Odd pairings are all the rage. Snoop Dog + Martha Stewart. Pizza + Pineapple. Silent Discos. And with summer’s return, Fremont’s beloved arcade bar Add-A-Ball gives us another mismatched masterpiece—Pinball + Porch Shows. With a good band, heavy pours from the bar, and a floor-to-ceiling mural of Patrick Swayze, this venue is a hotspot for adult recreation. 

Each Sunday, from June through August, the alley-side arcade bar will transform their stoop into a free show featuring local bands. What’s a better spot to bring a summer fling?

Here’s the July lineup: 

The musical stylings of Marco Marco 
Soulful singer The Maya Experience 
Punk string trio the Clam Slam Jammers 

Piano-punk rockers Crazy eyes
Disco Dance synth stars Shark Legs
Prog Punk band Bad Optics

No Shows 

Just a man and his band: Johnny G & The Music Factory 
All gurl PDX rockers Poolboy 
Celestial soothers Fine Arts
