“The audience itself plays the role of detective in this hilarious ‘relationship thriller’ about love, lust and the power of deception.”

Join Twelfth Night Productions for a comedy of suspicion and intrigue, where nothing is ever quite what it seems. Is Lisa having a torrid affair with Adrian, her British theatre director? Or is her husband Matthew making it up so that he has something wicked to report to his therapist?

In the final act we meet Cory, the mysterious woman who brings this twisted story to its penultimate conclusion. Or is she also just a figment of Matthew’s vivid imagination?

dandilyonsoupSaturday, February 15 I Dandilyon Soup Reunion Show @ High Dive

“This Saturday, Dandilyon Soup will break out the old songs and perform a reunion show at High Dive in Fremont!”

This Saturday, Dandilyon Soup will break out the old songs and perform a reunion show at High Dive in Fremont!

Dandilyon Soup was one of the many bands that helped shape the “Seattle” sound of the early 1990s. Although they were not considered a Grunge band, there were certainly shared influences.

Through the years 1990-95 Dandilyon Soup released four albums, toured the Western United States playing over 200 shows per year and shared the stage with such great bands as Soundgarden, Candlebox, Best Kissers in The World, Sweetwater, Warbabies, Seven Year Bitch, Gruntruck, L7, TAD, Reverend Horton Heat, Running with Scissors and My Sisters Machine. They consistently sold out local venues including RCKNDY, The Offramp, Fenix, Colourbox, Weathered Wall and The Vogue. They headlined the Seattle Hempfest to over 50,000 people at Volunteer Park and then returned for Seattle Hempfest at Gasworks Park to an even bigger crowd.

With songs like “Save Me” and “Cold Out Here in The Real World” getting heavy play on local radio stations, and with lots of hard work and sweat, Dandilyon Soup built a VERY loyal following through their captivating live performances.

Also performing will be Awfully Sudden and The Rainiers.
