Celebrate New Year's Eve with The Bridge & The Trongone Band at The Hamilton Live!

December 27, 2018

Ring in 2019 with a special New Year’s Eve featuring The Bridge and The Trongone Band at The Hamilton Live!

 

Enjoy a complimentary champagne toast at midnight, party favors, and a packed dance floor.

Doors open at 7:00 and show starts at 8:30 pm.

 

The leaders of The Bridge have traveled an enormous distance to get where they are; all the way from living off-the-grid on a remote Hawaiian farm—in Kenny Liner’s case—and chafing in the buttoned-down corporate world—in Cris Jacobs’—to create a formidable band that’s fed by hometown roots and laced with wanderlust. Jacobs (vocals and guitar), Liner (mandolin and beatboxing), Dave Markowitz (bass and vocals), Patrick Rainey (saxophone), Mike Gambone (drums), and Mark Brown (keyboards)—otherwise known as The Bridge—have come into their own, covering unbounded musical territory with no shortage of verve and striking a rare balance between high-quality songs and sharp instrumental interplay. They have the tools to see their expansive musical vision through, starting with the unorthodox nature of their lineup: string band elements powered by a plugged-in R&B- and roots rock-ready rhythm section, heated by keyboard and horn and, here and there, seasoned with syncopated beatboxing.

Hailing from Richmond, VA, The Trongone Band is touring in support of their 2017 debut album, “Keys to the House”, released on Harmonized Records. With a sound that Paste Magazine likens to the “freak-outs of My Morning Jacket with the Muscle Shoals-inspired Leslie speakers and The Band’s narrative storytelling”, The Trongone Band is turning heads and making an impact on the Southern Rock ‘n’ Soul and Americana scenes.

Christopher Baer at Addison/Ripley Now

October 24, 2018

Through December 1, 2018, visit Addison/Ripley Fine Art Gallery for Christopher Baer’s second show, Shining Invitation, a collection of oil paintings on panel and canvas, continuing his bold exploration of paint and color as an inescapable physical presence.

 

A native Washington, Baer is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, where he studied industrial design and would later gravitate toward painting and fine art.

 

Baer uses foundational design elements (line, gesture, negative space, color field) as tools for artistic composition and spatial relationships. His work is influenced by and builds from the foundation of the mid-century US modernists. Baer also works in glass, prints, and digital art, some of which deal with the subject matter of the everyday placed out of context. His work is found in corporate and private collections in the US and Europe.

Addison/Ripley Fine Art is located at 1670 Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown.
