Tickets are $10. Doors open at 7pm. Online, phone, and outlet sales close at 2pm.
Sundy Best with special guests, Kate & Corey @ Eddie’s Attic
Sundy Best crafts music that re-imagines timeless classic rock of the ‘70s and ‘80s – think the Eagles and the smart, whiskey-voiced lyrics of Tom Petty and Bob Seger. With Nick on guitar and Kris on cajon, Sundy Best takes that sound, modernizes it in their own unique way by borrowing hints of country and bluegrass, to make it personal. Offstage, the pair are lifelong friends, college athletes and dog-lovers; onstage the musical duo delivers something wholly fresh and original, blending their best influences with personal music histories.
Tickets are $12 at the door. Table seats are $10 and must be purchased in multiples of 4. Doors open at 6:30pm. Online and phone sales close at 5pm.
Agalloch w/ Vex @ The EARL
For sixteen years the Pacific Northwest group Agalloch has defined what it means to combine influences from a variety of musical genres into one brooding, colossal, and cinematic sound that provides the soundtrack to existential themes concerning man, nature, loss, and death.
Tickets are $15. Doors open at 8:30pm. Online and phone sales close at 6pm.
