The Shook Twins will return to the island to play an intimate duo set at a fundraiser for Puerto Rico next week, with islander Sarah Christine opening.
Funds raised will be sent to the National Boricua Human Rights Network, an organization composed of Puerto Ricans in the United States and their supporters that educates and mobilizes the Puerto Rican community, the broader Latin American community and others regarding issues of justice, peace and human rights.
The Shook Twins are an Indie folk-pop band hailing from Portland, Oregon. Central to their sound is their wide range of instrumentation: banjo, acoustic and electric guitars, electric bass, mandolin, electronic drums, face drum (beat-box), glockenspiel, ukulele, banjo-head drumming and their signature Golden Egg. Organizers say their twin harmonies layered on acoustic and electric instrumentation, coupled with Laurie’s inventive use of percussive and ambient vocal loops and Katelyn’s re-purposed telephone microphone, set their sound apart, creating a unique and eccentric blend of folk, roots, groove and soul.
The show is set for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 15, at the Vashon Theatre. Tickets are available at the Vashon Theatre box office or online at tinyurl.com/ycbmsgzs.
VIP tickets are $50 and include a pre-show reception with appetizers and beverages at Snapdragon from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. and seats in the first six rows. The Shook Twins will stop by for a meet-and-greet. General tickets are $20 advance general admission and $25 at the door.
Those who are unable to attend and would like to make a donation should contact DebraHeesch@gmail.com or Megan Hastings at Snapdragon.
