Cousin Boneless is an eight-piece street-folk band with a dark underbelly that thrives on busking on street corners and taking its music out as a mobile freak show — a roaming celebration of the absurd and otherworldly..."

- Pittsburgh City Paper

The Starling, in our continuing quest to ferret out new music of all genres, is excited to welcome Cousin Boneless to the bar on Tuesday, August 1st, from 8:00 til 11:00. In the time-honored tradition of all great bands, the eight members of Cousin Boneless are traveling cross-country via van on their summer tour (which should make them particularly suited to negotiating our tiny stage). This is the first in our "New-To-Town" series of shows, showcasing out-of-town bands who have something unique to bring to the Starling and our music-fan patrons. Opening for Cousin Boneless are the Imperfections from sunny El Cerrito, California. Yet again, no cover.

First Thursday, August 3rd: Open Mic with Randy Burrows, our crack emcee. 8-11.

Seattle Times top 10 bands to see at Upstream Music Festival

"do try to see En Canto Seattle’s Brazilian group that specializes in the rhythmically galloping traditions called forró and choro, with compelling vocalist Adriana Giordano out front and accordion and flute percolating below."
-Seattle Times

"En Canto not only provides fun, engaging music, full of heart and energy, but are an absolute delight to work with. They struck just the right tone and energy for our 1,200 person gala, and we can't wait to work with them again!"

Cousin Boneless

This coming Tuesday, August 1st, starting at 8pm, the Starling begins its New-To-Town Music Series. The New-To-Town series aims to bring talented bands to our bar from all over the United States.
