SWEET RIVER BAKERY
Pateros is home to the wonderful Sweet River Bakery, where the wafting air is full of delicious temptations. The bakery is also known as a great, relaxed place to enjoy the fresh made food all while taking in one of the many summer music acts that literally set up in the back yard.
Visiting the bakery for the first time is Bellingham based indie rock band Birch Riley. Lead singer and guitarist Wes Hlebichuk, guitarist & violin player (among other things) Shawn Thompson, bass player Phil Calvert and drummer Rick Sloot move from hard and/or extended prog rock themes to modern or indie rock originals. The band has created a few limited releases, but are more known for their edgy rock as well as moody live performances.
The band has a catalogue of originals written over a decade including a new collection of songs that will be performed a the show. In the new category is a single released recently through Artist band site CD Baby. The single, In Disguise, is one part of a story line featuring a working man facing an uncertain and interstellar future. The complete album is being released a bit at a time through CD Baby.
