2022-06-11 Hardly Raining
Akre has fronted Seattle musical groups (Hammerbox, Goodness, The Rockfords) since the early grunge era. Her band at this show included Tim DiJulio (guitar, vocals), Aaron Staley (guitar), Andy Stoller (bass), Sean Bates (keys), Chris Crumpler (drums), and Gretchen Lemon (vocals). Danny Newcomb (guitar, vocals) and Chris Friel (drums) made guest appearances.
Newcomb’s own band opened the evening, including DiJulio and Stoller. COVID-related absences led to substitutions for the group’s usual lineup, including guitarist Jeff Fielder in his first appearance on drums (!).
