mainstage must see ~ Tony Furtado with Lydia Ramsey

Called a genius on the banjo and slide guitar, Tony Furtado creates his own musical interpretations - a hybrid of Americana and indie-rock. Since living primarily on the road for the last two decades, his songs gregariously share stories of his travels in engaging musicianship.

American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Lydia Ramsey, conveys the wildness and free nature of the great northwest in her songs steeped in fingerpick-guitar rudiments of folk music.

See Tony Furtado with Lydia Ramsey on Friday, February 21st, at 8PM at The Triple Door.

musicquarium must see ~ ranger & the "re-arrangers"

Seattle gypsy band Ranger and the "Re-Arrangers" evoke the spirit of a Paris cafe and the raucous energy of a Gypsy campsite with their unique twist on gypsy jazz. Their tight rhythm section features a hand drummer, giving the music a bouncy swing and accentuating the joyful interplay between the two soloists. The band's repertoire includes swing standards, traditional Gypsy melodies, the music of Django and Grappelli, Brazilian chorus, and Ranger's unique originals.  Have a listen here>>

See the Rangers and the "Re-Arrangers" during Happy Hour on Fridays, starting at February 14, at 5PM in the Musicquarium. NO COVER {21+}

mainstage must see ~ habib koité

Malian guitarist Habib Koité is one of Africa's most popular and recognized musicians. Inheriting his passion for music from his paternal grandfather who played the kamele n'goni - a traditional four-stringed instrument associated with hunters from the Wassolou region in Mali, Habib Kiote takes a unique approach to playing guitar. He tunes his instrument to the pentatonic scale and plays on open strings as one would on a kamele n'goni. At other times Habib plays music that sounds closer to the blues or flamenco with a restrained and intimate singing style that varies cadenced rhythms and melodies. 

91.3 KBCS Welcomes Habib Koité on February 6, for TWO SHOWS, 7:30PM and 10:00PM {21+} $25 advance/$30 day of show ::: tickets here>>

mainstage must see ~ Kim Virant & Gerald Collier

In the early nineties, Kim Virant's charismatic vocals echoed through Seattle's music scene as her band, Lazy Susan, routinely sold out shows on the rock venue circuit.

Over the past 20 years, Kim has taken a musical journey transforming her from rock band frontwoman to singer/songwriter focusing on an alternative-country/rootsy guitar-based sound.

Meanwhile, a similar journey was unfolding for the Best Kissers in the World's vocalist/guitarist, Gerald Collier. In 1995, with the disbanding of rock band Best Kissers in the World, Gerald Collier ventured on his musical path solo refashioning himself as an alternative country singer songwriter. 

Kim Virant, joined by Seattle-based songster Gerald Collier, will perform live on Saturday, January 25, at 8 PM at The Triple Door. Tickets available here>>
