Honestly, who doesn’t get a little giddy at the prospect of Leavenworth in the winter? The little Bavarian-ish paradise, with its snow and twinkling lights, tasty restaurants, and cozy bars holds a charm that few can deny. It was definitely a factor when Artist Home decided to host the first Timbrrr! Winter Music Festival in the town five years ago. It’s also what makes Timbrrr! one of the most magical festivals around. Thank goodness it’ll be back this coming January 26th and 27th. Tickets are available, and the lineup looks to be as hot as the weather will be chill.
Imagine sipping a beer, sitting at an outdoor fireplace, listening to a band play. Maybe it’s Moorea Masa & the Mood, or Canada’s Burying Ground. Imagine cradling a hot toddy cocktail in your palms while taking in a rock show after spending the day in a winter wonderland. Imagine that you’re rocking out to Ra Ra Riot, Cave Singers, or Hobosexual, who are returning for their second taste of Timbrrr! since 2015, and fresh off the heels of their latest killer release, Monolith.
Other great bands abound in this lineup: Y La Bamba, The Black Tones, Great Grandpa, Bread & Butter, and Wall of Ears will be there, too. You can spend Saturday afternoon pub crawling and taking in some of the quieter acts, you can browse Sonic Boom’s popup record and merch shop, or you can pick up a discounted lift ticket and hit the slopes at Stevens Pass. If you decide to hang out in town, you can compete in a game of Cornhole, Washers, or Ladderball to win prize packages.
Various hotel partners in town offer accommodations deals for Timbrrr! attendees, and if previous years are any indication, Kavu will be selling some killer Timbrrr! branded gear that is unique to the festival. There will be a tasty Hot Toddy Garden as well as food vendors inside the main Festhalle venue. All in all, Timbrrr! is, as always, an awesome, one of a kind festival in a gorgeous location. We hope to see you there!

So we stumbled upon this gem at Fisherman's Fest. We caught Steel Beans incredible LIVE show leading his orchestra. I found myself searching for who this inigma was, and the next thing I discover is this video promoting his set at Fisherman's.
Then I dived even deeper into the abyss of available video and discover this Libertine playing guitar and drums at the same time and killing it. In a finely tuned and curated program of Indie Gold stood this silver fox. A man of a certain age. So I thought. It turns out he's still in his 20s.
I don't know what sort of affair Frank Zappa once had in this city of Lynnwood but someone needs to give this kid a DNA test and a record deal. Shame on me for not knowing his name until today.
It's Steel Beans right? Who is Steel Beans? Is that like his name? Or his Band? Or his cat?
Feel free to comment with info on this mysterious stranger. I thought he was like 50.
