On Monday evening, a new night of hot, wild, highly contentious rhythms will ruffle the feathers of the establishment assembled at the Secret Society Ballroom. The music will throw caution to the wind; there will be dancers lost gloriously in the beat, shuffling across the floor in giddy delight. Drinks will flow, food served briskly and all the while, you'll have a sense of both bewilderment and unabashed joy that you simply showed up. A new authentic 1920s and 30s night, music to make your ears dance. If you want this to become a regular happening every month, please show up to this first one. You can make this happen! Monday, June 19 - The Cherry Blossom Orchestra 116 NE Russell. Doors at 7pm, the live music starts at 8.30.

The Earnest Lovers are vintage honky tonk heartbreak seranaders Pete Krebs (Hazel, Stolen Sweets, Portland Playboys) and Leslie Beia (Copper & Coal, The Lowburners). An alliance forged from their mutual and devoted love of the golden era of country duets, the Lovers have set out to capture that classic sound and to invigorate it with new life in the form of original compositions. With one foot solidly rooted in tradition while allowing the other to two-step forward in exploration, they promise a sound as comforting as old whiskey and as compelling as that fancy new cocktail at the Sapphire Hotel. They'll be releasng their CD and celebrating with us in the listening audience, those at the Secret Society, and Cahalen Morrison & Country Hammers, and Doug and Dee. KBOO will also be streaming this concert live, tune into for the listen-at-home link!
