Seattle’s Longest Running Showcase of Dark Cabaret Celebrates 11 Years This Halloween


Posted by admin | Posted in Gardener Tools | Posted on 15-10-2014


Seattle, WA (PRWEB) October 02, 2014

Hosted by northwest cabaret punks The Bad Things, Seattle’s longest-running showcase of dark cabaret, Cabaret Macabre, will celebrate its 11th year at Columbia City Theater this Halloween Friday, October 31st. Tickets available via Brown Paper Tickets: Additional performers include the prohibition-era jazz of Bakelite 78, the klezmer-swing of The Debaucherauntes, tribal bellydance troupe The Tribal Kind, Cabaret Macabre co-producer and solo fusion dancer Miss J9 Fierce, gothic-inspired bellydance from Maureen O’Donnell and creator of the Tarot of the Pomegranate The Major Arcana tarot deck, performance artist and dancer An-Magrith Erlandsen. The evening will be MC’d by foul-mouthed headmistress Diva Le Deviant, known for her work with Sinner Saint Burlesque, Seattle’s longest-running weekly burlesque revue until 2013 when its venue The Noc Noc closed its doors.

Over the last 11 years we’ve featured everything from suspension piercing to bellydance to aerial performance to burlesque, said Jimmy The Pickpocket Berg, producer and founder of Cabaret Macabre and lead vocalist/accordionist of The Bad Things. While in years past we’ve featured performers from around the world, the last couple years have been focused on the wealth of world-class talent that Seattle provides both musically and performance-wise.

Originally hosted in an old warehouse in Georgetown in 2004, Cabaret Macabre has since been held at ACT Theater, FRED Wildlife Refuge, Jules Maes Saloon and the Columbia City Theater. It was the birthing ground of some of Seattle’s performance institutions such as PURE Cirkus and Seattle Semi-Pro Wrestling and has featured such celebrated performers as Hacki Ginda, the award-winning clown from Berlin known locally for his appearances in the Moisture Festival; Thomas Truax, New York-based inventor of experimental musical instruments; Danbert Nobacon, co-founder of UK anarcho-pop group Chumbawamba; LA-based cabaret songstress Eliza Rickman and legendary Boston cabaret-rockers Reverend Glasseye. The Bad Things and Baby Gramps have performed every year since Cabaret Macabre’s inception.

This year will focus on Seattle-based talent with dance performance intermingling with musical acts. Expect an exciting evening filled with dark, vintage-inspired music, gothic-infused dance performance, sassy and sexy interludes and excessive Halloween pageantry all housed within the historical walls of the Columbia City Theater.

Tickets are $ 17/$ 20 day of show via Brown Paper Tickets at: Also full weekend passes that include admission to La Petite Mort’s Dark Cabaret at Columbia City Theater on Saturday, Nov. 1St are available for $ 30 at: More information on both nights can be found at and

If you would like to interview Jimmy the Pickpocket, Miss J9 Fierce or Baby Gramps by phone, or if youd like any of the dance performers to appear in-studio, call Jimmy the Pickpocket at 206-384-3341.

More About the Headliners:

The Bad Things ( In 2002. The Bad Things formed out of the ashes of A Midnite Choir, a cult favorite in Seattles underground cabaret scene. Members Jimmy the Pickpocket Berg (accordion, vocals) and Austin Mad Wilcox Quist (upright bass, musical saw) began as a two-piece, busking on the wet, Seattle sidewalks under the Bad Things moniker. The band eventually grew into the 6-piece ensemble that you see today which includes Beau Stanislav the Gypsy Hebert (acoustic guitar/mandolin), G. Miles Captain Panto (banjo/electric guitar), Brendan Patrick Hogan (trumpet/keys) and Steve Lord Kamke (drums and percussion). The band has released four albums in their 12 years together: 2004’s The Bad Things, 2006’s Vaudeville Show, 2008’s It’ll All Be Over Soon and their most recent release After the Inferno released this past September 2014 to rave reviews from national press. They also recorded an album in 2010 with Chumbawamba co-founder Danbert Nobacon entitled Woebegone. The band has played thousands of shows including appearances at Bumbershoot, REVERB Music Festival, Northwest Folklife Festival, the Georgetown Music Festival and this year’s Macefield Music Festival. They’ve also appeared on Nancy Guppy’s ArtZone and provided the soundtrack to a 2013 Super Bowl commercial for the Dunder Mifflin paper line by Quill.

Baby Gramps ( Baby Gramps is a high energy performer with an endless repertoire. He plays acoustic antique resonator National Steel guitars, and sings his own unique arrangements of rags, jazz, & blues songs from the 20’s & 30’s, folk songs, and many originals with wordplay, humor, and throat singing. He appeals to a wide range of audiences from folk to jam band to punk to old timey traditional and to kids of all ages. Venues he performs at vary from intimate coffeehouses and pubs, to large concert halls, theaters, and festivals across the States, Canada, Europe, and Australia. According to an article in Seattle Metropolitan Magazine, Baby Gramps is acknowledged as one of the top 50 most influential musicians in the last 100 years along with Ray Charles, Jelly Roll Morton, Jimi Hendrix, Quincy Jones, The Wailers, The Ventures, Sound Garden, and Pearl Jam. He is credited with making Seattle audiences aware of old blues and novelty songs that the rest of the world has mostly forgotten. Baby Gramps toured Australia, England, and Ireland as part of the Rogues Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs, and Chanteys CD Concert Tour with Tim Robbins (actor), Marianne Faithful, Martha and Rufus Wainwright, Jenny Muldaur, Lou Reed, The Watersons, Martin Carthy and Eliza, Suzanne Vega, Ralph Steadman, and many other internationally know performers. The Rogues Gallery CD, produced by Johnny Depp and Hal Wilner in connection with The Pirates of the Caribbean film, landed Baby Gramps on the David Letterman Show.

A Speech Nutrients Coupon Can Save You Money:Speak Supplements Reviews

Many people find it challenging to incorporate supplements into the diet because of their cost. With a Speech Nutrients coupon you will be able to get Omega 3 supplements for your children and save money. Nourishlife, the parent company, makes speak supplements, which deliver Omega 3 and vitamin E that children need for adequate growth and development.

Omega 3 fatty acids are important for brain health and immune function, among other functions they have in the body. Vitamin E is a powerful anti-oxidant that prevents damage from free radicals, and is important for the health of the cell membranes in our bodies.

Omega 3 is an Essential Fatty Acid

Our body cannot synthesize its own Omega 3, so we must consume it from our food. Children and adults often do not consume enough fresh fish and plants, which are high in Omega 3 fatty acids. Our modern diet is based on convenience, and not always focused on health. Because we are missing Omega 3 and are consuming high levels of Omega 6 there is an imbalance.

With a Speech Nutrients coupon, you can address this imbalance and lighten your financial load. It is important to have enough Omega 3 in the diet. With a high quality fish oil supplement, you will be able to make sure that your children are getting the right amount of Omega 3 in their diet.

Give it a Try With a Speech Nutrients Coupon

If you are apprehensive about spending too much on supplements, you can look for valuable savings with coupons. Coupons for speak supplements can be found in many places, and will give you the extra motivation to try out a new supplementation routine for your children.

Nourishlife has a great starter kit for new families that provides the supplement at a lower cost than their regular price. They have done their best to make this an accessible change for your family. The starter kit comes with an informational brochure and a handy dietary log for tracking your child’s progress with the new routine.

We Should All be Concerned With Quality

This company has gone to great lengths to ensure their products are of the highest quality, exceeding US and European standards. Their Omega 3 oils are handled gently and never heated over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. This temperature is well below the threshold that Omega can tolerate. The oil is also always in a vacuum-sealed environment.

This careful attention to the product’s needs make sure that this supplement is fresh and effective. Your Speech Nutrients coupon will do more than just save you money. You can read the feedback on their site to see what other parents think about it, while your coupon KIT gives you $20 off your order (not valid on Starter Kits).

The Four Ps of Growing Delicious Blueberries from Fall Creek Farm & Nursery


Posted by admin | Posted in Raised Garden Beds | Posted on 30-09-2014


Lowell, Oregon (PRWEB) April 23, 2014

Theres nothing like fresh-picked berries to add to a morning smoothie, fruit salad or evening dessert. For foodies and families wanting to grow their own blueberries, picking which variety and growing them doesn’t have to be hard.

The secret to blueberry success, according to berry expert Amelie Brazelton Aust, a second generation owner at Fall Creek Farm & Nursery whos been growing blueberries on her family farm since she was a child, is the Four Ps: planting, pruning, picking, and protecting.

While I know a lot about the blueberry business, I do not have a green thumb like the rest of my family. However, blueberries are relatively simple and even I have great success with my blueberry plants at my home, says Aust. “Simply following these four simple tips help bushes flourish with berries season after season.


The first secret to success is planting the right variety. BrazelBerries blueberries are perfect for growing in patio pots, raised beds and directly in the garden. Home gardeners and cooks who grow BrazelBerries know these small edible fruit bushes are simple to grow, beautiful in the landscape and delicious to eat.

Once the blueberry bush has been purchased, its important to plant it in the right place. Blueberries need at least six hours of sun each day. Its the sun that makes berries sweet and juicy, so plant in a very sunny spot, says Aust.

Next, consider the soil. Blueberries love acidic soils, says Aust. A pH of 4.5-5.5 is ideal. A simple soil test indicates acidity, which can easily be adjusted with amendments. Both soil kits and amendments are available at any local garden center.

Aust recommends giving the plants roots plenty of growing room when planting in containers. Plant them in pots 16 inches or more in diameter and water deeply and regularly to make sure all of the soil within the pot is moist to the point that water is dripping from the pots bottom drainage holes.


Cutting beautiful branches off any plant can be daunting. Aust says, The truth is that blueberries over-produce, and pruning helps it to put enough energy into producing the best plant and big, yummy fruit for the next season.” Pruning also gives the bush more space between its branches and allows air to flow freely through the plant, helping to prevent disease.

Its best to prune blueberries in late winter when the plants are still dormant, says Aust, but Ive pruned mine in the spring too before flowering, and they’ve done great. Remove all the stems that are damaged, old or dead. Aust says not to be afraid to take out up to a quarter or even a third of the bush, then trim it up to a neat and tidy look.

Fertilizing is recommended in early spring. Add an acid fertilizer such as those for rhododendrons and azaleas, Aust suggests. I tend to throw on half a handful of slow-release fertilizer. A high-nitrogen organic fertilizer such as blood meal or acidic cottonseed meal works great too. She recommends a second fertilizer application in late spring to give the plants an extra burst of energy for fruit production.


With planting and pruning in the bag, the next steppickingis the pay off. Be sure to watch the berries carefully and pick them before the birds do.

Heres what to expect from each BrazelBerries blueberry variety:

Peach Sorbet blueberry: Juicy, sweet blueberries appear in mid-summer on plants with stunning leaves ranging from peach to pink to orange to emerald green.

Jelly Bean blueberry: Large, flavorful, super-sweet blueberries reminiscent of homemade jelly in mid-summer with super sweet flavor like homemade blueberry jelly.

Blueberry Glaze blueberry: Bundles of small, almost black, and intensely flavored wild-like berries packed with antioxidants are ready for mid-summer.


A little protection provided by the home gardener ensures the blueberry bush will thrive for another bountiful season. If birds are a problem, cover with bird netting in the spring to keep critters away. Birds are less likely to eat the fruit when the plants are in containers on the patio.

Winter weather poses the biggest risk to berry bushes. In very cold regions, apply a deep layer of mulch around the base of the bush to protect the roots, Aust says. Blueberries in pots are even easier to protect from winter weather if you are in a really cold area, just move the pots into an unheated garage or against a building and cover with thick mulch, burlap or a blanket.

Both Peach Sorbet and Blueberry Glaze are hardy to USDA Zone 5, while Jelly Bean withstands the slightly colder conditions of USDA Zone 4.

Springs sudden cold snaps endanger emerging growth, as well. Again, Aust suggests covering blueberry bushes with burlap or blankets when the forecast calls for frost once buds and flowers are emerging. Springs warm days can be deceptive, Aust says. Keep an eye on the weather, and before night falls, cover and protect that tender new growth.

Following these tips will ensure success with your blueberries season after season.
