House of Thee UnHoly, the epic, 90-minute, non-stop, explosion of ‘70s mythology and sexually-charged psychedelia, returns to Seattle’s Triple Door stage for five nights and ten shows March 12 through 16.

Featuring Druids, Vikings, Hindu goddesses, sex, drugs, rock ’n’ roll — and a little bumble bee with a big problem – thirteen dancers, three singers and four musicians will rock audiences in a radical rocklesque celebration of the 21st Century’s most excessive decade.
The Triple Door joins creative director paulanow (formerly known as The Swedish Housewife), along with a kaleidoscope of Seattle’s most outré and imaginative choreographers, dancers, burlesque performers, musicians, costumers, stage designers and theatrical performers in the show’s first staging since 2011.

Music is your master as “Sarah Rudinoff and Jen Ayers deliver powerful, mind-blowing vocals. The band alone is worth the price of admission,” reported The Examiner during the show’s last run. “The show delivers on its promise to leave you dazed, confused, and ecstatic.”

“House of Thee UnHoly, clearly has a rabid following, if the whoops and hollers and cheers are any indicator,” said The Seattle Times. “The costumes, extravagantly fanciful.” “House of Thee UnHoly’s sheer visual and auditory spectacle cannot be overemphasized,” wrote Culture Mob, and The Seattle Weekly called it, “Broadway level Burlesque.”

The 2014 production includes; Dancers, Lily Verlaine, Waxie Moon, Indigo Blue, Inga Ingenue, Douglass Ridings, Red Delicious, Paris Original, Polly Wood, Gerard D, Heidi Von Haught, Tory Tiara, Jody Kuehner and Mimi Me.  Singers, Sarah Rudinoff, Jen Ayers and Zack Davidson. Musicians, Andy Stoller, Ryan Burns, Darren Loucas and Mike Stone.  Set design by Jim Guerci and Chris Ford. Contributing costumers include, It’s Mark Mitchell and Lisa Marie.
House of Thee UnHoly  March 12-15, 7 and 10p.m.  Sunday, March 16, 5 and 8 p.m.

The Triple Door, 216 Union St., downtown Seattle.

Tickets range from $20 to $45. Must be 17 or older to attend. Call 206.838.4333 or see www.tripledoor.com for tickets and more information.

This 21st anniversary of the birth of the Fremont Troll, you’ll be learning about MacBeth: a wronged man, back to set things straight. Many seasoned artists and performers will present their twisted and whacky version of Shakesspeares famous tales.

Bumbershoot turns 41!

The Labor Day weekend, harbenger of the end of summer, brings North America’s largest urban arts festival, Bumbershoot to Seattle.

Now in the 41st year,  Bumbershoot is world renowned for showcasing musical talent.  And while there are a myriad of music choices, Bumbershoot by it’s very name is an umbrella of the arts (from the slang: bum•ber•shoot —n. informal An umbrella.)

So be sure not to miss:

The Magic Show at the Center Pavilion everyday from 11am-8pm, a multimedia exhibit that explores illusion, conjuring, levitation, and transformation.

Get your guns up with 2010 Stranger Genius Award winner Marya Sea Kaminski’s Bonnie and the Robberi, a collection of rock covers, original songs, and monologues that explore societal themes of women with firearms, love, and violence and is backed by the musical talents of Landlords Daughter.

Bumber by Number a fully interactive color by number show featuring some of Seattle’s favorite visual art talents and is curated by the beloved Marlow Harris & Jo David.  Pick up a veggie and join in the communal art creation.

Movies at SIFF Cinema and McCaw Hall feature projects: Films4Families, 48 Hour Film Project, Nerds Unite, and Animation for Adults, just to name a few.

Just in case you spend all your Bumbershoot days watching movies, seeing visual art shows, eating and shopping the vendor booths.  You can still catch a fabulous line up of musicians at Bumbershoot After Dark, a collaboration with Decibel, One Reel,  Seattle Center, & Kaos Theory.  This late night (10pm-4am) celebration at Exhibition Hall, features some of the most acclaimed electronic music performers and deejays.  Saturday brings the musical stylings of Craze, Claude Van Stroke, Jokers of the Scene, and The Dowlz. Sunday’s line-up is Z-Trip, Four Tet, and Dam Funk. Bumbershoot After Dark is boasting this collaboration “to be the most adventurous stage configuration that any of the organizations have ever produced throughout their 100+ years of collective experience.”

Be warned if you go to Bumbershoot expecting to get a glimpse of John Oates fabulous mustache, you will be disappointed.  It has only been seen once in the last 25 years: last year’s National Moustache Convention where he was a special guest.  

For a breakdown of all the Bumbershoot events & happenings check the official SCHEDULE. Hall & Oates take the Bumbershoot main stage on Monday.

Joey Arias sings Billie Holiday this Tuesday at The Triple Door and a flim screening!

October 12th – Joey Arias and Eliot Douglass in “Strange Fruit”

Tuesday October 12, 7:30 PM The Triple Door

For those of you who are uninitiated to the magic that Joey Arias conjures up when he takes to the stage to sing the songs of Billie Holiday you are in for a treat and will be delighted by this sublime 90 minute sojourn of song and banter.  A dear friends mother (now in her 80’s) came to see the show last year sums it up best “ I never thought I would live to see Billie Holiday perform live!” or Christopher Frizelle of The Stranger “It will blow your fucking head open! ”, mind bending indeed.

For one night only, the legendary New York performance artist  Joey Arias and Eliot Douglass will appear at the Triple Door, performing original works alongside the material of Ms. Holiday–as only Joey Arias can conjure her. A two-time “Critic’s Choice” and “Pick of the Week” (Los Angeles Times), Seattle Gay News writer Sara Michelle Fetters said this of his last Triple Door performance:  “To say he left victorious would be something of an understatement… the only thing strange about this particular fruit is just how darn brilliant he really is.” -SGN, April 9 ’08

Seattle musicians Craig Flory – Saxophone, Geoff Harper -Bass and Denali Williams – Drums will be joining Joey and Eliot on stage Tuesday night.
