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

  • Sunset Tavern

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.

Queen Shmooquan, A River Runs Through Her.

  • The Estuary: Terminal 108

Duwamish Revealed and Queen Shmooquan present:

"Queen Shmooquan, A River Runs Through Her."

Queen Shmooquan site specific performance on Seattle's own Superfund site the Duwamish River at Terminal 108, as part of "Duwamish Revealed." 

Description: A site-specific, performance art/comedy, musical ”happening” on the Duwamish River (the Estuary), featuring the sensational super-real hero and renowned Modern Day Oracle, Queen Shmooquan (Jeppa Hall).

 In the Queen’s debut musical “A River Runs Through Her,” she reveals her hopes for a better future for mother earth, the children of the planet and the well-being of the Duwamish River, a designated Superfund site. The Queen, a master shape-shifter, effortlessly transforms from her lucid plain talking self into ethereal and more often than not, unusual embodiments of Duwamish River, American mass culture and the greater world around her. The Queen, long revered for her hilarious, bizarre, and powerful effective healing techniques, will inspire connection, nurture stewardship, educate and encourage creative action in support of the Duwamish River. Attendees will be subjected to song, story, dance, lecture, hugging, and shape-shifting.

 This solo musical production: created, composed and performed by Jeppa Hall, is part of “Duwamish Revealed! A creative celebration of Seattle’s only river” taking place summer of 2015. “Estuary,” an installation of shipping containers that is a massive sculpture, stage, and gathering area, created by Christian French, serves as the backdrop of the Queen’s performance.

Seattle Rock Lottery

– 25 Musicians... 10:00PM5 Bands.

The Crocodile (2118 2nd Ave, Belltown)
Saturday, April 26, 2014
A Benefit for the Washington Music Educators Association
Doors open at 9pm, show starts promptly at 10pm
$10 advance / $15 at door (21+)

The Rock Lottery is simple, but effective. Twenty-five hand-picked musicians meet at 10:00AM at the evening's performance venue. These volunteers are organized into five bands through a lottery-based chance selection. The five groups are released to practice at different locations. The musicians have twelve hours to agree upon a band name and create three to five songs (with a one cover song limit). The bands then return to the venue and perform what they have created in front of a waiting audience.

The twenty-five musicians included in this experiment are carefully selected in an attempt to represent a wide variety of musical styles. This event will bring together many facets of the music community that may seem incompatible, as well as musicians whose interests may conflict. The challenge for these participants is to go beyond their personal and musical differences and work together to create a unified group project that still contains the personal styles of each of its members.

The Rock Lottery is a benefit, with all proceeds going to the Washington Music Educators Association. The musicians chosen to participate are unpaid volunteers. The participants are chosen by the Rock Lottery participant committee with suggestions from former Rock Lottery participants and other members of Seattle's music community.
