Patrick Coman Live!

Wednesday, November 5, 2014 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm

Alex Snyder and the Sandwich Boys

Thursday, September 25, 2014 - 6:00pm to 8:30pm

"The Sandwich Boys started performing together after a music teacher suggested Ula Cafe would be the perfect laid-back environment to test their musical prowess in public. Since several months ago, the Sandwich Boys have evolved from two musicians to a collective of friends who found a common bond through music. Covers, original songs, instrumental pieces, and improvisational performances are all a part of the Sandwich Boys curriculum. In the end, it's not about how much bread you got, but the quality of what's inside."

Join us on the 25th and we're sure you'll find the Sandwich Boys both delicious and nutritious.

Open Mic Night - Totally 90's Edition

Tuesday, September 16, 2014 - 7:30pm to 10:00pm

The 90's were a special time. Clinton was in the White House, "blog" was a nonsense word, half of Ula staffers were in pre-school, and MTV actually played music videos. Music was particularly diverse then, too. Hip hop grew teeth, Seattle grunge came and went, and boy bands began hypnotizing millions of people.

What about you? Did you get jiggy wit anything? Did you go chasing waterfalls? Were you feeling like a freak on a leash? Are you STILL just a rat in a cage?? And who WILL save your soul, anyway???* Share your 90's experience with us via song, standup, or spoken word performance. We'll have exclusive treats and drinks for sale.

We're certain somebody will take us away to paradise. Are you that somebody? 

 

*warning: may include angst.

Patrick Coman Live

Open Mic Night - Leo Edition

Tuesday, August 19, 2014 - 7:30pm to 10:00pm

The lion is the king of the animals, right? And the sun is... well, rather important, too. That's why August's Open Mic Night is dedicated to the Leos of the world, who feel the earth is revolving around them, too. Are you big in Japan? Are you so vain, you think all songs are about you? (Or are you just a teenage dirtbag, like me?) Between the lion and sun symbology, and just the general need for some spotlight, there is a lot to be said to recognize the most attention-starved sign of the Zodiac. Ula certainly loves its Leos; let's spread the fever.

Save room for Open Mic-exclusive treats and drinks, and let the wild rumpus start!
