You get a trio of tremendous talents tonight! Sugarcane continues their journey through the American songbook, adding plenty of their own (soon to be classic) original tunes of heartbreak, searching and a little psychedelic exploration.

Bellingham, Washington's Polecat has quickly established itself in the Northwest, with two records and over 100 shows a year. Their unique instrumentation is comprised of Karl Olson (drums), Jeremy Elliott (electric guitar and vocals), Aaron Guest (vocals and 12 string guitar), Cayley Schmid (fiddle), and Richard Reeves (upright bass). This enables them to seamlessly blend genres including bluegrass, country, celtic, rock, and world music into their sound.

Opening this evening is Renegade String Band a five-piece ensemble that plays Northwest Bluegrass music that’s sure to tickle your wits, soothe your soul, and get your money-maker shaking. Don't miss this barn-burner!

    I’m pretty good friends with these guys but for some reason they won’t just let me in for free all the time. It’s like they want to get paid for their hard work or something….

    I would love to get down low to some Suarcane. as I sit here eating my catfish, I think about the country song that I heard while rolling through the green fields last summer on the last train to Pasco. it said to keep music in your heart. its alright if I don’t win cause the world keeps spinnin’ round…it would be nice to win though… so it goes, I’ll wait for it but, saturday can’t get here soon enough. what I saw last time Sugarcane played, was that they’re crazier than a cold prairie wind blowin through union town.

    Here’s the deal. I am a single 56 year old mom who is raising a 4 and 5 year old. Come on, isn’t that reason enough alone to get the tickets? I haven’t been out of the house execpt to go to a kid thing in months. More reason. I love live music!!! And my final reason is I have to attend two concerts and write a paper for a class I am taking. Did I mention I am also a full time student? So I am obviously broke and can’t afford to pay for tickets on my. PLEASE let me win?!?
