Tickets: $17 adv/ $20 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

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

Guitar phenomenon Clive Carroll’s masterful compositions, coupled with his versatility and unparalleled technical virtuosity, have rendered him one of today’s most admired and respected guitarists.

Born in England, Clive began his musical journey in Chelmsford, Essex. His parents had a taste for American country and old time music and it wasn’t long before Clive was playing in the family band on a homemade banjo. By his early teens, guitar in hand, Clive was traversing the worlds of soul, pop, funk, and traditional Irish music, balancing his affinity for Slayer with the etudes of Tárrega. This breadth of musical curiosity was to become one of his strengths; even as a child Clive was as comfortable accompanying a group of folk singers as he was jamming along to Nirvana or performing standards with the Essex Youth Orchestra.

Clive went on to earn a 1st Class Honours Degree in Composition and Guitar from the famed Trinity College of Music in London, all the while balancing his classical work with forays into the world of the steel string guitar. By the time he graduated from Trinity, Clive had not only penned orchestral works, he had written an album’s worth of solo acoustic guitar music. A chance meeting with English guitar legend John Renbourn proved the catalyst for Clive’s debut album, “Sixth Sense”, which Renbourn deemed “a milestone in the journey of the steel-string guitar”. He subsequently took Clive on the road with him and the pair toured North America and Europe together, launching Clive’s solo performing career.

Since then, Clive has established himself as one of the world’s premier acoustic guitar players. He has toured across Europe, Australia, the Middle East and North America, garnering praise for his sublime performances of everything from 16th and 17th century lute music to Jazz standards, Blues, Irish reels and his own groundbreaking compositions. Lauded guitarist Tommy Emmanuel has also taken Clive on the road, and similar nods to Clive’s musicianship have been given by everyone from classical guitarist John Williams to Madonna, Guy Ritchie, Michelin award-winning chef Jean-Christophe Novelli, and the Sultanate of Oman.

To date, Clive has released four solo albums; “Sixth Sense”, “The Red Guitar” (which Tommy Emmanuel cites as one of his desert island discs!), “Life in Colour” and "The Furthest Tree". Clive has also written music for television and film, most notably composing the music for the film “Driving Lessons”, which features Julie Walters and Rupert Grint of Harry Potter fame.

Clive newest CD, “The Furthest Tree”, was released in May 2016 and is already being hailed as some of his finest work to date.

Hot Club Sandwich CD Release // Choroloco

8:00pm | Doors at 7:00pm

Tickets: $10 adv/dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

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

More than fifteen years ago, hot-jazz string band Hot Club Sandwich was founded in Olympia, WA with the instrumentation of guitars, bass, violin, mandolin and drums. Each band member is also a contributing composer and arranger, and everyone in the band sings. The forthcoming fifth Hot Club Sandwich recording, No Pressure, features a title track by the group’s 74-year-old guitarist Ray Wood, and a guest appearance by mandolinist David Grisman. As the name suggests, the Hot Club Sandwich repertoire carries a reverence for Gypsy Jazz along with folkloric influences from around the world that flourished during the same era. In some cases, the band has been known to venture into Western twang territory, including in collaboration with the late legend Dan Hicks.

Samantha Boshnack’s Seismic Belt Live in Santa Monica CD Release // Abbey Blackwell’s Rae

8:00pm | Doors at 7:00pm

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.

A celebration of a new release by Seattle-based trumpeter and composer Samantha Boshnack on Orenda Records. Seismic Belt explores the seismic activity along the Ring of Fire - the horseshoe-shaped region surrounding the Pacific that contains the majority of the world’s volcanoes and volcanos. This music experiments with the friction of geographic shifts to create a new harmonic topography and examines our relationship with the Earth, including the elements of risk and faith in that uneasy cohabitation. Movements of the work draw on influences from some of the cultures and people living on the Ring, in places such as Chile, Japan, Alaska, Iceland, Western Samoa, and Russia.

This performance features Boshnack on trumpet & flugelhorn, Chris Credit on tenor & baritone saxophones, Alex Guy on violin & viola, Begin Scarseth on violin, Alex Chadsey on piano, Troy Schiefelbein on bass and Max Wood on drums. This is an ideal instrumentation to tackle these vital, sometimes volatile compositions, and it allows Boshnack to explore the median between the charms of her two primary vehicles as a bandleader up to this point— the 14-piece B’shnorkestra, with its touches of symphonic grandeur, and the small-group avant-jazz dynamism of the Sam Boshnack Quintet.

With some serendipity, Boshnack’s visionary new project was birthed in a town of many fault lines, Los Angeles. As the 2018 recipient of the 18th Street Arts Center’s prestigious Make Jazz Fellowship, an honor sponsored by the Herb Alpert Foundation, Boshnack was able to work on her commissioned piece over a three-month period. Samantha Boshnack’s Seismic Belt Live in Santa Monica is a live recording of the culminating concert of the residency. For more information on the CD visit - Orenda Records.

Amendola vs. Blades

8:00pm | Doors at 7:30pm

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.

Wil Blades and Scott Amendola conjure various sonic deities though only a duo. For the past 10 years, their live shows have been generating a buzz around the San Francisco Bay Area. The two got their start as a group when Scott had the vision of performing Duke Ellington’s “Far East Suite” in duo with Wil. While quite a daunting task translating a suite (originally written for a big band) into duo, the Hammond Organ had previously been used in the 1940’s and 1950’s to emulate the sound of big bands. With Wil’s knowledge of this tradition and Scott’s desire to push boundaries, they were able to pull it off in an explorative, yet cohesive manner. The duo continues to perform pieces from the Ellington suite, while also developing their original material. Their live performances are fun and playful, yet deeply musical. They can cover everything from Avant Garde to Funk, Bebop to Rock, sometimes within one song. In June 2015, at Duende in Oakland, CA, they set up shop for two nights and recorded in front of a live audience. The resulting release, entitled “Greatest Hits”, is now out on SAZi records and has been recieiving rave reviews!

Mike Baggetta with Mike Watt & Stephen Hodges, Wall of Flowers Album Release Tour // Opener: Dan Phelps - Guitarist / Improviser / Texturalist

8:00pm | Doors at 7:30pm

Advance tickets for this show have sold out, but there will be a limited number of tickets available at the door on a first come, first served basis.  

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

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

A truly one-of-a-kind trio led by guitarist MIKE BAGGETTA, featuring punk legend bassist MIKE WATT (Minutemen, Iggy Pop and the Stooges, fIREHOSE) and drummer STEPHEN HODGES (Tom Waits, Mavis Staples, David Lynch). The music they play is utterly unclassifiable. Referencing it as post-genre-improv-jazz-rock may come close, but still doesn't even begin to touch on the wild electric textures Baggetta’s guitar alone brings to the table.

This performance is part of the album release tour for WALL OF FLOWERS, out March 2019, Baggetta’s latest work issued on the BIG EGO record label featuring MIKE WATT & JIM KELTNER. Vinyl editions will be available at the performance.

"NY Guitar poet Mike Baggetta’s new recording with his potent trio veers daringly and compellingly from patient, elegiac freedom to searing, oozing sludge rock without the slightest hesitation or apology. One cannot resist its myriad charms. Cool!” -Nels Cline, Guitarist

“Mike Baggetta makes stealthy, mysterious music … he’s trying to do something personal with collective improvisation without ever getting in the way of beauty.” -Ben Ratliff, New York Times

“…a kind of post-Frisellian sonic explorer … with his wild whammy-bar articulations, ambient looping and rippling arpeggios … full of subversive surprises, hellacious skronking, string-scraping and a general hornets’ nest of fuzz-toned dissonance” -Bill Milkowski, DownBeat Magazine / Slate Magazine

Opening will be Dan Phelps - Guitarist / Improviser / Texturalist

Diggin Dirt'

8:30pm | Doors at 8:15pm

Tickets: $8 adv/ $10 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

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

Diggin' Dirt began planting its roots back in 2011 in the town of Arcata, CA in Humboldt County. The original lineup was a jammed out quintet that consisted of a double guitar rhythm section and a tenor saxophone. The original five (Rory Urquhart, Joey Incorvaia, Drew Weitzel, John Callahan and Aaron Gottesman) had high hopes of getting house party gigs and maybe one day performing on a stage. Practices, gigs, and seasons passed as the band traveled through many incarnations of members and genres. The band took pieces from each chapter and kept moving forward, all the while staying anchored to the heavy groove element that Diggin Dirt has become known for.

Foghorn Stringband

8:00pm | Doors at 7:00pm

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.

“Face it people – there’s Foghorn…and then there’s everybody else.” - Stuart Mason – The Fiddlefreak.

The Foghorn Stringband is the present day gold standard for real-deal hard-hitting genuine old-time American string band music, with eight albums, thousands of shows, over 15 years of touring under their belts, and an entirely new generation of roots musicians following their lead. American roots music is a diverse and never-ending well of inspiration, and Foghorn Stringband continually and obsessively draws from old-time, bluegrass, classic country, and Cajun music traditions in an ongoing quest to present a broad span of American historical music with an unparalleled youthful energy, joy, and virtuosity.

The Foghorn Stringband is comprised four master performers and historians: –Caleb Klauder (vocals, mandolin, fiddle) – From Orcas Island, Washington –Reeb Willms (vocals, guitar) – From rural Farmer, Washington –Nadine Landry (vocals, upright bass) – From the Gaspé Coast, Eastern Quebec –Stephen ‘Sammy’ Lind (vocals, fiddle, banjo) – From Minneapolis, Minnesota Each member of Foghorn Stringband exemplifies the best of the roots music traditions from their respective native cultures. Caleb Klauder’s wistful, keening vocals and rapid-fire mandolin picking are as influenced by Southern roots music as much as they are by his upbringing in the sea islands of coastal Washington State. Reeb Willms hails from the wind swept Eastern farmlands of Washington. Her musical family and rural upbringing are are on display with every note she sings and every heart she breaks. Nadine Landry’s roots lie in the rural backroads of Acadian Québec, and her high lonesome vocals have delighted audiences the world over. Her earth-shaking bass playing is the rumbling backbone of the Foghorn sound. Minnesotan Stephen ‘Sammy’ Lind, simply put, is the old-time fiddler of his generation whose tone and voice are as old as the same hills that gave birth to this music. Together, these four have forged a sound like no other.

Andalucía!

8:30pm | Doors at 7:30pm

Tickets: $35 adv/ $40 dos
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

This series, Andalucía, is in honor of the rich history of Andalucía and the legacy of Paco de Lucía.

Andalucía, the birthplace of flamenco, is a region in Spain composed of eight provinces that stretch across the country. When the Gypsies arrived in Andalucía in the early 1400’s, they brought with them their culture’s song and dance. When they were persecuted with the Moors and Jews, they took refuge in caves in treacherous mountain areas. These cultures’ song and dance fused to create what we know today as flamenco.

Paco de Lucía was born in 1947, in the province of Cadiz, in Andalucía. He became the world’s premier flamenco guitarist; revolutionizing the music as a composer and musician. One critic proclaimed that Paco de Lucia’s music “sets a new standard for modern flamenco music and acts as the true bridge between the ancient and the future.”

During this beautiful show you will experience our renown master guitarist, Israel, perform the National Anthem of Andalucía. Israel was born in Granada, Spain to a gypsy (Romani) family that cultivates flamenco. He began playing professionally at 14 years old in one of the most prestigious Flamenco caves in Granada, ‘La Faraona’, where he developed his specialties of accompaniment for voice and dance while developing his own artistic style.

The group will be joined, during this tour, by Jose del Faro, direct from Spain. Jose del Faro, a singer-songwriter, will captivate you with his mastery of Flamenco sound. He captures the essence of authentic Flamenco in his song and is also, a master of guitar and percussion. Jose is an artist that you don’t dare to miss!

A versatile and unpredictable force of nature onstage, Jose 'El Nino' is a consummate performer and improviser. His playful style and unending energy will have you craving more.

A mesmerizing and expressive performer, Amelia dominates the stage with the exquisite musicality of her Flamenco dance.
