Stephanie will feature stripped-down renditions of songs from her two trip-hop albums as well as songs from her band Dirty Martini (now Swan Sovereign). Over the last year, Stephanie has been busy researching for a musical she's writing and will perform some of her new tunes as well! Sharing the night with Andrew Paul Woodworth, she and her band will take the stage at 8pm. Tickets are $12 at the door.

Swan Sovereign

Stephanie is now playing drums in Swan Sovereign -her new band with Dirty Martini bandmates Lara Michell and McKinley.

Swan Sovereign is a Portland, Oregon trio with punchy, defiant pop songs and harmonies so buttery that you’ll forget to be offended by the bossy lyrics. Stephanie Schneiderman (drums) Lara Michell (guitar) and Christine McKinley (bass) are a tight, spare unit with compact songs that burst from dead quiet into tantrums and back down.

Before taking over the rhythm section and forming the power trio that became Swan Sovereign, the three were in Dirty Martini. The music of Dirty Martini was gloomy, introspective and rain-soaked, like April in Portland. Swan Sovereign is more like a dance party on a sunny day in Antarctica – bright and blinding, with snowballs flying and a bit of blood on the ice from playing too rough.

Swan Sovereign's songs about interrogation, family secrets, and organized rebellion cut clean and deep. Then they rub salt in with mean 60s girl group harmonies. It leaves a pretty pink scar.
