The Return (of the Return) of #TBLFAS, #66: Patrick Galactic, Champagne Sunday, Hell Mary, Abi Grace & TBASA
In January we told you how our buddy TBASA was doing acoustic nights every Wednesday under the moniker “TBASA’s LoFi All-Stars.” In March the club that hosted it intermittently over several years, the Benbow Room in West Seattle, announced they were closing.
Tim’s back and booking all the entertainment at Subsation and will do #TBLBAS number 66 at the Ballard venue on Wednesday, June 3 beginning at 8:30 p.m. with a bunch of alumni, who you can get to know with the links and Tim’s write ups below.
Patrick embodies the hopelessness of life through aural beauty. Challenging at times for the audience but rewarding none the less. Here is a video of surprisingly new upbeat song from a recent performance at Bob’s Java Jive in Tacoma:
The Fredeen’s, a husband and wife duo who perform as Champagne Sunday, have been known to make even the most jaded of Seattle hipster smile at their on stage antics. Their sound is polished and the occasional use of a trombone is a real treat. Here is the couple playing the Gigs 4 U launch party at the Georgetown Stables back in March:
Hell Mary is the stage name for Rachel Angerman. She is new to the Solo artist game and is already dominating it. Her songs will make you think but not too much because you will be to distracted by her hauntingly beautiful voice. Here is a video of her performing at Bob’s Java Jive in Tacoma:
Abi Grace has the personality to take over the world and not in a totalitarian way more of a “charismatic icon” kind of way. Her voice is equally iconic and her song structures are heady yet accessible. Here is a video of Abi performing at “the Lady Bunch” an all female showcase in 2014:
TBASA closes out each Lo-Fi with hacky covers and uninspired originals:
