Grangers bring local music to Astoria!

From the Wahkiakum Eagle

“A Wahkiakum band, Giants in the Trees, has a show coming up at the Liberty Theatre in Astoria. The concert is scheduled for 7:30 p.m., on December 30. Tickets are $20 and are available at https://libertyastoria.showare.com. An Astoria band, Brian Bovenizer and New Old Stock, will be opening the show.

Giants in the Trees is comprised of Wahkiakum residents, including Erik Friend on drums, Krist Novoselic on bass, Ray Prestegard on guitar, and vocalist Jillian Raye. The band has been getting some attention this year, including write ups in Rolling Stone and Spin magazines.

The four recently released a self-titled album with 12 original songs.”s_topTEMP900x420-5655

Christmas Party

From the Wahkiakum Eagle: ” Grays River Grange #124 held their annual Christmas potluck with caroling, gift exchanges, numerous raffle drawings, and a visit from Santa. The food was sensational as well with a large variety of desserts.

Grange Master Krist Novoselic was a great host who kept the evening very lively. Anyone interested in the Grange activities, membership, or just has questions can call the Grange at 360-465-2268.”
