Augustana’s thunderstorm of yearning vocals, resonating piano, moody guitars, and restless percussion may appeal to fans of Coldplay and The Wallflowers, but its earnest lyricism and thickset soundscapes defy such easy, yet flattering, comparisons. Shortly after the band’s 2002 inception, it found itself on tour with the likes of Counting Crows and Maroon 5. Its major-label debut, All the Stars and Boulevards landed the hit “Boston” on countless television soundtracks and mixtapes for lovelorn Civil War reenactors. Today, the band builds on its musical legacy as it tours behind its latest album, simply titled Augustana. Performing the album's soaring kickoff single “Steal Your Heart,” the seasoned tunesmiths spelunk polyphonic caverns while singer Dan Layus knocks emotive shanties out of the park. Oregon’s Greylag opens the show with a mélange of harmonies and lullabies about homicide from its EP The Only Way to Kill You. With a rich history as a haunted early American brewery, Rams Head Live! now thrives as a 26,000-square-foot entertainment oasis sporting a bevy of viewing levels, video monitors, and five bars.
The Trawler Fest Boat Show is an in-water showcase of more than 60 cruising motorboats and also includes a shore-side expo, afternoon activities, and demonstrations of boating equipment and procedures. Anacortes is the second stop on this five-port event, which also includes San Diego, Baltimore, Fort Lauderdale, and Warwick (RI). Produced by PassageMaker Magazine, Trawler Fest is a playground for boat lubbers and abandoned fish-people looking for a way back home. This deal gives you access to afternoon activities, including interactive demonstrations on topics such as life-raft inflation, man-overboard recovery, and how to use sound and light signals. Nautical newbies can learn a thing or two from PassageMaker Magazine and Ocean Voyager, two of several publications included in your complimentary welcome kit, along with a reusable tote bag and an assortment of yachty schwag, which is far less abominable than its homophonic cousin, yeti schwag. For an additional cost, you can attend seminars on safety, anchoring, finding your personal cruising style, and blaming your artfully popped collar on the brisk sea breeze.
As Tommy, one of Howl at the Moon's Chicago-based piano players, explains on the club’s website, “Every night…we try and throw a party, regardless of whether it’s a Tuesday night or a Saturday night.” The bar’s trademark dueling pianos serve as the epicenter of these nightly celebrations; patrons submit their favorite songs on slips of paper for the pianists and backing musicians to recreate. If the website’s playlist is any indication, the bands can handle popular songs from all genres and eras, from Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” to Kanye West’s “All of the Lights.” The performances are spirited: colorful lights splash upon a stage where servers, guests, and chairs that have somehow developed mobility all dance along to the music.
Fueling the celebration is the bar’s indulgent selection of drinks. Servers stand over patrons to plunge jello injectors into their mouths, and revelers grab colorful straws to help drain 86-ounce booze buckets filled with sangria or other fruity libations. Pomegranate liqueur and honey-infused whiskey sweeten specialty cocktails, and local beers add depth to coolers stocked with Stella Artois and Dos Equis.

In 1983, "Beefalo" Bob DiMartino began a small-scale catering operation built around no-frills, classic recipes of pit-roasted barbecue, growing his business to include a carry-out joint, sports bar, and even an upscale banquet hall. Bob's process is simple: slow cooking beef, ham, turkey, slabs of ribs and morsels of pork and chicken over smoking hickory fires and not cutting corners with gas jets or heat vision. The sports bar garnishes these backyard-style feasts with plates of oysters, lump crab cakes, and strip steak, as well as sports games on 20 big-screen TVs and rivers of cold beer.
True to its roots as a catering outfit, Beefalo Bob's supplies parties of up to 10,000 with bull roasts, crab feasts, and roasted pigs, as well as rentals of tents, tables, and moon bounces. Fancy occasions find a home in the 250-person Reflections Hall, decked out with chandeliers, DJs, a fireplace, hints of sparkly gold, and a wide-open hardwood dance floor.
