Whether it's: head down bobbing to the beat, jumping hands raised to the ceiling, or just that subtle groove that tickles your soul, Electronic Dance Music is a universal language that speaks to all of us. In a city that has a very niche EDM community and few nights dedicated to electronic music we wanted to create something different. DEEP Tuesdays explore the sounds of EDM creating an opportunity for people to hear a new side of the music they love or to experience it for the very first time.

Pulitzer Prize nominee Warning:  Language "...Herzog's beautifully rendered portrait of the relationship between an old-style lefty grandmother and her new-style lefty grandson".  (NY Times).  Leo, searching for change and meaning somewhat impulsively leaves his Seattle home on a cross-country bike trip, and winds up arriving, without warning, in a state of shock on the New York doorstep of his unshockable 91-year-old grandmother.  What sounds like a sitcom never goes there but, stays real, human and unexpected.  A touching story about growing up, growing old, and discovering the moments in between.

DEEP Tuesdays explore the sounds of EDM creating an opportunity for people to hear a new side of the music they love or to experience it for the very first time.

Pulitzer Prize nominee Warning:  Language "...Herzog's beautifully rendered portrait of the relationship between an old-style lefty grandmother and her new-style lefty grandson".  (NY Times).  Leo, searching for change and meaning somewhat impulsively leaves his Seattle home on a cross-country bike trip, and winds up arriving, without warning, in a state of shock on the New York doorstep of his unshockable 91-year-old grandmother.  What sounds like a sitcom never goes there but, stays real, human and unexpected.  A touching story about growing up, growing old, and discovering the moments in between.

Whether it's: head down bobbing to the beat, jumping hands raised to the ceiling, or just that subtle groove that tickles your soul, Electronic Dance Music is a universal language that speaks to all of us. In a city that has a very niche EDM community and few nights dedicated to electronic music we wanted to create something different. DEEP Tuesdays explore the sounds of EDM creating an opportunity for people to hear a new side of the music they love or to experience it for the very first time.

Pulitzer Prize nominee Warning:  Language "...Herzog's beautifully rendered portrait of the relationship between an old-style lefty grandmother and her new-style lefty grandson".  (NY Times).  Leo, searching for change and meaning somewhat impulsively leaves his Seattle home on a cross-country bike trip, and winds up arriving, without warning, in a state of shock on the New York doorstep of his unshockable 91-year-old grandmother.  What sounds like a sitcom never goes there but, stays real, human and unexpected.  A touching story about growing up, growing old, and discovering the moments in between.

This is gonna be a great week so come join us as we get down to some dirty beats!

Whether it's: head down bobbing to the beat, jumping hands raised to the ceiling, or just that subtle groove that tickles your soul, Electronic Dance Music is a universal language that speaks to all of us. In a city that has a very niche EDM community and few nights dedicated to electronic music we wanted to create something different. DEEP Tuesdays explore the sounds of EDM creating an opportunity for people to hear a new side of the music they love or to experience it for the very first time.

This is gonna be a great week so come join us as we get down to some dirty beats!

Whether it's: head down bobbing to the beat, jumping hands raised to the ceiling, or just that subtle groove that tickles your soul, Electronic Dance Music is a universal language that speaks to all of us. In a city that has a very niche EDM community and few nights dedicated to electronic music we wanted to create something different. DEEP Tuesdays explore the sounds of EDM creating an opportunity for people to hear a new side of the music they love or to experience it for the very first time.

Pulitzer Prize nominee Warning:  Language "...Herzog's beautifully rendered portrait of the relationship between an old-style lefty grandmother and her new-style lefty grandson".  (NY Times).  Leo, searching for change and meaning somewhat impulsively leaves his Seattle home on a cross-country bike trip, and winds up arriving, without warning, in a state of shock on the New York doorstep of his unshockable 91-year-old grandmother.  What sounds like a sitcom never goes there but, stays real, human and unexpected.  A touching story about growing up, growing old, and discovering the moments in between.

https://www.facebook.com/ChristianMistress

In a cellar where anxiety and blind confidence collide, desperate sounds are set to flame. Marshall law screams out shallow skulls propulsed by human error. Walls of white wash marbled black. This is the freedom as a captive of sin. There's no future here so let it burn us clean.

This is gonna be a great week so come join us as we get down to some dirty beats!

Whether it's: head down bobbing to the beat, jumping hands raised to the ceiling, or just that subtle groove that tickles your soul, Electronic Dance Music is a universal language that speaks to all of us. In a city that has a very niche EDM community and few nights dedicated to electronic music we wanted to create something different. DEEP Tuesdays explore the sounds of EDM creating an opportunity for people to hear a new side of the music they love or to experience it for the very first time.

Pulitzer Prize nominee Warning:  Language "...Herzog's beautifully rendered portrait of the relationship between an old-style lefty grandmother and her new-style lefty grandson".  (NY Times).  Leo, searching for change and meaning somewhat impulsively leaves his Seattle home on a cross-country bike trip, and winds up arriving, without warning, in a state of shock on the New York doorstep of his unshockable 91-year-old grandmother.  What sounds like a sitcom never goes there but, stays real, human and unexpected.  A touching story about growing up, growing old, and discovering the moments in between.

Whether it's: head down bobbing to the beat, jumping hands raised to the ceiling, or just that subtle groove that tickles your soul, Electronic Dance Music is a universal language that speaks to all of us. In a city that has a very niche EDM community and few nights dedicated to electronic music we wanted to create something different. DEEP Tuesdays explore the sounds of EDM creating an opportunity for people to hear a new side of the music they love or to experience it for the very first time.

Pulitzer Prize nominee Warning:  Language "...Herzog's beautifully rendered portrait of the relationship between an old-style lefty grandmother and her new-style lefty grandson".  (NY Times).  Leo, searching for change and meaning somewhat impulsively leaves his Seattle home on a cross-country bike trip, and winds up arriving, without warning, in a state of shock on the New York doorstep of his unshockable 91-year-old grandmother.  What sounds like a sitcom never goes there but, stays real, human and unexpected.  A touching story about growing up, growing old, and discovering the moments in between.

This is gonna be a great week so come join us as we get down to some dirty beats!

Whether it's: head down bobbing to the beat, jumping hands raised to the ceiling, or just that subtle groove that tickles your soul, Electronic Dance Music is a universal language that speaks to all of us. In a city that has a very niche EDM community and few nights dedicated to electronic music we wanted to create something different. DEEP Tuesdays explore the sounds of EDM creating an opportunity for people to hear a new side of the music they love or to experience it for the very first time.

It was not called a fair, but instead a Mutual Aid Fair, aimed to aid farmers and agriculture, and to aid the development of our area by encouraging immigration. The superintendent of the Fair was R. G. Stuart, and the Fair was a huge success, covering both floors of the building. A lot has changed in 130 years, but the Fair remains a key event in Thurston County every year.

TIMESLOTS WILL BE RELEASED SOON

This is gonna be a great week so come join us as we get down to some dirty beats!

Whether it's: head down bobbing to the beat, jumping hands raised to the ceiling, or just that subtle groove that tickles your soul, Electronic Dance Music is a universal language that speaks to all of us. In a city that has a very niche EDM community and few nights dedicated to electronic music we wanted to create something different. DEEP Tuesdays explore the sounds of EDM creating an opportunity for people to hear a new side of the music they love or to experience it for the very first time.

History of the Fair - Over 130 Years of Thurston County Fairs The first Thurston County Fair was held in 1871 at the Columbia Hall (the present-day 4th Avenue Tavern). It was not called a fair, but instead a Mutual Aid Fair, aimed to aid farmers and agriculture, and to aid the development of our area by encouraging immigration. The superintendent of the Fair was R. G. Stuart, and the Fair was a huge success, covering both floors of the building. A lot has changed in 130 years, but the Fair remains a key event in Thurston County every year.
