Tonight: Special Guests Drew Grow & the Pastors’ Wives join Kelli Schaefer

2 Oct

An amazing lineup just got better with the last minute announcement that Drew Grow and the Pastors’s Wives will be backing Kelli Schaefer tonight at the Columbia City Theater. Last time Kelli played our stage she commanded a full house with her captivating vocals before rousing the entire room to sing along with her infectious choruses. To have her label-mates the Pastors’ Wives as her backing band will undoubtedly be an experience we’ll be talking – and blogging – about for a while. Here’s a video from her performance at one of our Grand Opening shows:

Bookended by the Kaylee Cole and People Eating People there’ll be no shortage of powerful voices and talented songwriters on stage tonight.

9 pm / $10 / 21+

Drew Grow and The Pastors’ Wives Play this Saturday!

22 Jun

If you’re having trouble deciding which FREE Grand Opening show to see these next two weekends (you really should just go to all four), here’s another video featuring one of the amazing acts that will grace our stage. Drew Grow & the Pastors’ Wives will be playing this Saturday, June 26, along with fellow Portlander Kelli Schaefer and Seattle’s own Grand Hallway. This is guaranteed to be a riveting and powerful evening of music so don’t be surprised if you witness a few tears shed. I’ve seen it happen myself on more than one occasion with these guys.

Enjoy and see you this weekend!
