHOWS

Early Show: 7:00pm | Doors at 6:00pm
Late Show: 9:30pm | Doors 9:15pm

Tickets: $20 adv/ $25 dos
Tickets for Early Show available here
Tickets for Late Show available here

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

Phoebe Ann Laub (July 17, 1950 – April 26, 2011) was born in New York City and grew up in Teaneck, N.J. After changing her name to Phoebe Snow, she would beocme one of the leading voices of the singer-songwriter movement, whose swooping vocal acrobatics transcended musical genres. “Poetry Man,” a lilting guitar-based original song from her 1974 self-titled debut album, “Phoebe Snow” (Shelter), catapulted Ms. Snow to fame.

Throughout her musical career Ms. Snow’s soaring contralto led her to be variously labeled as a jazz, blues, pop, funk, and gospel artist depending on the record she released. After her only child was born with a severe disability, Snow dropped out of the music for most of her life, dedicating full time caring for her daughter, refusing institutionalization until Valerie’s death at age 31. Snow’s brief return to the stage ended upon her own passing four years later.

In honor of her life’s work and her dedication as a mother whose love is deemed unconditional, this show is an epitaph to her rich voice, her music and arrangements, and to the poetry she effectively left behind.

To celebrate Phoebe Snow, Seattle born vocalist/producer Om Johari has put together an amazingly talented cast of some of the most vibrant musicians west of the Rockies. Eulogizing on vocals will be:
Kimya Dawson
Alina Vida
Alex Rose
Adriana Giordano
JR Rhodes
Christa Wells
LaTanya Horace
Om Johari

Piping in rich sounds from the band will be:
Brittany Davis – vocals and piano
Kathy Moore – guitars
Marina Christopher – vocals and contra/electric bass
Nia Neal – drums
Naomi Siegel – trombone
Jessica Lurie – flute, clarinet, and sax

Dangerknife + Friends – Live Score to "The Phantom Carriage

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

On New Year's Eve, the driver of a ghostly carriage forces a drunken man to reflect on his selfish, wasted life. The Phantom Carriage is a 1921 Swedish film generally considered to be one of the central works in the history of Swedish cinema. It was directed by and starred Victor Sjöström, alongside Hilda Borgström, Tore Svennberg and Astrid Holm. The film is notable for its special effects, its advanced (for the time) narrative structure with flashbacks within flashbacks.

KNKX Presents: The Cabinet of Dr Caligari

6:00pm | Doors at 5:00pm

Featuring live performance by the Wayne Horvitz Ensemble. Score by Wayne Horvitz

Considered the quintessential work of German Expressionist cinema, Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari tells the story of an insane hypnotist (Werner Krauss) who uses a somnambulist (Conrad Veidt) to commit murders. Written by Hans Janowitz and Carl Mayer with direction by Robert Wiene, this classic horror film features a dark and twisted visual style, with sharp-pointed forms, oblique and curving lines, structures and landscapes that lean and twist in unusual angles, and shadows and streaks of light painted directly onto the sets.
