Help us help Moayed's family! Moayed is one of the Pale Fire Brewers (our soccer team), works at a local school, and his mother and sisters are recovering from a recent house fire in Saudi Arabia. We're trying to raise some money to send to them because he can't physically be there to help. Here's the gofundme (www.gofundme.com/f/r4uuv9-my-family?member=24523665) if you'd like to donate directly.

We wanted to help so...

Drink some BEER! Pale Fire will donate $1 from each pint sold and bartenders are donating all tips collected during the event.

Pay for a spin on the PRIZE WHEEL! With each spin you can win a vote, prize, free spin, or a high five. Other members of the soccer team have volunteered to do certain things (like get a tattoo!) if they get the most votes. And you can bet that we'll hold them to it!

Come HUNGRY! We'll have tacos available for a suggested donation. Choose between smoked pork belly or sweet potato and black bean fillings.

Play SINGO! It's not part of the fundraiser, but it's something fun to do while you drink beer and eat tacos. This weekly musical bingo is from 7-9pm and includes its own prizes.

Stay LATE! We're open until 11pm with live music from BODY DRAMA and Onokio starting just after 9pm.

Thanks for supporting someone that we care about!

About Maya di Vitry
Pennsylvania-raised and Tennessee-based, Maya first traveled and performed as a fiddling street musician, and then in bars, theaters, and on festival stages as a founding member of The Stray Birds. In 2019, she released her critically-acclaimed solo debut Adaptations, produced by Dan Knobler, and has since emerged as a prolific solo artist. NPR calls Maya’s music “the perfect soundtrack for uncorking that emotion and defiantly loving life again”. Her musical heart is rooted in her love of songwriters like John Prine and Townes Van Zandt, emotive vocalists like Nina Simone and Bonnie Raitt, and the traditions of Appalachian string band music.

The title of Maya de Vitry’s 3rd solo album is a reference to “ultraviolet” light—a frequency which, while visible to creatures like butterflies and bees, lies beyond any human sense. It’s a reminder of a simple human limitation and an inspiring concept for an artist who feels most at home in the woods or the garden, observing the non-human living world and then emerging with vibrant and vital songs on the human condition—songs that, as No Depression says, “open windows that give us insights into the ambiguities of our lives”.

Produced by Maya de Vitry and Ethan Jodziewicz and recorded in a basement home studio, Violet Light also became a way to reach for human connection. The 11 new songs each feature an entirely unique band - a true collaborative feat in a time of unusual isolation. Many local friends dropped by the basement to play or sing, while others sent in piano or harmonica from across the country or across the ocean. The gorgeously varied arrangements include the dynamic playing of instrumentalists Paul Horton (Alabama Shakes), Chris Eldridge (Punch Brothers), and Thor Davidsson (KALEO), as well as a stellar cast of harmony vocalists including Kaia Kater, Ric Robertson, Shelby Means, and Joel Timmons.

Maya enjoys playing live around town in her home base of Nashville, TN, playing shows around the country with her band, and also traveling as a solo singer-songwriter, supporting artists like Aoife O’Donovan, John Craigie, and Fruition. At once reflective and urgent, and as intimate as it is expansive, Maya’s music is an open-hearted invitation to explore the tensions between the visible and the imagined, between love and control, and our unrelenting human desire to belong—to a home, to an environment, and to each other.

The Wild Hymns at Pale Fire Brewing Co.
Friday, March 3rd
7PM
FREE!
>>>

A beautiful synthesis of neo-folk, pop, and Americana with elements of jazz, tinges of psychedelia and a little bit of mellow rock and roll, The Wild Hymns are the original songs of singer/songwriter Megan Woodland Hewitt (née Donley) and her band with her husband, guitarist Jeff Hewitt.

There is a tender sweetness to their sound as well as depth, mystery and an other-worldly quality. The music and lyrics of The Wild Hymns are greatly influenced by human relationship, emotion, nature, and mysticism; they are reclaiming the word “hymn” as a song of praise to the natural world, the raw and wild human spirit, and universal/cosmic love.

The Wild Hymns have performed regionally at venues such as Bethlehem Musikfest, Kable House Presents in York, Pa and Long's Park Ampitheater in Lancaster, Pa and their music can can be heard on WXPN Philadelphia's "Sleepy Hollow" and "Folk Show". They are working on their 4th album of original music to be released in 2022.
