Tiny Vipers + Amy Blaschke + Husbands Love Your Wives

Saturday, April 12

Georgetown-based Luckyhorse Industries helps create and sling merch online for everyone from Modest Mouse to the Cave Singers, and one half of the crew that makes it happen is co-founder James Bertram. He’s held it down on the guitar and bass in Lync, Red Stars Theory and 764-HERO and, not surprisingly, he’s wrangled together quite the cache of talented ladies (two of whom have prominent pages on the Luckyhorse website) to help celebrate the opening of his photo project, “24 Year”. The year of Polaroid self-portraits taken over the course of (appropriately) his 24th year is complimented by the musical stylings of Amy Blaschke, who’s come back up North for the event (Seattle recently lost the Night Canopy and Whalebones cornerstone to the allure of L.A.’s hazy sprawl.), this time around showcasing her skills solo; Jesy Fortino AKA Tiny Vipers brings her brand of devastatingly dark folk; and the third girl with a guitar in the lineup is Husbands Love Your Wives’ Jamie Spiess, also an enthusiastic baker of cakes, some of which will be the frosted crown jewels featured during the event’s 3 p.m. cake walk. Dig in. 20Twenty, 5208 Ballard Ave. N.W., 706-0969. 3 p.m. cakewalk, 4 p.m. music. Free. AJA PECKNOLD
