Our Only May Ameila

2015-03-20 to 2015-04-03

7:00 pm to 9:00 pm More Info

Location: Olympia Family Theater 612 4th Ave E

Runs March 20 – April 5 READ THE BOOK BEFORE OR AFTER THIS PLAY! (recommend for 8 & up) Runs March 20 – April 5 Our Only May Amelia is adapted from the Newberry Award winning novel by Jennifer L. Holm. It is the coming of age story of a 13 year old who is being raised on an isolated farm as the only girl in a family of boys. In 1899, life on the Naselle River in South West Washington was hard for anyone, but especially for 13 year-old May Amelia Jackson, the only girl in all of the Naselle settlement. May Amelia’s Pappa thinks that hunting, fishing, and working at the logging camp are all too rough for a little girl, but that doesn’t stop May. Once May’s mother gives birth to a baby girl, it seems as though all of May’s prayers have been answered. After tragedy strikes and Grandmother Patience blames her, May runs off to Astoria to stay with her aunt. But living in the big city, despite the new and exciting things it has to offer, means that May has to act like a “proper young lady.” Life on the Naselle might be hard for a girl, but at least it is full of adventure – and family, and it is her home- her place.

on the Backstage LA LUZ with Will Sprott and Morgan & the Organ Donors

7:30 pm to 11:30 pm More Info

Location: Capital Theater 206 5th Ave SE, Olympia, WA 98501

Cost: $10

Seattle quartet LA LUZ is driven by danceable surf beats, trembling organ, 60’s girl-group harmonies, reverb-soaked guitar and a wild love of rock n’ roll. Last fall, the band toured with garage rock champ Ty Segall, converting “Luzers” all over the country while promoting their excellent debut LP “It’s Alive” on the Hardly Art label. La Luz’s influences run cool and classic – Link Wray, Ventures, Shangri-Las, Francoise Hardy, Bo Diddley – while still maintaining a haunting, dreamlike quality that is uniquely their own. Onstage, these four talented women convey a gritty self-possession, and they engage their audience with the same kind of deft skills they employ in writing songs, playing their instruments and harmonizing effortlessly – in other words, there’s a good chance you and your pals will be doing a Soul Train-style dance line before the night is through. Opening the show is Will Sprott, formerly of the Mumlers. Sprott wears his influences on his sleeve, borrowing from heyday rock n’ roll just enough to leave room for his own embellishments, of which his soulful voice stands as a distinct highlight. Please show your support for touring bands and join us for this unforgettable night of music on the Backstage!

Koresh Dance Company

NEKO CASE with Rodrigo Amarante

7:00 pm to 11:30 pm More Info

Location: Capital Theater 206 5th Ave SE, Olympia, WA 98501

Cost: $30

Neko Case is a Grammy-nominated solo artist and one-eighth of the celebrated Canadian pop outfit the New Pornographers. The Washington-bred singer/songwriter has achieved worldwide critical acclaim and a loyal following for her smoky, sophisticated vocals and the downcast beauty of her music. With her latest release, The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You, the singer known as much for her restless musical curiosity as her clarion voice charts a powerfully personal course across the rocky landscape of childhood, love and loss. Case’s 2009 album, Middle Cyclone, was her most ambitious to date, vaulting her to new heights of critical and commercial success and netting two Grammy nominations. But if Middle Cyclone – laced with frogs, tornados and killer whales – was Case’s exploration of the potency of the natural world, the new album sees Case turning inward. The Worse Things Get…plunges into the wilderness of human experience, revealing Case at her most emotionally raw and yet, paradoxically, in steely control. It’s some of her most instantly gratifying work, perfectly encapsulating all of her personas, from the erudite, whiskey-shooting provocateur to the sweet and soulful, small town crooner who sounds like she was plucked from the pages of a novel set in the antebellum north. Case has proven time and again that she has the songwriting chops to match her earthy, superlative voice, but never with such authority. The Olympia Film Society is thrilled to present the one and only Neko Case. Rodrigo Amarante: One of the masterminds behind Brazilian band Los Hermanos and founding member of the samba supergroup Orquestra Imperial, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rodrigo Amarante is an inescapable musical figure in his native South American home. Breaking out of the Brazilian market in 2008, Amarante formed the group Little Joy and released their self-titled debut album which gained critical acclaim in the US and worldwide.

The Olympia Symphony Orchestra: Austrian Antithesis

7:00 pm to 10:30 pm More Info

Location: Washington Center 512 Washington St. SE

Mozart: Flute Concerto No. 1 in G major, K. 313 soloist: Marie Tachouet, flute Bruckner: Symphony No. 4 in E-flat major “Romantic” Our season ends in Austria—a country so pivotal in the development and growth of Western Music. Mozart loathed being in Salzburg and the suffocating clutches of his father and boss—the Archbishop. The light and refreshing Flute Concerto is one of the last works Mozart composed in his hometown before moving to Vienna to make his fame and (penniless) fortune. The unique late-Romantic composer, Anton Bruckner, possessed a limited enthusiasm to leave his beloved Upper Austria for the musical epicenter of Vienna. He was not understood there, and he was often homesick: his heaven-eclipsing Fourth Symphony was his big breakthrough piece with the Viennese cognoscenti, a fresh and flowing piece which harks back to nature, his childhood, and the innocence of country life. Bruckner is a huge personal favorite of mine, and I look forward to presenting a Symphony by this master-composer to the Olympia community. Tickets*: Adult $55 - $25 Military $49.50 - $22.50

The Blackberry Bushes on the Mounds

7:00 pm to 10:00 pm More Info

Location: Music on the Mounds, 118th Ave SW Littlerock, WA

Cost: $10 - $25

LIMITED SEATS AVAILABLE for an intimate show in the living room with one of the best string bands in the Pacific Northwest, The Blackberry Bushes! Bring your favorite appetizer and drinks and show your support for incredible independent music in small, not-for-profit venues like Music on the Mounds. HIGH LONESOME. HARD DRIVING. AMERICANA. The Appalachian Mountains are the meeting place of the fiddle and the banjo, and musical culture permeates the entire length of the Mississippi River. Jes Raymond and Jakob Breitbach may have started their musical journey in the rainy bottom of the Puget Sound, but their work is infused with the essence of the homes they wandered West from. Joined by Daniel Ullom on the mandolin and Forrest Marowitz on the upright bass, The Blackberry Bushes draw from the deep roots of American traditional music to create a playful and resonant sound with both twang and sophistication. They are emerging as a band of artists whose Americana is honest and generous with an obvious love of performing, spot on chemistry, and a live show that truly aims to stir the spirit. Jes's songs connect the day to day with the muses of wonder, folk wisdom, earthiness, and impermanence. Backed by two, three and four part harmonies, she sings with joy and a desire for every person in the house to feel that she is singing to them. Jakob's virtuosic fiddle improvisation and Daniel's longtime immersion in bluegrass and old-time create a thrillingly potent onstage correspondence. Together with Forrest's exceptionally sensitive and deeply grooving bass lines, they propel a song-focused band to expand outward in exploratory delight. Jes's skillful flatpicking interlocks these soundscapes while the band simultaneously honors the genius of tradition and innovation. It is a rare magic that allows a band to use voices from many genres in an acoustic instrumentation that retains distinct threads of sonic color. Elements of jazz, classical, pop and gospel saturate this modern string band sound that is buoyant, bold, and like their thorny namesake, rooted and growing, growing, growing. All contribution levels are suggested minimum amounts, so you're welcome to add extra funds for the band or to help with mandatory venue expenses. We appreciate all the help we can get in making this a fantastic private venue that we can all enjoy together. 100% of your contributions through ticket sales directly benefit the musicians who play here. Making a contribution is sometimes referred to as "admission or buying a ticket", but this is not accurate. We call it contributing or participating, because Music on the Mounds is not a business that you buy something from, but rather a music co-op where we all pool our money together to pay for the fantastic music. People under 25 are welcome with a responsible adult who has researched and approved the venue and the bands and musicians specific to this event. We can't wait to see you and your friends on the mounds! TICKETS WILL NOT BE SOLD AT THE DOOR! Advanced registration only!
