This event is all ages

Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn has been creating incorruptible independent pop music since the late 1990’s. She has released over a dozen solo and collaborative recordings on K Records, Kill Rock Stars and various domestic and foreign independent labels.

Defined by her graceful songwriting and adventuresome recordings, Pitchfork has praised her “incredible voice—a versatile coo that can flit from low, sultry tones to high, airy falsetto in one breath.”

Mirah has always sought the creative company of unique collaborators, from multi-media artists and orchestral composers to dj’s, Baltic music enthusiasts, and entomologists. A partial list of some of her collaborators includes Phil Elverum (The Microphones/Mount Eerie), Merrill Garbus (tUnE-yArDs), Tara Jane O’Neil, Khaela Maricich (The Blow), Melanie Valera (Tender Forever), Jherek Bischoff, Lori Goldston, Britta Johnson and Ginger Brooks Takahashi.

Mirah lives in Brooklyn, New York.
Secret Drum Band
Secret Drum Band
SECRET DRUM BAND is a percussion ensemble based in Portland, Oregon. Lisa Schonberg started the band in 2006 as a experimental quartet for Ladyfest Olympia. It's current incarnation features five percussionists and two ambient musicians. Many of SDB's works were composed in response to soundscape and form in locations chosen to draw attention to issues concerning endangered species, ecosystem function, and habitat loss.
Anna Oxygen
Anna Oxygen
Anna Oxygen is the stage name of an American musician and actress from in and around Olympia, Washington, Anna Jordan Huff.

After graduating from Evergreen State College with a music degree, Huff began her musical career in the late 1990s with the novelty synth-pop group the Space Ballerinas. The group released two EPs on Yoyo Records entitled "Diamonds" and "If Goth Was Pink" and opened a show for Peaches before disbanding in 2001.

Huff's solo career started in 2002 after she moved from Olympia to Seattle. She recorded All Your Faded Things with producer Justin Trosper, which was released on Cold Crush Records in 2003. Huff then went on tour before releasing her second album This Is an Exercise on the Kill Rock Stars label in 2006.

She has also appeared on recordings by The Microphones.

Her albums have featured guest vocalists Beth Ditto, Mirah, and Kitty Jenson.

Her feature film debut was the 2005 film Police Beat directed by Robinson Devor.

Huff is also a member of Cloud-Eye Control, a performance art group which also consists of Miwa Matreyek, and Chi-wang Yang. The group has recently completed and performed a piece entitled "Under Polaris," performed in Portland, OR and hosted by the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art (PICA).
