April 26th | Doors at 7:30 Show 8:15-10:30pm

Anna Tivel and Matt Dorrien (Portland comes to Santa Rosa)

Anna Tivel

Anna Tivel is a Portland, OR-based songwriter who grounds her work in quiet stories of everyday struggle. She’s a keen and detailed observer, and the characters in her songs come alive in small moments of beauty and despair. With three full-length albums out on Portland’s well-loved Fluff & Gravy Records and a fourth due out this spring, Tivel spends her time writing and touring the US and overseas. Her most recent album, ‘Small Believer,’ was produced by guitar mastermind Austin Nevins (Josh Ritter, Anais Mitchell) and released in September of 2017. NPR praised the album, saying it “repeatedly achieves this exquisite balance of the quotidian and the sublime with imagery that’s deeply poetic.” Her previous album, Heroes Waking Up was hailed by Folk Radio UK as “a superb and sublime album from a voice that deserves to be shouted from the highest rooftops.”

Matt Dorrien

The essential elements to Matt Dorrien’s rollicking, Tin Pan Alley-inspired new record are as follows: piano, Nilsson, whiskey, heartbreak, a little more whiskey, Randy Newman, old phonographs, and New Orleans brass bands. A big, swinging pean to loneliness and the golden age of pop songwriting, In the Key of Grey is the sound of East Village piano bars long past closing, when the house musician has had a few too many, and the regulars are gathering ‘round to drown out their sorrows in song.

TLC Song Service featuring Vanessa May (Rainbow Girls), Twin Soles, and M’Gilvry Allen

TLC Song Service is an intimate evening with three artists passing the spotlight. Expect insights into the craft of the song from inspiration to final form. *This monthly event is moving to 1st Thursdays starting in June.

Vanessa May

Vanessa May is 1/3 of Rainbow Girls; Driven into the present by the past, Vanessa finds herself at the intersection of time. Her music speaks to all that has passed while singing straight to the moment. She’ll take you into timelessness. She holds history accountable and makes the future tolerable. She makes music of the mud of the earth and sends it to the heavens — we are here to hear it. https://www.rainbowgirlsmusic.com

Twin Soles

Twin Soles is the musical manifestation of the union of Shawna and Cory Herve. Opening their hearts to reveal soaring highs and painful lows in hopes of inspiring and connecting with people who believe in honest love. They wear many different shoes at different times but what matters is that they walk together through thick and thin, holding their souls in their hands to guide the soles of their feet. Inspired by many styles and eras, you will be just as likely to hear them sing Hoagy Carmichael as Alice in Chains, though it all comes with a distinct acoustic sound and vocal blend that is their own. They also mix in uniquely beautiful original songs about family, love and heartbreak that will give you a window into the strength and tenderness of their connection. https://www.twinsolesmusic.com/

M’Gilvry Allen

M’Gilvry Allen is a musician and producer from Sebastopol, California. His music blends folk instruments, modern production, and multilayered vocal harmonies into a kaleidoscope of familiar sounds. His debut album, In My Garden, was entirely self produced in a handmade earth plaster music studio in rural Oregon. M’Gilvry’s work can be found on all major streaming platforms and on social media as @mgilvryallen.https://mgilvryallen.com/

The Spindles 20th Anniversary Show with The Orchid Killers

The Spindles

A staple of the Sonoma County music scene since their inception in 2001, The Spindles have wooed generations of audiences with their resplendent Second-Wave Americana and Chamber-Rock favorites. Compelled by their revered triple-threat leader Coalmine Spindle, songwriter, singer and guitar-player extraordinaire, The Spindles are comprised of co-founder and efficacious bass player Jaime Voss, the inimitable Henry Nagle on lead guitar, the incomparable drummer Jonathan Hughes, preeminent trombone and bass clarinet players Achilles Poloynis and Mark Philpott, respectively, and the ineffable Ursa Born on backing vocals. facebook.com/thespindlesmusic

The Orchid Killers

Born in the Sonoma County folk revival of the 2010s, The Orchid Killers have been making crunchy acoustic music for more than a decade. Featuring original songs by Karen Frindell Teuscher on clawhammer banjo and vocals, and Kevin Teuscher on vocals and guitar, The Orchid Killers are also known for covers of old-time fiddle tunes driven by fiddle player Brian Carlisle. Subjects of their originals include county back roads, bad boyfriends, and the occasional song of life and death. The Orchid Killers have recorded two CDs at Doug Jayne’s Jackalope Records featuring local luminaries Henry Nagle of The Spindles, Bob Murnane of Lucky Ol’ Bones, and Tony Robinson — a founding member of Poor Man’s Whiskey. Drop by The Next Record Store in Santa Rosa and ask for a copy of Portraits Engrained or The New Civilized by The Orchid Killers. I’m sure Doug has a few laying around. Facebook.com/theorchidkillers

Celebrating the new neighborhood of The Lost Church San Francisco (coming later in 2022)

Chuck Berry at Wolfgang's Nightclub in North Beach

What would have been our neighbor in the 1980s…

Wolfgang’s nightclub, 901 Columbus Ave.

Originally built in 1923 as a nightclub called Club Lido. Later became a jazz club called the Italian Village in the 40s, 50s and 60s. Shortened to The Village in the 70s.

In the 80s, it became one of the city’s top rock venues as Wolfgang’s and U2, Midnight Oil, Randy Newman, Todd Rundgren, Jerry Garcia, the Ramones. and Spinal Tap all played here.

In this photo, Chuck Berry performs in 1981. A fire burned the hotel above the club in 1987 and it was shuttered due to smoke and fire damage. The building now shares the space with Cobb’s Comedy Club and the Columbus Cafe.

Hangover Sessions with DJ Webbles

Sundays 11am-1pm PST on Lost Church Free Radio


Michael Vincent on Hangover Sessions with DJ Webbles

Episode Replay this Sunday, April 23rd

Hangover Sessions 260 airs one last time this Sunday 11am – 1pm on The Lost Church – San Francisco and features a debut appearance by Michael Vincent.
Michael joins us for an extended interview and some humble chat along with his guitarist Marty, performing several live original songs too, from the barn!
In his writing Michael calls upon his personal experiences through 30+ years as a social work chaplain.
“My song writing is influenced by every human experience known to man – or woman – and the way our deepest selves are shaped by those experiences.”
He is still an occasional volunteer at a South Bay drop-in-center for the homeless where he had a career as a social work chaplain. “I still have both that abiding sense of faith that somehow manages to see people in destitute poverty through their despair and helps get them off the street, along with being well acquainted with what it means to share bread with people who are personally so vulnerable they’re virtually stripped naked of every pretense imaginable.”
“I also write pop songs,” Michael says with a wink and a smile.
“While I’m committed to the cause of those living on the margins, I’m not fixated that this is the only thing worth communicating about in music. Pop music in particular carries a great release – no matter what your economic situation – to be able to take a breath of fresh air and actually infuse something positive into it all is a great thing.”
