Elbo Finn a FolkCore Band, was officially formed in 1994 and brings its eight years of experience to the River City Saloon this Friday. After aquiring Maurice Hille on drums the band quickly went into the studio to record a five song CD. Thimble & the Wheel was released fall of 1995. Almost immediately the first single Freezer Hash began getting normal rotation spins on alternative station KXRK 96.3FM Salt Lake City, Utah. At this time the band focused their attention mainly on saturating the Salt Lake City club market. With the help of Freezer Hash Elbo Finn was playing packed venues week after week. A year after Thimble was released radio time and local performance helped lock down down a strong, loyal following for the Salt Lake favorite. After a year of hard studio work the Finn boys returned with 1997's Cryptogamy Kills Cowboy.
Since November of 1997 Elbo Finn has been playing Las Vegas, Los Angeles (and surrounding areas), and San Francisco. In addition to consistently filling Salt Lake Clubs Elbo Finn has played as support with many notable acts, including Soul Coughing, Dig, Frank Black, Hovercraft, The Samples, Gene Loves Gezebel, The Flys, possum Dixon and Vallejoa.
Longtime favorties of the old River City Saloon, Hookah Stew returns to the newly renovated venue on Saturday with their high energy stage presence. Hooka

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"
‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
