November's Line Up
Champagne Sunday - Nov 1st + 2nd @ 7pm, 3rd @ 9pm
Endearingly labeled as “Pearl Jam meets Bette Midler”, Champagne Sunday began in Ventura, CA, in 2005 migrating up to the Pacific Northwest in recent years. Husband and wife members Jessi and Jared Fredeen have been tearing up stages and crowds nationwide with their unique upbeat, roller coaster style shows, firing off gypsy-punk rock songs alongside everything from intimate tear-jerkers to anthemic foot-stompers. This act has a ton of energy, heart, and talent that makes for an engaging, powerful show.
Strange Hotels - Nov 4th @ 9pm Nov 5th @ 7pm
Wanderlodge - Nov 6 - 8 @ 7pm
Matt Cadenelli is a longtime Portland musician and member of such bands as The Don of Division Street, Fernando, Brothers & Sister, Dr. Theopolis, Portland Country Underground, and others. Weaving together musical styles from Wilco to Nick Lowe to The Kinks to Neil Young, his sounds feature song-centric, melodious vistas aligned with insightful lyrical musings.
Shoring - Nov 9th @ 7pm Nov 10 - 11th @ 9pm
Jenna Ellefson - Nov 12 - 14th @ 7pm
"Folkstress Jenna Ellefson has proven she can turn even the hardest souls into pure putty. The Portlander’s chalky voice, coupled with delicate and minimalistic folkscapes, makes for quite the serenade. While stark, the sound echoes Ellefson’s Western upbringing, gently bubbling with a woodsy sense of enchantment and wonder."
- Willamette Week, Portland, Oregon
The Novel Ideas - Nov 15th @ 7pm
Luke Callen - Nov 9 + 10 @ 7pm
Luke Callen is a songwriter and singer from the Mississippi Valley of La Crosse, Wisconsin.
The Hugs - Nov 16th @ 7pm Nov 17th - 18th @ 9pm
"Sometimes a band puts out a release that just captures life in a snapshot – the highs, the lows, the anguish, the pain, and of course all the good stuff that makes life worth living. Feelings of Life is one such record. The Hugs wrap you with open welcome arms into their soundscape. The Hugs are on the record label Mope Records, and members Danny Delegato, Keagan O'brien, Jack Burgess, and bassist Kauri Voss are serving up their fourth (and debatably best) full-length studio album. This trippy psychedelic post-pop opus is filled with anthemic beats and rich harmonies." - NW MUSIC Scene
Lewi Longmire - Nov 19 - 21 @ 7pm
Lewi Longmire has built a reputation as Portland's multi-instrumentalist "go to guy." In the years since relocating to Portland from Albuquerque, New Mexico, he's been included on shows and recordings by many of the Northwest's finest bands and songwriters. Recently, though, Lewi has taken all the things he learned from working with these fine performers and has been spending his time leading a roots rock/americana band of his own, singing his own original compositions - Lewi Longmire & the Left Coast Roasters.
Pretty Gritty - Nov 22 + 23 @ 7pm, Nov 24th @ 9pm
Pretty Gritty is the serendipitous joining of the talents of Blaine Heinonen and Sarah Wolff, both born and raised in Montgomery County, MD. Although they originate from different rock bands, fate brought them together at local “open-mic” nights, where it became evident that they shared an interest in writing and performing songs that mix country, rock, blues, and soul. It’s said that she brings the “pretty” while he brings the “gritty”, combining for an engaging alt-country duo with seducing harmonies and addicting acoustics.
Little Sue - Nov 25th @ 9pm, Nov 26th - 27th @ 7pm
Pete Kartsoune - Nov 28th - 29th @ 7pm
Armed with an acoustic or electric guitar, blazing skill, powerful voice, award winning songs and relentless heart, Pete writes music that will move and inspire your soul.
Super Saturated Sugar Strings - Nov 30th @7pm
"The Sugar Strings are a soul-shaking, infinitely charming band from the far north. Based in Anchorage, AK, the Sugar Strings are Carlyle Watt (vocals, guitar), Theresa Watt (cello), Miriah May (violin), Kat Moore (vocals, keyboard and percussion) and Logan Bean (trumpet). Voted Anchorage’s best band in 2012 and 2013 (Anchorage Press), the Sugar Strings and their sweet and funky foot-stomping tunes have shared the stage with bands such as Devotchka, The Deadly Gentlemen, Shook Twins, and The Builders and The Butchers." -Emily Kurn
