From the event description:

The best introduction to Jon Wolfe is the basic yet not so simple fact that he’s a country singer and songwriter.

And to learn his life story — from small town Oklahoma to the bustling big city commodities trading floor to the dancehalls and honky-tonks of Texas and Oklahoma to Music Row, to give the highlights — and witness his faith in the power of music and determination to touch the hearts of others with something that means so much to him.

When: Saturday, Aug. 3, 9 p.m.- Sunday, Aug. 4, 1 a.m.
Where: Ponderosa Lounge & Grill, 10350 N. Vancouver Way

The Garcia Birthday Band

From the event description:

Garcia Birthday Band, based in Portland, Oregon, is a group of veteran musicians interpreting and celebrating the vast repertoire of the late Jerry Garcia and The Grateful Dead.

Solid chops, tight arrangements and fine harmonies all contribute to the band's musical travels and explorations of possibly the greatest and most diverse songbooks of all time.

When: Saturday, Aug. 3, 9-11:59 p.m.
Where: Doug Fir Lounge, 830 E. Burnside St.
