This weekend, live music has a tangible temperature – cold. Maybe you’re in Western or Eastern Washington and looking to get away for some winter pastimes, or perhaps you are an avid concertgoer; or, you might even live in Leavenworth yourself. Whatever your flavor, there’s snow place better to be this weekend than the annual Timbrr! Winter Music Festival in Leavenworth, WA. Featuring prominent national headliners like Ra Ra Riot and The Cave Singers alongside a wealth of important Pacific Northwest acts such as Bread & Butter, Moorea Masa & the Mood, Great Grandpa and The Black Tones (in addition to a plethora of wintery amusements), the Timbrr! Music Festival, in its 5th year, is looking as attractive as ever.
Serving as a counterpart to the Timber! Outdoor Music Festival (which occurs every summer), Timbrr! takes its own direction in terms of entertainment. Those looking for time on the slopes can relish in the glory of half-priced ski and snowboard packages at Stevens Pass (we recommend packing extra socks – both here, and really, everywhere in life). Saturday’s schedule includes the festival’s traditional Leisure Games, where attendees can get silly playing classic lawn games for a chance to win some awesome prizes courtesy of Timbrr!. Sub Pop Records’ pop-up record store will also be open for anyone looking to buy band merch or peruse some cool vinyl.
Feeling like more of the type to hang out around the musical happenings? It’s the point of the weekend, after all. Timbrr! will leave crowds satisfied with passionate sets from the scheduled bands on the 21+ stage located at Leavenworth Festhalle. Enjoy a hot toddy or a beer courtesy of Icicle Brewing as you chill to the eclectic sounds of Y La Bamba or Gifted Gab – or, set down your drink and hit the front row for high-energy acts like Hobosexual, Wall of Ears, and The Shivas. But do not mistake us here: the folks at Artist Home intensively curate the lineup each year, meaning every artist scheduled to perform will undoubtedly blow minds. There will even be a few acts open to all ages, performing at Icicle Brewing and Munchen Haus on Saturday (Debbie Miller, Jessica Dennison + Jones, Mike Edel, and The Burying Ground).
Timbrr! Winter Music Festival takes places this weekend, on Friday, January 26th and Saturday, January 27th. Tickets are available online now, with weekend passes on sale for $75 and single-day tickets going for $40. For the lineup, schedule, and further details, visit their website here. Don’t flake out on us – we’ll see you in Leavenworth this weekend.
Tonight! Artist Home has chong the nomad giving a tutorial on making beats, a live performance by Tomo Nakayama. A screen printing tutorial by The Vera Project and even how to make flutes out of carrots from our friends at Honkfest West!

Word to the wise. Follow our pal Andrew Joslyn and the Passenger String Quartet's Instagram page @andrewjoslynmusic.
He's giving sneak previews of his symphonic work on network TV commercials and pop songs. Every student of violin and cello should be following his page. But so should you. You have heard Andrew and his writing on Grammy winning hits by Macklemore and Kesha.
...and his work with folks like Ethan Anderson to save the music industry locally and globally with the Recording Academy / GRAMMYs is something to watch.
Or don't follow him and life will be a little less colorful and inspiring, but sometimes you don't notice how good life can be without good art and good friends.
In that respect Art is dangerous because you will need more. Andrew has plenty in the vault... ... See MoreSee Less
