Tonight Havana celebrates it's first birthday with nearly every DJ-from DV One to Merchbot 2000-that's ever spun at the Cuban themed palm tree decked club. Stop by after 10 p.m. to take part in the balloon filled festivities or get a pre-show warm up beverage before heading accross the street to Neumo's!

They've got Vancouver's Lightning Dust (see this week's feature) taking the stage complimented by Seattle's folk inspired trio of former rockers (PGMG's Derek Fudesco, Hint Hint's Pete Quirk and Cobra High's Marty Lund), the Cave Singers.  Expect some hootenany style shennanigans this evening, as Lightning Dust's Amber Webber and Joshua Well's both contributed to the Cave Singers forthcoming full-length, Invitation Songs. They gave a sneak preview of what to expect back in February when both bands played the Croc.  Quirk chimes in here on their soon to be tourmates, as they get ready to hit the west coast together:

SW: How did you come to have Webber sing on your record?

PQ: Through our friend Justin Deary, from Whalebones. He said that if we needed any vocals or extra instrumentation that he could asked some of his friends from Vancouver, where we were headed to record.

SW: Had you seen/heard her prior to then?
 
PQ: We had heard her on the Black Mountain record and were very excited that she wanted to be part of our musical recordings. And maybe a little nervous, sinced we had never met her or Josh, who also plays on the record. But it turned out to be better than we could have imagined.
 
SW: What was she like to work with?

PQ: She really wasted no time and just went in and nailed it. She found a harmony so quickly, Derek and I were just smiling, knowing what an awesome experience it was. Plus, she's hilarious and all of us were drinking beers and getting to know one another, until we dropped her off at the trainstation.
 
SW: What are your thoughts on Lightening Dust's material?
 
PQ:  I love their music, we were lucky enough to play with them in a small house on the outskirts of Vancouver and they really blew me away. I think their record captures that beauty that put forth that night. Plus my mom really likes "that castle song" her words.
 
SW: What are you most looking forward to about the upcoming tour with them?
 
PQ: Not working. Campfiring. California barbecues, some foodspots the big guy [Fudesco] has picked out. Drunken happy squalors in the bright night. High-fives, stage diving not falling, just all the good vibes of traveling with new friends.
