Savory September: Gin & Jazz

We’re gonna party like it’s 1929! Shine your spats and don your finest flapper flare for this Roaring Twenties-themed party, complete with bathtub gin and bawdy jazz. Heavy hors d’oeuvres and hooch are on the house. Gin & Jazz is sure to be the party of the century, the last century that is! Twenties-style dress encouraged.

Arts at the Rives Theatre presents YARN
Saturday, Sep 29, 8 PM, Rives Theatre
$8 in Advance · $10 at Door

Yarn is back for a sophomore visit to the Rives Theatre! This Brooklyn-based Americana/Alt-Country band’s sound owes as much to Gram Parsons and Earl Scruggs as to Jerry Garcia and Exile On Main Street-era Rolling Stones. Following in a fine tradition that includes forward thinking roots bands like The Flying Burrito Brothers and New Riders of The Purple Sage, Yarn weaves roots music idioms into a fresh sound that turns on hipsters and fans of country music alike, with technically impressive song-crafting and universal tales from the road of life. Tickets at Studio 107, Woodall’s Music or at the door the night of the show.
