Their vibrant sound crosses boundaries and borders, resulting in a blend of European, Middle Eastern, and South American music with Jazz, Rock, Surf, Folk, Gothic, and Steampunk influences.

Joining the band on stage is world-renown bellydance fusion artist Tempest, adding another incredible level to the band’s dynamic stage show. All together, they provide an incredible audio-visual experience that delivers solid, reliable music and high-quality entertainment – all while getting folks up and dancing!

Den of Iniquities Saloon

absinthe and a smoky haze of music. Set across the street from Brass Screw High Command at the Cotton Building (607 Water St) from 7-11pm Friday evening. 21+
and over. Featuring:

Hot Damn Scandal

Finds its songs under park benches and in forgotten alleyways. The resulting outlaw ballads, dirty jazz, circus freakouts, shanty-rags, string band funk, lonesome
heart-breakers, and whiskey bottle love songs blend together in a sweet song syrup somewhere between a ramble and a roar. Sometimes called
Tipsy American Gypsy Blues , Hot Damn Scandal pulls no punches and puts thunder in your molasses.

Crow Quill Night Owls

The Crow Quill Night Owls are a band that plays jug band, jazz, and string band music of the 1920’s and 1930’s. They were formed in 2007 by guitarist Kit “Stymee” Stovepipe and tenor banjoist Windy City Alex. they’ve since added Baylin Adahere on washtub bass. The group fluctuates from a duo to a six person band and often features members of other bands in similar genres.

In addition to the Friday and Saturday night shows, we’re dedicated to bringing you the Pacific Northwest’s finest steamy, whimsical entertainments with many additional bands featured on our stages at the Cotton Building’s Boat Bar and the Northwest Maritime Center’s Venue at the Bazaar.
