Emporium Presents: A Tribute to Johnny Cash-Cashd Out (Late)

Emporium Presents: A Tribute to Johnny Cash-Cash'd Out (Late)

Tractor Tavern
5213 Ballard Ave NW
Seattle, WA  98107 Map

$ 18.00 - $21.50 / Age 21 And UpAdditional Info:Over the past couple of decades, tribute bands have become big business in the world of concert promotion. And, not surprisingly, the more popular ones are the acts that are most authentic. Such is the case with Cashd Out, a San Diego based band, that channels Johnny Cash in about as close a manner to the real thing as it gets.How can you tell?Well, beyond critics having anointed Cashd Out (Douglas Benson on vocals, Kevin Manuel on guitar, Ryan Thomas on bass and George Bernardo on drums) the next best thing to Johnny Cash, and the group having won four San Diego Music Awards for Best Tribute Band, the real proof lies in what members of Cashs inner circle have said.Cindy Cash came to a show, we made her cry and she gave me a necklace with Johnny's hair in a glass locket, explains front man and Cash impersonator Douglas Benson. Benson added that Cash producer Lou Robin has also been to several Cashd Out shows, and claimed that if he closed it eyes it was like going back in time.Once the only tribute band endorsed by the official Johnny Cash web page, JohnnyCash.com, Cashd Out has played to over 1.2 million fans since forming in 2005. And those fans continually tell the group how grateful they are that Cashd Out continues to bring back memories of loved ones who once raised them on the music of Johnny Cash.W.S. Holland, Cashs longtime drummer, even sat in with Cashd Out at a birthday celebration for Johnny Cash hosted by Bill and Shannon Miller of JohnnyCash.com at the Fender Museum in Corona, California. And (noted Cash historian) Bill Miller let me play Johnnys cherry sunburst Guild guitar, added Benson.Cash'd Out has over 150 of JC's songs in their repertoire, and can deliver up to four hours of non-stop entertainment, including the June Carter Cash duets brought back to fame in the Oscar winning film, Walk the Line. Cash'd Out also tailors performances to suit any venue or function -- from clubs, theaters, fairs and casinos to museums and corporate events.The bands live shows respectfully reference the late, great Man in Black's Sun Records and early Columbia era sound, combined with the energy of the classic multi-platinum live recordings from Folsom Prison and San Quentin. The group's genuine love (and authentic recreation) of Johnny Cashs music and its universal appeal fans of all ages and of virtually all musical genres makes each Cashd Out show a must-see event.Cashd Out is also planning to release a CD in 2013, and will be unveiling a new online store as well.

3rd Annual Blake Island Snooze & Cruise

Jan 27, 4:00pm - Jan 28, 12:00pm

3rd Annual Blake Island Snooze & Cruise

Blake Island Marine State Park
Port Orchard, WA   Map

**Note that there is a neg 0.5' tide Saturday night around 7:30p. The pilings you can tie to in the marina are about 6' at zero tide. If you are a smaller boat docking on the inside near the shore, please check your depth sounder. **Another YC is also in the marina this weekend - The Trawler Crawlers. They are arriving Friday and on board with rafting. They will be 8-10 larger trawlers (40-50'). Consider bringing splitters if you need electricity and for boats not requiring electric - please let someone else have it if they need it. This has been our most popular cruise the last two years and is not to be missed! January 27-28 THIRD Annual Blake Island Cruise and Snooze with Moscow Mules!!Join us for a fun, festive pot-luck in the shelter beside the Blake Island Marina. Last year we had over 25 boats and 40+ people, an amazing bonfire and creative fire pit culinary concoctions. Please bring a bundle of wood or firestarters, a dish to share, a bag to take away your leftovers and trash, and don’t forget the smores!The pot luck will start at 4pm and the shelter closes at 9:30p MANDATORY and everything must be packed out so help with that is much appreciated. STYC will provide Moscow Mules until they run out so bring your copper mug! Please feel free to bring your own special cold weather cocktails to share as well. There are plenty of picnic tables and room for games. Camping lanterns are needed and appreciated. There are many raccoons in the park so it's a good idea to take all your trash below deck and keep the companion way doors closed. The marina does not take reservations so it is first come, first served and you will need to pay at the station at the head of the ramp. If you haven’t checked out the annual moorage passes, this is a great time to do that - the 2018 stickers go on sale in December which is good for moorage in state park marinas and mooring balls. There is a $3 charge for electricity (you may want to bring a splitter). The marina does allow rafting which is highly encouraged as are Tetris skills. There are mooring balls to the north and east of the island for those that want to dinghy in. This cruise is open to everyone! Questions? danastyc@gmail.com--... See MoreSee Less

Sometimes, a little distance is all you need to see things in a brand new way. For astronaut Terry Virts, his newfound perspective was from the International Space Station (ISS), where he installed the Cupola module, granting an unprecedented 360-degree view from the station. When he later became the commander of the ISS, he made good use of the Cupola, taking more photographs than any astronaut who came before him. Many of those images were later used in the National Geographic book View From Above and IMAX film A Beautiful Planet, but to hear Virts tell it, no photo can capture the perfect shade of blue from a sunrise viewed from outer space.Single tickets available now! → bit.ly/2v8fOoX...

The Rise and Fall of Marijuana in America - Emily Dufton

The Rise and Fall of Marijuana in America - Emily Dufton

University Lutheran Church - Seattle
1604 NE 50th St
Seattle, WA  98105-4223 Map

In the last five years, eight states have legalized recreational marijuana. To many, continued progress seems certain. But pot was on a similar trajectory forty years ago, only to encounter a fierce backlash. Historian Emily Dufton takes our stage to share a comprehensive history of marijuana—from its decriminalization in a dozen states during the 1970s to its transformation into a national scourge by concerned parents, a movement paving the way for an aggressive war on drugs. Chastened marijuana advocates retooled their message, promoting pot as a medical necessity and eventually declaring legalization a matter of racial justice. In her book Grass Roots, Dufton tells the remarkable story of marijuana’s crooked path from acceptance to demonization and back again, and of the thousands of grassroots activists who made changing marijuana laws their life’s work. She shows us how, for the moment, these activists are succeeding—but how marijuana’s history suggests that another counter-revolution could soon unfold.Emily Dufton is a writer based near Washington D.C. She holds a PhD in American Studies from George Washington University, and has served as a commentator on the History Channel as well as NPR’s Back Story with the American History Guys. Her work has been featured in the Washington Post, Atlantic, History News Network, and Run Washington. Presented by Town Hall Seattle as part of the Civics Series.Community Partner: ACLU-WA...
