Man, what a sweet show last Sunday night.
We raised nearly $500 for the amazing folks at Red Lodge Transition Services. What an honor to work with such a fantastic group of folks. This is the second time we’ve featured the organization, and we always go home with a huge smile on our faces and a pretty serious case of the warm fuzzies.
We had 2 8 Tha Native back to open the show, and he brought along his friend Jordan Wheeler. The two of them ran the gamut of music, from traditional native singing and drumming to country, folk, rock and hip-hop. These guys can bring it – I suggest you make a point of checking them out – you’ll thank me. Serious.
Tony Eagleheart Garcia headlined. I hadn’t heard him before, but he came very highly recommended by folks in the know. And he did not disappoint. The man has a stunning voice, and a simple message: Life is sacred, a blessing and Creators sacred gift.. He had the audience hanging on every word as he interspersed his beautiful music with little story-gems on what a long, strange trip it’s been.
“This is a very belated, but heartfelt thank you for supporting Rahab’s Sisters through While Rome Burns. I love what you all are doing for important causes in these difficult times, and I’m so grateful that you included radical hospitality among them.
I look forward to staying connected and coming to future events (we were out of town for this last one, and I’m so disappointed because it looked amazing). Incredibly appreciative of your generosity and creativity!
Anneliese Davis, Rahab’s Sisters“
Coming Up In December
Hold onto your jingle bells – our December show is gonna be epic! We’ll be raising money for a great little organization called Free Hot Soup (the name’s kinda self-explanatory) at a time of year when what they provide is so dearly needed. The show will be featuring the little strummer boy himself, Mr. Ben Rice, and PDX blues icon Sheila Wilcoxson. It’s promises to be a fantastic way to cap off the year – mark your calendar for Sunday, December 23.
We’ll have more details soon,. Meanwhile, here’s a tasty little taste from Mr. Rice to get you going:
