    10- 1 ballroom_thieves

          Martin Earley – Guitar/Vocals,  Devin Mauch – Percussion/Vocals , Calin Peters – Cello/Vocals

    “The room is dark, as feet shuffle and people slowly mill about the open space in front of the barely-lit stage. The hiss as beer cans are cracked open mixes in with the swilling of whiskey and the dropping of ice in glasses and throwaway cups. It’s a lively, talkative crowd that starts moving closer and closer to the stage as the room lights dim and the stage lights come on. All of a sudden, the simple, lightly-strummed chords of “Coward’s Son” echo over that intimate room, and as Martin Earley’s vocals come into play, the melody continues to build, adding layer after layer. The low end of Calin Peters’ cello adds a haunting, echoing rhythm to the bright chime of Earley’s guitar part, while the accents of cymbal hits, djembe, and floor tom from Devin Mauch introduce the heartbeat of the group, their soaring three-part harmonies, with a bang. As the song grows, the band transforms from a folk three-piece in a small room into an arena-filling orchestra of soul, spilling their raw emotions into every microphone and corner. Audiotree said of the performance, “Three unique voices separate and intertwine to emit one call, channeling sounds from the Delta and bits of old Gospel guises and transcends this Boston trio’s urban roots.”

    Truly a high-energy rock trio performing under the guise of well-crafted, emotionally sincere folk, the Thieves have released two well-received EPs since getting their start three years ago. With a strong presence in the Boston area and New England, they have received press from local blog luminaries such as Allston Pudding, who said of the Thieves live performance, “The intensity and passion The Ballroom Thieves had for the songs they delivered- it was hard to believe it was just three of them.” The Thieves have begun to branch out from New England, touring around the country with well-known stalwarts such as The Lone Bellow, Dispatch, Railroad Earth and Houndmouth, among others. “

    Bob Odenkirk (SNL, Breaking Bad) reading, comedy & book signing.

    $40 Ticket – includes one copy of the book “A Load of Hooey”

    “Bob Odenkirk started by writing sketches for his junior high school classes. Inspired by Monty Python, Bob and Ray, and The Credibility Gap, he went on to work in Chicago’s sketch comedy scene. Professionally he has written for the TV shows “Saturday Night Live”(where he famously wrote “The Motivational Speaker” sketch, and “The Ben Stiller Show” (where he wrote the infamous “Manson Lassie” sketch), and then Bob went and created (and starred in) “Mr. Show with Bob and David”, which has been called “the American Monty Python”. He’s also had a creative hand in creating Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! And The Birthday Boys sketch show on IFC.

    Since Mr. Show finished production he has written, acted in, and directed many films and TV pilots.  As an actor, Bob has had memorable roles as the agent Stevie Grant on “TheLarry Sanders Show”, the character of Saul Goodman AMC’s “Breaking Bad”, and Director Alexander Payne’s Oscar-nominated film “Nebraska”.

    Through it all, Bob has written comedy scripts and short essays. Some of these have appeared in THE NEW YORKER, VICE magazine, and FILTER magazine, among other publications. A LOAD OF HOOEY is a collection of these short pieces, and Bob considers it the “best thing” he’s “ever done”.

    ADVANCE TICKETS:  No tickets via Brown Paper or Abbey. Tickets usually go onsale through The Moth email system about 1 week before the show but we can’t guarantee when. Sign up on their Seattle email list to get notifications (they sell out fast, sometimes within the hour).  Note: Premium tickets let you get in early and skip the big line but do not guarantee a seat if you’re not there at 6:45.

    WAITING LIST: About 20-50 spots are available at the door ($8 cash only) and we have a convenient waiting list system for you.  Here’s how it works: Simply line up when you can (lines often start by around 5:30/6pm but we recommend sitting at Uneeda Burger or Pecado Bueno to watch the line) and then the waiting list goes up outside on the door promptly at 6:30pm.  Once you sign up, feel free to grab dinner across the street and check back in at 8pm as actual entry will be based on space available at 8pm only, so you have to be outside the Abbey at 8pm as we read down the list until full.

    Signup on the Abbey email newsletter to find out other ways to get into The Moth such as the hard to get Volunteer spots!

    We serve local Hilliards beer & Washington wine from Wilridge Winery. You’re welcome to bring in dinner while you wait for the show to start but we ask that you not eat during the event due to the quiet nature of storytelling (and no smelly food like Paseo please). The Moth is 1st Thursdays @ the Abbey every month, see calendar for Holiday schedule.

    3-22-lindaperhacs1X6A6180_630

    *TICKETS AT THE DOOR TONIGHT, OPENS 7PM*
    Album release tour, Asthmatic Kitty Records

    with Jim Camacho

    “Linda Perhacs’ Parallelogram is the stuff of legend. Released quietly in 1970, the LP remained for years that rare example of a recording career consisting of a lone, largely forgotten, masterpiece of an album. Rediscovered, re-released and recognized years later, it inspired a new generation of musicians with its pure, guileless vocals, mystical lyrics, and visionary production.

    But now, the Linda Perhacs story is finally entering its its second chapter, as the admiration of fans ranging from Devendra Banhart to Daft Punk has persuaded her to follow up her classic debut with a new release on Asthmatic Kitty Records. With her sophomore album, The Soul of All Natural Things, Perhacs is picking up where she left off.

    It helps that her first record’s precocious lyrics and prescient sonics made that album sound as if it could have been released yesterdaybut Perhacs’ voice remains so ageless, and her message so timeless, that her sophomore effort sounds almost as if it could have come out four decades ago. Whatever the case, it’s like she never went away.”
