Skylark Celebrates Three Years In Business With Four Local Acts

Once, Twice, Three Times a Lady-Owned Rock Club

SEATTLE, WA - June 5th, 2009 - The party commences at 8pm with throat-singing, tabla-playing DJ Baba James, continues with the downtempo Deepsleep Narcotics Company, kicks it up a notch with westside country-punk heroes The Stevedore, and culminates with indie rock awesomeness The Apple War. The traditional third wedding anniversary gift is "leather," but we don't recommend wearing it to this show. You'll overheat.

Skylark Cafe & Club is quite happy to announce its third year beating the odds. "Bad news affecting the industry is everywhere these days and people are definitely adjusting their lifestyles," says Jessie SK, owner and booking agent. "We've never charged a cover, and now we're adding a $5 lunch menu and a few domestic draft beers to help lower your tab this summer."

Highlights of the past year have been...

• Playing some of our favorite local acts on the air with Megan Seling at 107.7 The End's Locals Only
• Hooking up turntables to the sound system and launching Spin Your Wax on Tuesday evenings
• The amazing 2008 Halloween party with Apple War, We Wrote The Book On Connectors, H Is For Hellgate and more local bands battling to win the Golden Cowbell:
• Getting this sweet review on

New stuff we are excited about...

• Partnering with Shoofly Pie Company to bring you a variety of freshly baked desserts:
• Offering bands multi-track recordings of their set (!) in partnership with The Brewery:
• Redesigned website at

Some things never change...

• Free, live, original local and touring musical acts Thursday through Sunday, all ages shows on Sunday evenings
• Family-friendly homemade lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch for great prices
• Full menu until midnight Tuesday through Saturday
• Yummy cocktails with premium wells, discounted daily from 3 to 6pm
• Open turntables, open mic, karaoke and weekly chances to win cash money for trivia

Now Available At Skylark: Shoofly Pie!

We are proud to announce a sweet partnership with Shoofly Pie Company up at the West Seattle Junction. Starting this week, we will be offering delicious desserts by Kimmy and her team of talented bakers, starting with the classic "shoofly pie" itself. If you've never tried it before, you are in for a treat! Think crumbles of molasses, brown sugar, and butter...flaky, sticky, carmelized...mmmmmm. We'll be serving slices oven-warmed and a la mode. Just the thing for after dinner, or for a midnight snack after a show!

"Shoofly Pie Company began in 2004 with a single strawberry-rhubarb pie baking in the oven of the Ballard apartment shared by Kimmy Hsieh Tomlinson and her husband, Zak. Kimmy fell in love with the art and science of baking, and the beautiful simplicity and rustic quality of a good, handmade pie. She started sharing this with friends and family, and soon the dreams of opening a small retail bakery were born."

On Friday we're getting a strawberry-rhubarb pie to celebrate impending summertime, so you can order that one all weekend as well...while supplies last. Don't make me eat it all myself (because I will).
