Continuing it’s four year tradition, Lushy will be performing a Christmas show at the Seattle landmark, Andy’s Diner, on the evening of Saturday, January 17th in the SODO district, intoxicating the walls of the historic rail-car diner with its unique blend of bossa-beats, tiki-tones, and alterna-pop. However this year, though the location is the same, the business name, some exterior and interior physical aesthetics, and the cuisine have changed: Andy’s Diner is now The Orient Express.
Lushy will be performing in an unearthed upstairs section called the BOOM BOOMROOM, which will be equipped with a mini-bar and bartender. A DJ will be keeping the action going in the main bar.
The Orient Express has agreed to keep the kitchen open ’til midnight, serving Chinese and Thai dishes.
And also keeping with tradition, this show is FREE! Lushy’s Christmas gift to you! Two sets are guaranteed, but there’s chat about possibly three. And yes, some Christmas songs will be performed — , ‘Snowflake Surprise’, ‘Heat Miser’, etc.
Lushy. Cocktails. Rail-Cars. Chinese and Thai food. What’s not to love?
It’s been an exciting year… Bumbershoot, Berlin, Barack Obama and all the places, shows and parties in between.
Thanks for listening. We mean it!
The Orient Express (Andy’s Diner) in The Boom Boom Room!

We were pretty much playing in the walkway of the German Chancellery.Quite amazing, the equivalent to playing on the lawn at the White House but I don’t believe this could ever happen at the White House…remember they sell beer, wine, cocktails and bockwurst…even in the walkway of the German Chancellery!The House of Culture is located in the former House of Commons whose next-door neighbor is the German Chancellery.Amazing Berlin live and let live they seem to say.
After the show we were whisked away on a 90 minute open air party boat ride up the Spree (which at night, the view can look like scenes from Blade Runner) to an after party at popdeurope festival where Marseilles band Massilia Sound System was performing. And later, we visited several bars and clubs in the cool and colorful Kreuzburg neighborhood dancing all the way. The birds were chirping and the sun was coming up as we finally made our way back to our hotel in Tiergarten.
The crowd was wonderful our opening band Coconami was so soothing with it’s two ukuleles, it was a pleasure to see Don Tiki, Waitiki, Latin Lovers and I Belli Waikiki. The Wassermusik festival staff…Gabrielle, Corrina, our sweet driver Simone, the sound crew–all excellent. Cheers!
