Skylark Celebrates Five Year Anniversary on 6/3 With (Surprise!) A Five Dollar Rock Show
This year Skylark returns to the basics for its five year mark with local musician Zach Davidson, described in the Seattle Times as “a dynamic singer with terrific range, big-time stage charisma and Roger Daltrey looks.”
Davidson emerged on the scene with Vendetta Red, who were signed to Epic Records and charted at #1 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers. Following the band’s breakup in 2006, he formed Sirens Sister. We are thrilled to host his first solo appearance for our anniversary show. Opening act is singer/songwriter Chris Bridges.
Highlights of the past year at Skylark have been...
Electrifying! The 4th annual Come As You Aren't Halloween party rocked so hard it caused a surprise power outage during the last act.
Titillating! Sold out New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day burlesque performances, plus the introduction of monthly burlesque on last Thursdays.
Giving! Participated in Dining Out For Life, West Seattle For Japan, Taste of West Seattle, ThinkLocal! and introduced Scrabble Tournaments for local charities.
Growing! We opened Monday nights (featuring Karaoke with Kelli) and started booking singer/songwriters on Tuesdays.
Procreating! Our Kitchen Manager Tony and former bartender Tara made an adorable baby boy, Luca.
Some things never change...
Still presenting live, original local and touring bands Thursday through Sunday, and all ages shows on Sunday evenings.
Still offering bands a high-quality multitrack recording of their set for just $20.
Still providing family-friendly homemade dinner and weekend brunch, full menu until midnight every night but Sunday, and a cheap happy hour from 3 to 6 daily.
Friday, June 3. 21+ Doors are at 8pm. Tickets are available at brownpapertickets or at the door.

Radio8Ball show with The Young Evils is tonight! We are very excited to finally see Skylark employee Mackenzie in action on the Skylark stage. Doors at 8pm, $12 cover, 21+ only.
And rather unexpectedly, it is also the last night of Radio8Ball as The Janks have cancelled their Sunday appearance.
Since The Janks were the only act scheduled on Sunday and Radio8Ball does not function without a live musical act, we are closing early at 3:00pm on Sunday May 8 to do some spring cleaning. Sorry for any inconvenience!
Do bring mom down for Sunday Mother's Day brunch tomorrow in between 9:00am and 3:00pm! We'll have a special eggs benedict and a sweet special too. Yum.
