Gather Round: True Stories Told Live

Join Bellingham's monthly forum for people who love a good story. If you haven't been with us before, 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, and that directly affected 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. Come tell us a story, or just sit back and listen as others share theirs.

One more thing: our space is small and seating is limited -- come early to get a good spot!

Hot House Jazz Band and Bonnie Northgraves

Please save the date and spread the word for this special vintage summit at Bellingham's acoustic living room: the Honey Moon. Local trad jazz gems Hot House Jazz Band will share the night with Vancouver B.C.'s trumpeter/vocalist/pianist Bonnie Northgraves! 

Drawn to vintage jazz at an early age, Bonnie performs music of the 1920s to 40s well as her own original compositions inspired by the era. Her singing is smoky and rich, her piano playing fun and eclectic, and her trumpeting a call to early New Orleans. 

Northgraves covers a range of emotions: from the realization of heartbreak, to the joy and quirkiness of just being silly with your friends. Displayed through romantic melodies, creative harmonies, and a variety of grooves that will get toes tapping. 2018 has Bonnie traveling across North America, Europe, and Asia to perform with some of the many groups she works with in support of her first solo album: “Between Then and Now”

Free and all ages welcome as always! Please tip your band and bartender.
