Matt Andersen w/ special guest

Mariel Buckley

 

Sunday Feb. 5th

*No COVID restrictions at this show*

 

Doors Open at 6pm Show at 6:30pm

 

Matt Andersen has logged countless miles following little white lines down the highway, crossed vast oceans, and left audiences around the world forever changed by his powerful, soul-baring song writing. Those travels have been fueled by a profound devotion to music, a journey that began in New Brunswick with six steel strings. Since then, Andersen’s work has reached spectacular heights through rich arrangements and fruitful collaboration, but at its core, one musical relationship has remained at the very heart of the whole affair. For his latest long-player, the laid-bare House to House, Andersen brings it all back home with the sweet chemistry that only a voice and guitar alone, together, can conjure.

 

Unapologetically genuine, wry, and soft hearted Mariel Buckley has planted her flag firmly as a songwriter who’s in it for the long haul. She aims to find herself squarely on the fringes and exactly where she belongs: singing and writing songs for the underdog. And that’s exactly where her new album ‘ Everywhere I Used to Be’ lives (due out Aug 12, 2022 on Birthday Cake Records).

The Depot Street Syncopators- Mardi Gras Show!!!

 

Feb. 18th

Doors open at 6pm

show at 6:45

*No COVID restrictions at this show*

 

The Depot Street Syncopators formed over a decade ago to bring swinging horn-heavy New Orleans style funk, latin, jazz, and blues to rural Eastern Oregon. The group’s initial plan was to play once a year on Mardi Gras. Over time it became increasingly difficult to stick to such a limited schedule. When the eleven members of the Syncopators break out their instruments, it’s party time. Every show is likely to have several special guests joining the ranks. The group has headlined Cycle Oregon, Tunes After Totality, and many La Grande community celebrations. A majority of the band is comprised of Music Faculty and Alumni from Eastern Oregon University.

March 21st

Doors 6pm Show 6:45pm

Lo Fives is a garage rock band from Portland, OR. Their fuzzy guitars and frenzied drums evoke a DIY aesthetic that captures a PNW basement studio with amply amounts of vitamin D. Lo Fives is an analog band in a digital world that harkens back to time-honored underground rock tropes in the vein of Swell Maps or Mission of Burma, despite the trends that may come and go.

Kiss The Tiger

 

March 27th

Doors open at 6pm show at 6:45

 

At a time when the world seems intent on pushing us further inward and further apart, Kiss the Tiger are here to rattle our bones and bust us out of our cocoons with some good old fashioned rock and roll.

Fronted by the magnetic and disarming Meghan Kreidler, who draws on her background in theater to break the fourth wall between audience and band with her righteous fist pumps and high kicks, this is a band that doesn’t just play. They combust. And watching them set the stage ablaze, it’s hard not to feel that tension that’s been built up in all of us these past few years slowly release, too, like a collective exhale set to ratcheting guitars, buoyant bass lines and Kreidler’s perfectly pitched screams. Theirs is a clean- burning fire. Hell, you might even call it healing.

Blitzen Trapper

 

June 3rd

Doors 6pm Show 6:45pm

*No COVID restrictions at this show*

 

Singer-songwriters have been tackling existential questions about life and death since time immemorial... or at least the 1960s. But when it came to Blitzen Trapper’s newest album, Holy Smokes Future Jokes, front man Eric Earley looked beyond mere existence—or even the end of it—to contend with grander cosmic explorations: namely, the intermediate period between a person’s separate lives on earth, “and what it means to escape the cycle of birth and rebirth,” he explains.

Weighty stuff, to say the least. But then again, Blitzen Trapper has never been the type of band to just skim the surface. Over the course of 20 years and ten full-length albums, the Portland, Oregon-hailing act, with singer, songwriter and guitarist Earley firmly at the helm, has crafted a singular catalog of songs—sometimes wrapped in impressionistic imagery and scruffy, singalong melodies (the fan favorite “Furr,” for just one example), and other times rendered in sharp-focus, needlepoint detail and imbued with driving, electrified rhythms (“Cadillac Road,” about a depressed and deserted mill town in the Oregon mountains where Earley’s father once worked, comes to mind here)— that celebrate the human experience in all its triumph and tragedy.

The Lowest Pair

 

July 11th

Doors 6pm Show 6:45pm

*No COVID restrictions at this show*

 

During the spring and summer of 2020, The Lowest Pair (Kendl Winter and Palmer T. Lee) found themselves camping and sharing songs around the fire with two dear friends and incredible musicians Adam Roszkiewicz and Leif Karlstrom of the instrumental duo “Small Town Therapy”. Founding members of the progressive string band Front Country, multi-instrumentalists Adam and Leif bring a new dynamic palette of colors to Kendl and Palmer’s own instrumental prowess and expressive lyricism.

After sharing a handful of new songs and tunes, (and making immediate fans in the campground) there was no doubt that a record was in the future, and In August of 2020 they spent a week out in Enterprise, Oregon recording at the OK Theater.

The new record Horse Camp leans towards each member’s string band roots and showcases brand new Lowest Pair songs Kendl and Palmer wrote during the strange times of the pandemic. The album also includes an instrumental by each musician involved. It’s an awesome display of how a simple collaboration of friends can result in music that is as organic as it is undeniable.

Cumulus

 

 July 16th

Doors 6pm Show 6:45pm

*No COVID restrictions at this show*

 

Cumulus is the creative outlet for musician Alexandra Lockhart, who’s past two albums have won wide ranging praise from the likes of Stereogum, Interview, Consequence, PASTE, KEXP, Brooklyn Vegan, Seattle Weekly, The Stranger, and NPR Music’s All Songs Considered who lauded the “straight ahead pop” found on her most recent album Comfort World. In tandem with the album announcement, Cumulus is also sharing the new single “Sunbeam,” a warm and inviting blanket of lush guitar tones that builds into a bombastic and bittersweet observance of the obstacles we can put ourselves through when we don’t feel fully deserving of love. It’s a mourning of the time wasted dwelling on the past, with an appreciation of how beautiful it is to be fully vulnerable and open to another human.

Mattiel- Live at Churchill April 13th on our YouTube channel

 

Georgia Gothic, a magic third in Mattiel’s run of full-length albums, was shaped in the quiet seclusion of a woodland cabin in the north of the Atlanta duo’s mother-state; “Some faraway place that just Jonah and I could go where there would be no distractions, nothing else going on, and we could turn everything off and only focus on writing songs”, reflects Mattiel Brown. Where 2017’s self-titled debut and its 2019 follow-up Satis Factory were written with what Jonah Swilleyrefers to as a “hands-off” approach — he arranging the music and Brown the lyrics and vocals, the two working largely separately — the making of Georgia Gothic was, for the first time, a truly collaborative undertaking.
