Indie-folk cellist and vocalist performance by Ollella

7pm-8pm, 9/03

Performance @ Bad Omen Bar & Lounge

I’m a solo cellist, vocalist, and songwriter who performs under the moniker Ollella. You can find info about my music at and listen on spotify here:

Ollella’s career as a musician started young, when she sang before she could talk. Trained as a classical cellist, she blends her technical background with authoritative vocals, live-looping, and improvisation.

Her playing has been featured on radio stations, in films screened at film festivals (Sundance, Aspen, Newport Beach), and on recordings with other artists, including Grammy-winning artist Peter Kater. She’s drawn to music because it unlocks a particularly organic flavor of humanity – one that fits the type of world she believes in.

Photography allowed? Yes – no restrictions. I’d love copies of any photos taken and if sharing on social media, please tag @ollellamusic.

COVID-19 Precautions: Signs will be set up asking folks to wear their masks as they listen.

Run! Jump! Duck! Welcome to Optical Course, the greatest, and most difficult, laser obstacle course you’ve ever seen. Brought to you by Jalove, a thirteen-year-old life-long burner, and Nacho Bracken, her father. This narrow, 3.3-foot-wide, 32-foot-long pathway is packed with lasers… break even one beam, and you will face excruciating pain as you’ve never felt before… Just kidding. At least two modes of play: Cowardly (a.k.a. Easy) and Doomed (a.k.a. Hard). You MIGHT survive Cowardly mode but your victory will be tainted by your unwillingness to play the REAL way. The real way is, well, to put it in a word, impossible. The Star of Death, climax of Optical Course, will surely fell you. But good luck. This is Optical Course, and you are doomed to fail.

Ritual for Renewal: Rise from the Ashes

Aug 29 2-7pm; Aug 31 6-7pm; Sept 3 6-7 pm; Sept 4 10 am-7 pm; Sept 5 10 am -7 pm

WestCrest Park, Seattle

Birds create a nest out of the blowdown of storms – they use what is broken to create space for something new to come into being. Engage with a 4-ft wide “fiery” charred nest filled with ashes, to acknowledge the raging fires, in the forests, and in our hearts. The loss can be overwhelming, but this piece offers you a moment to be with the grief in community. To help you move beyond what is broken, the nest creates space for something new to emerge. You are invited to explore this Question: What is it within me/ within us, that can rise like the Phoenix out of the ashes? As you write the answer on a piece of colored paper, you are reminded that by each of us rising to the occasion and offering our gifts, we can journey together toward wholeness.

Photography allowed? Yes

COVID saftey measures: I will be masked. I will provide hand sanitizer. One person at a time at the nest and the extra space is for people to be distanced while writing their intention/vision. I can wipe the pens and clipboard down after each use.
