THE SPOOKIEST MONTH HAS ARRIVED
The spookiest month has arrived and it’s making a damn entrance! With cool weather knocking on our door, rain and even a possibility of a thunderstorm (?!) in the forecast, October has made a very deliberant and defiantly witchy statement: Y’all need to get in the fall spirit.
Pumpkin carving? Yes. Halloween movie marathons? Absolutely. Oktoberfest? You better work.
At the top of your Fall To-Do List sits the most treasured task of all… Craft beer amongst the fire pits in the Resident garden. Rain or shine the garden is full of umbrellas and our stage is nice and dry, so you can join us tonight for free live music from The Rita, Cackle Car, The Cherry Point, and Unsustainable Social Condition as presented by Eighty-Four. Thursday “anti-genre indie pranksters” Seepeoples are taking over with Ramonda Hammer — if you’re up to date on current events, regularly horrified, and, most importantly, registered for the upcoming Nov. 6 election, you’ll enjoy their poignant video for their song “New American Dream.” Watch, listen, act, and join us for some tunes.
The weekend is stacked full of goodness with every genre and shindig your heart desires. To start things off on the right note and dance move, we’ve got DJ Clifton spinning raw funk, heavy R&B, rare soul, and deep grooves Friday night at Soul Shakedown. Be prepared to boogie! The party atmosphere continues Saturday night with a 60s dance craze gathering known as Green Slime. Immerse yourself in “fuzzy & wild delinquent rock ‘n’ roll” of the era featuring a live performance by Night Times and DJ sets from Jumpin’ Jack Trash. Stay groovy, baby! Things take a grungy turn Sunday evening as we close out the weekend with Nuke Seattle, a night of 90s alt, indie, and grunge music. Come as you are.
Other October highlights include a visit from Bahari, just recently added to our 10/11 show with Fleurie, plus after waiting in anticipation for months, it’s finally time for Mothers and Lala Lala to visit us on 10/12. If you have yet to listen, Mothers’ new album ‘Render Another Ugly Method’ is out now and is easily one of our favorite fall soundtracks.
One last gem this month comes in the form of a Q&A and presentation by Christopher Skaife as he speaks about his memoir and life as “The Ravenmaster.” Atlas Obscura Society LA hosts this perfectly fascinating and curious event to hear about Skaife’s experience as the caregiver for the seven ravens that reside at The Tower of London, forever embedded in British folklore. We can’t think of anything better to get you in the spirit of Halloween. Edgar Allen Poe would be proud.
As we peek ahead to November, the calendar is already starting to fill up! Tickets went so quickly for Still Corners on 11/1, we decided to add a second show starting immediately after their first set. If you missed out previously, now is your chance to snag tickets to see them at 11:15 pm on 11/1! We’ve also added new shows from Riz La Vie (11/7), Divine Eve (11/8), and Old Wounds (11/14).
Lastly a treat for December! Close out the final weeks of 2018 with Valley Marker on our stage on 12/11. Their gorgeous new track and video has us reminiscing about the year already. Have yourself a listen and take this as a sign that you’re meant to join us for the show.
Here’s to another season change — leaves soon to fall, the air turning crisp, and winding down another year together. Come sit with us amidst the rain, the clouds, and the sunshine. We’ll see you soon.
