Today In Experimental Portland – Sunday, July 28 2013

If you’re not doing as I’m doing tonight, which is to head about a half hour north of Portland to drink in the massive prog-pop/proto-metal sounds of a certain Canadian trio, there’s a couple of options to keep you entertained in closer proximity to home.

Leisure LLC + Jeans Wilder + Emotional @ Valentines 9pm  

I’ve been a fan of Jon Jurow, the musician, for a number of years after hearing his work in the starlight glinted arch pop duo Chrome Wings. With that group sadly on the shelf, Jurow now concentrates his efforts on booking amazing shows at Valentines and creating even more far-reaching shimmers of sound with his new project Leisure LLC.

Sadgiqacea + Atriarch + Hivelords @ The Know 8pm

 Attendance at this show would be mandatory enough to catch the sonic shockwaves of death metal monsters Atriarch in the cozy confines of The Know, but allow me to urge you to get there early to take in the set by Pennsylvania-based ambient metal group Sadgiqacea, a duo that oozes sludge and lava-like heat.


Meth Dad + Yer Heart + Consumer + Linux SKNRD @ The Point, 9114 N Lombard 8pm

This show would be worth your while for the appearance of a pair of bands from Nashville – including the candyskin pop of Meth Dad – but this is also the first performance of Linux SKNRD, a new dance-oriented project from Jason Morales aka Abusive Consumer.
