[Insert standard apology for lack of posts with excuse of busy summer time obligations of work and child]
In an effort to keep regular content flowing on this site, I’m going to do a daily post highlighting shows that I think are worth your well-earned time and money.
Caminiti, an erstwhile member of Barn Owl, brings his beautiful guitar/drone expressions to Portland for a rare solo appearance. His music will be accompanying a visual art piece from Cybele Lyle that, according to the website, is a “a video/spatial collage, bringing together photography, video and the architectural space of Disjecta to create a third space.” He’s joined by the ever brilliant bass clarinet/synth duo Golden Retriever and San Francisco-based experimentalists Names.
One of the city’s coolest stores, CV is hosting a pair of electronic acts as part of their Modular BBQ (bring your own food to grill). Both create dark, expansive material created, yes, using modular synthesizers.
EATQS takes the enrapturing qualities of shoegazer pop and manages to make them their own, a rare feat in this era of straight up MBV copycat acts. They share the stage with the goth-leaning rockers Smoke Rings who celebrate the release of a new cassette tonight.
