Cody & The Men Your Mama Warned You About --joined by special guest Jonathan Chase filling in on bass-- rock the 7-11 across from Southridge High School all... day... long... because (probably sit down for this) neither Southridge High School nor 7-11 has EVER had any official scat-rock, since scat-rock records have been kept (c. 1894). Therefore, the powers that be have declared that the harvest, the economy, and our nation's most precious resource (The Children) receive immediate aid and intervention in the form of a 5-hour marathon gig by the Northwest's premier scat-rock ensemble. With the luxury of extra time to cook all that piping-hot music, expect extended versions, instrument switching, new songs from Steve, and deeper explorations of Cody's 400-song catalog than ever heard before.

The extravaganza begins at 11:00, when Cody & A Man Or Two Your Mama Warned You About play at the Slocum Theater, right in the heart of Vancouver's downtown farmers market. Then you take a quick break for a salmon & a microbrew somewhere of your choosing --I'm not the boss of you. Then the action resumes with a second, early evening show by the full band at 6:00 hosted by Off The Griddle at the A La Carts Food Pavillion. Are you off your rocker with this crazy energy yet, man? Now go back and read this whole blurb again in your best Christopher Walken voice. You're welcome.

Slocum House Theater (11-1)

605 Esther St Vancouver, WA 98660

I want to get serious for a moment and talk to you about a problem many of us Northwesterners are too embarassed to admit plagues us: Farmers Market Overload. Experts from the John Tesh Institute say that as the summer season drags on, as many as 1 in every 4 purveyors of Farmers Markets may be prone to the sudden onset of a severe panic attack brought on by the unfamiliar fruits and vegetables confronting them at local farm stands. But never fear; the Slocum House Theater, in the heart of Esther Shore park, has arranged for panicky shoppers to have a sensory safehouse during market hours, with music graciously donated by Cody Weathers & The Men Your Mama Warned You About. Hide Local!

UPDATE: This show was cancelled. Consult the Oracle at Delphi for further insight.

UPDATE: This show was cancelled by the government. Seriously. You write the city council and tell them to raise the scat-rock ceiling and stop all this political posturing.

It's an old fashioned guitar duel (at totally appropriate volume and intensity levels for the venue in question). Which multi-instrumentalist not originally a guitarist is, in fact, the better guitarist: Cody or Tim? At long last, aficionados of The Men Your Mama Warned You About will have their answer. Well, some --including Cody-- would argue that the answer is obviously already Tim. But Cody's no *genius* and this debate can only be settled with lightning-quick reflexes and soulful licks the likes of which Tim routinely supplies and Cody has never been observed to produce. It'll be one for the ages!

7-9PM

Elevated Coffee

5261 NE M L King Blvd Portland 97211

Cody & Evan trim it down and deliver an energetic musical rodeo of unfamiliar tunes and new takes on old favorites while Tim takes a night off for personal reflection (I believe he's spending a meditation weekend at a nearby monastery of rock and roll). No sweat, as these two percussive performers compensate with zany rhythmic interdimensionality unheard of in these realms. This kind of mind-blowery is best experienced accompanied by a bottle of beer, glass of wine, or jug of blended mocha. Fortunately, the Elevated can oblige all three options. Family-friendly and open to the entire public.

Block House Cafe

Some days, you eat the burger. Other days, the burger eats you. And then there are the days where the burger goes all Keyser Soze on you and eats you, your family, everyone who owes you money, everyone who ever did business with you, your french fries, your will to live, and a piece of cherry pie. A. La. Mode. All I'm saying is, don't take that burger lightly. Don't turn your back on it or give it your PIN or anything.

Flip Side (21+) $4

2908 SE Belmont, Portland 97214

Cody & The Men Your Mama Warned You About flip the rock switch and peel your faces clean off with their amazing improvisational energy. Evan Whitacre breaks out his drumset, which emits a top secret highly-facepeeling radiation that may or may not come from Area 51! Tim Krajcar goes to Defcon 8, which is more Defcon than even the United States Government can handle! Cody sits comfortably on a stool, but is nonetheless QUITE INTENSE as he sings his uniquely-feral scat-rock singsongs. This confluence of rock and roll hysteria is not to be missed, except by the timid or people who are particularly attached to their faces. Reconstructive surgeons will be on hand to assist with re-facing after the set. After you sign a waiver promising not to sue the band for rocking your universe so hard, you will receive a special awesome giveaway prize. Also on the bill: Farethewell and the Foolhardy & Stanley Jay Tucker.

Cody & The Men Your Mama Warned You About kick it up a notch in this full-band 45-minute set, and then Evan gets a glazed, berserk look in his eye and chants, "More notches! More notches!" The waitress brings him nachos, but he won't be satisfied with that. No, he won't be satisfied until your booty is sore from overshaking. He's like that, see.

GIG Monday December 28th, 2009: 8:30-10:30PM

The Goodfoot Sonic Forum (21+)

2845 SE Stark, Portland 97214

We don't normally plug open stage appearances, but this one will be special. If you've been digging recent video evidence of what that Evan Whitacre guy can do with just brushes and a djembe, you will be beside yourself to see him play the real McCoy sitting slot in a full kit. It turns Tim into Teen Wolf --I won't say it twice. You might have to inquire after his instrument! Cody & The Men Your Mama Warned You About are slated to play 20 minutes in the early bracket (8:30-10:30). This show is 21+ because those beats are too flat-out *nasty* for impressionable minors. $1 cover.

Division Farmers' Market Holiday Bazaar (NEW TIME & DATE)

4725 SE Division St, Portland 97206

This would be a good time for Improv Everywhere (tm) to suddenly show up and give me the gig of a lifetime. And a space heater. Cody performs a solo acoustic set while you shop for last-minute stocking stuffers.... wait.... what's this? A $5 download card for Least Significant Failures?! That fits perfectly inside a stocking! It's a holiday miracle!!

GIG Saturday December 19th, 2009: 7-9PM

Elevated Coffee

5261 NE M L King Blvd Portland 97211

Climb aboard Cody's zany futuristic shiny mylar balloon and get yourself some attention through inappropriate *elevation*. They're scrambling helicopters as we speak.... What? Too soon? Too dated? Already? Sheesh. Whatever --rock and roll smooths all lumps.

Anyhoo, Cody and bassist Tim Krajcar *up* the stakes with some holiday tunes to *raise* your spirits. Guitar, bass, piano, and s-c-r-u-m-p-t-i-o-u-s espresso. Family-friendly (since we apparently won't have the balloon after all).

UPDATE: Cody, Tim, and Evan will be joined for a handful of tunes by Ama Bentley of Vivian's Keeper on lead guitar. Ama will also perform a short 3-song set of his own material with Cody on djembe in the middle of the evening.

Oh, Edward! Oh, Bella! Oh, Jacob! Calling all moody vampires! It'll be late, and you'll need to get together over coffee and TALK THROUGH A LOT OF COMPLICATED SUPERNATURAL FEELINGS. Let Cody be the soundtrack to your misunderstood love story. He totally glitters under certain conditions.

GIG Wednesday November 4th, 2009: 6:30-9:30PM
Capitol Coffee House

6446 SW Capitol Hwy, Portland

A truly unplugged set in the coolest room you've never been in. That's Cody, Tim, and Bill in the corner. That's you at the table, losing inhibitions. Did I mention it's happy hour and they serve wine, microbrews and delicious food? Seems like the sort of detail you might enjoy knowing.

GIG Saturday October 24th, 2009: 7-9PM

Elevated Coffee

5261 NE M L King Blvd Portland 97211

Teach your kids the value of a safe high at this early, family-friendly show. Taking set list requests for either guitar or piano. High because it's Elevated Coffee, see? What? Right, you're right. Stay away from drugs, kids. Get high on life, only life.

Update: Cody will be joined by percussionist Bill McDonald --whose drum isn't really metal as previously reported (but who's to say his attitude isn't?)-- and bassist Tim Krajcar for the entire 2-hour set. Cody waxes in eerily similar fashion, "he's like the Larry Elwood of Portland --unflappable, solid, roll-with-the-punches groove machine. Plus his drum really is made of metal. Wait? What? It's not? Who keeps telling me that?"

From Portland, take 99E to Jennings, east on Jennings past Oatfield, turn right (south) on Valley View Road, two blocks down and there you go --at Nick Shannon Memorial park. Kid-friendly event features hot dogs, playground, sandbox, activities, the aforementioned under-defended fire truck, and many many more diversions to keep your mind off of all that pesky acoustic scat-rock over there under the tree. Donations to the cause welcome.
UPDATE: Cody will be joined by percussionist Bill McDonald (of Portland's Budget Airlines) for the duration of his set. Cody waxes, "he's like the Derek Sanchez of Portland --unflappable, solid, no-rehearsal-necessary groove machine. Plus his drum is made of metal."
