We have a great show of roots and blues tonight in the theater with Acoustic Zoo featuring Ben Hunter, Simon Kornelis with Katie Goddard, and Squirrel Butter.

This time they’re on the big stage in back and it’s going to be a hootenanny!

Starting tomorrow, we will be bringing some new entertainment to Thursday nights in the Bourbon. Every second and fourth Thursday of the month, Simon Kornelis and Ben Hunter will be performing in the Bourbon Bar starting at 7pm. These free shows will highlight Simon and Ben’s diverse musical stylings and as the weeks go on, expect a rotating cast of their equally talented musician friends to join them on their sets.
Some of these Thursdays will be Brewer’s Night in the Bourbon where we feature beers from local breweries while entertained by Simon and Ben’s music. You can expect to hear more about Brewer’s Night very soon.
Here’s a little taste of what these guys can do:
Last week we visited Seattle artist Fritha Strand at the sodo warehouse where she works. We made our way through corridors of cardboard and concrete stairwells to the roof of the building where Fritha takes breaks to sketch and paint. The overcast skyline and strong wind threatening to blow her sketchbook into the sound may not have been the ideal conditions for capturing our fair city, but Fritha’s exuberance was undeterred as she repeatedly saw beauty all around her and put down images of vivid color long after our cameras stopped rolling.
If there’s one thing that struck me about Fritha’s work it is her use of color. She saw color in the drab, gray surroundings where I saw none, but it was there all along just waiting to be illuminated by a streak of sunlight. See her in action below:
Fritha’s work will be on display in the Bourbon Bar this month starting with an artist reception on January 13 from 8pm – 10pm. Her friend and sometimes live painting collaborator Simon Kornelis will be performing his music in the bar as well. Please join us this Thursday and celebrate this talented local artist.
