Paint Nite painting party www.paintnite.com
7:00pm
Paint Nite® is a new concept of blending two timeless pastimes, artistic painting and drinking cocktails, as a way to draw patrons into local pubs with a unique opportunity to socialize and be creative. The 2-hour Paint Nite painting parties are held daily with 25+ people in attendance who follow the step-by-step instructions of one master local artist from blank canvas to masterpiece. Paint Nite® is about making art accessible to people who don’t consider themselves artists or creative in any way. Paint Nite is about fostering a fun, low stress, non-judgmental environment that inspires everyone to enjoy the process of creating something from nothing. We want the anxiety that people may feel about doing something “wrong”, to be displaced by a fun night of socializing with friends and having a relaxing, creative time. For many customers, Paint Nite will be a novel and memorable experience, as many have not touched a paint brush since elementary school. Find us at www.paintnite.com.

Sunshine & The Knights
10:00pm

Sunshine is Amy Santos and Steven Ferrara, an artistic partnership based in Brooklyn NY. Their full-length self-produced debut CD "Down and Up Blues" is a musical time capsule of songs and experiences from 2009-2013. They grew up listening to indie rock and grew out listening to traditional jazz, blues and Brazilian roots music. Listeners will hear these influences throughout the record. Sunshine is returning to the studio in September to record 9 songs with their 6 piece live band, The Knights. Both a small tour of Europe and USA's East and South will follow. The Knights consists of The Reverend Crawford Forbes on trumpet, Mike Lambert on electric guitar, Pitti on drums and Dylan Thurston on piano. When inspired to live, all 6 of the band members sing in harmony.

Rising UK singer songwriter Chris Ford returns. 
11:30pm
Recently described as a more cerebral Ed Sheeran.
During a mad cap adventure to New York Chris had the amazing opportunity of meeting up with John Cale of The Velvet Underground. John encouraged Chris to go down to Greenwich Village where he stepped onto the stage for the first time to perform his own songs. Chris returned to the UK and began writing his first album This Atlantic Low. Released in Ireland, My Strength My Weakness and The Morning Light achieved widespread airplay on national radio. Chris did two tours of Ireland and several radio sessions including RTE 2. Going back to basics on his next album All Caught Up, an album inspired by Bruce Springsteens Nebraska, the track When The Sun Grows Cold started picking up very strong radio support around the UK. Chris was invited by 21 BBC regional radio stations to perform sessions and interviews. This included BBC Manchester, Cambridge, Merseyside and York. After signing with Cooking Vinyl Music Chris has been recording tracks for his next album with Pascale Giovetto [My Bloody Valentine, Elvis Costello, Bjork] and also recently with Canadian producer Arun Chaturvedi [Canadian producer of the year 2011]. Chris is currently embarking on a series of dates in the US in October where he is also going to be doing several co-writing sessions.

Professor Gall
10:30pm
A Tincture of Junkyard Folk and Steampunk Jazz'. Professor Gall seeks to uncover the contradictions of an ambiguous and native-less society, 'dreaming the existentialists' dream', while at the same time pleading for individualism, peace, and more fun at funerals. The Portland, Oregon conglomerate starts with Drew Norman on vocals, guitar, percussion stomp box and banjo, who brings his theatrical experience to the musical stage and is responsible for the initial musical and lyrical embellishments. Drew's recent side roles include the 'Husband' in the stage and movie version of Sally Tomato's TOY ROOM(Severe Enterprises), a rock opera that won accolades from The Heart of England Film Festival, studio recordings and live shows with Will West, Kory Quinn, Orchestre L' Pow and the Wanderlust Circus. Scott Johnston heads up the first chair position for the horn section, arranging charts and providing his saxophone alchemy. Rounding out the ensemble is Monte Skillings on trombone, John Stewart(Live Wire, Storm Large), Sean Hudson(Orchestre L' Pow) on stand-up bass, Don Henson(Sneakin' Out)and Andrew Alikhanov(Chervona) on clarinet. Critical acclaim for their first full length CD 'Intravenous Delusion' has enabled Professor Gall to become a regional favorite, sharing the stage with semi-national/national acts like The Devil Makes Three, Eric McFadden Trio, Slim Cessna's Auto Club, Billy Nayer Show, Vagabond Opera, the Dandy Warhols and Sleepytime Gorilla Museum at venues throughout the West Coast as well as festivals and conventions like the Folklife Festival (Seattle,WA), Gearcon (Portland,OR), Teslacon (Madison,WI) and Steamcon( Bellevue, WA)Wild Wild West Steampunk Con (Tucson,AZ). The band released in March of 2010 their sophomore release entitled 'The Psychology of Booze and Guilt' to rave reviews. PG's third release, 'Magnetic Roots' came out on April 20th, 2013. Professor Gall was recently featured by Seattle's City Arts Magazine as the Portland, Oregon representative of the National Steampunk Movement, along with the Dresden Dolls (Boston), Abney Park (Seattle) and Unwoman(San Francisco). 'Hailing from Portland, this group brings one word to mind: eccentricity... the group achieves a gritty and unnerving carnival feel, as if the Mad Hatter were the ringmaster.' Full Steam Ahead Article, Matt Hammond & Jennifer Tate , Seattle's City Arts Magazine, October 31, 2010 'With blaring horns and a sideshow barker's twisted way with words, there is a sinister carnival feel to Booze and Guilt (somewhere between Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes and Bikini Kill's ode to carnies and Mötley Crüe mirrors, "Carnival"), If a haunted midway is your thing, Professor Gall just made your day. If not, stay the hell out of the big top.' Ezra Ace Caraeff, The Portland Mercury ' Norman's voice recalls Tom Waits' or Nick Cave's, while the instrumental lineup suggests a killer New Orleans jazz band going interestingly off-track harmonically.' Michael Upchurch, The Seattle Times, Concert Preview 'Norman's songs, which blend a mix of influences from klezmer to jazz and junkyard folk, are also unusually sweet and sincere.' Michael Mannheimer, Wweek 'This Portland collaborative effort prides itself on being the good kind of weird as they mash up old-timey, sometimes Vaudevillian but mostly joyous swing numbers...sounds like something you'd find on Tim Burton's iPod' The Source Weekly , Bend, OR 'No romp through the Bridge City's underpasses would be complete without Professor Gall, the living avatar of cheap whiskey. Astride his mighty stomp box, the Professor and his banjo lead a streetwise horn section in an ongoing siege of the straight life' Noah Michens of the Wanderlust Circus 'It's not a sailing vessel, mind you, it's a riverboat. There's crazy cajuns wailing Hasidic Dixie niguns in a smoky, pre-flood 4th Ward dive. There's cool jazz cats backing a honky-tonk cowboy aboard a beer bottle prairie schooner.' from review of Magnetic Roots,SP Clarke The GOOD, the BAD and the UGLY
