Seriously Silly Songs hopes to bring The Kings of Mongrel Folk and The Colonels of Corn (the Canote Brothers), some of the silliest singer/songwriters in the Pacific Northwest, to Port Townsend to perform for you and to benefit The Boiler Room in April of 2015! We've booked the Maritime Center Ballroom, we've spoken with these awesome performers, and they will be there.... But there's an IF! >>>>>>>>
Here's the twist: Tickets are available by donation through our indiegogo campaign, with some seriously awesome (and some seriously silly) perks available depending on how much you donate. But if we don't raise enough, these awesome performers won't be coming... we'll just have a little party instead. PLEASE HELP US MAKE IT AWESOME! We have until February 4th!
Check out the link below for more info, for a list of perks, and for previews of the performers. And seriously, look at those perks! AND HELP US SPREAD THE WORD! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

“The Boiler Room has been many things to many people. A coffeehouse, an art gallery, a private business, a nonprofit teen center, a cause, a scapegoat. But to me it has been a salvation – a place to be, and belong. Home. I’ve worked with some of the finest human beings I’ve met to preserve a common goal of home for ourselves and anyone else who needed it, to resolve the question of where do I belong. So many people ask it, and we can never afford to let ignorance settle such questions.”
