JOEL RL PHELPS
----------------------
Joel RL Phelps currently resides in Vancouver, BC. He was a founding member of Silkworm, and he currently plays with the Downer Trio. This fall, Phelps is set to record new material for the first time since Customs (2004). I have been a huge fan of this man's special songs and special voice for 20 years or longer. To have him play the Interurban is a thrill and an honour.

ZEBRA HUNT
---------------------
Featuring Robert and Mitch of Treasure State, Zebra Hunt are a new Seattle trio influenced by the likes of Feelies, The Clean, & Thee Oh Sees. There is a lot to be said for good taste. Robert is also a long time member of JRLP's band the Downer Trio. Fingers crossed for an appearance by them as well.
