Featuring music from Owcharuk’s 2011 -2012 Tune A Day Project, instrumental music influenced by rock, classical, and jazz. Ply’s set will be followed by guitarist ARI JOSHUA.

The Frank Agency has teamed up with the Royal Room to highlight Frank artists & affiliates in a monthly sonic presentation. A split bill the last Monday of each month features a range of projects, artists, ideas & perspectives. Taking advantage of the “project room” nature of Columbia City’s new space, you can expect that the sounds will be ever changing monthly, while the level of quality, expressiveness, and exploration stays invigorating. Listen, talk with artists, commune…Frankly Mondays, can be awesome…
