ENTERTAINMENT BRIEFS: Art Rock set for tonight in Port Angeles … and other items

Entertainment news briefs for the North Olympic Peninsula.

PORT ANGELES — Bar N9NE, 229 W. First St., will host 2nd Friday Art Rock, featuring the Malcolm Clark Trio and Port Angeles artist Sarah Tucker, at 9 tonight.

A $3 cover charge will help support the musicians and artist.

“Sarah divides her time between acting in local plays, creating marine debris sculptures and volunteering for just about everything possible,” said Dan Lieberman, event spokesperson.

“Her products from past 2FAR artist-in-residence events have adorned walls, CD covers and more. At 2FAR this month, she will be doing paint on paper.”

Meanwhile, the Malcolm Clark Trio “brings high quality blues music to the 2FAR stage,” Lieberman said.

“Their playing is loose, spontaneous and understated, which makes for great dancing and listening. Front man Malcolm Clark plays guitar and sings and is backed by uber-musicians Randy Bennett on bass and Harry Bidasha on drums. This band has built an extensive following during their time hosting the Thursday night blues jam at the Dam Bar.”
