Scratchdog Stringband Album Release!
7:00 PM - 9:30 PM
Scratchdog Stringband is thrilled to announce the release of their second full-length album, Scratchdog Saloon, accompanied by a month long West Coast Tour to show it off!
Since early 2015, Scratchdog Stringband has been touring throughout the West Coast and Midwest with their fresh amalgamation of classic and contemporary Americana music. Based in Portland, OR, the dogs have blasted through over three-hundred shows in two years, all the while honing their technical finesse through careful craftsmanship and intuitive improvisation. The sound that emerges is uniquely "Scratchdog"? deriving from influences in Rock, Folk, Country and Jazz. This sound has been explored through tens of thousands of road miles, on stages shared with bands like Brothers Comatose and Yonder Mountain String Band, and captured in all its aspects on their original full-length album, "Three Times Fast".?

A Novel Idea Book Club
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
The April book is "An Obvious Fact" by Craig Johnson
Description: In the 12th novel in the New York Times bestselling "Longmire"? series, the basis for the hit Netflix original series "Longmire". Walt, Henry, and Vic discover much more than they bargained for when they are called in to investigate a hit-and-run accident involving a young motorcyclist near Devils Tower. In the midst of the largest motorcycle rally in the world, a young biker is run off the road and ends up in critical condition. When Sheriff Walt Longmire and his good friend Henry Standing Bear are called to Hulett, Wyoming-- the nearest town to America's first national monument, Devila Tower-- to investigate, things start getting complicated. As competing biker gangs; the Bureau of Alocohol, Tobacco, and Firearms; a military-grade vehicle donated to the tiny police force by a wealthy entrepeneur; and Lola, the real-life femme fatale and namesake for Henry's '59 Thunderbird (and, by extension, Walt's granddaughter) come into play, it rapidly becomes clear that there is more to get to the bottom of at this year's Sturgis Motorcycle Rally than a bike accident. After all, in the words of Arthur Conan Doyle, whose "Adventures of Sherlock Holmes"? the Bear won't stop quoting, "There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact. "
