Each online ticket order will receive a link via email to vote for the songs in Baroness’ setlist for this show. All votes must be submitted no later than 8 days prior to performance date.
Grammy-nominated exploratory rock band Baroness return with their most ambitious work to date, fifth album Gold & Grey. Set for release on the band’s own Abraxan Hymns, Gold & Grey spills triumphantly past genre barriers, their anthemic alt-metal hooks ricocheting between the circuitous twists of prog and jazz, the moody swirls of space-rock and noise, and the hypnotic pulses of trip-hop and 20th Century minimalism.

In this workshop, you can look forward to a fun, hands-on session going over everything you ever wanted to know about using and maintaining a wild-yeast, naturally fermented sourdough starter. By learning the techniques used by artisan bakers, you’ll get peak performance from your starter and will learn how to prepare it for baking all your favorites like pizza and traditional rustic loaves. In this 2-hour workshop, we’ll look at all the angles to feeding and maintaining a sourdough starter, and use it to make a yummy sourdough flatbread in class. You’ll go home with your own starter, as well as the knowledge and confidence to use it to bake your own sourdough bread at home.
