‘A Year Afar’ at CEBU July 25
This week at CEBU Lounge:
Friday, July 25: A Year Afar, 9:30 p.m. – Indie Folk Pop
“Suzanne Tufan had never been in a band before, but she’s been singing and performing all of her life. Acapella with her sisters, on stage in musicals, acting in television shows (Grimm and Leverage), or just quietly singing and strumming her guitar. Suzanne’s melodies, lyrics, and broadly unique musical sensibilities just begged to be fleshed out in a lush, carefully arranged pop format.”
Saturday, July 26: Brothers & Sister, 9:30pm – Allman Bros Tribute Band, Circa 1971
“Brothers and Sister is an Allman Brothers tribute band. Performances are centered around recreating the seminal 1970s album "Live at Fillmore East," with an assortment of other (predominantly Duane-era) Allman Brothers favorites mixed in as well.”
Best Western Hood River Inn, 1108 E. Marina Way; 541-386-2200.
