New Year's Eve Burlesque is a Saturday this year!

This is it! Some would say 2012 is the last year of our current civilization...the apocalyptic year...the year of Mayan armageddon. We say whatever, let's continue to party like it's 1999 (like we have been since 1999). The best place to do that is at Skylark in West Seattle on Saturday, December 31st.

Start the evening off with a delicious dinner and/or cocktails, or just be here at 9:00pm for the burlesque and bellydancing entertainment provided by:

Miss Elaine Yes
Julia Ghoulia
Chesty LaRue
Scandal From Bohemia
La Petite Mort
Whisper De Corvo

$10 adv / $12 door
Available at Stranger Tickets.
Includes champagne toast at midnight.

Holiday open mic FRIDAY 12/23 (or Christmas Eve-Eve)

Since tonight is monthly bellydancing (a special Winter Solstice edition no less), Tuesday's acoustic open mic will be back next week. However! Not only can you come to Wednesday's open mic tomorrow after trivia ends at 9pm (acoustic and/or full band), we have added a second Christmas-themed open mic to Christmas Eve-Eve, also known as Friday, December 23rd.

Any and all holiday season songs welcome, secular or Christmas or Hanukkah...all fair game.

We'll have warming holiday drink specials and hearty meals available of course.

See you on Christmas Eve-Eve!

Crafts & Draughts Last-minute Holiday Shopping TOMORROW

Tomorrow, Saturday, December 17, from 4:00pm to 7:00pm:

Get your draughts and browse some crafts while being entertained by DJ Create spinning vintage soul (you didn't want more Christmas muzak, did you? us neither). 

Eleven artists/crafters will have their wares on display. See their websites here at the Facebook event.

There will also be a "Make Your Own Ornament" table and some vinyl records for dirt cheap.

Happy hour prices (as always) 3:00pm to 6:00pm, so there's a fair amount of overlap there!

See you tomorrow.

MARCO BENEVENTO comes to Skylark 12/10

This one is going to sell out, so I recommend high-tailing it to The Stranger Ticketing now to get your tickets...

December 10
$15 adv / $17 dos

Nefarious Productions Presents:
MARCO BENEVENTO with Nefarious Jones

For an exhilarating glimpse into the future of rock piano, look no further than Marco Benevento. A melodically inventive musical adventurer who artfully employs pedals, amplifiers, circuit-bent toys and sundry effects around his acoustic piano set-up, Benevento has forged a fascinating repertoire of songs, including both wildly original compositions and renditions of those by the likes of Leonard Cohen, Pink Floyd and My Morning Jacket.

Benevento first came to national attention with the experimental electric rock influenced Benevento-Russo Duo for which he partnered with drummer Joe Russo. Together they brought a bracing jolt of improvisation into settings like Lollapalooza, Fuji Rock and Bonnaroo. On his own Benevento has collaborated with the likes of Matt Chamberlain, Trey Anastasio and Mark Eitzel, while also holding down keys in the bands Garage A Trois and Surprise Me Mr. Davis. Benevento’s primary focus is his trio with whom he's released three critically acclaimed solo albums that have led to a number of prestigious appearances, including Carnegie Hall, Montreal Jazz Festival and Celebrate Brooklyn. In 2009, he also partnered in The Royal Potato Family, an indie record label that features a growing catalog of groundbreaking releases.

Benevento is currently touring in support of his latest LP, 'Between The Needles & Nightfall, ' however on his upcoming West Coast run he'll also have a new limited edition 7-inch available with two previously unreleased tracks "Escape Horse" and "Fireworks."
