Labor Day Weekend, 2008: Bagley Wright Theater, as part of Sherman Alexie's "Words and Music" variety show at Bumbershoot. Packed house, terrific to be on such a kapowie bill!

Thursday, September 29, 2005: Lottie's Lounge, 4900 Rainier Ave S. 8-ish, free! The newest, best drinking hole in Columbia City. Make it your neighborhood bar whether you live here or not!

Friday, September 23, 2005: 9 lb. Hammer, 6009 Airport Way South, in Georgetown. (206) 762-3373. 9:30-ish, small cover charge. Back we are, to play at the one and only 9 lb. Hammer. We still love this place.

Saturday, June 26, 2004: 9 lb. Hammer, 6009 Airport Way South, in Georgetown. (206) 762-3373. Boy howdy, do we like this bar. Thanks, Scott, for a rousing time. Love that shuffleboard table.

Memorial Day, Monday, May 31, 2004: Folklife! Drums, horns, elephant ears. All these things were present and accounted for (though not on stage with us). And we played some music, and lots of friends and family (and strangers too) swore they could hear us. Glad for that! Also playing were Evangeline and Shawn Smith (venerable Seattle singer of Pigeonhed and Brad fame). They all were great.

Wednesday, April 28, 2004: Victrola Coffee & Art, 411 15th Avenue East, (206) 325-6520. 8-10 p.m., free (thank you for tipping your barista). V is for Victrola. V is also, apparently, for a Very nice crowd.

Saturday, April 10, 2004: 9 lb. Hammer, 6009 Airport Way South, (206) 762-3373, in gorgeous Georgetown! Beers were drunk, as were a few people. I remember something about donuts showing up at closing time. And we had a hoot and a holler playing some songs, too.

Presidents Day, Monday, February 16, 2004: Through Traffic, Molly, at On the House, 1205 E. Pike on Capitol Hill. (206) 324-3974. Some folks read poems, then Trisha read her truly stunning piece. Then the band played four songs to the somewhat surprised but accomodating crowd. Then some more folks read some more. (Thanks to On the House and the Through Traffic, Molly reading series.)

January 29, 2004: Capitol Hill Arts Center (CHAC), 1621-12th Ave, 10:15pm. $5 got you in the door *and* a free copy of our demo CD recorded live by Melissa Dow at the Ethnic Cultural Theater in October. Thanks to Bob Redmond and all the other folks at CHAC, and thanks to everyone for coming. What a lovely space they have there. And good drinks, too.

October 27, 2003: Ethnic Cultural Theater, U-District, 7pm. We played as part of the Monday night music series, and boy did we have fun. Thanks to Melissa for the show and for making a live recording that night that became our demo CD.

September 14, 2002: Sit 'n' Spin (RIP). We opened a benefit for ROCKRGRL Magazine featuring lots of local lovelies, including the luminous Carrie Akre. $5 got folks in the door plus a free zine created by event organizer Tess.Lotta.

Bumbershoot, 2002: Trisha Ready secured a spot in the literary stage lineup and snuck her bandmates and Victoria Howe in for a multimedia-type-funfest. Victoria created a stack of original flip-chart cartoons (bunnies!) and the band played a couple songs to compliment Trisha's written piece. It came together swimmingly. And we get to say that we played Bumbershoot!
