Red Bicycle Bistro and Sushi has a full lineup this weekend for Island music fans, including a first-time ever appearance on the Island by BLVD, a nationally known touring band.
Several Islanders weighed in last week on plans by the Vashon-Maury Chamber of Commerce to market Vashon to off-Island tourists, with some suggesting the idea made enormous sense while others sounded a note of caution.
For years, the “first Friday” art walk has been a time for Island art lovers to gallery hop, munch on appetizers and help themselves to glasses of wine.
The connection between two women artists, born almost a century apart yet bound together by temperament, talent and a shared love of Vashon, will be celebrated in joint exhibitions slated to open this weekend.
Vashon venues will overflow with musical acts in the next few days, with shows for every taste on tap.
Despite a new law that may temporarily stem the flow of wine at openings (see story, page 1), Vashon’s art spaces are gearing up for a festive First Friday, with receptions planned to launch the openings of several new exhibits. The gallery cruise will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 7. For complete listings, see page 13.
Islanders can groove to a mix of upbeat Indian pop rock, Brazilian samba and Afro-Cuban dance tunes at Vashon Allied Arts’ annual World Music Festival, set for 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 8, at Camp Burton’s outdoor amphitheater.
The Island will be jumping this weekend with a wealth of bands storming the stages all over Vashon.
A comedy troupe named Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad has a Vashon stop planned for July 31, with a show hosted, appropriately enough, by Vashon Havurah.
Red Bicycle Bistro & Sushi is rolling out a musical red carpet for Islanders and visitors alike during Strawberry Festival, with seven musical acts slated to take the stage over the busy weekend.
Some of Vashon’s most prolific and beloved artists have been immortalized by quilters on the 24th annual Vashon Allied Arts Community Quilt, and a lucky winner will get to take the quilt home after a raffle held during Strawberry Festival.
It’s a plant that has been celebrated throughout history for its soothing scent, beautiful blossoms, medicinal properties, culinary uses and even its potent power as an aphrodisiac.
Drama Dock will present “Urinetown,” a Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, from July 9 to 12 and 16 to 19 at Vashon High School.
Dozens of Island photographers are setting out to prove that when it comes to artistic inspiration, there’s no place like home.
Vashon gallery and shop owners will open their doors from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, July 3, to share a bounty of new work by local artists.
Drama Dock is putting the finishing touches on a new production — a celebrated Broadway musical with an odd and edgy title.
In the past year, a soft-spoken man who says he “can’t play an instrument or sing a note” has become one of the most important figures in Vashon’s vibrant music scene.
A bounty of bucolic blooms, inspired artwork, live music and informative workshops will all come together later this month as part of Vashon Allied Arts’ 19th annual Garden Tour.
For every newcomer who meticulously plans a move to Vashon, there are always one or two others who seem to arrive on the Island by chance.
Vashon’s galleries will roll out the red carpet for June’s First Friday Gallery Cruise. Art aficionados, get ready for an artful stroll.
