Johnette Napolitano (of Concrete Blonde) w/ Laurie Sargent

Genre: Alternative Rock , Bassist , Singer-songwriter

  1. Saturday, November 07 8:00 PM (All ages)

Best known for her work as lead singer and bassist in the '80s and early-'90s alternative rock trio Concrete Blonde, Johnette Napolitano is also a poet, social activist, soundtrack composer, and sculptor. Born in Hollywood on September 22, 1957, Napolitano lurked on the fringes of the Los Angeles punk and new wave scene, working at the legendary Gold Star Studios until she formed the duo Dream 6 with guitarist Jim Mankey. The pair recorded a self-titled 1982 EP produced by Jim's brother Earle Mankey (like Jim, a former member of the first lineup of Sparks, and at the time one of the hottest producers on the L.A. new wave scene), which attracted the attention of IRS Records boss Miles Copeland. With a new drummer in Chicago transplant Harry Rushakoff and a new name supposedly bestowed by R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe that was supposed to connote the band's mix of hard and soft elements, Concrete Blonde released their self-titled debut in 1987. This was quickly followed by Free, Bloodletting (featuring the group's biggest hit, "Joey"), Walking in London, and Mexican Moon, before Concrete Blonde split in 1995.

Napolitano then moved on to two short-lived projects, Vowel Movement (a collaboration with Holly Beth Vincent of Holly & the Italians) and Pretty & Twisted (with the late Marc Moreland, formerly of Wall of Voodoo), as well as occasional Concrete Blonde reunion albums. Following this, Napolitano began a second career as soundtrack composer for small and medium-budget indie films such as Wicker Park and Underworld. She also released a pair of largely improvised and mostly electronic albums, Sketchbook and Sketchbook 2, in 2002 and 2006. Johnette Napolitano's first proper solo album, Scarred, followed in the spring of 2007. ~ Stewart Mason, Rovi

Karla Bonoff

Genre: Singer-songwriter

  1. Sunday, September 20 7:30 PM (All ages)

Karla Bonoff has been described as one of the finest singer/songwriters of her generation. And in her case, that description is not hyperbole.

With a career spanning four decades, Bonoff has enjoyed critical acclaim, commercial success, enduring popularity and the unwavering respect of her peers. In addition to achieving chart success with her own recordings, Karla has seen her songs become hits for such stellar artists as Bonnie Raitt, Wynonna Judd and Linda Ronstadt. Many of Bonoff’s ballads are now pop classics. All the while, she has continued to tour extensively, playing sold-out shows around the world. Karla’s moving vocals on her rich, expressive songs is like standing beneath a sparkling waterfall — refreshing, exhilarating, restorative. And hearing them live can be transformative.

In 2007, nearly 40 years into her writing, recording and performing, the singu- larly gifted singer/songwriter had at last produced a live album. Karla Bonoff Live is a superb two-CD set containing 21 songs, including some of Bonoff’s most popular material (“All My Life,” “Someone to Lay Down Beside Me,” “Tell Me Why,” and “Lose Again”) plus two new compositions. Many fans and critics prefer Bonoff’s own renditions of her songs, and they won’t be disappointed here. Like her performances, the instrumentation is clean and spare, giv-

ing Bonoff’s voice room to work its emotional magic on the listener. Live is Bonoff’s first solo album since 1999, when she released a 16-song greatest hits collection, All My Life: The Best of Karla Bonoff (Columbia/Legacy).

Keola Beamer & Henry Kapono

Genre: Folk , Guitarist , Hawaiian , Pop , Rock

  1. Thursday, January 21 7:30 PM (All ages)

Keola Beamer & Henry Kapono are two legends of Hawaiian music. Each became an icon in the 1970s, both at the creative forefront as Hawaiian music reinvented itself. They have continued to lead the way for over 4 decades.

Keola Beamer: "The Quintessential Hawaiian Slack-Key Guitar Master" --The New York Times

Keola Beamer’s contributions to slack key guitar during the 1970s began to spark public interest in kī-hō‘alu, launching a statewide revival of the tradition, and his 1978 release, Honolulu City Lights, is the largest selling recording in the history of Hawaiian music. Today he is one of Hawai'i's premier singer-songwriters, arrangers, composers and masters of the Hawaiian slack key guitar.

Henry Kapono:  "Kapono is one of the great island songwriters of his generation.” --Honolulu Star-Advertiser

Henry Kapono became the wildly popular phenomenon Cecilio & Kapono (aka C&K), with Cecilio Rodriguez,. They helped forge the sound of 70s Hawaiian music, with laid-back contemporary rock that voiced the feelings of an entire generation in Hawai‘i. Today as a solo artist, Henry is a Grammy-nominated and award-winning singer and songwriter.

Despite their common history, Keola & Henry just performed together for the first time in 2014, when Henry invited Keola & Moana Beamer to take part in Back in the Day. This wildly successful show featured Hawai‘i’s musical greats who shaped Hawaiian music starting in the 1970s during the “Hawaiian Renaissance” -- the seminal movement in Hawai‘i’s cultural history that brought back language, music, hula, art, and all aspects of Hawaiian culture to their central place in the life of the Islands.

Keola & Henry will each perform a set, and then come together onstage to celebrate their original songs that have become beloved classics of contemporary Hawaiian music.

Lady Grace Band w/ Velasco

Genre: Singer-songwriter

  1. Tuesday, September 15 8:00 PM (21+)

Lady Grace, a.k.a. Emily Grace, began writing songs when she was 23, she first found her lyrical home in Spoken Word circles in Seattle. Admiring and coveting the skills of some of the cities best Spoken Word artists, and inspired by Piece she sought to create her own spoken word album.

She now plays with Evan Flory-Barnes (bass), and occasionally with Andre Ferriante (guitar), as well as Milo Walker-Hayden on violin. Her music combines the influences of classical, hip hop, and the blues folk tradition, as well as incorporating elements of Brazilian, and Latin music. “Songs are given,” she says, “so they come through the funnel you create.” She listens to everything from Tupac to Shakira, Sera Cahoone to Schostakovich, and does not find this to be in conflict. She listens to artists that inspire her, and hopes that her work inspires too. It is about being yourself, and seeing yourself in others too. It is about the unique and the interconnected. The balance.
