About the Artists:

Robyn Hitchcock -
"A gifted melodist, Hitchcock nests engaging lyrics in some of the most bracing, rainbow-hued pop this side of Revolver. He wrests inspiration not from ordinary life but from extraordinary imaginings..."
—Rolling Stone

""As a performer, he’s as much a wandering bard as a rock star.""
—The Believer

“Some spectral, lingering, emotional thundercloud hangs over The Man Upstairs... harks back to that infinitely distant yet eternally resonant emotional big bang”

Emma Swift

“Swift has created a dreamy intoxicated world where the heavy-lidded noir crawl of bands like Mazzy Star and Spain co-exist with late-night honky tonk bars, tear-stained sheets and flickering neon signs.” – Chris Familton, Post To Wire

"Swift’s music shimmers. It is raw and minimalist, a throw back to a simpler time, when country music was earthy and real... Her songs create a dreamy landscape, where laid-back laments on romance take the listener down a river of reflected melancholy and heartbreak." - Harold Lepidus

SUPPORT: We serve local beer from Two Beers Brewing Co.; local cider from Seattle Cider Company and Schilling Cider; Washington wine from Wilridge Winery & Vineyard, a rotating cocktail from Sound Spirits.
