Come out to welcome Karl Blau home from his recent national tour with the K Records band LAKE. The eclectic solo artist from Anacortes has played in several bands over the years, such as D+, Brothers Blau, Captain Fathom and Your Heart Breaks and has collaborated The Microphones, Mount Eerie and Laura Veirs.
