Storm Large performs at Mondavi
As her name portends, Storm Large is every bit the natural phenomenon. After shooting to prominence on Rock Star: Supernova, Large has built a career that includes regular gigs with Pink Martini and the Oregon Symphony as well as her own one-woman shows Crazy Enough and Cabaret. With her longtime band, Le Bonheur, Large leads a bold show that includes the Great American Songbook, Broadway standards, rock anthems and some of her own original songs—alongside some unfiltered stage banter that will entertain (and perhaps elicit) a few blushes along the way.
Parental Advisory: Storm’s show includes mature subject matter and profanity.
Get more information and tickets for the Friday, 8 p.m. show at the Mondavi.

Coming up: 'Two Pints'
Wednesday through Sunday next week will feature Abbey Theatre’s “Two Pints” by Roddy Doyle.
Two men meet for a pint. They talk about their Da’s, death, Nigella, North Korea, the afterlife. This is the making of Roddy Doyle’s hilarious and provocative Two Pints, which started as a series of conversations on Facebook and has since evolved into an immersive play from Abbey Theatre of Dublin and coming to Vanderhoef Studio Theatre Pub. Two Pints exemplifies the company’s vision to imaginatively engage its audiences to become part of the conversation, experienced here through interactions with these fascinating Dubliners. Pull up a stool and listen in as two men, over a couple of pints, chew the fat and set the world to rights.
This event includes language that some patrons may find offensive. Ticket information here.
