St. Ophelia

Saint Ophelia brings an Alternative Folk Rock sound to the stage with their original songs that run the gamut from rocking to spacious. Singer-songwriter Joseph Panzetta and vocalist Rebekah Bevilacqua Kuzma front a stellar band that includes Dan Tyack on pedal steel and Wesley Peterson on drums.  They will be joined by Chuck Keller on bass.

The uniqueness of Saint Ophelia’s sound lies within the blend of its vocals, musicianship, and eclectic original songs within a vast range of styles. This makes listening to Saint Ophelia a unique and visceral experience.

One of the band’s stand-out qualities are the harmonies of lead singers Rebekah and Joe. Rebekah‘s vocal talent comes from years of classical training, singing in choirs and being a church cantor. The two sang together for the first time on the Voice of Vashon radio show, Live on the Highway, and came away knowing they had to collaborate more. From there, they say the band just happened.

As an audience member, you hear their sound in the totality of finely tuned collaboration. They are all using their instruments in innovative and masterful ways that blends together into a harmonic presentation that is something quite different and enjoyable.

The fun is visible in their live performances. The bandmates are connected and are locked-in with each other as the songs seem to move through them more than coming from them. Michael Marcus’ jazz training is evident in his masterful bass playing, and Dan Tyack takes the songs to new heights with his leads. Tyack, a consummate innovator on the steel guitar, who has performed and recorded with artists such as Derek Trucks, Jackson Brown, Graham Nash, and Bill Frisell, said, “this is the best playing I’ve ever done. This music just explodes at you with all these ideas you haven’t heard before. This is the best music I’ve ever been involved with.”

Vashon Events & Tyrel Stendahl present: Wild Moccasins (Houston, TX) return to Vashon performing songs from their fantastic new album “Look Together” for what sure will be an epic all-ages dance party not soon to be forgotten! Island teen punk brother band 20 Eyes to provide support.

Fronted by Zahira Gutierrez (vocals/keyboard) and Cody Swann (guitar/vocals), Wild Moccasins’ forthcoming third full-length serves as a new beginning for the group. Look Together tackles themes of repairing relationships, shedding insecurities, and fresh starts, with vibrant guitar and synth lines layered under Gutierrez’s soaring pop melodies. The impassioned 12-track LP began to form merely a week after the release of 2014’s 88 92, as Gutierrez and Swann’s decade-long romantic relationship dissolved.

Healing proved to be a burdensome task, as Wild Moccasins were charted for two years of extensive touring. Gutierrez and Swann would spend countless hours positioned in a shared tour van, painfully staring each other down on stage and ultimately exchanging exaggerated he-said-she-said’s through songwriting.

“When you’re going through a breakup it’s not uncommon for heartache to steer your mind toward resentment,” Swann says. “But I never imagined how jarring it would be to hear it sung to me on stage.”

Emotionally aggressive tracks like “Doe-Eyed Dancer” examine the complexities of observing an ex from afar, as Gutierrez bitingly sings, “And I bet you thought you wouldn’t get caught/It’s not entirely her fault/But she will never love you, no.” The combative opener, “Boyish Wave,” tackles misguided judgment through feisty guitar riffs and antagonistic percussion. Look Together’s title track details love lost and the respective vows that come with the territory, while the album closes with the deeply pain-stricken, “Waterless Cup,” in which Gutierrez laments through flawless vocals, “After all, I’m the one who poured the salt/The one with the change of heart/After all, it’s all my fault.”

Gutierrez and Swann began their writing partnership roughly a year into their romantic relationship, in 2007. The group has undergone numerous roster changes over the years, but currently exists with the addition of Avery Davis (drums) and original member Nicholas Cody (bass). The dynamic quartet’s 2009 debut release, Microscopic Metronomes, is purely indie rock-driven, bolstered by dancey guitar riffs and tightly knit vocal harmonies; while full lengths, Skin Collision Past (2011) and 88 92 saw the band add more new wave influences with shimmering synth underlays. Their latest effort is highly pop-powered, with Ben H. Allen (Gnarls Barkley, Deerhunter, Animal Collective) at the production helm. Recorded at Atlanta’s Maze studios, Allen encouraged the group to revise their approach to the writing and recording process. The result is a diverse album that blends the signature, guitar-driven elements of Wild Moccasins’ early discography with expansive electronic and ’80s/’90s pop components.

For most romantically intertwined bands, Look Together would have never happened. Dissolving the group would seem to be the logical conclusion of their romantic split, but instead, the former couple chose to reconcile their differences the only way they knew how – working towards a common musical goal. Songwriting has been habitually engrained in the duo, and while being emotionally vulnerable with a former partner was difficult, it helped to construct the bridge between confusion and solidarity, culminating as a resilient and volatile break-up record co-written by exes.

“I think we look back on that time and take some comfort in knowing that we went through that together,” Swann says. “It needed to happen in order for us to have this resolve.”

“Yeah, it needed to happen,” Gutierrez adds. “Now, when I sing the songs, I find myself breathing a sigh of relief.”

20 Eyes is a hardcore punk band from Vashon. It’s just two brothers. Frosty and Jake. They mix genres. Their influences range from Minor Threat to Beastie Boys. The bass and drums duo brings the highest energy show possible.

Put on your dancing shoes, your skinny ties, those sartorial dark-rimmed glasses and lets swango again like we did last night.

Delilah Pearl and the Mantarays crafts a signature sound and a style all their own. Throw in a bit of 1940’s hepcat jazz, a heap of modern soul and R&B, a smoky torch ballad and there you have the simmer, Delilah Pearl reinventing the classic diva with shades of Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone and “Lady Day”.

The Mantarays, always dressed to the nines — stylish threads togged to the bricks, reat pleat with a drape shape! — deliver the goods freshened by year’s of gigging in all sort of genres from jazz to rock to soul to bossa nova to the avant garde. DPM — making hay, making waves, making whoopee since 2012.

We’ve got a killer double feature for you tonight!

Society of the Silver Cross is led by husband and wife duo Joe Reineke and Karyn Gold-Reineke of Seattle’s famed recording studio Orbit Audio and includes Sebastian Brown Glad on bass and Tim Nurczyk on mellotron and shahi baaja.

Society of the Silver Cross draw inspiration from their many trips to India, it’s rich musical textures, traditional chanting and spiritual wisdom. The core instruments are 12-string acoustic guitar, harmonium, rare and esoteric synthesizers, B3 organ, mellotron, and shahi baaja (Indian autoharp).

Everything about Society of the Silver Cross is heavy with mystery: they lure the listener into their sound, and their world, like ghost lights in a dense forest. Follow, if you dare, and what you’ll discover is a band that has developed a singular style – one that draws from darker, more cinematic moods, textures and cosmic atmospheres resulting in an otherworldly blend of musical bliss.

Seattle band Loose Wing’s sound is a swirling blend of psychedelic Americana and old-school college rock, dark and haunting yet rooted in indie-pop tradition. Songs are written by Claire Tucker, whom you may recognize as guitarist and vocalist from local psychgaze mainstays Black Nite Crash. Claire is joined by her husband Jack Peters (Mindie Lind, Battle Hymns) on bass, and the lineup is filled out by local greats Rusty Willoughby (of Flop, Pure Joy, Cobirds Unite) on drums and Bill Patton (Fleet Foxes, J. Tillman, Gold Leaves) on pedal steel and guitar.

The songs are informed by a broad history of rock fandom and experience as performers. Claire draws songwriting inspiration from Kate Bush, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Low, Beach House, R.E.M., and 60’s girl groups. Loose Wing recently recorded several songs at Seattle studio Crackle & Pop with engineer/producer Johnny Sangster. Their full-length album will be released in early 2019.

Loose Wing recently recorded several songs at Seattle studio Crackle & Pop with engineer/producer Johnny Sangster.  Two tracks from this session were released in October of 2018 as 12″ single. Their full length album might just be ready for this show at the Red Bike!  Fingers crossed!
