Dear Creek
Sat, Aug 23rd, Early Show! 5pm- Dear Creek
Amongst the orange and red fallen from trees lining the Shenandoah River, the duo of Dear Creek was born. In 2009, singer/guitarist, Kate Potrykus, and guitarist, Alex Salser, could be found writing songs between classes and playing local gigs on the weekends. Soon, Dear Creek grew into a 5-piece, inspired by the sounds of the Appalachian Valley in which they were cradled, and the jazz, blues, folk, and rock music, which moved them to become musicians in the first place. Two albums, several tours including a recent 16 State tour, and a few line-ups later, Alex and Kate have stripped down to the very foundation upon which they had started. Now catch Dear Creek live as a duo as they tour the country releasing their newest album, “So it Goes.” Listeners will get tripped up in the roots of Dear Creek’s energetic, acoustic grooves, and leave their show soothed by the sultry sounds of their soaring melodies.

Johnny Azari
Mon, Aug 25th – Johnny Azari with Prichard Harter

Johnny Azari was born in Shiraz, a city known for wine, poetry, opium, and revolution. At only a year old, he was relocated to a city known as New York; noted for grit, madness, money, and proliferation. These things had no influence on him whatsoever.
Azari has scored, Illusions & Mirrors, starring Natalie Portman; shared the stage with, The New York Dolls, Kiss, Nouvelle Vague, Sussan Deyhim; collaborated with Shirin Neshat, Mohsen Namjoo, and David Kahn. A decade of work has seen him release 3 LPS and 6 EP’s, score a feature film, co-write a play for Performa, tour EU and USA, and create a handful of videos for youtube, two of which (occupation blues | freedom glory) enjoyed viral success, all of which has earned him attention from The New York Times, CNN, Huffington Post, Brooklyn Vegan, The New York Observer, and more.
In 2011 he quit his band, citing differences of integrity, and left 10 years of work and his home town, New York City, behind. He moved to the Adirondack mountains where he built Accelerated Entropy Studios. There, he spent a year in solitude and reflection, recording his first solo LP, The Tropic of Entropy. Now, two LP’s and three years later, he lives on the road touring the United States relentlessly.

SEPTEMBER

 

Saved by the Bell movie poster
Monday, Sept 1st – “Unauthorized Saved by the Bell” Movie Release Party with Revolution Brewing. Costumes encouraged!
It’s alright. We all know it’s alright. It surely must be alright, cuz we’re all Saved by the Bell. Labor Day brings the premiere of Lifetime’s original, un-sanctioned, probably completely false back story of who was a jerk, who was (or wasn’t) sleeping with who and who really got to say good morning to Miss Bliss after every sunrise.
Revolution Brewing will be in house giving away schwag (get your SBtB trivia knowledge ready) and we’ll have some of their delicious brews to consume (exact beers tba). Don’t tell Mr. Belding we’ll be drinking at this party!

*BONUS – After the movie we’ll have a dance party, and maybe watch Showgirls without sound (do we really need to hear that dialogue?). *No costumes necessary for the late portion, if you know what I mean…
