April Fools with Strangely & Shay and Friends!

Welcome in springtime in Beautiful Bellingham, Washington with a selection of the finest singer-songwriters from around the Pacifac Northwest!

All ages, Cover $3. [Honey Moon has recently updated their door charge policies for shows. The money is split %50/%50 between the musicians and Honey Moon, with %100 of the collected tips to the musicians.]

Oddball folk singers Strangely T. Doesburg and Aaron J. Shay are back in Bellingham, both with new albums in tow! These two folk singers, full of spit and vinegar, always put on an energetic show full of sing-alongs and laughter! With Strangely's bombastic charisma and Shay's earnest charm, they leave an audience smiling and humming a tune, no matter where they go.

Strangely & Shay will be joined by Bellingham's own Sarah Goodin with her magical electric guitar and wonderful piano stylings! Also on hand will be Seattle's Pepper Proud and her wondrous carpet-bag full of stories and magic.

Strangely's new full-length album, "ROARING ACCORDION," saw its digital release in December, and now the physical copies are in hand and for sale! (strangely.bandcamp.com)

Aaron J. Shay's new compilation, "DISCRETE PACKETS OF SONG," is also going to be released at this show, a CD featuring five years worth of recorded material and one previously unreleased song! (aaronjshay.bandcamp.com)

Gather Round: Honey Moon Story Hour

Come join us at Gather Round, a new monthly forum for people who love a good story. We had such a great time last month and we're excited to see you all again! The theme for this edition is "Felix Culpa, or Blessings In Disguise."

If you weren't with us last time, here's the scoop: Gather Round is inspired by The Moth, the New York based non-profit dedicated to "true stories told live." We believe that nothing binds a community together like shared stories. Our format is open mic: prospective tellers prepare a story based on the evening’s theme and submit their names before the show starts. Our rules are simple: 

1. Stories must be true and personal, that is, they must relate something that actually happened to the teller. 
2. Stories must be told, not read -- they must be performed without notes.
3. Stories last approximately 5-8 minutes. 

We're committed to creating a safe and supportive environment for all sorts of stories to be shared. Funny stories, sad stories, stories about small triumphs or epic defeats; stories about friends, about families, about the search for love or justice; stories about the human condition and how we cope with it on any given day. 

This month we're thinking especially about those moments when all seems lost -- but sometimes that very lostness reveals a beauty or benefit beyond our wildest imagining. Have you ever experienced a Felix Culpa? We'd love to hear about it!

See you on March 28th--

Gather Round: True Stories Told Live

Honey Moon is pleased to introduce Gather Round, a monthly forum for people who love a good story. Inspired by The Moth, the New York-based non-profit that promotes storytelling through live events and weekly radio broadcasts, Gather Round will showcase “true stories, told live.” We believe that nothing binds a community together like shared stories, and we hope this project will prove to be as much about building connections as about the stories themselves. 


Storytellers and listeners are invited to Gather Round at the Honey Moon on the last Tuesday of every month. Gather Round is an open mic event: prospective tellers will prepare a story based on that evening’s theme and submit their names before the show starts. The theme for February’s gathering is “Beginnings”; future themes TBA. The rules are simple: 


1. Stories must be true and personal, that is, they must be about something that actually happened to the teller. 
2. Stories must be performed without notes — no reading!
3. Stories last approximately 5-8 minutes. 


We’re committed to creating a safe and supportive environment for all sorts of stories to be shared. Funny stories, sad stories, stories about small triumphs or epic defeats; stories about friends, about families, about the search for love or justice; stories about the human condition and how we cope with it on any given day — we all have a story. We’d love to have you Gather Round and share yours!
