When I started this blog last June, I honestly didn’t expect the response I have received thus far to be so warm and enthusiastic. Nor did I expect that some eight months later I would be helping host an Experimental Portland Presents… show at one of the best venues in the city, Mississippi Studios.
Tonight is the first one of these monthly events and I couldn’t be more thrilled about the lineup. Here is who is playing with some sound clips to hopefully get you even more excited about it:
I sure hope to see some of you there tonight.
In case you missed the announcement on Twitter today, a pretty thrilling bit of news just came to light today: starting next month, Experimental Portland will be collaborating on a monthly concert series with the good people at Mississippi Studios. Together, we’re going to curate some amazing bills featuring national and international acts as well as pulling from our amazing pool of local talent.
The first one of these shows are already set to happen on February 28th, with this incredible lineup — Blues Control, Plankton Wat, and Fang Moon.
You can expect to hear more about each of these acts in the weeks to come here on the blog, but for right now, we’ll give you a taste of each one for your listening pleasure.
Before that, I’d like to emphasize how completely agog I am about all of this. When I started this little venture, I didn’t realize how starved this region was for news and music from the underground/experimental scene. And it has taken off in ways I could never have imagined. So, please accept my thanks for reading and supporting the blog, for supporting the shows that we’ve already done, and have/will have lined up for the future.
