     12 - 3pm: Really Really Free Market

Really Really Free Market! No money. No trades. Everything is free. This market is based on a gift-economy... capitalism NO! ... and the part of the intention of this happening is that we all have something to share with each other... that we can freely give, without monetizing our offerings to each other. That we can give and take and give and that this isn't about keeping score or an account of flows back and forth. We have so much to offer each other, and it can be a joy to see someone be excited about something we are giving away too.

So come to the Really Really Free Market to give away your old stuff and/or get new-to-you stuff. Bring food to share. Bring your special items that you don't use but can't throw away (ex. clothes, toys, art supplies, instruments, books and zines...your free box). Bring your special talents to offer people (ex. haircuts, message, reiki...). Come and take what you can use and say thanks! We will have folks to check in with as you arrive. First come first served, space may be limited. Don't be late and be sure to check in with the organizers when you get there. If you bring things, you are expected to take away whatever is left at the end of the market. https://www.facebook.com/events/325244684816265/

Fri: A Show // Sat: Really Really Free Market & Another Show // Sun: Yet Another Show


-Friday, May 10th, 7pm: Vouna//Gabriel Saloman//Melpomene
*VOUNA (Cascadian Funeral Doom from Olympia) https://vouna.bandcamp.com
**Melpomene (Shantel of Illudium & Medicine Moon) https://illudium.bandcamp.com/releases
***Gabriel Saloman (Dark Ambient Drone from Santa Cruz) https://gabrielsaloman.bandcamp.com

VOUNA conjures a singular Cascadian Funeral Doom atmosphere that is unlike anything that has existed before. Their self-titled LP will be released by Artemisia Records November 2018. https://vouna.bandcamp.com

All music was composed and all instruments performed by frontwoman Yianna Bekris (previously of Vradiazei, Eigenlicht, and Sadhaka). The music was inspired and influenced by Finnish funeral doom, English masters My Dying Bride, Eastern European black metal, and Greek folk music.

The album was recorded entirely at the Wolves in the Throne Room studio, Owl Lodge, which is located at the edge of an ancient forest in Olympia, WA. Razor sharp tremolo picked guitars cut through the heart like a knife. Mournfully sung vocals and cinematic melodies are combined with crushing doom drums, while layers of primitive 90s digital synths create a lush and rugged soundscape.

-Saturday May 11th, 2 happenings!!!
