KETR-FM 88.9, 1500 Education Drive, Commerce

With the lofty mandate to curate the culture of Texas music, Notably Texan host Matt Meinke scours the state's singers and songwriters, stars or not, and hand-selects the purest cuts of well-marbled entertainment for your daily listening pleasure. The tempo, the style, the instrumentation, the genre - it doesn't matter. The rules are simple - the songs need to have a Texas connection. Rock, rap, country, reggae, electronica, dub step, house, R&B - If the music helps to build an audio tapestry worthy of the Lone Star State, it's got a shot on Notably Texan.

$5-15 sliding scale ($5 increments)

Discussion Following the screening will be a Q&A with filmmakers and panel discussion with Vanetta Molson-Turner, Youlanda Givens, Winona Hollins Hauge.

About Frances Dixon, mother of the founders of the Seattle Black Panthers for Self Defense (SBPP), got phone calls saying, Were gonna kill your son. She replied, You go ahead and try it.

Vanetta Molson-Turner stepped over combat sandbags at the SBPP office to arrange for supplies for the first free clinic.

Phyllis Noble Mobley joined the party at the age of 15. She and others like Youlanda Givens and Winona Hollins Hauge sold Black Panther newspapers and collected donations to run breakfast programs to feed children before school. They studied the BPP teachings and stood strong as Black Women for the rest of their lives.

This series of 5 short documentaries shares their individual stories in varied Seattle settings significant to the SBPP, featuring an original score by SassyBlack.

The Seattle chapter of the BPP was the first chapter created outside of California. The first chief of the FBI, J. Edgar Hoover, labeled them as one of the three most dangerous chapters outside of Oakland. The women as keepers of the dream worked alongside the men in the office, implemented free community programs that still exist today like the Carolyn Downs Community Clinic and free breakfasts before disbanding nearly four decades ago.

Paula Boggs Band

Secret Location Burnside District, Portland, OR

A Sofar will typically feature three acts, with no opener or headliner. Each lineup is carefully curated to give audiences a diverse show and artists equal attention. We request that guests arrive on time for the first act and stay through the entirety of the show. During the sets, we ask guests to refrain from talking or texting.

This veteran Americana act boasts a range of influences from classic — James McMurtry and Bruce Springsteen — to more contemporary — the Drive-By Truckers. The group describes itself as “soulgrass.” An unfamiliar tag, sure, but not to be dismissed lightly in this age of microgenres.”

Current San Antonio

We’re thrilled our songs are now featured in three movies — “We All Fall Down” in upcoming indie film “Life on the Rocks,” Edith’s Coming Home” in newly released documentary “In Our Right Mind” highlighting Alzheimer’s and dementia within the African American community and “Benediction” appearing in soon to be screened documentary “Keepers of the Dream” — about Seattle chapter women Black Panthers.
