Shook Twins and Shakin Not Stirred
You'll get Shook, you'll get Shakin' ... and you'll probably get in the mood to shimmy when Live at the Linen presents Shook Twins and Shakin' Not Stirred at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 23, at the Linen Building, 1402 W. Grove St. in Downtown Boise's Linen District. $10 advance, $12 at the door; advance tickets at The Record Exchange (1105 W. Idaho St., Boise) and brownpapertickets.com. All ages, full bar (I.D. required), Pie Hole pizza. Plenty of free, off-street parking is available at the Linen Building.
Shook Twins (shooktwins.com) are not your average folk duo. The sisters, Laurie and Katelyn, have some tricks up their sleeves. You wouldn't expect a small-town girl from North Idaho (Sandpoint) to drop a beatbox in the middle of a song. Katelyn plays the guitar, glockenspiel and mandolin, sings opera into a telephone and bocks like a chicken. Laurie plays wah-wah banjo and loops various melodies and beats to make it sound like more than just two identical twin sisters. Together they sing in twin harmony, which is a whole different experience from non-twin harmony.
Shook Twins' sound is sculpted from the artists who inspired them most: The Beatles, Ani DiFranco, Joni Mitchell, Feist and Bjork. They bring an exciting, lighthearted energy to the stage wherever they play, and have performed with artists such as Ryan Adams, Mason Jennings, Michelle Shocked, JJ Grey and Mofro, Darol Anger, BoDeans, Elephant Revival, The Head and The Heart and many more.
Shakin' Not Stirred (shakintheband.com) is a Boise-based Americana band that delivers a tasty concoction of swing, jazz, folk and soulful homegrown tunes with three-part harmonies, accompanied by guitars, bass and mandolin. In one moment, Shakin' Not Stirred energizes a room with a driving force, and in the next the quartet quenches with an elixir of a mid-life cocktail - going down smooth but delivering a wallop!
Shakin' Not Stirred has performed with Carrie Rodriguez, David Grisman, Bearfoot and several other talented musicians. In 2010, the band headlined the Governor's Arts Awards and shared the stage with Curtis Stigers and others at the fifth annual Xtreme Holiday Xtravaganza.

ABOUT THE LINEN BUILDING: Built in 1910 and originally known as the American Laundry Building, the Linen Building Event Center has been transformed into an architecturally unique special events center. The two-story facility houses three distinct music venues: a 350-capacity concert hall in a retrofitted warehouse space; an intimate, 150-capacity upstairs performance space housed in an art gallery; and a 1,500-capacity open-air performance space in the epicenter of Downtown Boise's Linen District.
