Maker Faire at the Factory Bar

This Sunday, October 22, don't miss our second Maker's Faire! We have 15 local Artists and Artisans bringing their amazing work to The Factory Bar. From paintings to jewelry to chocolates to books! Our last faire in August was amazing, and we can't wait for this one. Here are just a few of the artists you'll see this weekend!


ALEX JORDAN at Baltic Kiss

Alex Jordan's Queen Kerosene is a melting pot of American roots music, stacked high with sharply-written songs that blur the boundaries between genre and generation. Helmed by four-time Grammy Awards-winning producer (and longtime Los Lobos member) Steve Berlin, it's a colorful, kaleidoscopic record whose songs make room for soul, Tex-Mex, groove-driven R&B, Americana, jazz, honky-tonk, and heartland rock & roll. "I love different tempos, different styles of music, different eras, and different artists," says Jordan, a Bay Area native whose eclectic career reflects his wide-ranging influences. "As a songwriter, there's where I'm coming from. I'm coming from a background that spans decades and genres, and Steve helped me boil that down into something specific." Sunday, October 22, 2023, 8 p.m. - 11:55 p.m.
