Friday, April 3, 2015 from 8-11pm
A positively unmissable night of hot tunes, cold drinks, and high flying performances to astound and amaze! Nothing less than bodily contortion, death-defying aerials and hot-stepping neo-swing dance will do against the fantastical soundscape of Three for Silver (Portland’s own beloved old-world folk trio), Hot Damn Scandal (tipsy American gysy tunes imported from Bellingham) and Intuitive Compass (Vaudevillian folk music, fresh off the endless road) $15 at the door, or a mere $10 for those dapper gentlefolks who arrive dressed to kill! --- THREE FOR SILVER combines a gritty aesthetic, world folk traditions, and virtuosic technique with a modern songwriting sense. Fresh on the heels of the recent wildly successful release of their second full length album "Bury Me Standing", Three for Silver has been described as “the acid baby of Tom Waits and Victor Wooten” and promises to tickle your ears in only the best way possible. HOT DAMN SCANDAL finds its songs under park benches and in forgotten alleyways. The resulting outlaw ballads, dirty jazz, circus freakouts, shanty-rags, string band funk, lonesome heart-breakers, and whiskey bottle love songs blend together in a sweet song syrup somewhere between a ramble and a roar. Sometimes called ‘Tipsy American Gypsy Blues’, Hot Damn Scandal pulls no punches and and puts thunder in your molasses. INTUITIVE COMPASS are purveyors of nothing but the absolute finest in original Vaudevillian folk music and entertainment. Wild melodies conspire to lift you right up out of your seat and onto the dance floor, St. Vitus style, while soulful lyrics tug and tease at your heartstrings. http://www.facebook.com/events/1594817780733500/
