The Bushwick Book Club Seattle, Town Hall Seattle, and Seattle Arts And Lectures present: original music inspired by Cheryl Strayed’s Wild. Portland native Cheryl Strayed’s epic hike on the Pacific Crest Trail — 1,100 miles, three states, and a healthy dose of self-discovery — is chronicled in her New York Times bestselling memoir Wild. Ben Mish, along with other Bushwick artists, will perform a set of songs inspired by Strayed’s narrative at Town Hall on March 4th, 2015. See the links below.

Left Hand Smoke performed a marathon set on Friday, 10/17/14 at the Highway 99. Playing nearly 45 songs of original material with no covers, the show was quite a bit more comprehensive than the typical LHS performance. Thanks to all who came out (with a special shout out to Chris Robl on his birthday) and thanks to Highway 99 for treating LHS so well. Below is the set list from the night. It was a sweaty and soulful night.
