Join us for a night of music and cocktails, as we open up The Lab at Ada's for Heartbreakers: Two Seattle Crooners share songs about love of all kinds.

Sabrina plays solo folk style acoustic guitar with emotive vocals and a strong lyrical emphasis. Her songs paint vivid stories of grappling with love, transition, loss and grief. Her music is reminiscent of Big Thief and Bright Eyes and Joni Mitchell.

Axel is a singer-pianist who writes heartfelt songs for a soulful baritone. Axel’s sophisticated piano and confessional lyrics crystallize emotive jazz and pop evocative of Corinne Bailey Rae and Adele.

Both will perform songs about all types of love, for people in all stages of love and life.

Doors at 8pm, show starts at 8:30pm.

$12, tickets available online and at the door until Sold Out.
