Drawing on the seasonal tradition of eerie haunted houses, and the sometimes bleak and uncanny experience of modern real estate acquisition, Promised Estates takes participants into a disconcerting near-future where luxury condominiums have become level three human facilities, and clean water is a prized commodity. Rather than the ghosts and skeletons of the past, Promised Estates is erecting the horrors of the future. Promised Estates runs from Thursday, October 25 to Sunday, October 28. Guests can reserve a time for their tour online, or sign up for the exclusive VIP experience offering an intimate sensory journey, which can only be described as “transformative.” Waiver required.

Frankie Boots | Joshua James Jackson
Sunday, October 28. Bar Redux. 9PM-11PM. FREE.
Frankie Boots is an award winning singer/songwriter with a penchant for painting vivid images of late nights, lost love, and the grittier side of life. Whether it be country, rock, blues, gospel, bluegrass, or any other true form of great American music, Boots throws it all into the recipe for a dish that’s always served hot. After honing his skills and earning a devoted fan base up and down the West Coast, in 2016 the California native packed it all up and headed down to New Orleans for fresh inspiration and Southern horizons. His captivating live performances and magnetic songs earned him the North Bay Bohemian’s award for best Country/Americana act in the Bay Area two years in a row and his full ensemble was written in as the best overall band for 2016 by their readership. Joshua James Jackson has had just about every musical role, from trumpet in an orchestra to rock n roll guitarist, bluegrass bassist to live sampling Dr. Phil on a handheld tv in a funk band, and everything in between. His songs reflect a diverse set of influence, and a reverence for the traveling troubadour’s tradition, and his shows bring fitful joy and painful nostalgia, leaving high fives and satisfaction in their wake.
