A band hopes to entice a monster with psychedelic tunes at 8 p.m. this Friday, April 27, at the Red Bicycle Bistro & Sushi.
The wily and elusive “Blue Monster” was allegedly first sighted on Vashon Island back in 2005. Since then there have been numerous reported sightings, although none have been confirmed or documented, leading many to brush aside such tales as a hoax. Despite popular skepticism, a tiny but fierce band of believers have embarked on an ongoing quest to draw the monster out of hiding, and thus prove its existence.
They are convinced that music is the key, and that playing psychedelic instrumental power funk at loud volumes is sure to arouse the creature.
Upon hearing the music, the monster won’t be able to resist the urge to show off its funky dance moves and profound booty shaking abilities in public.
This dedicated group call themselves Blue Monster in honor of the beast. They are: Ken Jacobsen, J.P. Ouellette, Nigel Browne and Tony Mann.
The emcee for the night is Vashon local Richard Moore, who has been doing standup comedy for the last five years, mostly on Vashon. He’s also been at the Comedy Underground in Seattle. The event is all ages until 11 p.m., when it becomes a 21-and-up show. There is no cover charge.
