Anderson at CEBU Lounge

This week at CEBU Lounge:

Friday, Dec. 21: The Lower 48, 9:30 p.m. – Catchy, up-tempo folk-pop/indie-rock. Finding harmonies in the youth's hope and melancholy, The Lower 48 craft folk songs you could swear you have been humming for years. “The upstarts braid together nimble lyrics, haunting harmonies, and deceptively simple arrangements, making the beautiful noises of lives still to be lived.”

Saturday, Dec. 22: Casey Anderson Quartet, 9:30 p.m. — Low-down, dirty jazz-funk. Former Gorge denizen Casey Anderson returns to Cebu with his newest project. From Thelonious Monk to Wayne Shorter, this quartet takes inspiration from all jazz facets. Best Western Hood River Inn, 1108 E. Marina Way; 541-386-2200.

"The tangled skirt" opens run at unique venue

Director Judie Hanel presents the Steve Braunstein play “The Tangled Skirt” in an unusual theatrical setting, River Daze Café. Here, Bailey Brice (Bruce Howard) arrives at a small town bus station and has a fateful encounter with Rhonda Claire (Desiree Amyx Mackintosh). Small talk turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse and both seek advantage. The actors present the story as a staged reading in the café, where large windows and street lights lend themselves to the bus station setting, according to Hanel. Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 1. (There is no Friday performance.) Tickets available at the door or Waucoma Bookstore: $15 adults, $12 seniors and children under 15. No children under 9. Enlarge
