TONIGHT ONLY-10PM!-NO COVER

Tonight! Only at Gracie’s! 10pm. You do NOT want to miss this show. NO COVER.

PORTLAND BORN, DIRTY REVIVAL HAS EVOLVED FROM THE CONFINES OF A BASEMENT TO SOME OF PDX’S MOST SOUGHT AFTER STAGES. THEIR SOULFUL SOUNDS AND ENERGETIC BEATS DELIVERS AN ATMOSPHERE THAT ENRAPTURES ANY AUDIENCE.

Led by the soulful vocals of Sarah Clarke, Dirty Revival has made their mark on the Pacific Northwest music scene. The unique ensemble delivers powerful original tracks and superbly arranged classics with a resounding presence, no matter how big or small the venue.

The dynamic, seven-piece soul outfit shines on stage, and defines influences from funk- and soul-infused icons of the past. DR has shared the stages with musical heavy-hitters such as George Clinton and the Parliament-Funkadelic, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Slick Rick, Nappy Roots and Gift of Gab, and have several regional tours already under their belt.

The band will spend the rest of 2015 touring in support of their recently release debut album, the self-titled, Dirty Revival.

The release was marked by a sold-out CD release party at one of Portland’s premier venues, Mississippi Studios. Driven by the warm reception of their freshman album, Dirty Revival has the heart and mind behind the music, and the passion to share their souls.

OLD TOM GIN- It’s the cat’s meow!

Howdy, folks!

Are you a Gin person? Always wanted to be a drinker of Gin, but have been reluctant to try? Gracie’s is now offering an Old Tom Gin, made by the Ransom distillery. It is priced at $6/$9 (1oz/1.5oz).

What is Old Tom Gin? It is an older recipe for gin before the London dry gin became more popular. Referred to commonly as “the missing link” between London dry gin and the Dutch Genever. Old Tom Gin has a fuller body than the dry gin, and less intense than Genever.

Cool bar factoid: the name apparently came from places with a black cat (old Tom) painted outside of houses, or a sign in a window, which served as a symbol for a location where you could buy bootleg gin!

Here’s the fancier description:RansomGin

Ransom’s Old Tom Gin is the marriage of a base wort of malted barley and a high-proof corn spirit infused with a fairly simple potpourri of botanicals (juniper, coriander, orange, lemon, angelica root, and cardamom). The final distillation is run through an alembic pot still and then aged in wine barrels. The wood lends the gin its color and gives the gin a drier, more tannic bite.

Awesome for almost any gin drink, but especially simpler, prohibition-style gin drinks. Ask your favorite Gracie’s bartender to make you a fancy Old Tom Martini, or start slow on your newfound path to being the Gin lover you always wanted to be with an Old Tom Collins!  It’s the cat’s meow!
