ABOUT THE ACTS:
SARAH DONNER: Sarah Donner is an indie folkpop songstress who has embraced her inner catlady. She works the stage with a powerful vocals, punchy guitar, and a candid stage presence. That Is A Pegasus (2014) is her fifth studio album released on her label CatLady Records. The new songs teeter back and forth between playful, rock, nerd core, and ballads, all tied together with bright melodies and driving, energetic instrumentals.
The "Sarah Donner and the Sleepy Kitten" video and "The Motherf**cking Pterodactyl Song" which was co-written with The Oatmeal catapulted Sarah into weblebrity status with over two million views on YouTube alone. Her music has been featured on Conan O'Brien's blog, NPR, Showtime, and CBS News.
She is a graduate of Westminster Choir College. After stretching her legs with musical theatre, she picked up a guitar, abandoned her classical roots, and started rocking out (with fantastic breath support). Sarah Donner's cold New England heart was transplanted to New Jersey where she fosters kittens when not on tour.

She's the associate producer of the Portland Mercury's live late night show, Late Night Action, as well as a joke writer for both Late Night Action and the online humor magazine, The Higgs Weldon.

She has performed in the All Jane No Dick Festival, the New York Funny Songs Fest and the Pacific Northwest Women's Comedy Festival.

Her comedy has been described as clever, unique, idiosyncratic, and exuberant. Seattle City Arts Magazine called her a "comedy wizard" and Seattle Stranger Newspaper described her as an "adorable wunderkind" and she describes herself as "running away from this question to hide under the desk right now."
