Horse Feathers

Hollow Wood + Sara Jackson-holman

Friday, Oct 31 | 8pm

Some quick true/false facts about the band Horse Feathers and their new album, So It Is With Us:

1. The record was partially recorded in a barn in a beautiful pastoral setting in rural Oregon
(true, but hasn’t everybody done this now?)

2. The band lives in Portland, OR
(also true, and they are consciously and unconsciously living breathing stereotypes just like the
ones portrayed in Portlandia)

3. Horse Feathers last album charted on Billboard by selling fewer records than they had in the past
(true, but maybe more a comment on the music industry as…

Marshall McLean Band

Saturday, Nov 8 | 8pm

The Marshall McLean Band was born out of the Northwest, and it carries with it the unique sound that is becoming distinct to this part of the country.  The four-piece band, based out of Spokane, has brought forth a fresh idea; that one can merge elements of thoughtful songwriting in folk, the driving force of rock, and the melodic accessibility of Americana and carve out a new genre – a kind of NW Americana Rock.

One of Spokane’s favorite songwriters, McLean manages to write songs without pretension.  He…

Shook Twins

Saturday, Nov 15 | 8pm

“I love the harmonies of the Shook Twins, the dreamlike songs that seem somehow permeated by the American Folk tradition, without actually being part of it. They make music that twines through your soul the way vines cover an abandoned shack in the woods.” – Neil Gaiman, New York Times – Best-Selling Author

Born and raised in Sandpoint Idaho, Shook Twins are an Indie folk-pop band now hailing from coniferous forested Portland, Oregon. Identical twins, Katelyn and Laurie Shook, Kyle Volkman and Niko Daoussis form the core quartet. Central elements of the Shook Twins’ sound are…

David Bazan + Passenger String Quartet

David Dondero

Wednesday, Nov 19 | 8pm

The seed for this album was planted during a one-off show back in 2012. Bazan was invited to play a show in Tacoma WA with the Passenger String Quartet. PSQ leader Andrew Joslyn put together string arrangements for 4 songs and it was an enjoyable evening for all. They immediately began talking about doing it again and eventually started talking about making proper studio recordings of these songs. But it took nearly two years for everyone’s schedules to line up again. In February 2014, they were able to spend a…

Barcelona

Friday, Nov 21 | 8pm

Close your eyes and imagine your second kiss. Forget the first one, that nervous smooch fueled by hormones and peer pressure, and fast forward to the one where you get it right. Maybe it was an intense make-out to slow jams on the Homecoming dance floor, or in the backseat of the Honda you borrowed from your mom. But in the glow of the headlights or neon nights, if you listened closely, you’d hear Barcelona.

The Seattle-based trio Barcelona makes soulfully sultry rock seeped in synth wash and falsetto that…

Busdriver

Sunday, Nov 23 | 8pm

Busdriver is fixed as one of LA music’s most dynamic indie artists. From his years as a cypher phenom at Project Blowed to his years as a recording artist on Epitaph to his current role as co-head of Hellfyre Club, Busdriver has always challenged rap in the most particular and thoughtful of ways.

BD’s first record, ‘Memoirs of the Elephantman’, was self released thru Afterlife records (a Project Blowed subcrew at the time) in 1999. Not until his second self-released record, ‘Temporary Forever’, came out in 2002 did Busdriver step on the world stage….

New Year’s Eve with Lavoy + Normal Babies + Pine League

Wednesday, Dec 31 | 9pm

As an indie rock band from the remote outpost of Wasilla, Alaska, Lavoy had to contend with quite a few distinct challenges. Touring meant driving a minimum of eight hours to the next city. Wintertime meant round the clock darkness and below freezing temperatures – less than ideal conditions for dragging musicians out to nightly six-hour rehearsals. It was also very likely that no matter how many bars it played on Saturday nights the group’s celebrity status would never surpass that of the local dog mushers.

Singer-songwriter Tyrell L. Tompkins reckons…
