ROCK N ROLL BINGO

THURSDAYS // 7PM // 21+ - 
This week we are doing an extended version for late-comers by adding an extra round! Grab your friends and have FUN helping raise FUNds for great local nonprofits with a night of Rock 'n' Roll Bingo, Beer, and Booze!

Four fun-filled 40 minute sessions of rock and roll bingo benefiting local nonprofits and charitable organizations every Thursday night in the Williwaw Social Hall throughout the winter. Bring your pals, your dauber, and your lucky troll because in addition to raising funds for local nonprofits/charities we've got some killer prizes* from righteous local shops and restaurants you're going to want to win!

Here's how it works: Instead of numbers being called out in a normal game of bingo, we play 15-20 second bursts of songs from the past and present. The numbers on the bingo cards have also been replaced with artists and song names. So with your bingo card in hand and your dauber on standby, listen out for the songs being played and mark them off as you would a normal game of bingo.

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO PLAY OR TO POTENTIALLY WIN A PRIZE -- there is a SUGGESTED DONATION of $6 to play -- trust us when we say you risk being openly mocked if you show up to play at a charity event with alligator arms! 

100% of donations are shared evenly between three local nonprofit organizations of the week. *There are no cash prizes like you play for at a licensed bingo hall playing regular bingo - this is not real bingo.

This week's local nonprofits:

Special Olympics Alaska, Habitat for Humanity - Anchorage and American Red Cross of Alaska - helping raise money for several local families that were affected by fires this month.

21+ only with valid I.D.

HEAD FOR THE HILLS

MARCH 24TH // 8PM // 21+ // $10

Presented by Salmonfest and Hatcher Pass Discovery: Colorado Bluegrass quartet, Head for the Hills, performs in Anchorage, AK at Williwaw on March 24th!

Head for the Hills has a simple but continuing dilemma they can’t seem to resolve. Specialists have been hired to no avail and the predicament persists: how does one describe the multifarious music of Head for the Hills? Among the top contenders are catchy turns of phrase like post-bluegrass, progressive string music, modern acoustic noir, and bluegrass bricolage. “On top of modern string music,” (Bluegrass Today), “Cutting edge” (Drew Emmitt) or “Best in Colorado Bluegrass” (Westword Magazine Readers Poll)—those are up there too. Strip away the artful descriptors and you have a forward thinking group of {mostly} acoustic musicians drawing on eclectic influences, tastes and styles. They didn’t grow up immersed in bluegrass music but came to it later in life, with each other. The result is a sound based in bluegrass that reaches into indie rock, jazz, hip hop, world and folk to stitch together fresh songs that bridge the divide between past and future acoustic music.
