This Fourth of July, join us at the Pickled Fish on the top floor of the Adrift Hotel in Long Beach, Washington for a celebration of music, local food and craft drink, fireworks and friends; live music from area favorites Holiday Friends, as well as their longtime friend and collaborator Bart Budwig and his band. Doors open at 9 pm, with music from 9:30 until midnight
------- Holiday Friends Holiday Friends is an independent pop-rock band from Astoria, Oregon. They blend melodic hooks with harmonies on top of fast, pulsing percussion and aggressive bass. Their organic instruments contrast banks of electronic sounds; raw guitar work drawn in bright, synthesized relief. Founded in 2008 in Moscow, Idaho, they relocated to the Oregon Coast in 2011, self-releasing an independent LP in the spring of 2012.
Their new single, "Spirit Girl", was released on May 10th, 2014 in preparation for the fall release of their debut studio LP, Major Magic.

First, of course, is time--time to soak up life's experiences, to taste the joy and bitterness, love and longing that the world offers. Songwriters are also carved out of place. For Bart Budwig, his place is Idaho and with the release of his brilliant new album, Whisky Girl, his time is now.
Bart grew up on the Palouse, the wild, rolling hill country that describes the border between north central Idaho and eastern Washington State. Bridging the gap between the wide-open sprawl of classic Americana, the insightful observations of folk and the grit and honesty of authentic country, Whisky Girl, is both a powerful statement and a great listen.
