Another McMannamin’s favorite tourist destinations, the White Eagle is more of a hostel than it is a hotel. It is located in one of the micro-brewery destination neighborhoods of Portland, Eliot in North Portland with a style of a hotel in glamour of rock n’ roll themed lodging and saloon. The building dates back to 1905. The basic rooms are located above the pub and individually furnished, has free wi-fi, and wash basins. Some rooms have bun beds. There is no air conditioning and the bathrooms are shared between rooms. The bar has a artsy feel, with rock-n-roll and odd sideshow decor, with a beer garden and nightly live music. The establishment lacks in parking, although it has a very small lot. While we have yet had a chance to lodge in this hotel, we did eat and drink at the pub in the beer garden. Service was friendly, albeit moderate in speed. It was overall a good experience. Rating: 3 stars out of 5

Big John Bates & the Voodoo Dolls (4/22/09 – Denver)


Big John Bates

From Vancouver, British Columbia

~ BANGTOWN 2009 WORLD TOUR ~
Performance in Denver, Colorado at the Three Kings Tavern * 60 S Broadway * Denver, CO 80209 *

Night two and the finale of Big John Bates and the Voodoo Dolls in Colorado on tour this year with their 4th CD – 2009 release of “Bangtown”. Whizzing through their six weeks & 34 shows across the USA, as I write this review they are flying to Europe for five weeks through Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria & Hungary. Last night’s gig in Pueblo, Colorado was spectacular, and the Denver performance Stunning. Next for them off to Salt Lake City tomorrow. Its a great loss with the closure of this tour as the amazing sCare-oline will be parting from the band and becoming replaced by Brandy Battery. One of my most favorite bands of their genre, Big John Bates and the Voodoo Dolls are NOT to be missed for any reason – those who do miss out on a truly enchanting and risque life experience. Following the Voodoo Organist in Denver at the incredible Three Kings Tavern, the band and burlesque team enchanted their audience and threw them into a frenzy. Big John Bates is a merge of Rock-a-billy, Psycho-billy, dark rock n’ roll, with a twist of sounds like “The Stray Cats” and “White Stripes” with a sense of rhythm you can really dance to. Accompanied by the beautiful troupe of Voodoo dolls, with Whiskey Rose and Tristan who mesmerized the stage after every other song with a tantalizing burlesque performance – naughty nurses pouring “their medicine” to unsuspecting captives from the audience, tribal tiki dancing, and costuming. Unfortunately Three Kings did not permit the fire spinning and quenched their flames. Regardless, the tour definitely lives to its Name of “Bangtown”. Big John Bates and the Voodoo Dolls are world-famous with great popularity in the entertainment industry. In 2002 they performed at the Winter Olympics and was picked up by El Toro Records in Spain, also headlined the Mandalay Bay House of Blues in Las Vegas for its infamous 2002 Hellbilly Halloween; in 2005 they started by receiving first Canadian Jagermeister band endorsement and around the same tour year signed with Germany’s Wolverine Records, and in 2006 they saw their music and performance headlined in Vancouver’s International Burlesque Festival & the Voodoo Ball; and their music played on season 3, episode 1 of Battlestar Galactica; andfeatured at the 2008 Ink & Iron Festival in California with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Mad Sin & Jr. Brown. Big John as the singer, guitarist, and lead; sCaroline spanking the bass with outrageous twists, turns, and moves in her playing; in addition, adding in spectacular bellydancing performances; and the new addition JT “Massacre” Brander on the drums banging up the beats. Little Miss Risk and Whiskey Rose charmed all … with dance, tease, and trance. If BJB and the Voodoo Dolls come to your town, it would be a big mistake to miss them … so step right up and “Take your Medicine” at a bar near you celebrating the “Bangtown” that they incite. Tour dates can be found at their web site. They have 4 CD’s and 1 DVD available now as well as some incredibly cool T-shirts and gifts. Highly recommended! Rating: 5+ stars out of 5.
