Tomorrow Night: Ravenna Woods & The Horde and The Harem

November 5, 2010

What’s your Saturday night shaping up to look like?  If it’s anything like mine, you’re already anticipating tasty ice cream, thirst quenching beer AND an amazing (FREE) live concert at Full Tilt Ice Cream in Columbia City.

Tomorrow night, at 9PM join Northwest Folklife and Full Tilt Ice Cream as they  present two truly spectacular local bands that are sure to knock your socks off!

The evening starts with The Horde and The Harem at  9 PM  followed by Ravenna Woods at 10 PM.  Both of these bands are on the rise, so take advantage of tomorrow night and check them out…I know I will!

Here’s a sneak peak:

Also, not only can you enjoy a  great concert but by endulging in the Clusters of Folk ice cream, you’re also helping to support the production of the 2011 Northwest Folklife Festival, May 27-30, 2011.  10% of the Clusters of Folk ice cream sales come back to Folklife.  Hurry because the special run of Clusters of Folk ends November 16!

To further sweeten the deal  (as if you neede another reason to attend),  Full Tilt recently won best ice cream shop in Western Washington.  If you don’t believe me, try it tomorrow night and you’ll experience first hand how they received the honor!

See you all there!
