Ottmar Liebert, renowned nouveau flamenco guitarist, and his band Luna Negra perform live at the Triple Door in Seattle. The five-time Grammy nominee has released 25 albums, earning 38 gold and platinum certifications in the USA, plus more awards around the world. His debut, 1990's double-platinum Nouveau Flamenco, is one of the best-selling guitar albums ever -- pretty impressive for a man who, up to that point, had worked a series of odd jobs, including dishwasher, bike messenger, truck driver and bank teller. Don't miss his yearly stop at the Triple Door. Learn More

“Ms. Wells’ latest album, _The Symphonies: Dreams Memories & Parties _(creative control), is a warm, intriguing slice of avant-garde pop, and on stage she’s a delight.”—Wall Street Journal
“On her album The Symphonies: Dreams Memories and Parties, from 2008, the multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Wells layered her elfin voice over spectral string arrangements and brushstroked hip-hop percussion. The ten songs were symphonies only in the broadest sense of the term: the album is a highly theatrical labyrinth of rap, gothic folk, classical, and electronica songs.” —_The New Yorker _
“Emily Wells is a classical phenom with a cutting ear.” —Village Voice
“Layering eerie strings, bleeping synths, and electronic beats under Biggie’s rags-to-riches lyrics, she sings and raps like a feral, streetwise Nina Simone.” —Spin
