It’s Stripped Screw Burlesque’s 2nd birthday, and we want to show you our birthday suits! Join the sassy, scintillating ladies of Stripped Screw for “Keep It Up!”  a dazzling Birthday Suit Salute and Festive Farewell to Roxie Moxie on October 8th at Columbia City Theater.

…We’ll be performing your all-time favorite Stripped Screw acts and throwing in a few new birthday surprises  including special guest appearances by Jesse Belle Jones, Iva Handfull, The Luminous Pariah, Bella Bijoux and Tin Pan Sally with Randi Rascal and Wiggy Stardust! From peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to voodoo priestesses to Patrick Swayze’s huge mounds (of clay), this show has all the irreverent gritty-glossy-glam-sexy performance stylings our Stripped Screw fans have come to know and love.

Also please join us in wishing a fond, festive farewell to the lovely Roxie Moxie, who is leaving Stripped Screw to return to Austin, Texas, where we know she’ll continue to rock the audience so very, very hard. We’re going to miss our tiniest little Screw!

Six Bands, Six New Albums: Columbia City Theater is the place for record release shows

2 Feb

This weekend will be the first of six record release shows in as many weeks happening at the Columbia City Theater. We are honored to be the venue of choice by such exceptional talent for their special nights. Here’s a rundown of record release shows that we’re so very excited about over the next couple months. I’m sure there will be a lot of people wondering, as KEXP asked recently, “Is there any way to buy a season-pass to the Columbia City Theater?”

This Weekend: The Ironclads, Shenandoah Davis, The River Rust

2 Dec

Friday: Sound on the Sound Presents: The Ironclads, M. Bison, Joseph Giant

The Ironclads

Our dear friends at Sound on the Sound have put together another stellar lineup for us this Friday. The Columbia City Theater is honored to host The Ironclads, a band you don’t get many opportunities to see these days as it’s members currently live in different states. We highly recommend you take advantage of this rare chance because The Ironclads give it their all on stage. Also playing will be the complex yet catchy M. Bison and Joseph Giant – whose infectious pop songs have been playing on repeat on my computer all morning. You’re going to have some songs stuck in your head after this show.


Saturday: Shenandoah Davis (Release Party), Cataldo, Ivan & Alyosha, Thousands

The talented Shenandoah Davis will grace our stage on Saturday night and will be backed up by the Passenger String Quartet. Shenandoah has performed at the Theater a few times already with her band Grand Hallway and was also part of last weekend’s Tribute to Harry Smith, but we are excited to have her play songs from her solo project. Here is a little something we put together in honor of this show.

The man behind Cataldo is Eric Anderson and his band is made up of a rotating cast of musicians. His indie folk rock consists of catchy melodies and clever lyrics. Complimenting that sound perfectly will be Ivan & Alyosha. Lead singer Tim Wilson’s soaring vocals float over traditional pop progressions to make for a sweetly satisfying experience. Opening up the night will be Thousands, an acoustic duo from Seattle.


Sunday: The River Rust

Our free Sunday show in the Bourbon Bar will be The River Rust. This one man band makes use of  guitar, percussion and looping techniques to create a rich texture of sound.
