Entertainment abounds on The Rock | Arts & Entertainment Briefs
Old-time musicians storm the Red Bike
Expect southern old-time music, served up with instrumental prowess, intricate harmonies and a strong dose of comic timing, when The Brainstormers take the stage for a free show at 8:30 p.m. Friday at Red Bicycle Bistro.
The trio is made up of Tom Sauber, Patrick Sauber and Mark Graham, musicians who have long been inspired by such iconic American musicians as Uncle Dave Macon, Dock Boggs and Red Parham. The show is for all ages until 11 p.m., and 21 and older after that.
Watermark makes the scene at the Roasterie
Watermark, a local folk-rock group that plays original songs and obscure covers of lesser-known tunes by famous artists, will play a free, all-ages show at 7 p.m. Friday at the Vashon Island Coffee Roasterie. The band consists of Roger Taylor, Kevin Almeida and Larry Lawson. The evening will also feature wine tasting starting at 6:30 p.m., hosted by Vashon Winery owner Ron Irvine. He’ll offer four wines, served at a casual pace. Wine will also be available by the glass. For more information about the tasting, visit www.vashonwineclub.org.
Lundeen performs at Nirvana
Nirvana is hosting a free, all-ages concert by local singer/songwriter Cami Lundeen at 7 p.m on Saturday. Lundeen serves up folk and pop music, ranging from soft and intimate songs to more raucous numbers. She plays the acoustic guitar and is often accompanied by a cajon drummer. The cajon, a flamenco box drum, adds flare to her acoustic sound.
Drama Dock musical returns
A rollicking musical described by organizers as the perfect date-night comedy will come to the stage as a benefit for Drama Dock, Vashon’s community theater group. “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change,” stars local thespians Louie Mangione, Marshall Murray, Stephanie Murray and Elizabeth Ripley. The show is back by popular demand, after being staged last year by the same performers.
Performances are 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 30, at Vashon High School. Tickets are on sale now at Vashon Bookshop and www.brownpapertickets.com.
