The Bygones

Secondhand Shows present
The Bygones
Allison Young and Joshua Lee Turner

  7:30p / doors 6:30p
  $20 (advance) / $25 (day of show)
  all ages

The Bygones are an indie folk duo consisting of Allison Young and Joshua Lee Turner. Their sound ties together unexpected genres, from traditional jazz to 70's singer-songwriter, classic country to bossa nova. Josh's classical guitar background and ear for vocal harmony provide the underpinning for Allison's powerful songwriting and nostalgic voice, in duo arrangements which are intricate yet accessible, classic yet fresh.

Josh and Allison first worked together in 2018, recording a cover of Willie Nelson’s "Crazy", which now has over 4 million YouTube views. They soon realized that their musical styles were a natural fit for one another, and in 2022 they recorded their first EP, May 9-12, which they toured to sold out audiences across the UK later that year.

Josh and Allison made their US debut as The Bygones in 2023, selling out shows in New York City and Nashville. This show will be part of a national tour in support of their first full-length album of original music, coming out Spring 2024.

  all ages

Raised in the cow-ridden outskirts of a Texas city, Grace Gardner is pushing the bounds of the singer/songwriter genre. Her writing takes on an evocative nature. Grace plays 10 instruments but weaving orchestral, brass, percussive, and software-based elements into her creations. Along with being a singer, songwriter, and instrument player, Grace is also a producer, music educator, and arranger.

Mae Krell is in the midst of a new era. Over a production backdrop of chirping birds, swirling guitars and children playing, Mae expresses herself through introspective lyrics with a newfound maturity and understanding. Following a two-year hiatus, the 22 year-old made her return in early 2020 with a string of soft, folk-pop singles. Influenced by revered singer-songwriters like Bob Dylan, Phoebe Bridgers and Gregory Alan Isakov, Mae writes intimate reflections about confronting past struggles, self-love and personal truths.

Mae’s work in the music industry began in high school, photographing live music for the likes of Rolling Stone and Sony RCA, and founding an online music publication- Tongue Tied Magazine. At age 17, Mae wrote and released her first two singles, Monsters and Scars.

Mae wrapped up 2023 with her first international endeavor: a 3 week long UK tour in partnership with Sofar Sounds. Now, she’s back home in Brooklyn and preparing to lay her heart on the line with her debut album, (i think) i might be grown due for release on April 19th.

This campy cult classic (which unfortunately, we can't name here, but you can watch the trailer over there) is the most popular midnight movie of all time.  A corn-fed all-American couple stumbles onto a creepy castle one night when their car breaks down, entering a world they never dreamed existed. The castle turns out to be inhabited by a collection of kinky Transylvanian freaks led by a mad bisexual transvestite.  The film gained notoriety as the most successful midnight movie ever, in which hundreds of cult fans show up in costume and act out scenes from the movie.

You are not allowed to bring your own props.  Prop kits are available at the show.  Prop kits include rice (during the wedding scene at the very beginning, throw yours in celebration), a newspaper (during the rain scene, keep dry), noise maker (during the creation speech, celebrate and MAKE SOME NOISE), toilet paper (when the doctor breaks through the lab wall, hurl your "scotts" tissue), and toast (make your toast during the birthday dinner...toss it), will be available at the show for $4.  YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO COME IN COSTUME.

Doors open at 11:00pm.  Virgin sacrifice before the show.  The movie begins at Midnight.

For more than 50 years, NEKTAR has taken legions of fans on audio-visual journeys to far reaches of the universe and the depths of the ocean with their immersive blend of sight and sound. In 2024, the band celebrates the release of a brand new release. It's going to be exciting to experience this new music! Plus, the band has a new concert CD/DVD release, as well as two new CD/DVD 50th anniversary box set releases of their iconic albums Remember The Futrue and Recycled.

Nektar blends a jam-band vibe with superb musicality, along with a multi-media light and video show that perfectly complements the music. A Nektar show is an unparalleled feast for the senses.

Nektar features two of the original members: Derek "Mo" Moore (bass guitar, vocals) and Mick Brockett (visual environment). Ryche Chlanda (guitar, vocals) and Randy Dembo (bass guitar, bass pedals, 12-string guitar, vocals) are alums of previous Nektar incarnations. World-class multi-instrumentalist Kendall Scott is a wizard on keyboards. With the recent death of founding member drummer Ron Howden, the band has enlisted Jay Dittamo to join the band.

Puppeteers For Fears present
CTHULHU: The Musical!
A Rock'n'Roll comedy retelling of the horror classic,
  "The Call Of Cthulhu". performed by puppets and a live band.

  8:000p / doors 7:00p
  $20 (advance) / $25 (day of show)
  all ages (17+ suggested)

A rock'n'roll retelling of the horror classic "The Call of Cthulhu". performed entirely with puppets.

Detective LaGrasse is searching for a murderer. Francine Thurston's uncle vanished. The only clue to both mysteries is a bizarre statue worshiped by a nightmarish cult. And it's leading both of them out to sea, toward a mysterious island from their nightmares-and toward insanity. But, you know, with singing puppets.

Puppeteers for Fears, Oregon's premier rock'n'roll puppet troupe, presents an original show that, in a sensible universe, would be impossible: a feature-length musical comedy adaptation of one of the least musical or comedic stories ever: H.P. Lovecraft's cosmic horror classic, The Call of Cthulhu-performed entirely with puppets, and a live band. See noir detectives, dancing tentacles, anarchist pirates, broken-hearted academics, sassy monsters, and more, as they sing and dance their way to love, madness, and possibly the end of the world.

Written by Josh Gross, and directed by Katy Curtis. Starring Forest Gilpin, Alex Giorgi, Hunter Prutch, Alyssa Mathews, and Owen Webb. Featuring live music from Scott Howard and the Teenwolf Experience.

"You haven't truly experienced Lovecraft's madness until you've experienced it in its truest form: As a puppet musical." - The Portland Mercury
"The most blasphemous ritual of singing and dancing since Chicago." - SyFy Wire
"I don't even like puppets. But that was some next-level puppet shit." - Susan, audience member

legendary UK Psychedelic Rock band

  all ages

Since its beginnings in 1969, GONG have released albums which created genres, defied genres, and taken people on musical journeys around the stars and back to Earth, all with a bit of "love, from Planet Gong".

Over the decades, with each new album and new tour, Gong have forged new musical pathways, with members moving in and out of the band as the muse would appear or depart. Along the way, Gong has brought influential kindred into the band including Daevid Allen, Steve Hillage, Didier Malherbe, Tim Blake, Pip Pyle, Pierre Moerlen, Theo Travis, Mike Howlett, Allan Holdsworth and Bill Bruford.

A renaissance of the band began in 2009, with Allen adding Ian East (woodwinds), Dave Sturt (bass), Fabio Golfetti (guitar) and Kavus Torabi (also on guitar) into Gong. Allen's life was brought to its earthly conclusion in 2015, but the band has continued with the addition of Cheb Nebbles on drums.

This is GONG today. Still exploring musical innovations, while still being pioneers of psychedelic space Prog rock.

Join us for a multi-media experience, in a rare USA appearance, with a band who defies description in a concert you'll never forget.
