Advance tickets for this show are sold out, but there will be limited tickets available at the door on a first come, first serve basis.

With pianist/composer Tigran Hamasyan, potent jazz improvisation fuses with the rich folkloric music of his native Armenia. Turning 30 in 2017, he’s one of the most remarkable and distinctive jazz-meets-rock pianists of his generation. A piano virtuoso with groove power, Tigran’s latest adventurous project is 2017’s An Ancient Observer, his second solo album, his eighth overall as a sole leader, and his sophomore recording for Nonesuch. (Overall, this is his eighth recording as a sole leader.) Conceptually, An Ancient Observer is a poignant album focusing on the art of observing. Tigran’s career has included an impressive number of accolades, including top piano award at the 2013 Montreux Jazz Festival and the grand prize at the prestigious 2006 Thelonious Monk Jazz Piano Competition.

Lincoln Barr is a songwriter and singer living in Yakima, Washington. After thirteen years leading Seattle-based pop group Red Jacket Mine, he's releasing his debut solo album, Trembling Frames - a set of deeply personal songs that grapple with trauma and the instability of memory.

Featuring a stellar cast of studio musicians, including Calexico drummer John Convertino, the album's sound revels in the beguiling complexity of the Great American Songbook and the work of (slightly) more contemporary auteurs like Burt Bacharach and Angelo Badalamenti. This series of full-band performances will feature musicians who performed on the album, including Mr. Convertino and Brooklyn-based saxophonist Levon Henry.

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

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

British electro-acoustic super guitarist and entertainer. Described by Audio magazine as a "kind of cross between Robert Fripp and Garrison Keillor," Legg is a genuine entertainer who excels at not only painting pictures if not frescoes and telling stories with music but also wittily regaling his audiences with tales from his life and travels and his cogent and often oblique yet thought provoking observations on a spectrum of topics. It’s all part of his dedication to making his performances a full-blooded emotional experience. “If you haven't shared a laugh with someone,” he insists, "you certainly can't share a tragedy."

MKB Ultra w/ SAGE and Green Pajamas

9:00pm | Doors at 8:00pm

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

MKB Ultra
A veteran Seattle musician, Mia combines singer/songwriter craft with musical collaborations bringing hints of American folk, soul and experimental. Her musical friends inspire new directions but she remains grounded in confessional, blues-tinged rock. "I just do this so I can sing".

Mia Katherine Boyle: Songs, Vocals, Rhythm guitars
Sheridan Riley: Drums
Jack Endino: Lead guitar
Lisa Mansfield: Vocals, tambourine

SAGE are the power trio from the 90’s that reforms periodically to play their haunted, ardent math rock with a hint of western-gothic to fans who long to hear from these virtuosos. Guitarist Marc Olsen (respected solo artist) and bassist Guy Davis (also of Kultur Shock) team up with drummer Mike Williamson to blaze a singular path of dynamic range and skill artfully delivered with a minor key brilliance.

The Green Pajamas formed in the spring of 1984 when Jeff Kelly and Joe Ross recorded and released their first album, Summer Of Lust, pioneering Seattle's answer to the Los Angeles Paisley Underground scene. "The Pajamas somehow manage to sound like holding two kaleidoscopes side by side and using them as binoculars to see the future of rock'n'roll" wrote Phil McMullen in Bucketfull Of Brains [July 1987]. The band rose to college radio fame in the mid 1980s with the 7" record Kim The Waitress, and, over the last 22 years, has released numerous albums on many labels including Green Monkey, Bomp!, Camera Obscura and Get Hip. Their most recent album is Poison In The Russian Room on Hidden Agenda Records, voted one of top 100 records of the year by The London Times. The Green Pajamas' current lineup includes founding members Kelly and Ross (on guitar and bass respectively), longtime stalwart Eric Lichter (keyboard), Laura Weller (guitar) and Scott Vanderpool (drums).

David Cronenberg Birthday film screening featuring the Brood w/ Manitou

David Cronenberg is one of the most provocative and challenging horror/sci-fi filmmakers of our time. This month happens to be his 74th birthday, and in commemoration of this event, we will be showing one of his most popular, yet at times, understated, cult films of his career, The Brood. He has said that it was the "most classic horror film" he produced. We will be showing the Criterion version in its entirety.

This will be a double feature, paired with the spiritually motivated and equally horrifying, Manitou. Produced in 1978, starring Tony Curtis, Susan Strasberg, and Burgess Meredith.

Gabriel Burbano Quintet

7:30pm | Doors at 6:30pm

Gabriel Burbano was born in Miami, FL, and found the trumpet and music at an early age. By the time he was 13, Gabriel was working regularly as trumpet player in several bands performing various styles of latin music such as Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, Bossa Nova, and Latin Jazz. However, upon moving to the Seattle area in 2003, he discovered his passion for Jazz, R&B, and Soul, and has since been performing with many of the northwest’s top artists.

The Gabriel Burbano Quintet combines elements of each of those musical genres to bring the fire and passion that listeners would come to expect from a live Jazz, Latin, or R&B performance, but delivered with a renewed spirit that is sure to touch the soul of any music lover.
