Earshot Jazz Festival: But is it Jazz?
Tuesday, October 31, 2017
Columbia City Theater
$18 adults, $16 Earshot members and seniors, $10 students and military

The Baby Snakes play ZAPPA - With unmitigated audacity, the legendary Queen Shmooquan poots forth a Jazz Noise all over Frank Zappa’s imperial mustache. Qn Shmooquan, backed by a nine-piece band, pays homage to Zappa’s fabled Halloween shows of the 70’s and 80’s. Featuring arrangements by guitarist Simon Henneman and bassist John Seman

King Tears Bat Trip - guitarist Luke Bergman’s four-drummer (Icasiano, Thomas Campbell, Kristian Garrard, Evan Woodle) free-jazz ensemble, with Neil Welch (tenor sax).

DoNormaal - “The first thing you notice when you listen to DoNormaal, real name Christianne Karefa-Johnson, is the uniqueness of her voice: it slurs, falls, and bubbles out of her mouth like a water fountain. It's simultaneously creepy and vulnerable, intimate and jarring, and her sing-songy hooks owe as much to Three 6 Mafia as they do to Nirvana.” (Jackson Howard, Vice)

Goatgirl (jeppa hall aka QS), The Daphnes, Ivory Smith

Goatgirl is the songwriting project of Jeppa K Hall aka Queen Shmooquan. FB Event


The Daphnes, modern chamber pop trio led by harpist Monica Schley, is teaming up two solo female acts: indie pop band leader Ivory Smith; and Queen Smooquan’s half-sister, Goatgirl.

8:00 - Ivory Smith
9:00 - The Daphnes
10:00 - Goatgirl

The Daphnes play modern chamber pop compositions featuring Monica Schley (harp and voice), Nate Omdal (bass) and Julie Baldridge (violin). This unconventional trio draws sounds from neo-folkster M. Ward, 90’s alternative bands Mazzy Star and Cowboy Junkies, and jazz musicians Pharaoh Sanders and Alice Coltrane.

Ivory Smith is a songwriter/composer showcasing the powerful contemporary capabilities and possibilities of the vocal instrument. Her honest and haunted songwriting style encompasses and enchants. Ivory is delighted to be working as a solo artist after many years of ensemble work, with pop/rock bands Bloodbunny, as band leader of Ivory in Ice World and as part of the acclaimed performance-art ensembles Foot in Mouth and Lingo Dance Theater.

Goatgirl is the story-ballads of performance artist/comedian, composer, musician, vocalist, Jeppa K Hall (aka Queen Shmooquan). Goatgirl’s skillful storytelling and unique melodic sensibilities merge with parlor guitar accompaniment and an unusual voice (a la Malvina Reynolds and Peggy Seeger), to deliver uncommon, thought provoking, hybridized folk music.
