Theodore quickly finds himself drawn in with Samantha, the voice behind his OS1. As they start spending time together they grow closer and closer and eventually find themselves in love. Having fallen in love with his OS, Theodore finds himself dealing with feelings of both great joy and doubt. As an OS, Samantha has powerful intelligence that she uses to help Theodore in ways others hadn’t, but how does she help him deal with his inner conflict of being in love with an OS?”

***This show is 21+ only! Do not purchase tickets if you are unable to attend***
“Mr. Rogers’ sounds have long captivated the West Coast underground arts community, but now the secret is out and this pioneering producer is poised to conquer the far reaches of the dance floor with his twisted, psychedelic take on bass-heavy midtempo, and glitch-ridden breaks.
Mr. Rogers first emerged in the San Francisco underground in 2006, and caught the attention of many with his sets of 100% originally produced material. His completely unique syle has bounced crowds at numerous major music festivals world-wide, including Rainbow Serpent and Earth Frequency in Australia, Satya and Lau Lau in Israel, Shambhala, Entheos, and Astral Harvest in Canada, and up and down the U.S. west coast, including Symbiosis Gathering, Esthetic Evolution, The Bounce, Raindance, Alchemeyez, Burningman, and many more.
Following the success of multiple releases on his own label, Ooze System Recordings, and a 4 month tour across over 40 cities in North America, as well as a recent 2 month tour of Australia, Mr. Rogers has since been in the studio crafting a whole slew of new material. He is poised to launch himself even further, in late 2013, with a new EP that has hung in the top 10 of Addictech.com for 4 months, and his 3rd full length album out soon.
Digital Rust is one of the leading emerging artists in low tempo dance music, as his tracks are featured in many DJ sets, and his live performances always exceed expectations as he unloads fresh tunes on the crowd. This humble producer clearly has more potential than the vast majority of the flash in the pan, hyped up, bandwagon jumping copycats constantly flooding your ears.
Modifying the face of glitch hop and mid-tempo as we know it, Digital Rust keeps his beats funky and rolling while his signature bass rattles your sternum. His distinct style is an instant indicator of audible artistic expression, as he carves frequencies and rides the line between slamming peak time bass and heady layered glitch.” -Addictech.com
Digital Rust has played clubs and festivals along the west coast, with particularly epic performances at Burning Man, Raindance, Envision Festival and Lucidity Festival, alongside some of his favorite fellow artists like Tipper, VibeSquaD, Gladkill, Kalya Scintilla and many more. Having always leaned toward the heavier side of bass music, he has previously released music on Addictech, KWS and Kanpai Records, with notable remixes on Adapted and Simplify.”

Jeff Crosby & The Refugees at Peach Street Studios on Wednesday, March 19th at 8pm, as part of the Live From the Divide radio series.
“Idaho-born, LA-based singer-songwriter Jeff Crosby is the whole package. His guitar playing is frankly ripping, he’s got a big thoughtful voice and a great hungry band… And then there’s the songs – where Stephen Stills ala Manassas is a fair comparison in vocal timbre, guitar stylings and song writing…”

The Bozeman Film Festival presents The Great Beauty at the Emerson on Thursday, March 27th at 7:30pm (doors at 6:30pm)
Winner of the 2014 Academy Award for Best Foreign Film, La grande bellezza (The Great Beaurty) tells the story of “Journalist Jep Gambardella (the dazzling Toni Servillo, Il divo and Gomorrah) [who] has charmed and seduced his way through the lavish nightlife of Rome for decades. Since the legendary success of his one and only novel, he has been a permanent fixture in the city’s literary and social circles, but when his sixty-fifth birthday coincides with a shock from the past, Jep finds himself unexpectedly taking stock of his life, turning his cutting wit on himself and his contemporaries, and looking past the extravagant nightclubs, parties, and cafés to find Rome in all its glory: a timeless landscape of absurd, exquisite beauty.”
David Bazan at Peach Street Studios on Thursday, March 27th, as part of the Live From the Divide radio series. Show at 8pm.
“David Bazan was, for many years, the songwriter and driving force behind the acclaimed indie band Pedro the Lion, building a dedicated following and selling a couple hundred-thousand albums based in large part on his extraordinary melodic sense and erudite, theologically-themed songs. After a decade helming the project, he found himself embroiled in a major personal philosophical and spiritual cataclysm, wrapped in a growing drinking problem. Bazan got to work exorcizing both his demons and angels, ditching the Pedro moniker in favor of his given name and producing three critically-acclaimed releases; Fewer Moving Parts EP (2007), Curse Your Branches (2009) and Strange Negotiations (2011).”

Evergreen Grass Band & Kitchen Dwellers at Peach Street Studios on Tuesday, April 1st, as part of the Live From the Divide radio series. Show at 8pm.
“The seeds were sown for the EverGreen Grass Band in 2008 and cultivated throughout the fertile musical grounds of Eau Claire, WI. The six members of the band gathered their traditional bluegrass instruments and grew into one of the most sought after non-traditional bluegrass acts on the Northwood’s musical frontier. Their melodies stay with the listener and their stories and perspectives reach outside the genre to create unforgettable passages and refrains – a recipe that results in a well seasoned musical smorgasbord of Americana delights.
The Kitchen Dwellers formed three years ago below the Bridger Mountains with the sizzle of afternoon breakfast and the warmth of Irish coffee brewing in the kitchen. The boys in this band (not to be confused with boy bands) hail from all over this great country we call the United States, coming together to form the most democratic, free form sonic bliss. Combining elements of the intergalactic space travel, bluegrass, blues, psychedelic rock and roll, and picking that resembles the sound of laser beams being fired at your head, this band will leave you wanting more…”

Marshal Mclean Band with Katie Boeck at Peach Street Studios on Thursday, April 3rd, as part of the Live From the Divide radio series.
One of Spokane’s favorite songwriters, Marshall McLean manages to write songs without pretension. He sets reflective moods and backs them up with a distinctive picking style that travels seamlessly from powered lead lines to dynamic rhythm. It is in the final output, however, where the Marshall McLean Band carves its most solid niche. The method in which acoustical elements are managed through filters and amps gives forth a clean, over-driven sound that blurs the line between genres. The band is unafraid, blending these styles, taking the best of both worlds and discarding the rest.
Katie Boeck’s sound is refined, her vision clear, and her message is undeniable. Drawing from such a wide spectrum of influences from Seal to Dusty Springfield, Joni Mitchell to John Mayer, Katie’s voice transcends comparison, and her songs speak for themselves, honest and vulnerable, but lighthearted and undoubtedly listenable.
Tony Furtado at Peach Street Studios on Friday, April 4th at 8pm, as part of the Live From the Divide radio series.
Tony Furtado is an indie record label’s dream artist. He has lived primarily on the road for the last two decades. He is gregarious, engaging and entertaining, on and off stage. He’s been called a genius on banjo and slide guitar and his own creative interpretation-hybrid of Americana and indie rock is captivating. Onstage, whether playing with a band or solo, he owns the room, mixing stories of his travels with musicianship that is off the charts.

The Bozeman Film Festival presents Philomena at the Emerson on Thursday, April 10th at 7:30pm (doors at 6:30pm)
“Based on the 2009 investigative book by BBC correspondent Martin Sixsmith, The Lost Child of Philomena Lee, PHILOMENA focuses on the efforts of Philomena Lee (Dench), mother to a boy conceived out of wedlock – something her Irish-Catholic community didn’t have the highest opinion of – and given away for adoption in the United States. In following church doctrine, she was forced to sign a contract that wouldn’t allow for any sort of inquiry into the son’s whereabouts. After starting a family years later in England and, for the most part, moving on with her life, Lee meets Sixsmith (Coogan), a BBC reporter with whom she decides to discover her long-lost son”

Sam Platts at Peach Street Studios on Monday, April 18th as part of the Live from the Divide.
Coeur d’Alene’s Sam Platts and the Kootenai Three don’t give a honk or a toot about fitting into office background soundtracks. They play traditional country music anchored by Platts’ steel guitar and baritone voice. It’s the kind of music that one might sip whiskey to while leaning over the kitchen sink on a melancholy winter evening, the kind people used to dance to in country dance halls on Saturday nights…
Trinity Seely & Almeda Bradshaw at Peach Street Studios on Saturday, April 19th at 8pm, as part of the Live From the Divide radio series.
Trinity Seely’s life has taken her to many different places, and finally to the high desert plains of Wyoming where a vast sea of sagebrush and granite peaks have stolen her heart. Each of the places that she has called home has embedded in her a deep love for the Cowboy, Western, and Buckaroo lifestyle – giving her music a deep perspective and appreciation for a lifestyle that some say is a bygone era.
Though born and raised a town girl, where all she wanted was to be a cowgirl, Almeda Bradshaw spent hours riding the range of her imagination in a swing set saddle, and when tall enough, she threw a leg up on the family’s trusty propane tank and rode off into many a sunset… Almeda has written journals, poetry and songs for over forty years. Most recently, she has been putting vintage poetry to music.
Shook Twins at Peach Street Studios on Monday April 28th at 8pm, as part of the Live From the Divide radio series.
Born and raised in Sandpoint Idaho, Shook Twins are an Indie folk-pop band now hailing from coniferous forested Portland, Oregon.

Multi-instrumentalist Zach Deputy at the Filling Station on Wednesday, April 30th at 9pm.

“Montana is lucky to be home to such a broad spectrum of talented musicans, and this is especially so with multi-instrumentalist Kevin Fabozzi. Specializing in mandolin and guitar, Kevin was part of the cultural resurrection surrounding the Montana Mandolin Society in the 2000s, and can be seen on any given night playing with the best pickers and songsmiths throughout the region. Counting David Grisman, Mike Marshall, and Bill Monroe among his influences, but possessing a confident style all his own, Kevin puts on a great show everytime and is not to be missed…”

Former Black Crows front-man Chris Robinson will be rocking the Emerson with his new band, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood on Wednesday, May 14th, from :00pm – 11:00pm.
“CRB returns from gathering the ineffable with Phosphorescent Harvest, their third long playing album for Silver Arrow Records. Having first unshackled the air with Big Moon Ritual (June 1012) and the Magic Door (September 2012), the band –Robinson (Lead vocals, guitar), Neal Casal (guitar, vocals), Adam Macdougall (keys, vocals), George Sluppick (drums), and Mark Dutton (bass, vocals) -trucked the realms relentlessly, including a 118-show stretch that never failed to illuminate blank nights to just this side of clarity. Late 2013 saw the fruits of that labor forever captured in the proverbial amber by legendary tape priestess, Betty Cantor-Jackson (Grateful Dead), on the eight-sided limited-edition vinyl release Betty’s S.F. Blends Volume 1, which documented a glorious five night run at San Francisco’s famed Great American Music Hall.”

Laurie Sargent at Peach Street Studios on Saturday May 17th at 8pm, as part of the Live From the Divide radio series.
“Longtime Boston scene stalwart Laurie Sargent resurfaces after a long hiatus with a diverse, deeply satisfying solo disc. And, while the singer doesn’t have the power of her Face to Face days, she’s a better vocalist now – imbuing her finely honed lyrics with bruised wisdom… Here with “Little Dipper and the Shooting Star” she showcases may facets of her new-found stylistic wanderings, evoking mid-period Tom Waits’ complex musical dynamic, plinking out her first few notes on a borrowed mandolin, and hitting many high points along the way.”
Joel Rafael at Peach Street Studios as part of the Live From the Divide radio series on Monday, May 19th at 8pm.
“Timelessness,” says award-winning Southern California-based singer-songwriter Joel Rafael, “is a quality that you can’t quite place, but it’s about something that seems like it’s always been there, and always should be there, whether it’s an old house, or a mountain or a song.”
Rafael’s lyrical directness and honest delivery reliably elevate his art with a stripped-down blend of wisdom, realism, empathy and hope. As prominent music writer Dave Marsh once said, “the stories Joel Rafael tells, and the emotional spells his music weaves, have depth and beauty because they come from so deep in his heart, and pierce so deep into our soul”.
Whether telling his own tales or wrapping his artistry around the songs of Woody Guthrie and others, Joel Rafael mixes traditional folk idioms with contemporary ideas and sensibilities in a way that both transcends the moment and is fully present in it. Just call it timeless.
One Ton Pig at Peach Street Studios as part of the Live From the Divide radio series on Friday, May 30th at 8pm.
“Chicken Fried Prison Music. That’s what One Ton Pig is famous for: down-and-dirty outlaw country, bluegrass, and Americana…
Based in Jackson Hole, WY., home to rugged mountains, rugged people, brutal weather, stunning women, and the some of the most eccentric musicians in the world, the band writes original material dealing with love, loss, mountains, and whiskey. If you’re into Willie, Del, or Johnny Cash, you’re into the Pig!”
Eric Taylor at Peach Street Studios on Saturday, June 14th , as part of the Live From the Divide radio series.
Eric Taylor is a sage musician, a lyrical genius and a master of the guitar. If you’re familiar with the intricate Texas singer/songwriter jigsaw puzzle, you probably already know a lot about Taylor. If you’re not familiar with Taylor by name, you’ve probably heard his songs performed by people such as Nanci Griffith and Lyle Lovett. He has created a multitude of fans and devotees that are legends themselves in the singer/songwriter realm, artists who have long considered Taylor to be a teacher and a lantern bearer whose time is long overdue.
Jill Zimmerman at Peach Street Studios as part of the Live From the Divide radio series on Saturday, June 28th at 8pm.
“Have you ever heard the sun rise? Have you ever held the concept of your own life in your hand? Have you ever felt, simultaneously, the sum total of all existing happiness and the sum total of all existing sadness?
Of course not; nobody has. But we’ve come close. The evidence is in the music of one Jill Zimmerman. Her songs are real. Take an average song you hear on the radio. Strip off the layers of nonsense. Remove the unnecessary production. Get rid of the fabricated reality and insincerity laced within the words and the melody. Replace these elements with real, honest-to-goodness truth. Then add some soul. I’m not talkin’ about the musical genre. I’m talkin’ about the part of a person that makes them real…”
Tommy Emmanual at Peach Street Studios on Tuesday, June 22nd at 9pm , as part of the Live From the Divide radio series.
“Two-time Grammy nominee Tommy Emmanuel is one of Australia’s most respected musicians. With a professional career spanning five decades, Tommy has garnered hundreds of thousands of loyal fans worldwide. His unusual talent and life are common lore in Australia: born into a musical family, Tommy got his first guitar at age 4 and was taught by his mother. He quickly learned by ear, with no formal instruction, and has never read music. By age 6 he was working as a professional musician in the family band. By the age of 10, young Tommy had already played his way across Australia.
Honored by Chet Atkins with the rare title of “Certified Guitar Player” for his contribution to guitar music, Tommy Emmanuel’s message is just pure love for the music and his delight in sharing it with the world, one audience at a time.”

His fans love the honesty of his music as well as his smoky character-filled voice.

Mark Stuart at Peach Street Studios on Wednesday August 13 at 9pm, as part of the Live From the Divide radio series.

Based out of Tennessee, Stuart draws from blues, pop, country, rock, and more in his heartfelt music – with years of touring the folk/Americana circuit (playing 170 concerts a year) giving his live performances a knack for reaching out to the audience in an intimate “come in to my living room” fashion.”
