The Onlies and their peeps had a fabulous time celebrating that enemy of snakes, St. Patrick. Here's a little idea of how the evening went...
Riley and his pa
THIS JUST IN: Riley and his dad, Johnny, are playing a half-hour's worth of old-timey tunes tomorrow at Seattle's very best ice cream, pinball, and beer hangout, Full Tilt in Columbia City. The tunes start at 6:30 p.m. At 7 p.m., Riley and Johnny will be leading an old-time jam until it's Riley's bedtime.
Full Tilt (which actually serves beer floats for those over 21) is at 5041 Rainier Ave S. (map), and is super family friendly, and they've got old-time pinball machines, Ms. Pac Man, and even some newer stuff. Come!
Dia Dhuit Lads and Lasses!
Make your way down to the Lakewood Community Center (4916 S. Angeline St., Seattle) on yes, Saint Patties Day (Thursday, March 17th). While we’re performing at 7:00 PM, you can come get lucky with tables of Ireland’s finest food, including corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, and dessert. Tix are $15 per person for food, or $10 for food and non-alcoholic drinks (kids under 6 are free). For more info, visit the Community Center’s Web site. We will be playing our traditional Irish repertoire, so if your a sucker for some good Irish tunes, we'll see you there!
A new tune: 'February 30th'
Leo penned an A part to a tune sometime last year, and we revived it after practice yesterday. Sami popped out a B part that we like, and Riley penned a series of chords that really rock. Let us know what you think!
The Onlies: What does it mean?
With our name change will come many questions: why, what does it mean and isn't it a little bit too Indie Rockish. Well, we changed our name because we decided it was time to do this. It had been forever (or so it seems) of having a name that we thought up in a wine bar when we were little. However deep you may think it was, Beach 3 had no meaning. The Onlies is a reference to our only childness (we are all only children)
In the future, we may change it to the the Onlies stringband or something else. If you have any suggestions about how we could make sound more awesome or stingbandish, just leave a comment in the comment box. Leave your name so we can say it on stage and give you the cred that you deserve. We would love to hear from you!
(oh and about the random wolf picture, it's my favorite so I had to share it with all of you!)
By the way, we will be playing with an awesome bass player named RuthMabel at the dance in Olympia. Hope to see you there!
The Onlies! RIP Beach 3.
We changed our name, after much deliberation, and many an evening's brainstorm. We are now 'the Onlies,' so don't freak out when you see that Beach 3 has disappeared.
