Flower Power & Acustica!

Posted by OCVA / May 17, 2014

Time to get your groove on,  your “Bell Bottoms” out and be ready to rock the night away Saturday May 17th 8pm to 10pm with “Acústica World Music” at the Astor Street Opry Company’s “KICK OFF” party to celebrate the 30th Anniversary Season of SHANGHAIED IN ASTORIA!

That’s right! “Shanghaied In Astoria” turns thirty years old this summer! So in honor of the old saying “Never Trust anyone Over Thirty” ASOC is having a blow out party to kick off what will be a very memorable season for the longest running Musical Melodrama west of the Rockies!

It’s only $five dollars at the door (18 and old only please!) and will feature the local hip and groovy band “Acústica World Music”. This “Flower Power” party is guaranteed to be a fun night full of dancing and memories, including on display “Shanghaied” memory boards, photo albums and scrap books from the past thirty years to reminisce and enjoy!

The Astoria-based band, “Acústica” features multi-lingual vocalist, Dolores Villareal and band members John Orr on guitar and harmony vocals, Dave Ambrose on upright bass and Brigido Eduardo on Latin percussion.  But for this one special night this amazing vintage band will channel the era where Jefferson Airplane ruled and Janis Joplin was a rising star as they feature songs such as White Rabbit, She’s Not There, White Bird and California Dreamin’ for your listening and dancing pleasure to an eclectic mix of rhythms with a groovy out –of-sight live performance that will make you want to get up shake your booty!

So grab your “Old Lady” and dig out your favorite 1960’s duds (we know you still have em), cause you may even win a prize for “Best Dude or Chick” or “Couple”. Or maybe run into some of your old pals form the “Shanghaied” days! You don’t miss out on this cool event to kick off the 2014 3oth Anniversary Celebration for “Shanghaied In Astoria!”
