EXES

EXES

Imbued with sentimentality and inspired by the people, places and things in their lives, EXES - fronted by Allie McDonald and producer Mike Derenzo - invite listeners into the whimsically romantic world of their design. In late summer and fall of 2019, EXES played a handful of shows supporting Yoke Lore and SYML, respectively. In November 2019, EXES played and sold out their first headline show (at LA's The Echo). Since then, they've released an emotional duet with Petey titled "Bloodoath", a delicate alternative pop EP titled Nothing Ever Ends, and a collaborative cover of Dashboard Confessional's single "Don't Wait" (featuring 2020 vocals from frontman Chris Carrabba). In late 2020, they also saw Kelly Clarkson cover their song "Cain" on The Kelly Clarkson Show, and saw a ‘Behind The Song' TikTok segment shoot up to 250k views in a matter of a few days (the segment shares the backstory of "Cain"). EXES - known for their sweet indie-pop sensibilities heard on "Cain" (15.5M Spotify streams) and "Taxi" (12.8M) - are now turning the page on their previous chapter, and returning to the indie rock and alternative sound they grew up on. The duo's early 2022 LP Don't Give Up On Me Now will be released via Independent (KYLE, Yuna, Between Friends).

An oasis below the Crystal

The little sister of the historic Crystal Ballroom, Lola's Room is located on the second floor, directly below the Crystal. If you're a fan of DJ'd dance events, raging local rock showcases or intimate seated performances, then take a moment and bookmark this page.

The navigation menu at left is your roadmap to Lola's Room and the other offerings at the corner of 14th & Burnside. Check out what's coming up on the Events Calendar, let us host your next party or simply investigate our brewery, artwork and history.

A night at Lola's Room should always include a stop by Ringlers Pub or Ringlers Annex, where the vibe will fit your mood -- great pub fare, handcrafted beverages, engaging conversation, a good pool game, a rowdy party or a groovy DJ in a dimmed setting.

Never stop exploring! This website is a continual work in progress, and will develop over time. Watch for photo tours, sound samples from upcoming acts and much more. Meanwhile, be our guest, wander and enjoy!

If you cannot make the tour, stamps for the Crystal Ballroom and Lola’s Room are also available when you see a show. The shows can be ticketed or free – as long as you’re attending an event in the venue, you can get that room’s stamp.
